Quick Microwave Scrambled Eggs

Microwave scrambled eggs are the perfect way to switch up your go-to easy breakfast. This month, the August Recipe Redux challenge was to “rise and shine with a savory breakfast”. No better way to rise and shine than with the easiest eggs. 

While scrambled eggs are nothing short of totally and completely normal, so unexciting, these are far easier than normal and are just so good.

I actually rarely eat savory breakfasts. Occasionally, I’ll make a nice omelete

  • or my absolute favorite Spanish tortilla de patata that I learned while living in Spain 7 years ago. My heart is breaking for this incredible country right now (and for one of my most favorite cities-Barcelona)

I’m all about breakfast I can make the night before. Hence my obsession with overnight oats. But I’ve found a way to make eggs work for my mornings aka: a grab & go breakfast that’s savory and high in protein & veggies. Yes, an easy way to get some extra color and fun flavors into your breakfast. Enter microwave scrambled eggs.

These are great because you can literally whip a few ingredients together & heat them up, walk away & they’re ready to go, OR you can whip all the ingredients up and store them in the fridge overnight then cook at home or at work.

PS they didn’t make my kitchen stink afterward, so all is good on the nice coworker front. Unless my kitchen already stunk & I’ve gone nose blind to this (totally possible).

Recipe Notes

Also, I made my first video for this recipe. Funny how losing my camera gave me more time and the desire to step outside my comfort zone. Hopefully I’ll be a jack-of-more-trades once I get my camera back. Here’s how you make it:

    • thanks Maria! I can’t believe how easy they are! and thanks, just go for it, then learn from the first go. I was planning on the fall too, but broke my camera & wanted to do something different.

  1. I’m definitely a sweet breakfast person myself but this looks so good and easy. Could even eat it for a snack! I definitely want to try that skillet too 🙂

  2. This is so convenient! I’ve never tried microwaving eggs before, but I should! I have about 3 dozen to use right now!
