Scrambled Eggs… in the Microwave!

A couple of weeks ago I was at an Australian’s friend place, and she said “I feel like scrambled eggs, do you want some?”. She quickly beat a couple of eggs in a bowl and then… put it in the microwave! “WTF are you doing?” I asked, and I received that classic “where the hell have you lived so far?!” look I get when I ask stuff about cooking. We Italians grow up in a bubble of cooking traditions, which are definitely the best in the world, but we hardly get in touch with more exotic things. At least in the country side where I’m from… Anyway the eggs were ready in no time, with no effort, and were also delicious!

So today I tried to emulate my friend and googled for a quick tutorial for scrambled eggs in the microwave. It’s actually a no brainer task, but here’s the link I found: 2 Minute Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons shredded cheese
salt, pepper, and any other herbs you choose to use

Directions:
Coat a 12 oz. microwave safe coffee mug or other dish with cooking spray. Add eggs and milk and beat till blended.
Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds; stir.
Microwave until eggs are almost set, 30 to 45 seconds longer.
Top with cheese and season with salt, pepper, and herbs.

I could have taken a picture, but it wouldn’t have been as nice as the one in the post.

One other cool thing about scrambled eggs in the microwave is that you don’t need to clean any pan! I’ve always been annoyed by a dirty pan, with spots covered of a tiny egg layer, kinda hard to take off, after making scrambled eggs. No such thing with the bowl + microwave combo. Smart! 🙂

Here’s the orginal buzzfeed in which if found the link for the recepie.

Stay tuned and enjoy your eggs!
