You should never stop learning and today I learned that you can cook eggs in a microwave and it takes much less time to cook them in a microwave than it does on a stove. However, it's not a good idea to microwave eggs that are still inside their shell because pressure can quickly build-up and they will explode.
I discovered this method of cooking eggs by chance. The other day at the supermarket we saw a new product called Just Crack An Egg and decided to take a gamble and spend $2.49 on one. In less than two minutes Just Crack an Egg gives you a hot, fluffy breakfast scramble bowl. It's billed as “the first product on the market that offers a hot, savory egg scramble in under two minutes, just by adding a fresh egg.”
Each individual serving cup contains a combination of diced vegetables, Oscar Mayer breakfast meat, Kraft Natural Cheese shreds and Ore-Ida potatoes.
The choices are:
Denver Scramble - Potatoes, milded cheddar cheese, green peppers, onions and smoked ham
All American Scramble – Potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese and uncured bacon
Ultimate Scramble – Potatoes, mild cheddar cheese, green and red peppers, onions and pork sausage
Rustic Scramble – Potatoes, mozzarella cheese, red peppers, onions, turkey sausage (yuk!) and mushrooms (double yuk!)
The product comes in a small plastic bowl with the ingredients in small plastic packages. You empty the ingredients into the bowl, add an egg and stir. Microwave for 40 seconds, stir and microwave another 30 seconds. The result is a fluffy scramble egg resembling an omelet.
This product is probably a gamble on the company's part because consumers may not accept the idea, but personally I expect to be a customer.
Surprise...it tasted like a scrambled egg omelet.
It was fast and not near as messy as fixing one on the stove and I can see having one for quick breakfast or a mid-morning snack at work. All-in-all a good product worth trying.
