Yup. It’s possible. Needs a little creative thinking, but here are the quick steps:
- 2 eggs into a small bowl
- Add some milk + butter
- Whisk, whisk, whisk
- Microwave for 30 seconds (assuming 800W power)
- Whisk, whisk
- Another 20 seconds in the microwave
- 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.
