An Easy and Quick Breakfast

Sometimes I want scrambled eggs, but don't feel like taking the time to do it 'right'. But not to worry: I have found a quick and simple way to get similar results without having to heat up a pan and then stand there and stir.

The players: 2 eggs, diced onion, salt, pepper and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. The dish is also important here. This is a heat-safe 2 cup bowl. The bowl is sprayed lightly with cooking spray so that the egg will not stick to the bowl.

Whisk the eggs with a nip of water. Add the salt, pepper and onion, stirring well.

After about 35 seconds in the microwave, I stir lightly and add some cheese. This goes back in the microwave for another 35 seconds. Please note that microwaves vary and that your eggs may take more or less time accordingly. If the eggs have a slightly grey tint to them, you have overcooked them.

While the eggs are one mass rather than the bits that one normally expects in scrambled eggs, the texture and taste are the same.

On a whim I decided to top my eggs with some leftover salsa. Yummy!
