I LOVE poached eggs for breakfast and a fast and easy way to poach them is in the microwave. I get a bowl and fill it about 1/3 with water and heat it for 2 minute in the microwave. I then crack open two eggs into the water and microwave for another minute. Once done, I gently pour out excess water and then add salt and pepper to taste. YUM!
How many places have you read that you can take a lunch sack and popcorn kernals and make your own DIY microwave popcorn? I never believed it - but it's true! Kernals in a brown bag, fold the top a few times and pop for about 2.5 minutes - today I topped mine with feta and smoked paprika! YUM!
Want to eat old-fashioned oatmeal, but don't have time for the stove, and it explodes in the microwave? Just set it in the microwave for 5 minutes on 50% power. Perfectly cooked, high-fiber, low-sugar breakfast! Better than instant oatmeal any day.
Just spread out a single layer evenly on a plate and microwave for 5-20 seconds. Start out at 5 seconds and increase in 5 second intervals until you get to know how strong your microwave is. Let it cool down and it will be as fresh and crunchy as new! Super easy solution to not wasting food!
Fill a mug full of water and microwave it for 1 minute. Then take out the mug and put in your bag of popcorn. Set to desired time. The "pre-heated" microwave will leave fewer unpopped kernels in the bag, and more popcorn for you to enjoy!
This makes for a fast and easy breakfast. The egg cooks up so that it can fit on an English Muffin (or a Whole Wheat Sandwich Thin.) Scramble up an egg, or egg whites - add in toppings like ham, cheese, spinach, onions, mushrooms, peppers etc and you have a yummy breakfast sandwich!
Looking for a fast and easy way to cook spaghetti or pasta with little clean up? Now you can use your microwave.
I use plastic bags, like the kind you receive your newspaper in, not like the ziplock kinds. I take a breast of chicken chop it up into bite size bits, take 1/2 potatoe and dice it up, dice up the veggies I like and add seasonings. I seal the bag closed [or you can tie it] and
I fell in love w/ veggies that come in steamer bags that you put directly in the microwave. So I was thrilled when these came out. They are so much less expensive than buying brand name veggies in single-use steamer bags. Put in any fresh or frozen veggies, fish or other meat, microwave away!
