  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 Cups water


  • Place Eggs in microwave safe bowl, add the salt. No need to stir around.
  • Microwave on high for 9 mins

  3. You’ll need heat resistant gloves when getting the bowl out of the microwave because it will be hot.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to get the eggs out of the hot water into the ice bath.
