Microwave Scrambled Eggs

This recipe makes a very light, fluffy scrambled egg. The paprika adds extra flavor, but doesn’t overpower the other ingredients.

Serves: 2


  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1⁄8 tsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. butter


  • In a small bowl, lightly beat the eggs with the milk, salt, pepper, and paprika.
  • Place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high heat for 30 seconds, and then for 5 seconds at a time until the butter melts (total cooking time should be 30 to 45 seconds).
  • Pour the egg mixture into the bowl, stirring.
  • Microwave the egg on high heat for 45 seconds. Stir to break up the egg a bit, then continue microwaving for 30 seconds, and then for 15 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until the egg is just cooked through. Serve immediately.
