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!

You never really know how they feel or why they act the way they do. I am totally with Kirsten and just like her there is no one that I particularly hate or anything and f they do something that you hate there may be a reason behind it and we can't judge them on that :3

She is 15 so she is older than me and thinks she is the boss of me and sometimes she pulls my hair or hits me. Does anyone else have annoying siblings? I hate my sister she punches me in the face but sometimes she is nice
