Cooking eggs on busy mornings shouldn't be stressful. Instead of hauling out your frying pan and monitoring your eggs while they cook, just pop them in the microwave! You can make just about any kind of eggs you'd normally eat, including poached, scrambled, and omelets. While a poached or scrambled egg prepared in the microwave may have a slightly different texture than one cooked by the traditional stove-top method, the speed and simplicity of microwave cooking makes this a likable option—especially for kids in the kitchen, busy mornings, office lunches, or no-hassle dinners.

You can even mix up your omelet the night before so it's ready to grab, microwave, and go on a busy morning. Just follow these instructions:
