5 Minute Perfect Deli-style Egg Bagel Sandwich in Microwave - Yummy

Featured
I love egg sandwiches, especially on bagels or croissants from the deli or coffee shop. They're the perfect amount of protein and carbs to jump start your day, especially with a really good cup of coffee.

You may be surprised to know that you can make one of these sandwiches really quickly at home with you microwave - no previous experience or culinary skills required! No pans, spatulas, or big clean-up chores afterwards. And when rushing out the door to work, these are as quick as a bowl of instant oatmeal.

You probably have the ingredients in your kitchen already. If not, they're cheap and easy to include in your next trip to the store.

So let's get started....

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
You will need the following ingredients:

  • - 1-2 Fresh Eggs
  • - Fresh Bagel
  • - Some Cheese (best grated, but not essential)
  • - Knob of Butter
  • - Slice of Cooked Ham
  • - Milk (optional)
  • - Salt, Pepper, other seasoning to taste
You will need the following Tools:

  • - A microwave-safe cup
  • - Fork
  • - Paper towel
  • - Small plate

Step 2: The Secret Butter Step

This step makes all the difference to a successful outcome.

Put a small knob of butter in the cup (about the size of your thumb) and microwave it for 20 seconds. This will melt the butter without scorching it. Swirl the melted butter around the bottom of the cup to coat the inside of the cup. Apart from the flavor butter gives your eggs, this step reduces the microwaved eggs' tendency to stick to your cup and make things difficult.

Be careful to not spill/splash any hot butter as it could burn you.

Water produces a lighter egg, while milk or cream produces a smoother, creamier egg.
my favorite beverage is whiskey...am i good?
also great sandwhich
just made this but with toast and slice of cheese on the ham instead of in the egg
it was wonderful
perfect midnight snack that took less than 5 minutes to make
Just tried it. They turned out extremely fluffy and almost fell out of the cup because of that. This might be the only method of cooking eggs I'll be using for awhile.

You're my breakfast hero
Awesome instructable, had to make mines with an onion bagel and thin sliced turkey. Being that was all that was available it is indeed true that "necessity is the mother of invention"
