Cook a perfect microwave egg in 2 minutes without special gear - unless you consider a paper coffee cup and a fork special, that is. Never fails, always moist and delicious. Why compromise?
Years of experimentation from college dorm living, to bachelor pad, to road-warrior have perfected this egg-tech.
Spray or butter a paper coffee cup, slap in an egg and some water, microwave 1 minute at 30 percent power, inspect and nuke it again.
Serve with your choice of condiments, salt, pepper, spices, hot sauce, jam, ketchup.
Step 1: Butter Cup
A cardboard coffee cup is your best bet.
Do not use a ceramic mug or cup.
And avoid using a wax paper cold cup or a styrofoam coffee cup.
Lightly coat the cup with cooking spray, or wipe the inside of the cup with olive oil, salad oil, butter or margarine on a paper towel.
