    Different Egg Microwaving Techniques
    Fried Eggs
    Break and slip one egg into each of two lightly greased 10-ounce custard cups or a pie plate. Gently prick yolks with tip of knife or wooden pick. Cover with plastic wrap. Cook on 50% power for about two to three minutes. Let stand, covered until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard.

    Hard-Cooked Eggs
    Separate yolks and whites of eggs into two lightly greased liquid measures or small bowls. Stir yolks with fork. Cover each container with plastic wrap. Cook separately on 50% or 30% power, stirring once or twice, allowing about 20 to 30 seconds per yolk, about 30 seconds to one minute per white. Remove when slightly underdone. Let stand, covered, for about two minutes. Cool long enough to handle comfortably, then chop or chill until ready to chop.

    Poached Eggs
    Pour 1/3 cup water into 10-ounce custard cup or small deep bowl. Break and slip in two eggs. Gently prick yolks with tip of knife or wooden pick. Cover with plastic wrap. Cook on full power for one to two minutes. If necessary, let stand, covered, until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, for about one to two minutes. Pour off water to serve in custard cup or lift out with slotted spoon. NOTE: For four eggs, use 2/3-cup water in one-quart bowl or baking dish. Cook for two to three minutes and let stand as above.

    Do NOT cook eggs in their shells.

    Steam builds up inside the shell and the egg may explode under the pressure.

    Shelled hard-boiled eggs should be sliced or cut up before reheating in the microwave oven. Mix yolks and whites together for scrambled eggs and omelets, to help them cook evenly. The vinegar or hot water used to potato eggs coagulates and sets the whites. Yolks will cook faster than whites in microwaves unless mixed.

    Microwave Bacon
    Preparation Time: 30 minutes

    Microwave Cooking Time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 4-6 bacon slices

    Ingredients:
    1lb Bacon slices
    Microwave dish
    Paper towels
    Paper plate

    If the packaged sliced bacon is cold from the refrigerator, slowly slide the dull edge of a butter knife along the length between the strips to separate slices. Take the bacon out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking and the slices should separate easier.

    Place a microwave-safe paper towel in a microwavable dish large enough to fit a single layer of bacon slices (four to six slices). Cover with another paper towel. Cook for about four to five minutes on high, depending on the wattage of your microwave and the thickness of the bacon. Start checking after the first two minutes, and continue cooking at one-minute intervals. Consult your microwave manual for specific times.

    To cook 1 lb. of bacon, place a paper towel on a paper plate and lay three slices of bacon on top. Cover with a second paper towel. Lay the other three slices on top, cover with another paper towel, and continue layering the remaining bacon three slices at a time. Putting more slices in a layer will cause excess grease to leek out onto the bottom of the oven. Cook for 15 minutes at 100% power until cooked. Remember food continues to cook after it has been taken out of the microwave, so allow standing time.

    Pickled Orange Slices
    Preparation Time: 10 minutes

    Microwave Cooking Time: 16 minutes

    Serves: 4 people

    Ingredients:
    3-4 oranges
    340g/12oz/1 1/2 cups sugar
    280m1 1/2 pint/1 cup water
    280m1 1/2 pint/1 cup white wine vinegar
    1 stick cinnamon
    2 whole allspice berries
    4 whole cloves

    Slice the oranges into 5mm 1/4 inch rounds, discard the ends and remove any seeds. Put the sugar, water, vinegar and whole spices into a bowl or into 250g/llb/2 cup sterilized jars. Cook, uncovered, for 6 minutes on HIGH. Put in the orange slices and cover with cling film/plastic wrap. Cook for 10 minutes on MEDIUM, or until the orange rind looks clearer. Remove the cling film/plastic wrap, seal and cover while still warm. Keep in the refrigerator.

    Popcorn
    You can usually buy a box of micrwavable popcorn from almost any grocery store, usually in various flavours: natural, plain, toffee, butter, extra butter, etc.

    Remove one bag of popcorn from the box and unfold the bag so that the inner side of the fold faces upward. This is usually where the instructions are pre-printed.

    Use judgment when choosing the appropriate cooking time, and do not leave the popcorn unattended whilst cooking! Remove the bag of popcorn from the oven. The bag should now have doubled in size due to the popcorn kernels expanding. Whilst opening the bag of popcorn, keep your face away from the opening and let the steam escape from the bag.

    If you have not heated the popcorn for long enough, you will find ‘unpopped’ kernels in the bag. Unfortunately, these cannot be reheated.
