Breakfast in a Mug

Serves 1

You will need to adjust the timing to your microwave oven's specifics. Unlike most microwaved eggs, these come out fluffy and light.

2-3 teaspoons butter

1 tablespoon milk or water

1 or 2 eggs

Salt, pepper to taste

Shredded cheese

1. Place the butter in a 12-ounce microwave-safe mug or small bowl. Microwave on high for 20 to 40 seconds, or until melted and sizzling.

2. Add the milk, eggs, salt and pepper, and whisk with a fork. If you're using one egg, microwave it on high about 35-45 seconds, or until it just begins to set, stopping halfway through to give it a quick stir with a fork. For two eggs, it may take 1 to 2 minutes.

3. Remove eggs from microwave when they are still soft and moist in the center. Sprinkle with cheese and let sit for a minute or two to set.
