I always find myself making plans to spend my Sundays catching up with friends and family while enjoying a delicious brunch. With the holiday season around the corner, I am slimming down on the non-essentials for a month or two. Instead of going out EVERY weekend for brunch, I invite everyone over for a Sunday meal. Try making a big breakfast for your loved ones at home using a Sharp Microwave Drawer! And don’t worry about the mess, we’ve got a few microwave oven cleaning hacks that will do just the trick for post-Sunday cleanup.
Using microwave-friendly recipes cuts down on prep and cook time and will leave you with a delicious brunch for everyone to enjoy. I’ve put together some of my favorite microwave-friendly breakfast recipes that are perfect for any brunch adventure. Make sure to share your tasty microwavable brunch creations with us on Instagram by using the hashtag #SharpHome and tagging @SharpHomeUSA.
Whether it’s in a brunch classic dish like an eggs benedict or just simply placed upon avocado toast, poached eggs are a must-have. The process of poaching can be challenging to master, and even more complicated before your first cup of coffee in the morning. That’s why I love to use my Microwave Drawer to cook my eggs perfectly every time. Poaching an egg with your microwave is simple, just add water and white vinegar to a six-ounce custard cup and creak the egg into the cup, piercing the yolk with a toothpick. Then loosely cover the custard cup with microwave-safe plastic wrap and cook in the microwave for about one minute, or until your desired done-ness. I prefer my yokes a bit more runny, so 1 minute is just right for me. Once your egg is poached to your liking, remove the egg from the custard cup with a spoon and place it on top of some avocado toast or breakfast sausage.
When I go out for brunch, I expect variety. I rarely want to choose just one breakfast dish (because what is the fun in that?), so I pull together a few mini-dishes so I can sample a little bit of everything. Mug pancakes are perfect sample size and satisfy even the most intense pancake craving. Simply combine ¼ cup of pancake mix with some milk in a microwave-safe mug or ramekin and cook for about one minute. Make sure to serve with some fresh maple syrup drizzled on top.
This decadent lemon spread is perfectly paired with a variety of our favorite breakfast treats. My favorite? Spread on top some vanilla pound cake for a deliciously sweet brunch treat. Make this spread quickly in the microwave by combining melted butter, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Whisk in some eggs and heat in the microwave for 3-4 minutes, stirring every minute. Let cool in the refrigerator until the spread is thick. Serve on top toast, pound cake, or with some Greek yogurt.
