How to cook a steamed egg using a microwave and ingredients from the Dining Hall 

As a boarding school student, one of the difficulties you might face is starvation at night. Surely, you can have some ramen or mac ‘n cheese. However, eating them for the whole year may make you bored and broke. Keep your money for shopping! Try borrowing things from the dining hall to cook a “steamed egg” with the microwave in the dorm.  


  • 3 Eggs (Sometimes there are raw eggs in stir-fry zone. Alternatively, you can buy them from IGA)
  • Water 
  • Microwavable bowl 
  • Chopsticks/ Spoon/ Fork (anything that can be used to stir eggs) 

How to:

  1. Crack eggs into the bowl. 
  2. Add water in approximately the same amount as the eggs.
  3. Use your chosen utensil to stir until water and eggs combine.
  4. COVER THE BOWL. Microwave it for around 7-8 minutes until the egg is cooked. (time may vary so keep an eye to see when the egg looks cooked)
  5. Finish!!! Enjoy eating!!! 


  • Try adding cheese (can be from the sandwich or salad bar). Add on the top of the steamed egg and microwave for 30 seconds. 
  • Additionally, you can add toppings such as bacon, sausage, and ham ( from the sandwich bar, stir fry, or salad bar, depending on what you desire). Add after mixing the eggs and water. 
  • Adding a little milk, soy sauce, or other sauce of your choice will make it tastier.
