Scrambled Eggs in the Microwave


3 people made this

Using the microwave makes clean up easy on busy days. The addition of ham and cheese makes this a kid pleaser. Add spicy sausage and chives for a more grown up version. You can also top with some fresh veggies - tomatoes, capsicum - after cooking to make it a more filling meal.


Serves: 1 

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 1 handful grated cheese of choice
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • cooked ham, chopped

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:18min 

  1. Break 2 eggs into a microwaveable bowl, add salt and pepper and mix with a fork. Add the butter and milk and mix again with the fork. Add the cheese, onion and ham and stir into the egg mixture.
  2. Put bowl into the microwave on full power for 2 minutes, stir place into microwave for a further 2 minutes.
  3. Repeat the stirring and heating for 8 minutes in total - by this time the eggs should be taking their scrambled shape.
  4. Towards the end it may be worth draining some of the excess juices from the bowl, this should make the mixture slightly harder.
  5. Once cooked serve on toast Job done!!

I found the cooking time interesting. In a 1200 watt microwave I cook 4 eggs in around 5 minutes maximum. A tip to keep them firm is to use a spoon to lift the mixture from the outside of the dish - 08 Mar 2013


I used only 30 mls milk and did it in 2:30 minutes with a stir halfway . Its a breakfast favourite for 2 of us . - 04 Feb 2016


Quick and easy. I felt as though this is missing something. Next time I may add some green chiles. - 05 May 2013
