Cooking meringues in the microwave:

Step 1: Separate and beat the squirrels.

First, rinse the chicken eggs well under running water and drain them with a kitchen towel. Then break them into a separate deep bowl, while separating the yolk from the protein. Put the yolks to one side, you can use them to prepare another dish, and add the table salt to the proteins on the tip of a table knife and 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar. Mix everything thoroughly with a tablespoon, and then whisk with a mixer into thick foam. The protein mass should increase, at least 2 times.

Step 2: Add the remaining ingredients and beat the protein mixture.

Then add citric acid and half of the remaining granulated sugar to the protein mixture on the tip of the table knife, beat the mixture again with a mixer at high speed. Then, while continuing to beat, gradually add the remaining sugar to the mixture. Beat the mixture until it has a uniform consistency and the sugar is completely dissolved in the mixture.

Step 3: Cook the meringues in the microwave.

Now cover the grid for the microwave with foil, grease it with a small amount of butter. You can move the finished protein mass into a special pastry bag and squeeze small meringues from it onto the prepared foil. In this case, they will turn out incredibly textured and aesthetic in appearance. If there is no pastry bag at hand, then you can also reproduce the action with a teaspoon. Leave a small distance between the meringues, approximately in 1-1.5 centimetersso that it does not stick together during cooking. Turn on the microwave oven in convection mode, heat it up to 130 degreesc, then place the baking tray with meringue inside and bake in this mode about half an hour.

Step 4: Serve the meringues in the microwave.

Remove the prepared meringues from the oven, cool slightly, then transfer to a serving dish and serve for tea as a separate independent dessert. In addition, you can use such meringues if you wish to form other culinary products. For example, during the preparation or decoration of various cakes. You can also prepare hot chocolate cream, add previously peeled and crushed nuts (any, at your discretion) to it, then grease the lower part of the meringue with this cream and combine two pieces together. As a result, you will get delicious and very beautiful cakes - meringues with chocolate. Good appetite!

- - If desired, the confectionery bag can be replaced with an ordinary dense plastic bag. To do this, place the prepared protein mass in it, tie it tightly, and cut one of the corners with scissors. Squeeze the mixture a little on the prepared sheet of foil.

- - If your microwave oven does not have a pre-heating function, put the meringue grid in the microwave and activate the “convection” mode.

- - Also, if desired, you can cook a multi-colored meringue, which is especially popular with children. To do this, it is necessary to use powdered food (!) Dye. Divide the mixture into several parts (depending on the number of desired colors) and mix each with the dye in proportions according to the instructions on the paint packaging.
