Boiling an egg is one of those things that people just assume you know how to do. You get water and eggs and boil them, right? Well, not quite. Don’t fret. I know it’s embarrassing that you even had to ask how to boil an egg, but it happened and here we are. No judgement here, we all start somewhere. Let’s dive right in!
Well, prepare yourself for a little trial and error. The instructions are similar to those listed above, but cooking times will vary depending on the wattage of your microwave and how you like your eggs cooked. And you know what happens if you overcook an egg in its shell, right? It explodes. E.V.E.R.Y.W.H.E.R.E. If you’re okay with exploded eggs, let’s move on!
For a ‘golden egg’ shake the egg vigorously before placing it in the pan. That’s somewhere between a tambourine, and a paint can shaker. Then cook as per above, when it comes out the entire egg will be a golden yellow colour. Fun morning after party trick or cool for those who are totally into Willy Wonka.
Next time you’re at the supermarket or $2 shop keep your eyes peeled (egg pun intended) for a submersible egg timer. It will probably be an egg-shaped plastic thing that changes colour as the water heats. As it does it gives you an indication of how cooked, your eggs are. They are a lifesaver in this house. So handy.
