Okay I am making scrambled eggs with polish sausage fried up fopr dinner tonight for dad & I. I am adding milk, Mrs. Dash and some onions to the eggs mixing them. Now I wanted to nuke them in the microwave but I am not too sure about this. Can it be done? I've never cooked eggs in a nuke. How easily can it be done as well? Do you have a special way of making scrambled eggs for yourself and or family/friends? Please share it here if you do. Thanks in advance all. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Thanks. Do they have a rubbery consistency to them after being nuked? I have set an egg in my nuke and watched it explode just for kicks. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

So by looking through the glass when they appear as normal scrambled eggs they are done then? Roughly 2 minutes time? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I do not know how many minutes to nuke an egg. I do have a story of eggs in a microwave. When I was working as an RN on a busy cardiac/renal floor. When we would have patients who would have a procedure in the morning and they could not eat we would order their breakfast and hold it until the patient came back from the procedure and then warm it up in the microwave........... I had a patient come back from a procedure so I put their breakfast in the microwave. It was eggs and toast. I turned on the microwave and left to go and do something else. That day I think I had 7 or 8 patients to do all procedures and medications on. When I came back to get the breakfast my plate was there, the toast was there, but the eggs where gone, now who in the heck took my eggs. The little kitchen smelled so good. But who took my eggs. I could not believe someone came in and took my eggs off the plate and put the plate back in the microwave. I bent over to look in the microwave and the eggs where there. They had popped and where stuck to the top of the microwave. I had not broken the yolk of the egg and I did not know that would happen. I had to call the kitchen and confess what I did to the patient’s eggs. When I finally realized what I had done it was funny but at first I was so mad that someone took my patients eggs off the plate and put it back in the microwave.

I do not own a microwave oven, but from experiences in my youth where my dear mother tried to make me eggs in the microwave - I found it is not a good idea. AT least however she did it was not a good idea, they were so tough and rubbery. I reheat my eggs in the toaster oven in side of aluminum foil.

The mylot gremlins are still creating havoc with us, I never was notified about this discussion and any others that you posted today. Back to your questions. Microwaved eggs....yuck. Take the time and cook them on the stove, you can cook them in the microwave, but why would you want too. They only take a few minutes on the stove and will be so much better.

Oh sheesh. I have been getting a fair amount of response to most my new discussions today so it's another select few members that have the email glitch still. Good luck with this. I guess I wanted to be lazy is why? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

My sister makes scrambled eggs in the microwave for herself all the time. All she does it put hers in the nuker with a little bit of butter and cheese. Nuke for about 30 seconds, take em out, stir them, nuker em again, taken em out, stir again. If necessary nuke a little bit more. They come out fluffier than normal scrambled eggs. [/b]Warning[b] soak in the sink right away. The egg cooks on the bowl pretty good. My son and my niece love their eggs cooked this way.

Did you make them yet? How did they turn out? I have never cook eggs in the microwave. I'm not sure about cooking them that way. I usually make my scrambled eggs with milk, salt, pepper and a dash of sugar. Then we put them on top of toast. They come out really good.

Tasty Dinner - They look bad but boy did they taste good. I've never liked the looks of cooked eggs except hard boiled.
I made them on the stove actually. It was tasty as hell and dad wanted more. They were that good. I still haven't gotten a reply from anyone that does it in a nuker. Here's dinner for you. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

It CAN be done! But there's hardly any flavor. Ive cooked eggs both ways and rather take the extra time to fry them

Sure, you can nuke 'em. But don't be the 'typical man' and set it on high power for 10 minutes!

I have to ask, though. Why would you want to? Scrambled eggs on the stove only take a couple of minutes, and I think they come out more 'scrambled'. I put the eggs in a large measuring cup or small bowl, add just a dab of milk, a bit of salt and pepper and then a few stirs with a fork. Melt a bit of butter in your skillet, make sure its fairly hot (again, not high for 10 min), slide the egg mixture in there. Let it set for a minute or so, then just stir it around with a wooden spoon or whatnot. Piece of cake ... er, eggs.

Hello Ldyjarhead, you make a good point about why not using the stove. I must say that some apartments (the small ones that is) sometimes don't have stoves due to fire hazard. So they only allow the people to have microwave (and they usually have a "community kitchen"). I find that Egg Beaters (the brand that's in the cartoon Egg Substitute in the diary section) is very good at microwaving. Basically you just put it on for about two mintes and it reduces the clean up (no pans to clean like on the stove) and you don't need to use butter because the eggs don't stick :) Pablo

Hello Grandpa Bob! You ask about using the microwave with eggs, here's my stories: a) I used an omlet maker specially for the microwave, it turned out okay. The eggs cooked well, but they got stuck to the plate :((( and it was a mess to clean up all that mess from the plate. b) I used "Egg Beaters", the brand that is in the little cartoon that says "Eggs Substitute". They actually have a flavor that has chopped vegetables, I put them in a bowl and microwaved for about two mintues. I must confess the eggs didn't stick, and it was VERY good. Therefore I would recommend you to buy Egg Beaters because it seems to me that they microwave really well in the microwave :D Pablo
