"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."

"Great fast way to make scrambled eggs. I'll make these often. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper. Made for Spring PAC 2014."
"Great recipe for when you are pressed for time. I skipped the tomatoes, though. Will be maiking this often. Made for Spring 2014 PAC."
"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."
"I did mine in a microwave jug, though had 1 n:oops: moment and added the cheese to the egg mix and then microwaved for 3 x 45 second for a very filling breakfast, thank youRedbelly, made for Name That Ingredient tag game."
"Yum Yum, just what I needed coming home in the evening a very quick fix perfect. Also great at breakfast time. I used 2 eggs and cheddar cheese. Thank you for posting. Made for Honor thy mother the diabetic forum. May 2011"
"This recipe has been a life saver! Mornings are SO busy in our home & we are a family who likes to have eggs for breakfast. Making them the way we like them is very time consuming, so this is perfect, & a very healthy quick way for breakfast! I use a coffee mug & spray it with Pam. I use 1 egg white & 1 whole egg. It is also great since we can each add anything we want depending on our tastes that day! I can have spinach, red pepper, & a bit of feta & eat it on toast. My DH can add in precooked bacon, spinach, & cheese throw it in a wrap on the way to work. DS can just have cheese & salsa & eat it out of the mug! Everyone can make their own bfast mugs & we are out the door quickly & everyone is happy! SUPER! Thank you for the recipe! We make it every morning now!"
"Thank you for posting this recipe! Worked fine, quickly and will be used often in the future."
"I've made this frequently...I tried fresh rosemary & feta as suggested, as well as tomatoes, asiago & green peppers, as in the picture. I think I'll try salsa and cheddar with some avocado...or finely chopped spinach and mushrooms. This is great for quick experiments!! Thanks!"
"this is the first time i have made scrambled eggs in the microwave and it worked really well, however i had to start over because i have a 900w microwave and didn't estimate the times correctly but the second time it turned out really nicely, and i didn't use the cherry tomato, thanks for posting"
"I'm not a great fan of scrambled eggs, but did want a change from my usual breakfast. The onions and cheese make the eggs more palatable. Thanks for sharing."
"Quick, easy, and tasty... just what I want in a breakfast! I didn't have any tomatoes, but I wish I did, I'm sure that tastes great, too. Thanks for sharing this easy breakfast!"
"Great directions for a quick, colorful and yummy breakfast. Didn't feel it needed additional salt and pepper. Highly suggest the Omega-3 eggs for a health boost at breakfast. Microwaves vary, so this is a recipe that may require experimentation. I'll definitely try the other reviewer's suggestion of feta and rosemary. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Thanks for these great directions for preparing scrambled eggs in the microwave. I am trying to eat more protein for breakfast and this makes it really quick and easy. I will make this often."
"When my stovetop and oven went on the fritz, I tried this microwaved version for my vegetarian family. What a great alternative! Following the suggestions of another reviewer, I opted to substitute feta for the cheddar and to add the rosemary. Really very gourmet! Thanks so much to you both for helping me out in a pinch! "
"I was looking for a lower fat way to cook scrambled eggs without so much fat. These totally hit the mark. I've also tried it with other herb/cheese combos. Rosemary and feta is especially good."
"I have been cooking scrambled eggs in the microwave for years, but this recipe tastes even better than the one I had been using. GREAT flavor and creamy, just as written, but this recipe wopuld also be great to experiment with. You could add any mumber of other ingrediants, such as crumpled bacon or sausage, green chiles, Pepper Jack cheese, a dash of hot sauce, green salsa, potatoe dices, etc. I agree with Chef Redbelly and another reviewer that you may have to experiment with the cookig times - my microwave also required longer cooking times (if required, cook additionally in small incriments of time, as eggs are easy to overcook in the microwave). I plan to use this recipe as my new staple!"
"Thanks for posting such a simple recipe. Perfect "breakfast for one" recipe. Made it this morning and only added milk, salt, black pepper and cheddar. This is how I shall prepare from now on! I agree with not salting until tasted. P.S. I had to cook longer due to the difference in our microwaves."
