All you need to know about: How To Cook An Egg In A Microwave.


Cooking an egg in the microwave is a quick and easy way to prepare an egg for a meal or snack. Here are the steps to follow for a perfectly cooked egg every time:

Step 1: Gather the Materials

To cook an egg in the microwave, you will need the following materials:

– 1 egg
– A microwave-safe bowl
– Cooking oil, butter, or cooking spray
– Salt and pepper (for seasoning, optional)

Step 2: Preparing the Egg

Before cooking the egg, it needs to be prepared. Crack the egg into the bowl and add a tablespoon of cooking oil, butter, or cooking spray. This will help keep the egg from sticking to the bowl.

Step 3: Cook the Egg

Place the bowl in the microwave and set the timer for 30 seconds. After the timer goes off, remove the bowl and stir the egg with a fork. This will help cook the egg evenly. Place the bowl back in the microwave and cook for another 30 seconds.

Step 4: Check for Doneness

Remove the bowl from the microwave and check the egg for doneness. If the egg is not cooked to your liking, add another 30 seconds of cooking time. Continue adding time in 30 second increments until the egg is cooked to your desired doneness.

Step 5: Season and Serve

Once the egg is cooked to your liking, season with salt and pepper (optional). Serve the egg in the bowl or transfer to a plate before serving. Enjoy!
