Step 1: Prep the Water & Initial Heat

Take the eggs out of the refrigerator.

Almost fill the bowl with water - leave room for the eggs.

Add about a tablespoon of vinegar - I don't actually measure. This makes the eggs much easier to peel when you are done.

Microwave on high for 3.5 minutes - note that this does not bring the water to boil. Your microwave will be slightly different, adjust accordingly.

Step 2: Add Eggs

Use a slotted spoon to add the eggs to the bowl of very warm water.

Close the microwave door to retain heat.

Wait 4 minutes.

Remove the eggs with the slotted spoon - I put them on a dish towel next to the microwave.

Step 3: For Hard 'boiled'

Microwave on high until the water in the bowl boils - I use a glass bowl so it's easy to see when this happens.

Put the eggs back in the water, close the door and wait 5 minutes.

Remove the eggs and re-microwave the water to boil.

Put the eggs back in the water, close the door and wait 6 minutes.

Remove the eggs. I put them in cold water for a few minutes to also help them peel easier.

Peel and enjoy!
