Eggs are a breakfast staple. Not only do eggs contain a wide range of vitamins, but they also contain selenium, a cancer-fighting compound, and phosphorous, which is needed for healthy bones and teeth. 

Pulling out a skillet several times a week to cook eggs on the stove can be taxing. So instead, you should cook your scrambled eggs in the microwave since it takes less than 5 minutes to make. Plus, you can serve scrambled with many foods such as bacon, sausage, and keto or gluten-free bread or add mix-ins such as bell peppers and onions. So let this Microwave Scrambled Egg be your go-to breakfast or brunch dish any day of the week. 

How Do You Keep Scrambled Eggs From Getting Watery In The Microwave?

When it comes to scrambled eggs, liquid can be a blessing or a curse. Add too much liquid, and your scrambled eggs will be sitting in a pool of water. To keep your eggs from getting watery, use little to no liquid. It's best to add two teaspoons of liquid to your eggs. We added 1 1/2 teaspoons to this recipe and used two eggs, which worked beautifully.
 

Why Are My Scrambled Eggs So White?

There are two primary reasons why your scrambled eggs could turn out white. One of them is out of your control. The egg color is strongly influenced by the food the bird is fed. For example, the yolk will be yellow if the birds are fed yellow corn. However, if the birds are fed white corn, the yolk could be white. 

The second reason your scrambled eggs could turn out white is that they were improperly mixed. If there are large clumps of egg white in the batter, they will show up in the final product, and your scrambled eggs will look more white than yellow. Again, it's best to whisk the eggs well with a whisk or fork to be uniform. 

How Many Eggs Should You Scramble For One Person?

You should plan on 1-2 eggs for each person. So, if you are serving four people, you will need to cook eight eggs for four people.
