We all know mornings can be hectic. And spending much time in the kitchen isn’t always an option.

But don’t take my word for it! Try the recipe and see for yourself.

Fluffy Microwave Scrambled Eggs Recipe

No need to take out your pan and use the stove to make the fluffiest, creamiest scrambled eggs!

All you’ll need are eggs, milk, a pinch of salt, and the microwave. 

It might sound too good to be true, but these microwave scrambled eggs have the ideal balance of taste and texture. 

They’re rich and creamy, with a soft, melt-in-your-mouth fluffiness that’ll make you forget all about the stovetop method.

You only need three ingredients for this. But feel free to add extras, like onions, spices, or cheese!

  • Eggs: Use large eggs for consistent results. They’re the backbone of this simple, delightful dish.
  • Milk: Whole milk gives a creamy texture. Alternatively, use half-and-half for added richness.
  • Salt: Use either Kosher or fine table salt. Add less if you’re using the latter. 

How to Make Microwave Scrambled Eggs

Given the lack of ingredients, you won’t be surprised to hear that this breakfast egg recipe comes together in a flash.

Just remember: don’t skimp on the salt! It’s where the eggs get most of their flavor.

  1. Crack and whisk the eggs into a microwave-safe bowl. Then whisk in the milk and salt.
  1. Microwave the eggs on medium-high. You’ll do this in 30-second intervals and whisk after each spin.
  1. Check the eggs after 2 minutes. They might need 2 1/2 minutes or longer if the eggs are especially large.

Keep in mind: the eggs will keep cooking in the bowl, so don’t cook them too much. They should be a little runny when you take them out.

Tips for the Best Scrambled Eggs

If you’ve ever had rubbery eggs, I get why you’d be hesitant to try this. But if you keep these tips in mind, you’ll have no issues:

  • Pick a suitable container. Use a round, microwave-safe bowl to ensure even cooking.
  • Don’t overcook the eggs. As mentioned, they’ll keep cooking even out of the microwave. So, slightly undercook the eggs, and let them sit for a minute to finish cooking.
  • Adjust for microwave wattage. Since microwaves vary, start with shorter cook times and adjust in 10-second increments for your specific microwave.
  • Go bold with seasoning. Don’t hesitate on the salt, and feel free to add a dash of hot sauce or black pepper.
  • Add butter for richness. Pop a pat of butter into the bowl after the first 30 seconds, and it’ll melt right into the eggs.


Think of this 3-ingredient recipe as a blank canvas for mix-ins and toppings. The sky’s the limit!

Check out these suggestions, and let me know which ones you like most.

  • Add cheese for richness. Mix in shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack to make your eggs creamy and cheesy. You can also try Gruyere or Gouda for a fancy breakfast.
  • Bring in the meat. Diced ham, chopped bacon, or cooked breakfast sausage will add a hearty touch to your scrambled eggs.
  • Mix in veggies for freshness. Whisk in diced bell peppers, onions, or spinach for a healthy twist. Be sure to pre-cook them to avoid excess moisture.
  • Make it extra creamy with heavy cream. Replace milk with half-and-half or heavy cream for an ultra-luxurious texture.
  • Spice it up. Elevate your flavors with garlic powder or red pepper flakes.
  • Experiment with herbs. Add fresh basil, rosemary, oregano, or thyme for an aromatic kick.

Topping Suggestions

Add any of these to your finished eggs to make them more exciting and filling:

  • Fresh diced tomatoes
  • Salsa
  • Green onions
  • Extra cheese
  • Sliced Avocado
  • Hot Sauce

What to Serve With Scrambled Eggs

I love these microwave scrambled eggs with other classic breakfast faves, like bacon, sausage, and carbs. 

There are lots of great starchy options, but here are some of my favorites:

Storing Leftovers 

I doubt there’ll be any because these scrambled eggs are just too good.

But in case you do have some:

To Store: Transfer leftovers to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4 days.

Reheat the refrigerated scrambled eggs in the microwave for a few seconds at 50% power.
