    I made scrambled egg for breaky this morning and I do my scrambles eggs in the microwave for four minutes. They went a grey colour?! Does anyone know what this is? Were they in for too long? I ate them and I'm worried now :( xxx

    I think they're just slightly overcooked. I get this sometimes when I boil eggs and they come out really grey, but they taste fine! Xx

    Grey is overcooked or too much butter added. Both will do it. Iv never made them in microwave?!

    I don't like eggs made in a pan - too wet. Doing them in micro (not till grey obviously) keeps them drier.


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(

    I do them in the microwave just because they stick to saucepans like cement and I'm to lazy to scrub pans unnecessarily lol. They taste lovely in the microwave too x
