Microwave Egg Express Recipe

Did You Know: May Is National Egg Month

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!

    I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
