  • Microwave Scrambled Eggs – Made in one bowl in less than 2 minutes! A brilliant cooking hack that tastes delicious and requires hardly any clean up.

    My husband and I love eating eggs for breakfast. We have mini egg frittatas or omelettes loaded with veggies and cheese several days a week (sometimes even for dinner!) They are high in protein and low in both fat and calories (unless you add a pound of cheese! Guilty!).

    But my husband is the better egg scrambler/omelette maker, so his always turn out better than mine. And quite frankly, sometimes I just don’t have time to make eggs in the morning. Or I don’t want to deal with clean up.

    My solution? Scrambling eggs in the microwave…in one bowl…in less than two minutes! If you’ve never tried this method, you’ll be amazed at how delicious they taste. It is life changing! The eggs are fluffy, creamy and taste just like scrambled eggs should! You would never know they came straight from the microwave.

    Then, just toss the bowl in the dishwasher. Easiest clean up ever and a super easy, super healthy breakfast!

    What you’ll need:

    The base for these microwave scrambled eggs is so simple. All you need is eggs, shredded cheese, salt, pepper and water.

    If you’d like to add in extras, you can absolutely do so. I added in chopped spinach and red bell peppers. Just make sure to add in the extra ingredients after you whisk together the egg and egg whites.

    Base

    • 3 egg whites
    • 1 egg
    • 1 Tablespoon shredded cheese
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1 Tablespoon water

    How to microwave scrambled eggs

    Step 1: Whisk together eggs 

    Spray a microwave safe bowl generously with cooking spray. Crack both the egg whites and egg into the bowl. Add 1 Tablespoon water. Whisk together for one minute.

    Step 2: Stir in extras 

    Stir in shredded cheese and any extra preferred veggies or meats if desired. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Step 3: Microwave the eggs 

    Place bowl in the microwave and microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir the eggs, then microwave for an additional 45 seconds.

    Step 4: Top and serve! 

    Remove from microwave and add desired toppings. I love to top my microwave eggs with fresh diced tomatoes and ketchup. Other toppings like salsa, green onions or diced avocado taste great too.
