Oh!  You really are not having any luck with these eggs!  At least it was not super stinky and painful to clean up this time 🙂

@canthugallcats: re heat them in a bowl of water- they won’t explode!

I’mn sorry…I shouldn’t be laughing, but your post made me laugh out loud! I think you need to cook your eggs on the stovetop (boiling for 12 minutes usually works for me) and then put it in the freezer when you’re done to cool it off faster.

Good luck…though I agree with mishelleez – you and eggs might need a break!

I second the stovetop suggestion. You can’t cook eggs that are still in the shell in the microwave!

OMG! I’m sorry that I’m laughing right now, but I remember reading your other post!! When are you going to be done with the eggs so you don’t have to worry about it anymore??

Why don’t you put the egg in a bowl of water and heat them for 5 minutes in the microwave?

PLEASE TEACH ME THE EGG + MICROWAVE, I haven’t a clue what you’re talking about and I love to cook – – Clearly I don’t make eggs often enough to know this short cut?

Eggs have made my list for this reason.  I underboiled one, and figured that being organic, an egg should have some pores for any steam to escape through.  

So I put it in th emicrowave for perhaps 30 seconds.  I take it out, put my face right next to it to see if it looks properly done, and


Jerk-egg exploded in my face and I screamed.  It’s usually really hard to startle me, too.
