Microwavable Dishes That Save Time

Life can be super busy. As we focus on trying to get through the day, the last thing we want to do is worry about planning meals or what to eat. When you think of microwave meals, you probably think of a quick fix. Certainly nothing fancy, right? Well, that’s about to change thanks to these delectable microwavable dishes.

Start with a quick breakfast sandwich meal prep that will last up to a month in the freezer. Add a couple of scrambled eggs to a coffee mug with a drop of milk and cook for a few minutes. From there, microwave some bacon, sausage, and ham patties. Assemble the English muffin sandwiches by slicing the egg, add the meat, and top with cheese. Wrap in a paper towel and then parchment paper for a quick grab and go. 

Homemade mac and cheese and lasagna are other make-ahead meals that cook quickly in the microwave in under 10 minutes. Both make for delicious hot meals. 

Dessert lovers rejoice! You have options, too. Try a delicious, sweet treat such as a chocolate lava cake, a Rice Krispie treat, or even a personal cheesecake. Prep time is minimal, and the cooking time is even shorter.

Microwaves tend to get a bad rep due to the way they cook certain foods. That isn’t always warranted, though. With a little know-how and perseverance, you can have your cake and eat it, too — often in just a few short minutes.
