Ingredients for Microwave Eggs

EGGS Use two eggs for this recipe or the equivalent in liquid egg products. If you add extra eggs, you will need to add extra cooking time.

MILK Adding a splash of milk to the eggs makes them a little fluffier and ensures they don’t overcook in the microwave.

Need to make this without dairy? Substitute with a milk alternative like soy or almond milk or even water.

Add-Ins

    • Toss in a little cheese or sprinkle on top after it has cooked. A little butter in the eggs makes them creamier and softer.
    • Cooked meats like bacon, ham, and breakfast sausage can be added! Use up any leftovers you have, or toss in some chopped-up deli meat!
    • Precook veggies as they can have water in them. Try Mushrooms, spinach, bell peppers, onions, diced zucchini, the possibilities are endless!

How to Make Great Microwave Scrambled Eggs

  1. Wisk eggs, milk, salt & pepper in a microwavable bowl until it is a creamy yellow color. There should be no visible bits of white or yolk.

  3. Let rest & enjoy!

Cooking Tip

Eggs should be moist and glossy before removing from the microwave. They will continue to cook once removed.

Tips

This recipe is simple, but there are a few tricks that will make this recipe a success:

  • Cover the eggs while cooking and then remove the covering partway through.
  • Some microwaves cook differently. This recipe is for a 1000-watt microwave cooking at 70% power, everyone’s microwave will be a little different.
  • Check the eggs and don’t overcook them! They will look slightly undercooked when they are removed from the microwave but they will continue to cook once they are removed from the microwave.
