Microwaved Eggs: Gross or Perfect for a Breakfast Tostada?

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Microwaved eggs. If you just cringed at the thought of that, then you’re normal. If you’re like me, then you’d think microwaved eggs would be the perfect challenge to take on for Student Health 101‘s March issue: How to cook a fast but nutritious breakfast…using only a microwave.

Sure, I can name at least five different campus restaurants that specialize in sandwiches (hey, I even worked at one!), but my college-budget wallet and my body can’t handle buying those high-calorie sandwiches every day.
