Directions

  1. Fill a 1-cup (or larger) bowl (or mug) with 1/2 cup of water.
  2. Add a pinch of salt to the water if you like.
  3. Crack an egg into the bowl; make sure the egg is completely submerged.
  4. Cover the top of the bowl with a small plate or saucer.
  5. Microwave on HIGH power for 1 minute.
  6. Remove from microwave and check to see if white of the egg is firm.
  7. If the egg white or the yolk needs more cooking, re-cover the bowl and microwave on HIGH for another 15 seconds.*.
  8. Using a slotted serving spoon or large fork, carefully transfer the egg to your toast, your plate, etc., and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  9. *Please note that microwave cooking times will vary.When I make this, I take the egg out after 1 minute on HIGH and flip it over in the bowl, re-cover, and cook on HIGH for another 15 seconds.
