Microwave Scrambled Eggs

Microwave Scrambled Eggs

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon butter - softened
  • 1 slice American cheese
Recipe test success! People who eat eggs every day might notice that the eggs are bit less tender than pan-scrambled eggs. But those who have eggs just once or twice a week may very well not notice a difference. I've adjusted the recipe ever so slightly from when it was first contributed by reducing the amount of butter that's needed. I'd also recommend adding a pinch of salt to the eggs when you beat them. I opted to use a Colby Pepper Jack cheese for my test scramble - which seems to indicate that almost any thinly sliced cheese should work fine. From start to finish, this breakfast took me 2 and 1/2 minutes and cleanup was very easy. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to eggs and I'll always prefer to use a pan. But it's great to know that a satisfying egg breakfast can be prepared in the time it takes to watch two television commercials. (This recipe was submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in February 2015.)

I just made this due to not having anything to take for breakfast! Added milk and butter salt and pepper and cheese. Wrapped in in a tortilla and can't tell it wasn't from a pan!

Need to add milk - that is a no-brainer.

I do love scrambled eggs and cheese, but personally I think this is just a little putting off! I normally use a little milk, salt & pepper, then add some cheese near to the end. Honestly it really works better. :)

I didn't mind it - good idea in a sandwich :P Maybe "mikayla" found the simple recipe a bit too frustrated and messed up?

This was the worse "thing" as my kids called it we ever had! Do not try this.

I like to add just a tablespoon of milk and a little salt and pepper to it. It actually works really well.
