How to Make Microwave Breakfast Burritos (Tips)

  • Cooking with raw bulk sausage: Make sure to have your raw sausage crumbled into small pieces, NOT In one big chunk. The crumbled or flattened sausage will cook quicker. You can also use bulk Italian sausage or whatever uncooked sausage you like.
  • Use our base timing to cook your eggs. Add additional 15 second increments to cook the eggs to your preferred timing. Cover the bowl so you don’t have splattering sausage oil or egg all over your microwave.
  • Here’s more of our microwave egg recipes that you can make into a burrito: scrambled eggs , easy omelette, basic egg “fried egg” and sausage egg scramble.
  • Add extra cheese to make the burrito extra cheesy. Or you can add what ever fillings you like from hash browns to veggies like spinach and bell peppers. Or even add fresh salsa.
  • All recipe details are in the recipe box below.

General microwave cooking time notes:
  • 600-800w – Lower Wattage Microwaves: More time often needed

  • 1200-1300w – High Wattage Microwaves: Less time often needed
Microwave Safe Containers & Lids
  • Microwave safe glass (particularly borosilicate glass) & ceramic containers are the recommended choice. *Do not use cracked or otherwise damaged containers.
  • Microwave safe plastic containers are considered safe by the FDA but many health organizations caution against using them
  • Never use plastics (containers, bags, wrap, etc.) that are not labeled microwave safe. Never use styrofoam, metal, or aluminum foil. 
  • Lids – microwave safe glass, ceramic or silicone is best. A microwave safe plate works great as a lid. Parchment paper, wax paper, or paper towels work fine, but may not hold the steam in as much (many recipes benefits from the steam retention). Microwave safe plastic lids are considered acceptable. Usually we prefer to use a lid from glass, ceramic, or silicone and just use the microwave safe plastic lids that come with the containers for storing.
