We love breakfast eggs! Whether they're hard-boiled, fried, scrambled, or poached, you can never go wrong with a good egg. But if you want to step up your egg game and try something new, these 5 egg hacks are sure to do the trick.
1. Poached Egg in the Microwave
- 4 fl oz water
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 1 egg
Add the water and vinegar to a mug, crack the egg over the mug, and microwave for 1 minute (place a saucer over the top of the mug for even better results). Drain the water from the mug and the enjoy the world's fastest and tastiest poached egg.
2. Soft-Boiled Egg in a Coffee Pot
- 10 cups of water (full coffee pot)
- 3 eggs
- coffee machine
Fill the coffee machine with water and put 3 eggs in the coffee pot. Turn on the machine, let the water run through, and leave the eggs in the coffee pot for about 10 minutes.
3. Mini Omelets
- 2 eggs
- salt & pepper to taste
- filling of your choice (we recommend rice, bell peppers, and chives)
- crème fraîche
4. Black Fried Eggs
- 3 eggs
- 5 oz black olives
Separate 3 eggs, add the egg whites and olives to a blender, and mix until smooth. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased pan over low heat and let it cook. Add the 3 egg yolks and continue to cook until it's just how you like it.
5. Fried Egg in the Microwave
- oil or butter
Heat the plate in the microwave for 2 minutes. Then add butter or oil to the plate, crack an egg on it, and lightly stab the top of the yolk with a sharp knife so it doesn't explode while cooking. Place the plate in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute and let it cool slightly before eating.
