Where most people go wrong is they whisk up the eggs, put them into the microwave, turn the dial and walk away …. then wonder why they ended up with a solid lump of shoe leather instead of soft, fluffy, scrambled eggs. This is an easy way to make microwave scrambled eggs that come out perfect every time.
So, here’s how to do it properly:
- Whisk up your eggs as usual. I use a small Pyrex jug for a lot of my microwave cooking, or mugs. A jug is perfect to make scrambled eggs in the microwave – or a mug, it really depends on the quantity being cooked.. I find round dishes work best – jugs and mugs have a handy handle.
- Place the jug/mug in the microwave oven and set for 1-2 minutes in the first instance. Don’t walk away, watch what they’re doing. As the eggs form and rise in your dish, take them out and give them a stir.
- To stir them effectively run a fork round the inside of the sides, then use the edge of the fork to chop up any formed lumps of cooked egg, then turn the mixture over.
- Return the egg to the microwave and microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring/chopping/turning each time.
- Once they’re cooked to the consistency you like, get a knob of butter/margarine on a fork and run that round the edge of the egg, then chop/fold the scrambled egg as you’re mixing the butter in.
You should find that none of the egg has stuck to the dish and you can simply rinse it out and put it in soak until later!
