I am the Egg Man

Hey, with the Atkins diet, eggs are a great friend. Egg Whites are far healthier, and keep the cholesterol and carbs at bay. Every morning, I usually have some sort of eggs, and leave the house with a warm, healthy and carb-free breakfast.

A while ago, I started experimenting with eggs in the microwave. In college, I used to crack an egg into a bowl, microwave for about 2 minutes, and I'd have an egg I could walk with. But that was college; I'm MUCH smarter now. :-)

Noah's Bagels, a popular chain out here, does what they call an Egg Mitt: Eggs and Bagels, served as a sandwich. What fascinated me was how they make it: they have the egg mixture, and put it right in the microwave. Light, fluffy, and delicious. I was hooked (or yolked?).

Now, these folks have taken it to a whole new level:Poached Scrambled eggs. The method they suggest is way too labor intensive for me, but the comments point to the microwave solutions. Looks like I'm on the right track. Check it out; breakfast will never be the same for you.
