Microwave Eggs

Microwave Eggs Preparation time 5 mins Serves 1 person


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


Melt butter in microwave-safe dish in microwave for 30 seconds (uncovered). 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. Meanwhile beat two eggs. Pour egg over the ingredients and with a spoon stir to make sure eggs travel right through to the base of the dish. Re-cover with plastic film and cook further 1½ minutes. Let sit a further 1½ minutes to complete cooking and gently remove the plastic.
