The Three Quickest Ways to Microwave Eggs

The Three Quickest Ways to Microwave Eggs

We've all been there. You wake up craving eggs, but simply can't gather the energy (or time) to whip out the skillet or pot to make an omelette. Well, we have some good news for you if you've ever found yourself in such a predicament: You can make those eggs in the microwave. Yes, the microwave! You can scramble and poach them, or even make an omelette. The Buzzfeed video above explains just how to do it all.

Two-minute scrambled eggs
For scrambled eggs that are ready in just two minutes, crack two eggs in a mug. Then, add a splash of milk for fluffiness and beat the eggs and milk to combine. Set your microwave for two minutes on high. When they come out, they'll be fluffy scrambled eggs—and you won't have a pan to wash!

Poached eggs
To make a poached egg in the microwave, crack one egg in a mug and add 1/3 cup of water. Cover it with a dish, and set the microwave for 50 seconds on high. If it's not done yet, give it another 10 seconds.

Two-and-a-half-minute omelette
For an omelette that's ready in under 3 minutes, crack three eggs in a bowl. Beat to combine the yolks and whites, and then spread the uncooked eggs evenly on a greased flat dish. Cover the dish and microwave for 90 seconds. Remove the plate and stir, then give it another 60 seconds in the microwave uncovered. Once your eggs are cooked, fold and eat! (We totally recommend adding some cheese in there.)

Everyone's microwave is different, and power can vary, so you should adjust the above times accordingly. Also, always be sure the bowls, mugs and dishes you are using are microwave safe!
