How to make scrambled eggs in the microwave

They said it couldn't be done. Ha! This is the quickest, easiest and cleanest way to make scrambled eggs for one.


To serve

  • 1–2 slices of bread, toasted
  • salted butter, for spreading


  1. Crack the eggs into a microwavable bowl and season. Whisk well with a fork until completely combined and there are some bubbles on the surface. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir with a fork. If necessary, microwave again in 10-second bursts, until almost set. Remember, it will continue cooking a little when removed from the microwave. Stir again and set aside for 30 seconds.

  2. Butter your toast and tip the egg on top. Serve.

Recipe Tips

Add a dash of milk or cream to the eggs before microwaving if you prefer silky eggs.

Microwaves vary; the eggs may be almost set after 30 seconds or they may take a minute.
