Microwave Recipes

Here are some recipes you can try in the microwave with your bean pot! These can also work in a soup tureen or casserole dish.

Pork Chops
Put 4 pork chops (can be right from the freezer), 1 cup of water, and cover in Merlot Sauce (I used the one from Tastefully Simple) into the bean pot.  Microwave for 30 minutes.  **If you do not have merlot sauce, you can also use BBQ sauce.
Egg casserole in 10 minutes
12 large eggs
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup milk
6-8 slices of cooked bacon or crumbled sausage
salt/pepper to taste

put it all the in beanpot and scramble. Place lid on beanpot and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Take out of microwave and re-scramble. Replace in microwave and cook on high for 5-6 minutes on high!
Enjoy! You’ll never oven bake an egg casserole again!


Bean Pot Taco Soup

1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
1 Can of Corn
1 Can of Black Beans
1 Can of Pinto Beans
1 packet of Ranch Dressing Mix
1 packet of Taco Seasoning
Mix together in beanpot. Microwave for 25 min or until hot – stirring occasionally. Top with sour cream & cheese  before serving then add corn chips!
Crumble ground beef, microwave 5 minutes, re-crumble, and microwave another 5 minutes & then drain the
grease. Add hot water & ingredients according to box. Stir & microwave 25 minutes or bake in oven for 45
minutes @ 350 degrees. NO stirring required!!!! You can be baking/cooking dinner while getting ready for

      I don’t know about a wedding cake, but I do use a similar recipe for my son who has allergies to eggs and milk. Any can of cola will work in a pinch. But beware, this type of cake is very crumbly. But they taste great!
