Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

Acclaimed chef Jose Andres is not the type to turn up his nose at an easy meal. He’s also someone who does not mind using the microwave to put something together really quickly.

Like many husbands, he is tasked with making sure that the kitchen stays clean when it comes time to have a snack. That’s why this hack is such an important one for all of us to enjoy.

Who doesn’t love to have a snack without laying waste to the entire kitchen in the process? As it turns out, it is even easier to make an omelette than you may have realized.

There’s no need to turn the oven on and make a big old mess. When Andres is ready to get started, he takes a spoonful of mayo and whisks it with an egg until the mixture becomes creamy.

He is sure to use a microwave-safe dish for the next part, when he drizzles olive oil onto the bottom and then adds the previous mixture. Before long, he has a delicious mayo/egg omelette to enjoy. The process only takes about 2 minutes and 15 seconds. It’s really that easy ans we are beyond intrigued.

We can all use a safe and efficient snacking option during those nights when the kitchen has been closed. The last thing that anyone wants to do is clean up a whole kitchen again.

Andres has some flourishes that can be added to the dish, too. For example, those of us who cook eggs at home on a regular basis are well aware of the joys of adding various leftovers. This is an endeavor that he is happily supporting. Whether you are looking to add meats or cheeses, there are no shortage of options. It’s a simple meal, even if you are an absolute novice in the kitchen.

“If you’ve never cooked before in your life, you’re going to be successful,” he says. “And if you don’t want to make a mess in your kitchen, it really works,” Andres continues. Watch the video below:
