How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg … In the Microwave!

Here’s a tip that you can use for Easter and rushed breakfast mornings year round.

Did you know that you can make hard boiled eggs in the microwave? You can! And this microwave hack works equally well for a dozen eggs for dyeing or a single egg for breakfast.

The trick is to poke a small hole in the egg before placing it in the microwave. This will prevent any explosive developments when you microwave the egg. Then, place the egg in a container with enough water to cover it and microwave at 50% power for 3:15 minutes. Remove from the container from the microwave and let the egg sit in the hot water for 5 minutes. When the time’s up, you’ll have the perfect hard boiled egg.
