When it comes to making a delicious breakfast for my family, fluffy eggs such as our Fluffy Scrambled Eggs, are a typical go-to. We also really love our Better Than Starbucks Egg Bites. This Eggs Benedict Casserole or Ham Egg and Cheese Bake are always a good option too.

But on busy weekday mornings when I don’t have much cooking time, I turn to making microwaved eggs which are basically a shortcut recipe to cooking eggs.

The best part is, there is no need to clean up a dirty pan, no need to heat up a stovetop, and it results in fewer dishes being used.

So, give this cooking process a try and see how easy breakfast can be made with this microwave eggs recipe.

Helpful Tips:

  • It is helpful to know your microwave power level/microwave wattage and how to adjust it. A higher wattage/high power microwave can help cook the eggs faster than a lower wattage.
  • Cook your eggs in 30-second intervals to avoid overcooking.
  • You can certainly add additional toppings to your scrambled eggs to give them extra flavor. Microwave bacon, black pepper, red pepper flakes, cheddar cheese (or any other shredded cheese), chopped vegetables, hot sauce, fresh herbs, etc. Just keep in mind some things like bell peppers and onions may need to be precooked ahead of adding them to the scrambled egg mixture.
  • You can use these eggs to make quick, homemade breakfast burritos.

  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • teaspoon Salt


  • In a deep bowl suitable for heating in a microwave oven, beat in three eggs, pour in milk and add salt. You can also add any spices you like.
  • Thoroughly mix everything with a fork or whisk until completely combined.
  • Put the bowl in the microwave and cook on medium power 800-1000. After 30 seconds, remove the bowl from the microwave and mix the eggs with a fork. They will partially begin to seize from above.
  • Place the bowl in the microwave for another 30 seconds. The scrambled eggs will be almost ready at this point, stir it again. Since the eggs are still slightly damp, you can continue to cook until the desired consistency is reached.
  • After 15 seconds, the scramble becomes less moist and can be served. However, if dry scramble is your goal, continue cooking it in 15-second increments until you get the texture you want. One or two increments of 15 seconds will be enough.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
