Making the Perfect Scrambled Egg in the Microwave

Updated on January 11, 2012

Scramble eggs are a great breakfast food. The problem is the eggs take a while to cook on the stove and leave behind a messy pan. I discovered a trick to making the perfect scrambled egg in the microwave. Try using eggbeaters instead of regular eggs. I can't taste the difference. A serving of eggbeaters is under half the calories of an equivalent serving of eggs. In about two minutes, you'll have the perfect scramble eggs fresh from the microwave.

All you need is a microwavable bowl and eggbeaters. A 4 oz tub of eggbeaters is equivalent to two large eggs and makes a nice serving for breakfast. Eggbeaters can be bought in 4 oz tubs or you can measure it from a larger container. Put the eggbeaters in a microwavable bowl. Cook in the microwave on high for a minute, stir, and cook for another 45 seconds to a one minute. It's that easy.

Try spicing up your scrambled eggs with some steak seasoning. I like to sprinkle some shredded cheese on my scrambled eggs too. Precooked bacon is another option. Be sure to check the eggbeaters box for more recipe ideas.

Eggbeaters scrambled eggs are a great breakfast for anyone trying to lose weight. Without any toppings, it's a 60 calorie dish. It's packed with protein that will help you to not get hungry before lunch time. Try it, you'll be hooked too!

    This is very good... I was a little afraid of microwaved eggs for a long time, but I've actually been eating this for breakfast most days for a while now :) Just as good as in the pan, with far less clean up, and less calories (even if you use whole eggs- I usually do 2 whites and one whole- you're not using butter or oil to grease a pan) Good tip!

    Scrambled eggs are a big hit at my house! I am going to have to try the steak seasoning tip that you suggested. I have also tried adding goat cheese in my eggs, it makes the scrambled eggs so delicious!

    When I was really young I used this method. I don't normally use the premade scrambled egg stuff though.

    My parents get a dozen eggs daily from their chickens. So i get tons of free

    fresh eggs! ^_^
