I tried this couple times in my 1000 watt micro. Ended up using 1 tsp milk for 1 egg. Also, I did it on power 70 for 30 secs, stir, then another 30, worked great for 1 egg.
i love it but i did not take the hard pecies out it still tured out great
Amazing and so easy to make
This worked out perfectly! Love love love how easy it was, and being in only one dish, cleanup was a breeze. I’ll start experimenting with other ingredients tomorrow – maybe some ham or mushrooms or …..
I love this recipe, it’s fast and easy and tastes so good!! I had it yesterday and I’m having it today because it’s so good!!
I always love this recipe. Maybe some of you will like this too: put cheese on top. It’ll melt and it’s amazing.
Great suggestion, thank you!
That’s what I did! Glad to see I’m not the only one because it really was delicious.
This was the best recipe I tried just now. Extremely easy. Thanks for this!
Haven’t tried it yet but I will , looks like a great idea for someone who is always on the go and getting out the door with school kids , I can’t wait till morning to try this out
this was way easier than using the stove…loved it thank you1
I’m so glad you liked it Zanele!
We made this for the first time this morning. Made two mugs and followed the recipe. Found that if you make two, you need to increase the time by about 2 minutes. Also, found that it keeps cooking even after removal from the microwave so may want keep that in mind. Overall, was excellent.
You can also oil, pour in some water, add an egg or two and have poached eggs. Some say to prick the yolks in this method. I always forget and I have had no problems.
omg this made such fluffy eggs and is so much easier than using the stove
I have been doing a similar thing for my omelettes for years, and enjoy the easy clean up.
I also cook my eggs for breakfast burritos in the same way, but only use various cheeses as a filler when I do that.
Made it again this morning and used some fresh salsa for the add-ins. Very tasty and super easy.
I’d never tried making an egg this way. Wow! It’s my new favorite. I threw in some half & half, red pepper, asparagus, shallots and cheese. Yum. New go-to meal in a pinch.
Hi Denise, I’m so glad you liked it!
This is one of my favorite breakfasts! In addition to the shredded cheese, I add a spoonful of cottage cheese and omit the milk or water. I also add half a slice of bread (torn into pieces) which gives it a quiche-like effect. Yum!
Oh, I love the idea to add cottage cheese, thank you Deborah!
This is brilliant! I always dread washing that omelet pan and spatula. Cant wait to try it this AM
I use a ziplock plastic container… those square ones. The same process but I change the microwave power to 50% and extend the time, so I don’t have to keep on opening every 30 seconds.
Wax paper works great as a cover vs plastic wrap. Lets it steam while preventing splaters if it explodes. Which can happen once in awhile. I tend to scramble eggs this way without milk or water – so it can pop a bit.
Tried the recipe…ended up having to add another 15 seconds. Turned out nicely. However, doing it in a mini tagine (stone wave microwave cooker) that some friend gave me, turned out about the same, without the stirring, added milk/water or oil coating. Just put it in the microwave (on 600 watts) for a minute and forty seconds and it was done.
