Perfect Microwaved Scrambled Eggs and Cheese for One.

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 2 mins

Scrambling eggs in the microwave is a one dish affair. No muss, no fuss. These come out perfectly and taste delicious. Found this in an issue of Everyday Food. Microwave cooking times vary and mine actually needs 55 seconds at each step instead of the 45 seconds listed. Don't add extra salt until you've tasted it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large (10oz) microwave-safe custard cup or ramekin, combine eggs, milk, cayenne pepper, and salt. Stir in scallion.
  2. Microwave (uncovered) on high for 45 seconds; stir with a fork. Continue cooking until eggs are almost set, about 45 seconds more. Remove from microwave.
  3. With a clean fork, stir in cheese; cover with a paper towel. Let stand until cheese has melted and eggs are set, about 1 minute. Top with tomato and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Not only were these easy and oh so quick (scrambled eggs in less than 2 minutes!), but they were tasty scrambled eggs. The scallions and tomatoes really added a lot of flavor. Thanks for posting your recipe, Redbelly. Made for the Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef event.
