Scrambled eggs

Is there anything more versatile than eggs? Cooked in a variety of ways for breakfast or a snack and added to all manner of dishes sweet or savoury.  The perfect fast food in fact.

Sunday morning breakfast is generally a laid back affair, including more than one pot of tea and numerous slices of toast. Breakfast is generally on the front verandah come summer or winter (in winter we have the cafe blinds down and the outside gas heater on making it very pleasant).

Breakfast always includes eggs in some shape or form and simple scrambled eggs is one of my favourites. I now cook my scrambled eggs in the microwave, which is so quick and eliminates the necessity of scrubbing saucepans.

What to do…….
  • In a microwaveable utensil crack 4 eggs and whisk until they froth a little.
  • Add 1/4 cup milk approx. and whisk to combine.
  • Cover the utensil and cook in the microwave on high for 1 minute.
  • Give another little whisk and cook for a further 40 seconds or so until there are no runny parts.
  • Whisk gently just to break apart before serving.  
  • Add garnish of choice - having no parsley I added a few sprigs of thyme
Some people like the added condiment of ground pepper and HP Sauce!!
This makes a good size serve for two, with brekky on the table in a couple of minutes.

Had all good intentions of joining with Belleau Kitchen for the May challenge but missed the deadline. However, there was a good roundup of egg dishes - have a look here for egg dishes in abundance.


  1. they look so perfect and a great colour - you must have some healthy eggs there!... I love microwave scramble but I always add a teeny nob of butter at the end to loosen things up! Thanks for the link... i'd love you to play along in June when there's an open theme!

  2. Wonderful eggs, and such a super photograph, mine usually look murky grey. scrambled eggs are a huge favourite in our house.

  3. I do love scrambled eggs. Serving eggs this way is a favourite breakfast of mine on the weekend - with a bit of bacon on the side of course! xx

  4. Trying to cut down on a few things lately - but would have loved a bit of bacon myself.

  5. I love eggs too and even though we haven't got any chickens yet a neighbour down the road lets us have the best ever fresh eggs. My favourite are poached but I love softly scrambled are next best...yours look amazing.
    sunny days,

    1. We are very fortunate if we can get fresh eggs!

  6. I love scrambled eggs, so creamy a perfect fast comfort food. They are great for anytime but perfect for a long lazy enjoyable weekend breakfast. GG

  7. Hello, Denise! Thank you for this! I must admit I usually cook scrambled eggs in a pan, but it always makes such a mess of it. It's good to have good instructions for the microwave version. :-)

  8. You've hit on my weakness. When I'm tired I resort to eggs for dinner, and to tell the truth, I sometimes love it better than a full fancy meal, this is right up my alley!

  9. You just made me realize I haven't had scrambled eggs in a while, maybe it's breakfast for dinner tonight!
