Microwave Eggs


  • 10g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup of your favourite omelette ingredients
  • 3 thin slices mozzarella cheese
  • fresh herbs (if desired)
  • pepper (to taste)


  1. Melt butter in microwave-safe dish in microwave for 30 seconds (uncovered).
  2. Put ingredients into the melted butter, gently tossing to coat. Cover with plastic film, and pierce a hole in top. Cook 2½ minutes on high. Remove and let sit (so that steam subsides), say one minute.
  3. Meanwhile beat two eggs and pour them over the ingredients and with a spoon stir to make sure eggs travel right through to the base of the dish. Cover with plastic film again and microwave for a further 1½ minutes.
  4. Let sit a further 1½ minutes to complete cooking and gently remove the plastic before serving.
