How to Cook Eggos in the Microwave

Eggo waffles are a long-time morning favorite. They are easy to make, cook quickly and serve as a quick breakfast on hectic mornings. Whether your toaster isn't working, is being used by another member of your household or you just want to try something different, you can opt to microwave your Eggo waffles. Microwaving your Eggo waffles can provide you with the same taste without having to break out your toaster.

Step 1

Set your waffles out on the counter for 10 minutes to begin the thawing process prior to microwaving.

Step 2

Remove the plastic wrapping from your Eggos.

Step 3

Stack your Eggos on a microwave safe dish. Place a piece of paper towel between each Eggo to help absorb any water as your Eggos thaw.

Step 4

Place your microwave safe dish in the microwave.

Step 5

Cook your Eggos on high power. Cook one Eggo for 30 seconds. Cook two Eggos for 45 seconds. Cook three Eggos for 1 minute 15 seconds.

Step 6

Touch the center of your Eggos to make sure they are warm enough. If not, heat for an additional 15 seconds at a time until warm.

Step 7

Remove the plate from the microwave. Remove the paper towel pieces between your waffles and serve.

Things You'll Need

  • Microwave safe dish

  • Paper towels


Microwave heating times may vary based on the quality of microwave you own. As you microwave Eggos more and more frequently, you will learn to adjust the cooking time based on the intensity of your microwave.

Boost the nutrition of your breakfast by topping your Eggos with fresh or frozen fruit or peanut butter. Avoid butter and sugary syrups, which can add extra empty calories to your breakfast.
