Microwave Scrambled Eggs

I eat an egg or two lots of mornings for breakfast.  Scrambled or poached.  Or even hard-boiled.  When pressed for time, I've been known to "poach" an egg by putting it in a small ramekin and nuking it for 45 seconds or so.  Gives you a nice firm white and a runny yolk.

But I'd never nuked scrambled eggs.  Ran across one of those Incredible Edible Egg advertisements in a magazine that said you could make scrambled eggs in the microwave in a coffee cup.  I didn't believe it...until I tried it.  Great results.  Try it yourself and see if you don't agree.  It's a quick (and portable) way to start your day with some good-quality protein.

Microwave Scrambled Eggs
Makes one serving.

Coat a microwave-safe mug with cooking spray.

Add two eggs and 2 tablespoons milk and beat until blended.

Microwave on high for 45 seconds.  Stir.

Microwave until eggs are almost set, 30-45 seconds longer.

Season with salt and pepper.  Top with 2 tablespoons grated cheese if you'd like.
