How To Make Scrambled Eggs In The Microwave

Time poor? Here's your solution - by Allen Pike

For most people, anything more than toast or cereal in the morning is a luxury. If bacon and eggs is on your mind, you’re heading straight to the cafe before work. Fortunately, there is one little trick to sneaking in scrambled eggs for breakfast without breaking the bank.

If you’re office kitchen has a microwave, you’re in luck. All you need to do is bring the eggs and maybe a bowl and cutlery.

Begin by choosing a small microwave-safe bowl and cover the base with a cooking oil or spray to prevent the eggs from sticking at the bottom. 

Just like traditional scrambled eggs, begin by cracking the amount of eggs you want in your meal – eggs typically contain 13 grams of protein, so if you’re trying to bulk up, we recommend at least 2-3.

Previous studies have suggested that going through a carton of eggs a week is perfectly safe. Even two a day is fine.

For a fluffier texture, add a teaspoon of milk or cream. Whisk away with a fork until the ingredients have been blended into a liquid substance with no lumps.

Microwave the bowl for 45 seconds. 

Once complete, lightly whisk again to make sure that any uncooked eggs aren’t sitting at the bottom.

Microwave for another 30 seconds. Check to see if it’s cooked enough – if not microwave another 10 seconds. 

Want to spruce it up? Keep it simple with either bits of bacon, fresh basil or chopped cherry tomatoes.
