How I Cook Eggs in My Microwave

Filed under: Cooking — Carol @ 11:42 am

Since a few people have asked about this, I figured I’d share. I first learned about the basics of doing this in a recipe I found for a Mexican Egg Scramble in one of the the Hungry Girl cookbooks (see below), and have made a few variations over the past year or so. Below are the basics:

  • 2 teaspoons “healthy oil” (Canola, olive, safflower, flaxseed, sunflower)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute/egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning of choice (taco seasoning, italian seasoning, etc.)
  • 1 slice fat-free cheese or soy cheese
  • Optional: 1/4 cup Morningstar Farms sausage “crumbles” or other “filling” (beans, peppers, tomato, etc.)

Mix oil, water, eggs and seasoning in a microwave-safe mug or Pyrex measuring cup.

Nuke on high/minute plus for one minute, then stir.
(Add sausage crumbles or filling at this point if you want.)

Nuke on high/minute plus for another 30 seconds and stir again. Make sure to keep an eye on the eggs, or they’ll expand the same way the marshmallow PEEPS do!

Place in microwave-safe bowl and top with cheese if desired. Nuke for about another 30 seconds.
