Microwave your eggs?
PhillyBoy jumped out of bed one morning and ran into the kitchen, ready to make himself breakfast.
I was confused.
He normally sluggishly wakes up, checks work email on his phone, and meanders directly over to the shower. That morning, however, he had other plans. I don’t know if he read it somewhere or had a dream about them, but his idea was to microwave his eggs.
We don’t cook anything in the microwave, and usually its only use is to heat up PB’s dinner right after I serve it. He likes his dinner scorching hot and while it saddens me to have to microwave it right off the stove, it is non-negotiable for him.
Back to that morning… he whipped out a ramekin and sprayed it with olive oil. Then he poured in 2 beaten eggs and popped them in the micro for 1 minute. When done he topped them with a bit of shredded mozzarella and popped the ramekin back in the microwave for 10 seconds.
The result? A beautiful ramekin of 2 eggs that slipped right out onto his prepared toast. GENIUS!
Now whenever we are in a major rush for breakfast we simply use his microwaved eggs technique to pull together a quick, balanced breakfast.
Any other time saving ideas in the kitchen?
