    Serves: 1 

    • 2 eggs
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper
    • 2 teaspoons butter
    • 250ml milk
    • 1 handful grated cheese of choice
    • 1/4 onion, diced
    • cooked ham, chopped

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:18min 

    1. Break 2 eggs into a microwaveable bowl, add salt and pepper and mix with a fork. Add the butter and milk and mix again with the fork. Add the cheese, onion and ham and stir into the egg mixture.
    2. Put bowl into the microwave on full power for 2 minutes, stir place into microwave for a further 2 minutes.
    3. Repeat the stirring and heating for 8 minutes in total - by this time the eggs should be taking their scrambled shape.
    4. Towards the end it may be worth draining some of the excess juices from the bowl, this should make the mixture slightly harder.
    5. Once cooked serve on toast and season with ketchup if wanted. Job done!!

    Made it healthier. This is just as nice without the butter!  -  12 Apr 2010


    I found the cooking time interesting. In a 1200 watt microwave I cook 4 eggs in around 5 minutes maximum. A tip to keep them firm is to use a spoon to lift the mixture from the outside of the dish  -  08 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
