Microwave Dinners

After my review post about the One Touch Microwave by Sage, I was after suggestions of meals that would feed the family and that used the Microwave as more than just a tool for reheating the food. Basically I wanted to be the sort of person who would be able to rustle up a brilliant meal in minutes and have people be amazed that I did it by using the Microwave. I called my sister up, she too uses her Microwave as something to quickly heat up leftovers, or to make quick things in so we got to work thinking up some ideas of some meals that we could cook using the Microwave, other than the Chicken and Vegetables I made.

Microwaved Chicken and Vegetables

And this is what we came up with.

Baked Potatoes.

One Pot Pasta.

Poached Eggs.

Quick Casserole.

Quick Quiche.

Scrambled Eggs and Bacon.


Prawn Curry.

Salmon Salad.


French Toast.



Spaghetti Bolognaise.


My plan is that each week, I'll make one of the dishes and report back if it's been a success or not and give a basic recipe too. If you have any other ideas, let me know and I'll add them to the list!
