The microwave oven is much more than just a way to reheat leftovers. This versatile machine can cook your breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert, plus several varieties of snacks to meet your needs. Do you have a busy morning and no time to cook? Try Coffee Cup Quiche or the Southwest flavors of Chilaquiles and enjoy a protein-filled breakfast in less than 5 minutes. Too tired after work to make a fussy dinner? 10-minute Enchiladas are an easy and hearty meal to make for the whole family. Or maybe you want something fancier? Pair the Buttered Shrimp with Mushroom Risotto and Steamed Broccoli for a fully-rounded dinner that’s sure to impress. Ready for a late-night snack? Whip up a Cookies and Cream Mug Cake all for yourself—it’s even better topped off with the Single-Serve Hot Fudge.
