There are microwave omelette makers available in the market but our recipe would just work with any microwaveable plate, bowl or saucer.

The Microwave omelet recipe given below is based on my own ingredients. You could use pretty much the same method of preparation with your favorite ingredients as well

Microwave Omelet Recipe

Eggs – 3
Milk – 2 tablespoons
Cheese – ¼ cup, grated
Butter – 2 tablespoons
Onion (Medium) – 1, finely chopped
Tomato (Small) – 1, finely chopped
Green & Red Pepper (Capsicum) – ¼ cup, finely chopped
Mushrooms – 3, Sliced into 4-5 pieces vertically and once horizontally
Salt and pepper to taste

Optional Ingredients
If you have a Mexican or Far East tongue, you may add 1 chopped chilli (preferably seeds removed) as well.

Feel free to add your chopped sausages, ham or even steamed and sliced chicken whichever is your favorite meat or processed meat.

Method of Preparation

  • Whisk eggs, milk, cheese, salt and fresh ground black pepper in a glass bowl till the mixture tends to form. Add all chopped vegetables and mix well
  • Grease a pie dish or suitable microwave safe dish with butter or cooking spray. Pour the mixture into the dish and cover it with a microwave safe lid (or plastic wrap with a little hole pricked)
  • Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir and cook again for one minute covered (total 2 minutes of covered cooking)
  • Remove the wrap, fluff up the mixture and if needed add some melt butter while stirring. Microwave uncovered on high for another minute. There you go!

Enjoy your breakfast omelet served right from your Microwave!

Now for the bonus tip…

Scrambled eggs in Microwave

If you have to make scrambled eggs in microwave, you just need to have chopped onions, salt, pepper and milk (optionally tomatoes) blended well. Microwave on high for two minutes covered. Stir well to break the semi solid mixture into lumps and microwave again on high for another 60 to 90 seconds uncovered.

Disclaimer: A lot of people do make omelets in the microwave as the raw egg odor in the appliance will not cease easily. But I didn’t find it worse than the smell of heating some of the frozen food
