Microwave cooking

I donīt think we have a cookery forum so this will have to do.
I only want 1 soft boiled egg for my breakfast, seems daft just 1 rattling round in the saucepan, so internet says it can be done in the microwave in a bowl of water and cover the egg with water, only having 1 egg I used a very large cup, covered egg with cold water and


It went bang very loudly.

So using the same cup, oiled, egg in 40secs on high, perfect.



The bread is my first attempt made with a magi-mix, so quick and easy, unfortunately I put a bit too much water in and its a bit wholly, but it tastes very good, better than shop bread, not quite up to my usual home baked bread, but this is my first attempt.
Cooked in a conventional oven not microwaved, yet

I like a boiled dippy egg though the `friedī egg works in a cup as you see, the boiled egg didn't werk
maybe because I forgot to put salt in the water as the youtube instructions said, perhaps that can make a difference, I donīt know.

Poaching is better Jan. You can get single ones. Perfect by practice.

I can see, on the first attempt, that you put the egg in the cup in its shell. What did you do on the second attempt? It looks amazing

We have a panasonic bread maker. It makes perfect wholemeal bread with no additives. We bake a whole loaf every other day. I always want to bring it away with us but Chris thinks it is a step too far The site we are on sell baguettes every morning so we do have fresh bread.

I'm not sure why the first eggshell broke, the cup is much bigger than the egg and I covered it with cold water as the YouTube Sid, but I didn't put salt in the water
The second one I put a few drop of olive oil in the bottom, swished it round and tipped out what didn't stick to the cup, broke the egg into it and cooked on full power for 40 seconds. It was quite a large egg, smaller ones would need less time. It slid out easily when I tipped the cup.

Making eggs explode in the microwave is great fun, as long as you don't have to clean it up of course.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Who else would clean it if not me only took a minute.

I canīt understand why 4 eggs can be boiled in a bowl of water and one egg canīt, it had almost finished cooking and would have been a lovely dippy egg.

Jan,

I’m told that to produce an unexploded boiled egg in the microwave, before starting to cook, you must either:

- add salt to the water
or
- make a small hole in the shell of the egg (using a needle or similar)

Regards,
John
