Warning-they won't be great but here goes.


Whisk up eggs,melt knob of butter in jug.
Add eggs (seasoned)microw for 30 secs at a time,stirring until it looks ok.
Depending on the power/no of eggs-may have to do 20 second bursts.

Good luck.

Splash of milk, knob (love that word!) of butter, salt and pepper and stir quickly with a fork.

do it about a minute at a time on full power and wiggle a fork around it then another minute until it looks ok.

whisk them up, add a knob of butter, microwave for 2 minutes, check and stir, put in again for a minute if needed. keep an eye on it, when it puffs right up it's done. i like mine cooked right through, i know others like theirs squidgy.

We get great scrambled eggs from the microwave but you do have to watch them.
Melt knob of butter. Add eggs (2 per person) and beat up this mixture with miniwhisk or fork. Add pepper (or even salt) if you want.I don't think you need milk or cream but this has been a great subject of MN debate in the past. If cooking for one person, you should first microwave on high for 40 seconds, then give it a good stir to break up the set part into the liquid part, then for 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each burst. When it gets nearly ready you need to look at what is happening second by second.
This works extremely well as long as you keep watching and keep stirring the mixture. You also end up with more scrambled egg than if you cooked it in a pan on the stove.

I wouldn't leave it 20 secs between beatings. More like 10 secs to start with, then about 5 secs. 20 secs can make the difference between soft and lovely scrambled egg, and yellow rubber

thank you..I succeeded

more or less tyhe lilymaid method..neirotic stirring

I have always ended up with the kind of thing that insulates hot water tanks before

Yep I am a neurotic stirrer! Never be distracted when making scrambled egg. It needs total commitment.
