Filling a pot with water, putting eggs in it, having it reach a boil for 5 minutes, drenching the eggs with cold water afterwards. All of that is sooo much work.
So, I would like to see a consensus as to how long to microwave 2 eggs at one time.
Once that consensus is reached, I will try it and report back to you.
The adventure here is that different microwaves are different. Yes they are. So we shall see how it goes.
Ah well, this is a tricky one! Do you like your eggs soft or hard boiled, are they small, medium or large?? Personally, if I'm going to "do" an egg in the microwave, I use an egg thingymabob. I break egg into thingymabob and pierce the yolk with a cocktail stick. Then I add 1/2 teaspoon of water and cook on full power for about 40 seconds, checking periodically to make sure egg has set and cooking for longer periods if not.
I'm beginning to think the boiling pot is easier...
It is, and you don't have to rinse in cold water after boiling, unless of course you want cold eggs.
Actually, bless fellow hubbers hearts, who told me this and it is true, doing the cold water thing right after boiling makes them much easier to peel.
Nuking the Chicken is by far the easiest if you tie it's feet first!
Exactly what I do sometimes, have it down to exactly 56 seconds to make a beautiful poached egg with just a slightly soft center.
Yeah, I tried boiling eggs in the microwave once. Once was enough.
Apparently the microwave overheated. The door blew open and the eggs splattered all over the wall. What a mess.
Be careful, or "egg on your face" will become a reality not an expression.
Did you forget to pierce yolk? A terrible mess will ensue if yolk not pierced.
I had seriously wondered about that...
I think I'll defer this particular experiment.
Don't microwave (unscrambled) eggs unless you want to suffer 1st or 2nd degree burns...
Two eggs: crack them into a bowl. Nuke for 1:15. Stir. Nuke for 15 seconds more.
Perfectly scrambled eggs every time.
As to boiling - eh, you got me.
Also, if you're going to season them...do so when you stir. If you want to add cheese, throw it on (or in) before putting them in for the final 15 seconds.

The best way to hard boil an egg?
by Christin Sander 9 years ago
How do you get hard boiled eggs to turn out perfectly and be easy to peel?I suspect my eggs may be too fresh, seeing as how they are straight from the coop and only a few days old. I've tried removing from heat and steaming, adding salt to the water and my eggs are still always hard to peel...

How can I prevent the pot from turning black when hard boiling eggs?

A group of researchers working at the Human Genome Project indicate that they made an astonishing scientific discovery: They believe so-called 97% non-coding sequences in human DNA is no less than genetic code of extraterrestrial life forms. http://www.agoracosmopolitan.com/home/F …...

What is your method for cooking a perfect hard boiled egg?It may seem obvious, but I've found that everyone has little things they do differently to get a perfect, easy to peel egg.
