Get an egg cooker. Loads of hard-boiled eggs, fast. (The 'done' alarm on these things is hella annoying though (for a reason - so you turn it off!), so be respectful of your roommates/dormmates.)
And then you have hard boiled eggs. Add some cheese sticks, maybe some almonds or some meat sticks, and you have a portable meal.

... I was pretty underwhelmed, but it makes boiling easier. ��♂️
A former roommate got me on pesto with hard-boiled eggs. Trader Joe's Genova Pesto is my fave, 1g net carb per 1/4 cup. Dukkah spice is also great. If you have an issue with dry yolks, might I also recommend this awesome egg cooker? (There are lots of similar products at similar price points, fyi.) As long as I remember not to put eggs in straight from the fridge, I can get a perfectly cooked medium-boiled egg with a nice creamy yolk without any fuss.
I recommend investing in an egg cooker. Makes cooking them to desired doneness very easy and they tend to peel easier as well. Also, when peeling them put them under cold water and peel there. All shells will float and they come off way easier.

That egg cooker ....
$19.99 which is £14.93
On UK Amazon the same fucking egg cooker is £66.21, which is $88.67! The fuck.
When I was a child in the seventies (here in the U.S.), my mom had an electric egg steamer. Inside the cover in the center was a small post with a pin embedded in the end that you used to pierce the shells before cooking. You could also poach eggs in the appliance, using an additional tray. I had forgotten completely about that thing until I saw your post. Haven't seen anything like it in years.
Update: Nevermind. Here's a modern version.
Fastest breakfast I have is I take 2 eggs and put them in an egg cooker then set it, forget it and 5 minutes later I grab and go. Of course I get a towel or container to take them with me.
I use this :)
I have this one in green.
That's not a bad price, but I picked mine up locally for $6 at my grocery store!
Edit: I actually picked up three! Hehe. One for my job, my husband's, and one for home.
Put the eggs in a pot
Fill pot with water high enough that eggs are fully covered with water
Put pot on burner without a cover
Water will start to boil
Leave at boiling for 10 minutes
After 10 minutes in a boil put eggs into a bowl and dump ice on them
Let eggs sit in ice for 10 minutes (to stop them from cooking)

If you like hard boiled eggs a lot, this is one of the best things you can buy under $20. I get perfect hard boiled eggs every time with 0 effort. It also has trays for poaching and omelets, they don't make anything amazing but they will make decent eggs with a bonus that it was steamed and not fried.
Every once in a while I'll say something nice. I bought one of these about a year ago and it's been a lifesaver.
Breakfast: 2 hard-boiled eggs (protein), 10 baby carrots (filler, necessary sugars, vitamins)

Get an egg cooker like this for perfectly peeled hardboiled eggs.
I am talking about an egg cooker like one of these.
You can see on this measuring cup that it needs more water to boil one egg "medium" than it needs for two.

Do you not have a cooktop, or you’re just looking for simplicity? Eggs in the microwave don’t sound very good, to be honest. I have one of these egg cookers and I use it constantly. Super simple soft or hard boiled eggs, it also does poached eggs and omelettes but I’ve never tried either.
I got this for Christmas, and it works GREAT!

I've had one for a couple years and it's so effortless to make hard boiled eggs. And it makes weird but totally fine little omelettes for when you're lazy but still want brunch. - Samantha
