Egg in a bowl low carb breakfast

Basic Microwaved Scrambled Eggs

  • Author: Jack Sante Feldman


This scrambled egg dish will have you eating low-carb in no time. Try it for a quick bite without any of the after snack blues.



3 large eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese


Add the eggs to a medium-sized microwave safe bowl. Whisk the eggs until the yolks and whites are combined. 

Add spices and stir. Stir in cheese and any other add-in you like.

Put bowl in microwave oven and cook for 45 seconds on high. Microwave times will vary with your microwave power, so watch carefully!

Remove bowl and stir.

Continue cooking in 30 second increments, stirring gently after each cook time, until eggs are cooked and fluffy. This cooking and stirring process imitates the stirring and scraping you normally do in the skillet over the stove — so don’t forget!



If you are using a spice blend with color, wait and add it after the first round of cooking. Otherwise, you will stain the eggs a weird color.


Burrito: Place the cooked scrambled eggs, salsa and cooked black beans in a low-carb wrap for a breakfast burrito.

Sandwich: For a take on the famous fast-food sandwich, toast an English muffin, brush each side with butter, add your choice of ham, turkey or bacon to the bottom half of the muffin, top with cooked eggs and a slice of your favorite cheese. Place the muffin top on top. There’s a little less guilt when you are choosing the ingredients.
