How to Make Scrambled Eggs in the Microwave


How to Microwave an Egg


Whenever I need a quick, healthy snack for my toddlers, I usually turn to this snappy egg recipe. It's so easy, and it doesn't dirty up a pan. That's a win-win in my book. This can be easily doubled. Keep the cooking time the same, but just add time in 20-second increments as needed, stirring in between.

Microwave Scrambled Eggs


Ingredients


1 egg
2 tsp water

Instructions


1. Crack the egg into the bowl.
2. Whisk in the water until well mixed.

3. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. You can cover it if you want. Usually in the last 10 seconds, it will pop. If it doesn't, be careful stirring it up after you take it out!
4. If there is a lot of uncooked egg in the bowl, microwave for 20 more seconds. If it looks completely done or there is only a little bit of liquid egg, remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the egg. Let it sit for a minute or so. Any remaining liquid egg usually cooks a bit more. It will be hot!
5. Serve and eat carefully.

    1. Great idea for cheese! I've used cheddar and pepper jack before in the pan. What kind do you use? Can't beat the speed of this recipe. :)

  3. I used to do this all the time when I was working for a quick lunch... I would add a little salt and then I would toast 2 pieces of bread, add the egg & a piece of cheese (the cheese would melt). It was SO good. I need to do this for a quick breakfast for my kids in the morning!

    1. Great idea to add cheese! I do that when I'm cooking eggs in the pan, but the thought hadn't transferred to the microwave. I love egg sandwiches. Thanks for the comment. It adds to the post!
