I love scrambled eggs. If I was limited to one food forever, scrambled eggs would be up there. What I don’t like is mess: scrubbing the pan for ages with little bits of burnt egg all encrusted onto the bottom. There has to be a better way. And there is. Now I make scrambled eggs exclusively in the microwave. Read on to find out how.
Scrambled Eggs – A High Protein Hit
If you’re working hard and training hard, you’ll need extra protein. Supplements are fine, but your main source of protein should be from whole foods.
Eggs are a great choice because:
They’re cheap – buy in bulk and they’re a few pence each.
They have top protein. Egg protein is used as the benchmark for protein quality.
They also contain saturated and unsaturated fats as well as vitamin D – all of which are necessary for male sex hormone production.
One large egg = around 7 grams of protein. Have 3, scrambled with cheese on a whole-wheat bagel and you have a breakfast of champions.
The only problem is making them. As I’ve noted already, scrambling in a pan is messy. And then there’s the microwave…
Get it wrong and you’re looking at a grey, rubbery mess. You might as well have stuck with the ‘Special K’.
How to Microwave Scrambled Eggs
This recipe is the product of years of trial and error. I’ve got it cracked (oh dear) now to the point where I get it right every time. Keep reading to find out how you too can become a Whisking Wizard (too much?).
To make my microwave scrambled eggs, you will need:
3 Large Eggs
1 tbsp Butter or Coconut Oil
1 Slice of Low fat Cheese
1. Grease a microwaveable bowl with the butter or oil. This should be large enough to accommodate the cooked eggs – they will expand!
2. Add the eggs and milk and mix together to break up the egg yolks.
3. Microwave on full power for 90 seconds (1 1/2 minutes). Take out and stir to break up any cooked bits of egg.
4. Microwave again on full power for 40 seconds then take out and stir. Repeat this until the eggs are cooked and light an fluffy (probably another 2 or three 40-second blasts).
5. Break up cheese and stir in to hot eggs. Spread on a high protein bagel or an English muffin. Enjoy.
Outrageously simple isn’t it. You can now make scrambled eggs even if you’ve sucked at it before.

Easy isn’t it? You could do this the night before work for a snack or even make it for your kids if you’re in a rush (mine love scrambled eggs). Why not experiment with other cheeses or adding spices such as cumin or chilli for a bit of extra flavour?
