Microwaving scrambled eggs is so easy and fast, making it the perfect breakfast. Taking the mug in and out of the microwave to scramble the eggs rather than scrambling them right in front of you on the stove is the only downside, if you really had to find one. However, being able to cook your eggs perfectly in a mug and walk right out of the door in the morning makes up for that!

Microwave Scrambled Eggs Flavor Variations and Mix-ins! 

  • Add a spoonful of grated cheese while scrambling! Top with crumbled, cooked bacon. 
  • I love substituting creme fraiche (French cream) for the liquid! Creme friche is thick, creamy, and has just the slightest tang. Add a spoonful in place of the milk. 
  • Add a tablespoon of chopped ham or turkey while scrambling the eggs. Even cooked breakfast sausage would be fabulous! 
  • Leftover cooked vegetables from the night before would be an awesome mix-in! Just chop them up into smaller bite sized pieces.

FAQs 

Can I microwave more than two eggs? 

Yes! Just use a microwave safe bowl Cook for 45 seconds, give it a good stir, then microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each time, until the eggs are set. 

What should I use to cook my scrambled eggs in? 

You can use a ramekin, small microwave safe bowl, or a coffee mug. 

How can I prevent my eggs from exploding in the microwave? 

This definitely happens, but it typically only happens when you are using a whole egg. Since we are scrambling the eggs first with a little liquid, you should be just fine.
