Microwave Egg Express Recipe

Making these eggs takes about as long as long and is as easy to make as a piece of toast! Don’t believe us? Try it and see for yourself!

Equipment

  • Microwave oven
  • Custard cup or coffee cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Fork
  • Plastic wrap
  • Oven mitts

  • Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon butter or margarine
  • 1 egg

  • Directions Microwave the butter or margarine in the custard or coffee cup on high (100% power) for 15 seconds or until it’s melted (the butter, not the cup!). Swirl the melted butter inside the cup to butter all sides. Break the egg into the cup and pierce it with a fork. Cover the cup with plastic wrap but leave one corner up to let air out. Microwave again, this time on medium-high (70% power), for 35-45 seconds. The egg will still look uncooked, so let it stand inside the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes, with the plastic wrap still on and untouched. Then, using the oven mitts, take it out of the microwave and eat!

    Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family

    Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
