    I heard a loud pop.

    First, I'm not a big fan of breakfast - the meal. I prefer to have breakfast at night, but my doctor told me I should eat it first thing in the morning, so I do. But I hate to go to a lot of trouble, so it's usually a bowl of cereal or a boiled egg - I boil several the first part of the week and just take one out of the refrigerator when I want one. I nuke it for 15 sec. to take the chill off, peel it and eat it.

    This morning I was talking to my wife when I put the boiled egg in the microwave and must have hit 150 instead of 15. Still talking to my wife with the microwave running, I heard a loud pop and knew instantly what had happened. My wife gave me "the look", but when I opened the microwave door, she started laughing and said "You get to clean that up."

      My wife also has them for breakfast now and then, but she eats hers straight from the fridge. Sometimes in the car on the way to work and sometimes over the sink with a dash of hot sauce.

        Guilty, as a young Marine in the barracks trying to make an egg salad when hot plates were verboten. Nobody told me eggs do that.

        Funny, and my wife also would have said the same thing.

              Too many tiny pieces to try tastin', and the smell of overcooked egg helped with the decision to not taste...

              I saw a coworker bight into a boiled egg he had microwaved for 20 seconds. It sounded like a gun had gone off. It blew egg up his nose and under his eyelids. We took him to the ER. It actually burned the inside of his nose and his eyes were red for a week. He said it was just warm to the touch. Evidently they can build a lot of pressure around the yoke. The next day we duplicated the accident. We heated an egg for 20 seconds then dropped it outside the break room door. It exploded too.

                I only nuke 'em for 15 sec, then peel, and then cut in half. I also use a push pin to punch a hole in the big in to let the air out so the eggs don't crack while they're boiling.

                Wow. So it didn't blow up when he peeled it, apparently, just when he bit into it. That yoke was a ticking bomb.

                I'm tempted to try this at home, since I'm still in a fireworks sort of mood.

                I should be better at giving all the facts. The egg was peeled before he heated it. One of the other people we worked with had chickens and kept us supplied in boiled eggs. There was a bowl with several in it kept in the break room fridge. I don’t know if them being cold at the start had anything to do with it.

              I have no freaking appetite when I wake up in the morning. But I know I need to eat something and I need to eat something that isn't loaded with carbs.

              So yeah, like you I'm trying to shove eggs down my throat or some type of muffin sandwich with egg cheese and sausage.

              3 hours later when I get to work on my bicycle my metabolism kicks in like the bad out of Hades and then I'm eating non-stop until I get home and go to bed.

                Me too. Can't stand the sight of food in the morning, or at lunch either. But by 4pm I'll eat any food that gets in my way.

              Remember back in the 80s when stores would keep display microwaves PLUGGED IN??? Well I am part of the reason why this stopped.

              Except I would use RAW eggs. Made a much bigger mess

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
