How to make scrambled eggs in a Microwave?

In the series about eggs, we saw a post on making scrambled eggs. In this post I would like to write about making scrambled eggs but in a microwave oven than a conventional way of preparation. It is all similar to preparing scrambled eggs in a pan, this microwaved scrambled eggs.

Why did I want to write this post? cause I have an oven and have used it very sparingly and most often than not it would be used to boil water and heat coffee or milk. One fine day I thought to myself how else can I make use of the oven and it was a realization that eggs can be tested (the one thing that would not require greater time and energy). So there I started this experimentation with eggs and to my disbelief the end product (scrambled eggs) were done perfect to the "T"

Now, I go right to this post... find below the ingredients and the instructions.

Ingredients : (the same ingredients as a regular preparation)

3 nos - Eggs
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp - Butter
3 tbsp - Milk
1 tbsp - Cheddar Cheese

Cooking Instructions :

- Break the eggs into a bowl
- Add one tablespoon of milk, this will ensure the dish does not turn out tough or rubbery.
- Mix well until the color and texture are uniform throughout.
- Add salt and pepper to season
- Grease a microwave safe bowl with cooking spray or butter. If you do this, the egg batter will not stick to the bowl in the cooking process.
- Place in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Remove, as they will be partially formed.
- Use your fork and stir them gently, so that the uncooked blends in with the still loose egg. Set the eggs back in the microwave.
- Microwave the eggs for about 10 seconds more and check them. The moisture content depends a lot on how you want it. If wanting drier eggs place them in the oven for a few more seconds.
- Microwave for 10 second intervals until you get more solid egg than liquid. Be sure not to overcook or burn the eggs.
