12 Easy Ways To Cook Eggs In A Microwave

You can poach ‘em, you can scramble ‘em, you can even make an omelet.

Look, no one should really cook eggs in a microwave if there’s a stove nearby. Because they’re just not going to taste as good. (And cooking eggs using traditional methods, repeatedly, will make you a better, cleaner, and faster cook.) But microwave eggs happen. Maybe because you live in a dorm room, or maybe you want to poach an egg in your office’s kitchen and add it the leftovers you brought for lunch. There are ways. Know that all microwaves are different and it is important to be patient while testing to see what works best. Also — eggs cook fast, especially in a microwave, so keep an eye on them while they cook.
