Microwaved Eggs Do Explode

Last modified on October 17th, 2006

I was in a bit of a hurry this morning, so I thought I would save some time by using my microwave for a change. I cooked a few eggs up last night (hardboiled) so that I’d have a little snack in the fridge when I got hungry. But, unfortunately, cold hard boiled eggs just don’t really do it for me. I figured — why not just warm those puppies back up in the microwave before I eat them? Sounds like a good idea. So, I deshelled them and stuck two eggs in the microwave.

They weren’t even in there that long really, just like 45 seconds. The first waited until I had opened the door to take him out, and then he exploded in a raining shower of egg pieces. It scared the shit out of me at first, and then I thought it was kind of funny. I was like “oh well, I’ll just eat the other one.” He was a little trickier that guy. He didn’t explode at first – oh no, that would be too simple for his liking – instead, he waited until I picked him up, and then KABOOOM, steamy egg all over my shirt and counter.

So, I had a piece of toast for breakfast.

Apparently I’m not the only person to do this on the planet.

    I think there should be a club or a support group for people who have survived an exploding egg incident. If you ever feel alone in the world you can read my egg bomb story at http://ajillstory.blogspot.com/2006/03/brave-and-crazy.html

    On the plus side, exploding eggs make for really funny stories that friends seem to love.
