How To Make bonnie's perfect 40 second mini omelet

  • Small monkey dishes
    You will need two stoneware monkey dishes to make an egg cooker.
  • 2
    Start with butter.
  • Buttered dish
    Butter the inside of one monkey dish with the back of a teaspoon.
  • Crack an egg
    Crack an egg inside the dish and beat it with the spoon.
  • Add the cheese.
    Stir in the Tillamook cheese.
  • Invert one dish over the other
    Invert the lid over the dish, and you now have your own mini pressure cooker!.
  • Listen for the rattle!
    Microwave on one minute. It will only take a few seconds to build the steam. This is important! Listen for the rattle and then immediately stop the microwave. Your egg is done. It will be soft and tender. Perfect! Further cooking after you hear the rattle will result in a tough egg. Note: Always set the microwave time for 1 minute because the time can vary within a few seconds; and the egg will get done when it rattles. It takes 40 seconds for the egg to rattle in my microwave. It may vary a couple seconds either way in yours.
  • Dishes are hot!
    The dishes are hot. Remove with care.
  • Enjoy!
    Now your mini omelet is ready to eat. Eat it as is, or you can make a sandwich and add bacon, ham or hash browns to it.
