How to microwave scrambled eggs

With "Egg Man" Ian Thomas

Time: 2 mins
Serves: 1
Cost per serve: 70 cents


2 Eggs
2 Tbsp of Trim milk
Pinch salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper


Beat 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons low-fat milk in a microwave-safe coffee cup or bowl. Beat well so yolks and white are well mixed. Cover with plastic wrap (NB leave a small gap as a steam vent).

Microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH for 45 seconds, stir and cook for another 45 - 75 seconds, stirring several times during cooking. (Note: Cooking time will vary dependent on your microwave wattage).

Cover and let stand for 30 seconds to 1 minute before serving. The eggs will look slightly moist, but will finish cooking upon standing.

While eggs are cooking, toast your bread.

Add herbs, cheese, chilli sauce or cream cheese, serve on toast or eat directly from the cup

Serve immediately. Enjoy.
