Breakfast In A Mug

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded cheese
It's incredibly easy to make scrambled eggs in the microwave. If it's simply eggs and cheese, it turns out just as good as pan-scrambled eggs. (If you're adding vegetables or meat, it's best to still use your stove top.) The only change I might make to this recipe as it was submitted would be to stir the cheese into the scrambled eggs in the last step for a bit more even cheese distribution. Word of warning: If eating directly out of the mug, expect the eggs to be very hot in the middle. Bottom Line: This recipe works, tastes great and I liked it a lot.

This was a fun and easy recipe - I also added black beans, salsa, and cumin to the mix for a Mexican flair. YUMMY!! I needed an extra minute in the microwave. Served with whole grain toast. Very delish and filling :)

I've done this with a quick spray of Pam in the mug, drop it on an English muffin and you have a counterfeit Egg McMuffin.
