  • Cooking Tip

    To make a soft-cooked egg in the microwave, place an egg in a microwave-safe bowl filled with hot water. Cover with microwavable safe lid. Microwave on High for 4 minutes. Peel and serve.

    For a hard-cooked egg, leave egg covered in hot water for 2 minutes before peeling.

    Feel free to swap in mild hummus without spicy flavor if desired.
