Eggs on Cutting Board

MicrowavedHard Boiled Eggs

This is an excellent way to prepare eggs for salads, etc. You won’t have to peel them either! Several eggs may be done at once, but they need to be rotated to cook evenly. Eggs take 45 seconds - 1 1/2 minutes per egg. A shorter time per egg is required when cooking several eggs. The reason for this is explained in "Dealing with Multiples" in Definitive Microwave Cookery II.


1 egg
nonstick cooking spray


Lightly spray small custard cup or other small microwave container. Crack egg into container. Pierce egg yolk gently. Cover and cook on Medium power (50%) for 45 seconds-1 1/2 minutes. Check egg after 45 seconds, and finish cooking at 15 second intervals until egg is solid. Let stand and cool before slicing or chopping.
