Microwave Fried Egg Options

Both scrambled eggs and basic cooked eggs can be made right in the microwave for an easy and high-protein breakfast. To make easy basic eggs in the microwave, spray a small bowl, mug, custard cup, or ramekin with diabetic friendly cooking spray. Carefully break the egg into the container. Then, pierce the egg with a fork four or five times to prevent the egg from creating a mess in the microwave. If desired, add in salt, pepper, or any other flavor seasoning that is desired. Cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap, venting the corner if doing so with the plastic wrap. Place in the microwave and microwave on power for at least one minute for a medium cooked egg. Cooking times could vary with microwaves, so make certain to check on it after the one minute mark and cook until the desired level of done, with small time intervals. Allow to stand for 1 minute to allow the egg to settle in. To serve the microwave fried egg, simply place it on a bed of toast or eat it straight from the bowl with any healthy toppings. For a very runny egg, decrease the cooking time to 40 seconds. It should be kept in mind that consuming raw and under-cooked foods could lead to food poisoning or other risks. For individuals with immune disorders and other health concerns, it is advisable to consult with a doctor about diet changes that involve more under cooked and raw foods.
