Scrambled eggs in the office microwave..

Yup. It’s possible. Needs a little creative thinking, but here are the quick steps:

  1. 2 eggs into a small bowl
  2. Add some milk + butter
  3. Whisk, whisk, whisk
  4. Microwave for 30 seconds (assuming 800W power)
  5. Whisk, whisk
  6. Another 20 seconds in the microwave
  7. Whisk
  8. Now its just 5-10 seconds of microwaving and whisking. Stop when it hits your preferred runny state.

IMPORTANT:  It’s a bit like a cliff. The eggs will be runny up till a point, and then immediately become solid in the microwave. So the last step requires very careful watching and whisking.
