Microwave Omelet

23 Jun

I try to bring my lunch (and breakfast) to work as often as possible. You’ll notice that most of the recipes on this blog are for more servings than I have people to eat them! But that is done by design: it ensures at least a day or two of lunches from the same tasty, healthy meal.

But that is not always possible. And in those instances when you want to stay healthy and bring something from home, but just don’t have the time, you must get creative! This recipe (can it even  be called that?) is a result of creativity and hunger combined. It’s easy, it’s fast, it’s customizable, and it can be made in your office kitchenette, dorm room, or anywhere else you have access to a microwave. The ingredients are simple, but you can get fancy too!

Microwave Omelet

Serves 1

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp oil or PAM or butter (some sort of greasing agent)
  • fillings: roasted red bell pepper, shredded cheese, leftover cooked grains or veggies = whatever is in your fridge that you can grab on the run!
  • salt and pepper to taste

Grease a microwavable bowl, one that can hold about 2 cups worth of liquid. I used the oil that the roasted red bell peppers were packed in to grease my glass dish. This IS important, and will make clean up much easier!

In another bowl or mug, whisk eggs with water. Pour into prepared microwavable dish. Sprinkle in your fillings. Cover with a paper towel and microwave for 90-120 seconds.

Look how fluffy the eggs get!

Carefully remove, as it will be very hot! Let sit a few minutes before eating. Pair with a salad, toast, fresh veggies, or eat it on its own!

    I have a stone wave (brand name) dish and it does beautiful omelets/frittata. It also is great for making a small portion of anything in the microwave including a small baked potato. I love quick and easy.
