Coffee Cup Cheddar Chive Microwaved Eggs
"Easy and quick; literally 2-3 minutes - and they turn out great every time. I love to serve these on a piece of toast, english muffin or bagel for a quick on the go breakfast. A low fat montery jack or cheddar works great for this - just use your favorite. They are so easy and so quick"

In my 900 watt microwave powered at 30% for 30 seconds did nothing, at 40% for 30 seconds warmed up the mix but once on 50% for 30 seconds we started to cooking and another 30 seconds at 50% finished it off. I used fresh chives, and 2 medium eggs.... Read more
- 1 egg (extra-large or jumbo egg)
- 1/2 teaspoon butter (or margarine, softened)
- Dried chives (pinch)
- Seasoning (pinch of all purpose seasoning)
- 1 to 2 teaspoons grated cheese
- 1 tablespoon water (use a bit less water if using a smaller egg)
- Salt & pepper (pinch)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Egg ... Add the egg, butter, chives, salt, pepper water and seasoning to a coffee cup and use a fork to whisk the mixture very well, not just a quick whisk. Microwave on medium low heat (I use 30%) for 1 minute - remove and whisk again making sure to break up all the egg and whisk really well once again. Repeat on 30% for another minute - again remove and whisk well breaking up the egg. If you want to add cheese, now is the time. Return to the microwave and cook another 30-45 seconds on medium heat (40-50% power). The egg will double in size and be light and fluffy.
Serve ... They come out perfect and taste great as is. You can eat them right out of the cup; or top an english muffin, toast or bagel. I love to serve this with toast for a quick morning breakfast. Just cut your toast and add it right to the coffee cup. Breakfast on the go. This also wonderful in a tortilla. Warm the tortilla for a few seconds in the microwave, add the egg, and roll it up.
Note: This also works with egg beaters; but you won't get the light fluffy texture; but they still work. And use whatever cheese you prefer. I enjoy cheddar, swiss, gruyere, monterey jack or provolone. Goat or Feta are also really good. ENJOY!
