Best Microwave Recipes
- Microwave Sweet and Sour Meatballs
I love this quick and easy recipe. Be sure the meatballs are thawed before you start. Because they're quite dense, they take a while to heat up in the microwave. And keep cooking until the sauce thickens.
- Microwave Mexican Cube Steak
This four ingredient recipe is super easy. The meat is tender and flavorful. Serve it with mashed potatoes to soak up the sauce.
- Microwave Meatloaf
This recipe is a variation of My Mom's Meatloaf, a very popular recipe. It's homey and old-fashioned and comforting.
- Microwave Beef Stroganoff
I love all stroganoff. But when I don't want to wait for my favorite version cooked in the crockpot, this one will do just fine.
- Microwave Salmon with Orange Sauce
The microwave is a wonderful way to cook fish to perfection. And this orange sauce is the perfect complement to the rich salmon. Yum.
- Microwave Scrambled Eggs
If your scrambled eggs on the stovetop come out tough or dry, try this super easy method. The eggs are moist and perfectly cooked. Guaranteed.
- Microwave Vegetable Pie
This crustless quiche is very easy and very delicious. And very good for you too!
- Enchilada Microwave Chicken Pie
I'm always surprised when this recipe works. But why shouldn't it? A quiche filling can cook quite happily in the microwave, given the right cooking and standing times.
- Microwave Mexican Chili
This chili has the best flavor; you'd never know that it only took 25 minutes to cook!
- Spinach and Rice Fish Roll-Ups
I developed a version of this recipe for Pillsbury in the 1980s by combining a filling that was in a stuffed pasta recipe with fish. It's pretty and healthy and tastes great too.
- Spaghetti in the Microwave
I love cooking spaghetti in unusual ways, especially right in the pot with the sauce. See also Skillet Spaghetti and Completely Crockpot Spaghetti and Meatballs. But I think this is the easiest way of all!
- Vegetable Chicken Casserole
This simple and healthy recipe is fun to make. Oh, and the cheese is right there in the ingredient list.
- Pepper Steak
This fresh and flavorful dish is super easy. Serve it with hot cooked rice for a balanced meal.
- Microwave Sweet and Sour Chicken
I love anything sweet and sour, but chicken is my favorite. The chicken stays moist and tender when cooked in the microwave oven. The orange marmalade is a special touch.
- Microwave Beef and Veggies
Frozen vegetables are the secret ingredient in this super fast main dish.
- Microwave Shrimp Scampi
Well, there's really nothing I can say about this recipe. Except that I'm making it again this week.
- Microwave Salmon Pie
Everyone looks twice when you pull a pie out of the microwave oven. It's so easy, and so good!
