Fast & Easy Eggs (in the Microwave!)

These are the easiest, fastest, fluffiest eggs you will ever make. Clean-up is even easy, because you can eat them in the same bowl that you prepare them in. Bonus!

Recipe: 2 eggs + 2 Tablespoons of milk + salt/pepper to taste in a microwave-safe bowl. Mix well with a fork. Microwave for 2 minutes. Voila! Breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner is served!

Step 1: 2 Eggs + 2 Tablespoons Milk + Salt & Pepper

Step 1 {Variation}: 2 Eggs + 2 Tablespoons Milk + Salt/Pepper + Garlic Powder + Mozzarella Cheese (Can also add cut bell peppers, mushrooms, ham, etc.)

Step 2: Mix Well

Step 3: Microwave for 2 minutes. {If adding cheese/veggies/ham, etc., add an additional 30 seconds or so}

It takes 1 Tablespoon of milk and 1 minute of microwaving for every egg. You can add cut-up bell peppers, ham, mushrooms, shredded cheese, etc. for a yummy, quick omelette. Just add whatever ingredients you want and mix it all up before microwaving. I have found that I need to add a bit more microwave time when I add veggies or cheese or anything besides seasoning. I like to sprinkle a bit of garlic powder in, too.

Makes a quick, yummy breakfast or meal! When my kids were younger, I would often make them these eggs for dinner if I was making something that was too spicy for them to enjoy.

My hubby and I have had many a date night where I made the kids these eggs for dinner and then tucked them in for the night. After they were in bed, we would order Curbside-to-Go from 54th Street or Applebee's and have a nice late dinner and a movie at home.

If making these for the kids as a meal, I usually serve them with a side of fresh veggies with ranch. They like dipping the eggs in the ranch, also.

This also makes a great, quick, protein-filled breakfast without the mess of making a traditional omelette. And if you are really pressed for time, you can even take these eggs with you on-the-go, straight from the microwave! {Although keep in mind that the bowl will be extremely hot at first!}

{Note: In case there is any question about this, the eggs should be cracked into the bowl. This recipe is for scrambled/omelette eggs and not hard-boiled. Microwaving an egg in its shell will cause it to explode!}
