Easy Microwaveable Omelet

This is one of my go-to meals for morning cooking.  I can’t stand slaving away over the stove but I really love omelets.  I’m also terrible at making them on the stove.  I almost always burn it or break it.  So I’ve figured out how to make the perfect omelet in the microwave!  Now there is no excuse that you don’t have time to cook in the morning: less than 5 minutes to cook and however long it takes you to eat!  You could also stuff this in a wrap for an on-the-go breakfast!

2.  In a large (wide) bowl, mix together your meat, any veggies you would like, and your eggs.  Don’t mix all the way or the eggs will puff up in the microwave.


3.  Put the mixture in the microwave for about 1 minute and check it.  If the sides of the omelet are cooked but the inside is still raw (which will happen), chop it up with a fork and remix it for even cooking.  Check it every minute or so.


4.  It should take about 45-60 seconds per egg to cook depending on your microwave.  After it is cooked all the way but still looks moist, it is done.  Mine took 2.5 minutes for 3 eggs and came out perfect!


5.  Enjoy breakfast in less than 3 minutes!

  1. The part I like about this is NOT scrubbing my giant stainless steel skillet. I’d still have to scrub but a measuring cup is SMALL and could be left soaking! (I don’t have a washing machine).

    1. I’m still trying to figure out how to make it not stick. And it actually cleans easier/faster if you do it when the bowl is still hot! Maybe if I tried buttering the bowl but I think it would just melt as it cooked? Still easier than the pot!!

      1. I tested dairy (even grass-fed, no gross) and can’t do it. I don’t think I’d bother oiling (coconut or evoo), though. I never do the pan. We’ll see when I try it!

    1. The first time I tried it, I thought “OMG why didn’t anyone tell me I could microwave eggs?!” and haven’t looked back since! I figured I should share the good news 🙂
