My dad isn’t an awesome cook (sorry dad) but he can make one serious egg….in the microwave.

Yes. The microwave.

It’s amazing what 40 seconds of electromagnetic waves can do to a chicken egg. Seriously. It’s fast and pretty darn tasty. Just make sure you seriously spray your tea cup with PAM and cover that bad boy – or you get egg that refuses to come off the cup and a huge mess in the microwave.

If you cook them right, you have the first ingredient to an incredibly tasty treat.


Your own Egg McMuffin – without the stop at the drive-thru.

Guys, my girls love these, my husband loves these and it might be one of my favorites, too. A English Muffin a little cheese, a little ham and scoche of butter and your glorious microwave egg – and you’re set for a tasty, speedy breakfast (or lunch, dinner or heck – even snack!).

Now, can you make your egg on the stove for this recipe? You bet. But why? This is easier people. And easy makes me smile.

Enjoy! Oh – and be sure to thank my dad for the tip!
