Unless we live in a townhouse, many of us don’t have a full working kitchen, or even a stove. But one thing that we do have is microwaves!
Whether you have one across the hall, or in your room, you can’t imagine the amount of recipes you can do. This is the first of many segments to help alleviate the bridge between microwave and student. In a matter of minutes, you’ll have a meal to tempt the palette for both you and your roommate(s).
Today, Chef Tamara (Kim’s roommate) will make a quick and easy breakfast after an intense Friday night: bacon and eggs. This is what we’ll need:
- Paper Towel
- Salt & pepper (optional)
- Ketchup (optional)
- Garlic (optional)
How to make the bacon and eggs:
1) Take a microwavable plate and place a paper towel on it. Place 4 slices of bacon on top of the paper towel.
2) Place in microwave for 2.5 minutes.
3) Flip bacon (careful it’s hot!) and fold a paper towel on top of the bacon.
4) Place the bacon back in for 30 seconds.
5) Take it out and dab it off and let it sit for 30 seconds to 1 minute. If bacon is too raw for you place back in for 20 seconds: dab it off again and let it sit.
6) Take a relative flat surface dish with small sides and crack 2 eggs into the dish.
7) Pierce the yellow yolk with a needle or a fork making a small whole.
8) Optional: Sprinkle garlic, salt or pepper on your egg before cooking for seasoning.
a) Over easy: Place eggs in microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds
b) Hard egg: 2 minutes and 30 seconds
As a critic of this meal, I can honestly say the bacon was well done. It was crunchy and tasteful, but also greasy, so make sure you pat it down or dab it to get some of the grease off. As for the eggs, the yolk was fully cooked. The best thing about this recipe is that most, if not all the ingredients can be found in the C-store or in SSU! Talk about a money saver! So, enjoy your meal and be safe!
