Easy Microwave Recipes

From snacks to entrees, these wonderfully simple and budget-friendly microwave recipes will have you wondering why you didn’t jump on the microwave recipe bandwagon sooner. Usually when we think of microwaves, we attach them to re-heating food or heating ready-made frozen meals. Well, what if we told you that you can make one-of-a-kind recipes right in your microwave?

Microwave recipes are perfect if you’re on the go and don’t have much time, or if you simply don’t want to worry about having to clean your stovetop along with pots or pans. Not only that, but microwave recipes are also as dorm-friendly as recipes can get for those in college! Many of us rarely consider microwaves a kitchen appliance in which recipes are made from scratch, which is why we had to share a few of our favorite attainable yet delicious recipes that will save you an incredible amount of time.
