To tell you the truth, I don’t particularly care for scrambled eggs that are cooked in the microwave. However, MacGyver, who is 8 years old, thinks they are fabulous! He can get out of bed and cook himself scrambled eggs with absolutely no help from me. Moms you gotta love that! And he thinks he is well on his way to becoming a professional chef! FREE printable recipe guide at the end of this post.

MacGyver follows the recipe below with one exception. Since he’s a growing boy, he now scrambles TWO extra-large eggs.

  • Egg Cracking Tip: I’ve taught my children to gently tap the side of the egg on the counter-top. It still gets a bit messy, but it is easier than trying to break the egg on the side of the bowl.

Scrambled Eggs


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp. water
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup grated cheese


  • bowl
  • fork
  • teaspoon
  • ¼ measuring cup

Step 1: Use the back of the teaspoon to spread the butter inside the bowl.

  • We have found that a soup bowl works best for microwave cooking.

Step 2: Gently whisk together the egg, salt and water.

Step 3: Microwave egg for 1 minute and stir again.

Step 4: Top with cheese and microwave 30 seconds.

  • Adjust cooking time to cook egg through.
