Don't ask Dr. Internets
Microwave scrambled eggs: 45 seconds on high Results in BAD...just...just...not good.

The alternative instructions: 90 seconds on 50% power seems to work without blowing up the microwave...however, the egg eaters in my household turned up their noses at the result.

Current Mood: disappointeddisappointed

Alton Brown to the rescue with the stovetop method

you must have one heckuva powerful microwave...

The trick to microwave scrambled eggs is to cook them in bursts short enough to just cook the edges, then whisk the cooked part back into the goo. This makes them not one burned mess at the edges with a gooey center.

Also, don't cover them or overcook them, as the water they give off will settle back on the bottom and make them mushy.

Scrambled eggs only take like two minutes on the stove anyway. :-p Three if it's a lot of eggs.

They do come out odd, but they taste just fine. I used to do them that way, too, but haven't in a long time. No particular reason, though. Just haven't. *shrug*

I usually take a 6oz chinese bowl, and beat one egg with a little milk, spices, and usually some crumbled cheese, then nuke for 1:15. But it all depends on your microwave.

more eggs in the bowl you'll need to stir around a couple times. Took maybe 4 min when I combined spinach & feta & 2 eggs.
