How to Cook an Omelette With a Microwave Omelette Pan

Omelets range from simple to extravagant, depending on the filling, but they don't have to be difficult to prepare. Cooking an omelet in the microwave is a simple and time-saving way to create this popular breakfast dish. A microwave omelet pan makes the process even easier, and saves you the trouble of flipping the omelet. Plus, because a microwave omelet pan is designed to allow for a quick release, cleanup is far simpler than when you cook an omelet on the stove top.

Step 1

Prepare your omelet filling. For a basic omelet, this involves chopping about 2 tbsp. onion and 2 tbsp. bell pepper, and grating about 1 oz. cheese.

Step 2

Break three eggs into a mixing bowl. Add a dash of salt and pepper to the eggs. Using a whisk, gently mix the eggs until the yolks and whites are combined.

Step 3

Pour half of the egg mixture into each side of your microwave omelet pan.

Step 4

Set the open microwave omelet pan into the microwave and heat on high for one minute and 30 seconds.

Step 5

Open the oven and add the prechopped filling. Snap the lid shut and return the pan to the microwave. Heat on high for 30 seconds.

Step 6

Remove your omelet pan from the microwave, open it and flip the cooked omelet onto a plate. Serve immediately. Microwaved omelets can deflate rapidly if left to sit before serving.
