The incredible egg...

This may be a dumb question about cooking/reheating eggs.

I love eggs and would like to eat them in the morning, but don't always have time to get them ready. Is it possible to prepare them the night before, refrigerate them and then warm them up in the microwave in the morning? I don't like to cook them in the morning, but would be able to deal with them being reheated that way. I like them cooked over-hard, so the yolk would be broken and completely cooked at that time.

I know that I could just get up 15 minutes earlier, but sometimes that's easier said than done. Thanks for any suggestions.

OP here - I know that they make those frozen egg sandwiches, but I don't like all the other things that they add to them. I am trying to devise a way to make them at home and control some of the calories/fat but still be somewhat more convenient.

Oh yeah, you can cook them and refrigerate them. No problem. Just heat them up and eat! I like them with salsa too when they have been reheated.

The South Beach Diet has a recipe for making egg muffin thingys that you can bake, then reheat in the microwave in the morning. I had more luck using a loaf or silicone brownie pan instead of cupcake tin....

I poach enough eggs for several days and then microwave them on med for 1 minute - if you reheat them at too high of a temp they get 'rubbery'. This method works great and the egg tastes like you just cooked it.

i eat a breakfast sandwhich every morning and love it - I stay full and satisfied all morning and my energy levels stay even and strong.

1 Orowheat Whole Wheat English Muffin (130 cal, 4g fiber)
1 poached egg (70 cal)
1 slice FF American cheese (30 cal)
1 slice candian bacon (20 cal)
(Trader Joe's candian bacon is superb!)

total: 250 cal

You can just crack an egg into a microwaveable bowl, cover it w/ saran wrap (important, b/c the egg will "pop" and get all over the microwave if you skip this step), and cook it on high for a minute or two, and it'll be cooked, w/ a hard yolk. Maybe you'd like that. I make that sometimes, and put it on an english muffin w/ a slice of turkey bacon. Yum!
