Can you tell me how you do that? I never tried to prepare eggs in a microwave, after hearing that you should never try it.

i think there might be a little dodad thingie you can buy to poach an egg in a microwave. i'm not sure....i think i saw it in the grocery store. (have to remember to look for it tomorrow).
i don't think you should try to boil eggs in a microwave though...they'd probably blow up and there would be egg shrapnel all over!

Ok, here goes. I haven't done this in a long time so my memory may be
faulty. Take custard cup or any type of small microwave safe bowl. Fill about
with a third of a cup of water. Dash of white vinegar. Break egg into bowl and
prick yolk with fork. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for I think 90 seconds.

Yes, you have to poke a hole in the yolk or that will explode in the microwave, the white part doesn't do anything. That's why they say not to cook eggs in it, if you poke the yolk and then cover the whole thing you shouldn't have a problem. Just don't over cook it or the whites will be like rubber. Shocked

OK - tried it this morning, and will definitely do it again, however, it popped quite a bit whether I pricked the yolk or not, and if I gave it a full minute, the yolk was fully set. To get the proper runny yolk, I believe I'll have to take it out at about 35 seconds in my microwave. The whites were nice and fluffy, and they were very tasty. We served them over a toasted English muffin that we had covered with a little prosciutto ham. Yummy!

i think it might take a couple eggs to get the timing right like you found out. every microwave like every oven is just a little bit different.

i made a joke last night about breakfast muffins made with cheerios and someone found me a recipe! i need something i can eat in the morning fast BUT will stay with me and won't make me sick. i ate oatmeal for a long time but it kept getting sick at work and i was hungry half an hour later!i need to get some baking soda and a couple bananas and try it. it sounds like it would taste good AND be good for ya.

White Sausage Gravy
From Food Network Kitchens

.Prep Time:5 min
Inactive Prep Time:--
Cook Time:15 min
Level:
Easy
Serves: about 4 to 6 main course servings.

Ingredients
•One 12-ounce tube bulk pork sausage
•2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
•2 cups milk
•Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
•Baking Powder Biscuits

Directions
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, break it up with a wooden spoon, and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a bowl, leaving the rendered fat in the skillet. Whisk the flour into the fat and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. While whisking, pour the milk into the skillet and bring the gravy to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 2 minutes. Stir in the sausage and season with pepper. Split the biscuits in half and divide them among plates. Top each biscuit with some of the gravy and serve immediately.

This is more of a suggestion than a recipe. When making whipping cream add
a little honey to it instead the usual additions. Ole did that this morning and it is to
die for.

Mmmmmmm, it sure sounds good Sue! I'd love to have some of that with fresh strawberries, peaches, or blueberries.

Doesn't the heaviness of the honey deflate the whipping cream? It sounds divine, but I would not have tried it because of this.

No, it didn't and I was surprised too. Just remember with honey a little goes a long way.

i'm thinking he might have only used a few drops..or more than an eyedropper full.
gee, i didn't think people still whipped their own cream until they were the FoodNetwork:)

(i see they carry that powdered Whipped Cream stuff at the grocery store....i can't remember what its called but i remember using that to make whipped cream as a kid!)

Real home whipped whipped cream is the best, JB! It's nothing like Redi Whip in a can. I think you're thinking of a product called Dream Whip. I don't know if I've ever had that.

yes! Dream Whip! they still make it and they sell it at the grocery store i go to. i was looking at it and thinking about the fluffy pudding pies i used to make. can't get it though cuz i not only don't have a mixing bowl right now but i don't have a hand mixed. (i don't think i could do it right with just a whisk?).

It's a lot easier with a hand mixer. Maybe Santa Paws will send you one for Christmas with
some mixing bowls.

Y'all will probably laugh at me because you probably already know this, but try to remember that I DO NOT COOK so this is new to me.

I live in the South, as you know, and this is corn season. Fresh, sweet local corn everywhere! One thing I love love love is corn on the cob. I haven't had it for years because I can't see boiling a big pot of water for one ear of corn (if my stove even still works... been a while since it was on). But I found out you can roll an ear of corn in a paper towel, microwave it for 3-4 minutes, and it's done! Ready to roll in butter and salt and EAT!! I am pigging out! Bought a stick of butter and unclogged my salt shaker and everything. Oh, what bliss!

Good heavens, Suzzzz! I didn't know you were so anti-cooking that you wouldn't know THAT!! I know you don't eat much meat, but you can apply that same general "cooking" technique to a couple of strips of bacon too.

sue if i really was jonesin' for a mixer i could probably just wait til the grocery store or Burlington had 'em for $10. (I'm just cheap...but ya know i might break down and get one). BUT if anyone finds some tupperware mixing bowls at a garage sale or something cheapy cheap i could use those:) (one thing i really wish i could have gotten from the farm if i had known i was never going back were my mom's few tupperware mix and store clear bowls..esh!)

question about the corn...do you wet the paper towels or just wrap dry ones around the corn?

now here's a question i'm throwing out.... i was told you can boil an egg in the microwave but you have to poke a hole in one end. i started to wonder though... 1) is it hard to poke the hole (I figure with a pin...but how big of a pin?) and 2) do you then put it in a bowl or water? and 3) what timing do you use??
