Microwave-friendly recipes

By jhobson 09 Feb 2019

There comes a time when you want a meal (or snack) at a not so social hour. We have put together a collection of recipes that are microwave-friendly and extremely easy to make.

'Fried' Rice

Who said you couldn’t make fried rice with a microwave? Just check out this recipe!

Loaded Potatoes

Making a jacket potato in the microwave is so simple and quick to do – much better than waiting for it to cook in the oven. So it’s a great idea for a late night meal after the food court has closed, and potatoes are a vegetable – so it’s healthy, right?

Chicken Quesadilla

Who doesn’t love Mexican food? This quesadilla only takes 4 minutes to make - quicker than speedy Gonzales.

Check it out here!

BBQ Chicken Nachos

Continuing with the much loved Mexican theme, here is a recipe for some amazing nacho. Who knew you could do them in the microwave!

Crispy Microwave Bacon

This method of cooking bacon in the microwave doesn’t involve the usual bacon getting stuck to the paper towels. If you like your bacon crispy, try heating the slices up on top of an overturned bowl (microwavable of course!). Apparently the extra fat drips down the sides of the bowl, leaving you with extra crispy bacon.

Microwave Brownies

…and now onto the sweet stuff! Have a go at making these chocolate-y microwave brownies!

Easy Apple Crumble

Why not have a go at this winter favourite? Who knew you could make apple crumble in a microwave? Game changer.

Try out the recipe here!

Maybe add some custard too…it only takes two minutes!

Microwave Mug Cake

We can’t miss out the infamous mug cake. It’s so quick and easy to do – perfect for a late night snack! Just follow the recipe here and feel free to add chocolate chips or fruit (if you want to make it healthy).
