Scrambled Eggs in the Microwave?

So, my kids won't eat scrambled eggs from the pan anymore--whether I put butter in them or not (gasp!). They prefer them in the microwave.
And oh my, has my breakfast cleanup gotten easier because of it!

Our weekly menu has eggs on it twice a week. (We have chickens remember?)

So, here's how we do it:

Spray a large ceramic or glass bowl with nonstick spray.

Add five eggs (our eggs are on the smallish side since our chickens who are laying are fairly young--our old girls are boycotting due to the rain (this is my Chicken Psychology degree at work)). So if your eggs are larger, you may want to only use four.

Add a splash of whole milk (I'm sure any milk will due, but this is what I use.) Sprinkle is some salt to taste (we use sea salt.) Whip it up with a fork until the mixture is evenly colored and textured.

Heat in microwave uncovered for 3 minutes and 33 seconds. I like threes. Then, take it out, and use a knife and fork to cut it up and mix it around (this is not a scientific or precise process.) Any remaining liquidyness (yah, I know, tell Webster) will scramble up during this process I have found due to the heat of the mixture.


Easy clean up and no yucky cooking smell in the house either! Let me know what you think!

This is brilliant. We are remodeling our kitchen and will only have a microwave for while. My kids love scrambled eggs so I'm going to give this a try!
