Two-Step Eggs

Guys, you have no idea how sick I've been.

So sick. Oh, so sick.

I wasn't sick when I made these. Just for the record. I am a 100% ster-ile cooker. Egg-preparer. Rule-bender. I know this is breaking the rules, and that's not something I'm used to doing. I follow the rules; actually, I create many of them.

But tomorrow's Monday, which means scrambled eggs and fried potatoes are on the menu for breakfast. And after five days of battling a 105 degree temperature and the stomach flu, I'm just not into the other way of making these.

My mom taught me how to make these back in the day. Big surprise, right? She's got so many tricks up her sleeve, it's awe-inspiring. And honestly, Tim's a "mental" kinda' guy. The first time he actually saw how I made these, he insisted it was disgusting. Worst eggs ever. Tossed 'em in the trash. Not interested. Big baby stuff.

My big mistake? Making them when he was awake. God love him, I've been making these two-step eggs without his knowledge for probably a month now. No complaints. Just raving reviews on how I make the best eggs.

These are the best. They really are. This is also a test to see if he reads my blogs. Which he doesn't.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • Salt/pepper
  • Fresh seasonings (I'm thinking basil). Totally optional.

Grab your eggs. 

Crack them and pour both the yolk and whites into a mug (NOT a normal glass cup). Add the milk, salt and pepper, optional seasonings, and stir well with a fork.

Microwave for 90 seconds. Here's a general time table for how long to microwave eggs:
  • 1 egg-30 to 45 seconds
  • 2 eggs-1 to 1 1/2 minutes
  • 4 eggs-2 1/2 to 3 minutes
  • 6 eggs-3 1/2 to 4 1/2 minutes
  • 8 eggs-4 1/2 to 5 1/2 minutes

Place eggs on desired plate and using fork, gently break up eggs.

Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper. Serve with breakfast potatoes and bacon.

Feel free to make your normal eggs. Get your pans dirty and waste some time when you could be shaving your legs or packing lunches. Or just don't. Because Mondays are hard enough.

Love and ease,
