Cooking Eggs in a Microwave Oven
For successful cooking of eggs in your microwave, keep these few points in mind:
EGGS MICROCOOKED IN THEIR SHELLS WILL EXPLODE!
Omelets, scrambled eggs and poached eggs microcook well on full power (high).
Even out of the shell eggs may explode in the microwave because rapid heating causes a buildup of steam. Always use a wooden pick or tip of a knife to break the yolk membrane of an unbeaten egg before microcooking to allow the steam to escape.
Covering cooking containers with a lid, plastic wrap or wax paper encourages more even cooking and - if you forgot to prick the yolks - helps to confine the explosion!
