I did not know that one could microwave bacon...

    The grease is bubbling away... And there's enough there to give me a heart attack in one serving...

    Yes you could cook almost anything in a microwave, including bacon. lol

      What about raw hamburger? I know can microwave to defrost it. But cooking it?

        Yes, you could cook it in a microwave, it's just not recommended. lol

          I hate cleaning the messy skillet afterwords...

          Just as an experiment, I'm going to toss a small piece in there. See how gross it turns out... big_smile

            Do realize that the microwave cooks the inside before it cooks the outside. wink

            That's why it's not recommended to try cooking hamburger in a microwave. Not to mention, what do you plan on putting the hamburger on to cook it? A plate? In a bowl? Is the hamburger meat or in hamburger form?

            I wouldn't try it regardless. Mess up the skillet and wash the damn thing. Better tasting.

              That's what I figured. However, as opposed to washing it, I'll just leave it on the floor for the cat.

                  I cook bacon in the micro all the time...just put lots of paper towels underneath and on top of the bacon. This method isn't tree-friendly, but it works very well. You need more paper towels afterwards to sop up the grease that's still left on the bacon.

    You can cook a whole egg too, but you have to be right there the whole time. With starts and stops over a minute and 20 sec.

      You need to pierce the yolk of the egg, otherwise it explodes!

      Or trial and error until you figure out the exact settings for your microwave's wattage. (I have a microwave egg poacher that works fairly well, once I figured out that I needed the power at 70% for exactly 1 minute, 25 seconds. If I don't use exactly those numbers, it pops open and spits egg!)
