Okay, this was just for fun because I love to hear the sound effects on it.  Ah, yes. I wish I could make a ring tone out of it.

Ahhh eggs, my dear old friend

Who doesn't like eggs? It tastes great, it has protein, you can buy it in a number of ways, or you can walk over to your hen house and swipe a few for breakfast. You can buy cage-free, brown, natural and organic. Eggs are so versatile they even come in a carton, just shake and fry!

That's the beauty of eggs. you don't have to eat it for breakfast. Eggs are sophisticated enough that you can eat it for brunch, lunch, dinner, second dinner, or any time that you have that egg and ketchup desire. Eggs are international! You will never run out of recipes. Eggs are so flexible in taste that it goes with almost anything you may have in your fridge. Eggs and tuna patties, eggs and toast, eggs and veggie omelette, eggs and cheese, eggs and rice, eggs and what-so-ever your heart and stomach desires.

Yes, eggs are awesome, and of the many ways to cook eggs, scrambled eggs are the cat's meow. But they are not so awesome when they are scrambled into a heap of flat, loose, yellow beads that fall apart, or roll off of your fork when you try to eat them - and don't get me started on the crepe-thin omelets that I've seen people make.

Eggs, at their very best, should be THICK and FLUFFY! Did you hear the echoing effect on that one? Okay, and the secret to fluffy eggs? It's in the milk.

On your way to fluffy eggs

  1. Gather your favorite ingredients for making eggs, but don't take out the frying pan, you'll be using your microwave for this one.
  2. Use a ceramic or ceramic-like microwave-safe bowl large enough to hold all the ingredients. The soft plastic type bowls always seem to singe or scar, so lets stick to the solid stuff.
  3. Add your butter/margerine to the bowl and heat in the microwave just long enough to melt - watch out it will sputter. Remember, just heat it to melt the butter.
  4. Now that the butter is melted into a liquid, add eggs and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Slowly add milk and continue to whisk until all ingredients are mixed well.
  5. There are so many different varieties of microwaves, some will take less time, others will take more. It all depends how powerful your microwave is that dictates how long the cooking process will take. Luckily, I have pictures that will keep you on the write path.
  6. Place your bowl of raw ingredients into the microwave, and place on cook for 3 minutes. Go ahead and start cooking, but after one minute, check your eggs to see how it is doing.
  7. Continue on until you have the consistentcy of the pictures provided. Do not overcook your eggs or they will turn green - in which case you could over cook some ham to accompany your green eggs... Bwahahaha.
  8. Okay, back to it. Now, I only kept the egg in the shape of the bowl because I like to play with my food, and I wanted to show you how thick your eggs will be. But by all means, you can cut it up with a fork, but not too small. I like to serve it in pie pieces, but that's just me. Don't forget to drain off any excess butter.
  9. Add your favorite meats to the dish, and you've got yourself a nice start for the day, or afternoon, er, or second lunch. I hope you will enjoy this recipe as my family does. Peace. Aloha, ahui hou from Kawi's Kitchen.

Always good to hear from you Greensleeves. Yes, this one is a favorite of mine - its the milk that makes the eggs fluffy. Enjoy. Peace. Kawi.

Always useful to find new things to do with this most versatile of foods. I think I shall definitely have to give your method a try - I like milk so it should work for me, and the idea of using a microwave is always attractive to someone like me who doesn't know which end of a frying pan to grab hold of ! :-)

Lol, thanks for you comment insane - one less pot in the sink is always the better route. I know what you mean about craving the night before - that's why breakfast for dinner is always a favorite meal in our family. Peace. Kawi.

This is so much easier than making 'em in a skillet. By the way, thanks a lot for showing that picture of the steak & eggs at the top of this page; now I'm craving a high-protein breakfast and I haven't even went to bed yet; ha!

I would probably tenderly stir it up once it got close to the end cooking just to try to get it all to finish more evenly. Anyhoo, I'm sure you'll figure it out to get it just right. Peace. Kawi

It didn't look like yours, but it was fluffy. There was no water left in the bowl. I think adding all those other things required more cooking time because the center of the eggs wasn't done, but when they were done after another 90 seconds, the outside was almost too done. It turned out fine and I'll keep tweaking it 'til it's just right.

Hi Au fait, thanks for giving the recipe a try - it's the milk that gives the fluffiness to eggs - I wonder if using coconut milk or almond milk might do the trick if you have some diet restrictions. However, if you can do without the fluffiness, you can probably scale back on the water if there's water left in the bowl. Thanks for your comment Au fait. Peace. Kawi.

Just thought I'd let you know, made mine a little different so it didn't look like yours in the picture, but it tastes pretty good. I had to mess with it because I never can make a recipe even the first time without modifying it a little.

I used water (1 Tblsp for every egg) instead of milk, 3 eggs instead of 5, added chopped onion and a cup of shredded cheddar cheese, 1 Tblsp butter. Microwaved it for just over 5 minutes, a few minutes at a time so I would get the egg done but not turn it into leather.

Came out pretty good for a first effort and I'm almost finished eating it. I'll have to tinker with it a few times before I get it just right. Thanks for sharing your recipe. :)

I'm going to try your recipe this morning. I can't do it right now because I must take a thyroid medication in an hour and must not eat for 4 hours prior to taking the medication and at least 1 hour after, but once that time passes, I am going to make this recipe in my microwave. If it turns out well for me I will be so happy to have another quick easy recipe that requires less clean up.

Have you ever tried this adding chopped onions or green peppers? Maybe I'll try that too. :)

Voted up, interesting, and will share.

I have done this many times and I love it. Actually, it's probably my favorite way to cook eggs, when I'm in a hurry. It takes no time and it's very delish!

Eggs are my favorite. I often cook them in the microwave and use it on an english muffin for a sandwich. My favorite breakfast! :)

Thanks rj. I think it's easier than breaking out the skillet, you don't have to worry about egg sticking to the pan, or over cooking. You'll like it. Peace. Kawi.

An interesting recipe with great pictures. I never really thought about microwaving scrambled eggs before but it is worth a try.

Thanks Alison, and yes - the clean-up is easier, and the cooking generally faster. Peace. Kawi.

Yum! Scrambled eggs are my favourites too but I hate the way they stick to the pan when I cook them on the hob. For this reason, I will be trying out your tips for microwaving - your pictures are great, they make me feel hungry just looking at them. Voted up and useful, thanks.
