Oh, the incredible edible egg! Don't be afraid to microwave the egg, it really is good. If you spray the bowl with some Pam first, the egg will slide right out and you won't have that cooked on egg that is impossible to scrub off your dishes. I only microwave one egg at about 45 seconds and then top it with cheese and microwave it for the last 15 seconds. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and viola. This is so versatile too. You can add bacon, sausage, ham, tomato, etc. And you can use any bread you have (sandwich, hamburger roll, English muffin, croissant, etc.) and it turns out great every time! So easy a man, I mean the kids could do it! Read More

Sort of like a home-made Egg McMuffin. It's pretty bland though. It will be better with some bacon or ham on it. I would recommend trying to toast this in the oven since the bottom piece of toast got soggy while microwaving to melt the cheese. Good base since it was so simple. I'll make it again but with my own adjustments. Read More

I had very little time this morning to make breakfast for the kids. This worked out great as my oldest boy could do this pretty much by the directions. I had one of those microwave omelette pans (which asks for two eggs wisked to be poured on each side). All he did was add salt and pepper to each wisked egg and cook it in the microwave omelette pan. Then he cut it in half to make two sandwiches. Good for them GREAT for me. NOTE: You might want to keep in mind that you may need to spritz your microwaveable container with non-stick spray before you cook your egg. Having made egg in the microwave before they do tend to want to stick pretty bad if you don't. Read More

Pretty good - watch your egg timing though...my first one blew up in the microwave. I used a toasted English muffin and added some bacon. YUM! Read More

ADDED TIP: In my last review I forgot to mention that I use round cookie cutters to cook the eggs in. Whether I cook them in a skillet or the microwave (scrambled or just cooked whole and breaking the yoke) make sure the skillet (or the microwave safe dinner plate is liberally sprayed with butter-flavored Pam as well as the inside of the cookie cutters. Either way the eggs cook up pretty quickly so be careful that the bottoms don't scorch. When one side is cooked carefully turn the eggs over remove cookie cuters (they should slide off easily) and finish cooking the other side if need be. Perfect sized eggs for an English muffin! I bought my cookie cutters at K- Mart about ten years ago but I'm sure you can still find them there or maybe at WalMart's. Read More

One egg on a sandwich isn't enough for me I had to double. I didn't microwave it either. The egg and toast were hot enough to melt the cheese just fine. Read More

I do this everyday; one or two eggs with spinach and zucchini ham or roast beef ( for that steak and egg taste) I use an old glassbake chili bowl to cook mine in cover your egg or it will explode. when it is done I toss cheese on it recover and let it melt as I am waiting for my coffee. depending on what you cover your eggs with it will puff up Read More

This deserves a big 5 for the ease and speed of making this sandwich! I however like to put mayo on my egg sandwiches and I found this to be a little dry for me. Other than that it was great! Cleanup was even a breeze! Will have to do this one again and again for sure! Read More
