No. It will explode. Crack it into a little bowl/cup and cook it that way.
...butter the cup...
I wonder if anyone has tried putting an egg into a bowl of boiling hot water and microwaving it.

It might work, but you would probably have to put it on low power so it doesn't boil too frantically.

There is the danger of Tilly being right. It might explode leaving a horrible watery mess in the oven.
You can, but should you.? Report back .
Boil it in the kettle.
Went to stay with a friend once and she boils eggs in the microwave and i`ve seen it done. You wrap it in tin foil and put it in a mug of water and put it in the microwave.
... then buy a new kettle.
I could just eat egg on toast now.
Boil the water in a kettle, pour in to a bowl. Add salt to the water, crack the egg in to the bowl, cover and leave for 5 minutes. You should have a perfect poached egg
Tin foil in a microwave ?
Maybe try it after piercing the shell first ? Report back ?
(Don't use a metal saucepan.)
Or scramble the egg with butter, milk, salt and pepper and microwave for a few minutes, stirring every 30 seconds
Yes ann. I was staying with a friend in Australia and that's how we cooked our eggs every day
no poach it
small cup
half with water
dash vinegar
45s
perfick every time
It's not simply a ban on metal in the microwave, it's about avoiding folds and pointy bits where the sparks form. Maybe around an egg shape and under water it is less likely to flash ?
I wouldn't put foil in a microwave. Are you sure it wasn't a microwave/oven?
You don't need to use the tinfoil to boil an egg in the microwave
It was definitely a microwave.
