To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Anytime Freezer Tray Set


  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise or sour cream, at room temperature
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a large bowl, vigorously beat the eggs with the mayo or sour cream. The mixture should be smooth and homogenous.
  2. Coat the cups of a ½ cup Anytime Tray with nonstick cooking spray and divide egg mixture evenly. Take care to wipe up any excess egg on the surface of the tray.
  3. Top egg cups with desired mix-ins, pressing gently to submerge. Carefully transfer Anytime Tray to the microwave.
  4. Cook in the microwave at Power Level 5tooltip for 5-6 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked in the center. For heartier mix-ins, you may have to add an additional 1-2 minutes of cook time. Egg bites may shrink slightly in the cups.
  5. Allow egg bites to cool (about 5 minutes) before enjoying. These egg bites will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Herbs & Goat Cheese: Add softened goat cheese and fresh herbs, such as chives, parsley, basil or thyme.
  • Bacon & Gruyere: Add cooked and crumbled bacon, and shredded gruyere cheese.
  • Veggie: Add sliced cherry tomatoes, diced roasted bell peppers, sliced black olives, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
  • Broccoli Cheddar: Add shredded broccoli florets, cheddar cheese, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
  • Ham and cheese: Add diced Canadian bacon and shredded cheddar cheese.

Recipe notes

  • When microwaving food in the Anytime trays, be sure to portion the cups of the trays equally. An uneven filling will result in uneven cooking.
  • Take care to wipe up any excess egg on the surface of the tray.
  • Parent trick: 
    Switch up the mix-in ingredients to each compartment for a variety of flavors.
  • Why do the ingredients need to be at room temperature? When at room temperature, eggs, butter, and other dairy ingredients form an emulsion that traps air inside of the egg bites. That trapped air results in a light and fluffy egg texture when cooked in the microwave..
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
