how this microwave egg bowl fits into my lifestyle
I'm all about breakfast I can make the night before. Hence my obsession with overnight oats. But I've found a way to make eggs work for my mornings aka: a grab & go breakfast that's savory and high in protein & veggies. Yes, an easy way to get some extra color and fun flavors into your breakfast. Enter microwave scrambled eggs.
I actually rarely eat savory breakfasts. Occasionally, I'll make a nice omelet
- like this apple & sharp cheddar omelet
- or my absolute favorite Spanish tortilla depatata that I learned while living in Spain 7 years ago. My heart is breaking for this incredible country right now (and for one of my most favorite cities-Barcelona)
How it’ll make your life easier
These are great because you can literally whip a few ingredients together & heat them up, walk away & they’re ready to go, OR you can whip all the ingredients up and store them in the fridge overnight then cook at home or at work.
Quick Notes on This Recipe
Can I microwave eggs?
Yes absolutely, I was worried they'd get dry and gross, but with enough milk, they were fluffy and delicious.
How to microwave scrambled eggs
Microwave breakfast recipes are just the best, these scrambled eggs are easy, mix them up like you normally would, and instead of pouring them into a pan, you just put them in the microwave and let the microwave do all the work. No need to stand over the stove, you can just throw them in the microwave and finish getting ready or get back to work, or let's be honest, snooze for just a few more minutes.
What to add to the eggs
You can add any vegetables, or no vegetables to these easy scrambled eggs, they're super customizable.
Will they make my kitchen stink?
They didn't make mine stink! My kitchen didn't stink afterward and the microwave didn't either, so all is good on the nice coworker front. Unless my kitchen already stunk & I’ve gone nose blind to this (totally possible).
