Microwave Omelette Recipe

Cooking eggs in the microwave is hard to believe, but it’s true and the results are delicious! We were skeptical at first to make an omelette in the microwave, but we’re changed forever. The eggs cook easily and fluffy too. The best part about this is that you can microwave the texture of the omelette to your perfect preference. Use our base timing and then cook for addition increments of about 15 seconds until the eggs are to your liking. It’s really that easy. Add your favorite melting cheese and you can have an instant omelette for breakfast while getting ready in the morning.

How to Microwave an Omelette (Tips)

  • Always add enough seasoning to your eggs: make sure to salt the eggs for ultimate flavor. Under-seasoned scrambled eggs just don’t taste as good, no matter what technique you use.
  • Start with our base timing and keep stirring and adding additional microwave cooking time of 15 seconds until the eggs are perfect to your preference.
  • Make sure to fold in the sides of the egg to get the omelette fluffy.
  • You can use any type of good melting cheese. Our favorite is still cheddar cheese or even parmesan cheese.
  • Cover the bowl: You don’t want to have splattered egg in the microwave. Just make sure it’s a microwave safe cover.

General microwave cooking time notes:

  • 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.
