I don't know why, but this is one of those recipes that is just fun to watch happen for some reason. I've been restricting myself to only using the microwave for leftovers, but I had to try this out. I remember buying one of those microwave omelette makers and being mesmerized by what was going on. It's like being a kid with an easy baked oven. There's nothing extremely special about this, but it's quick and easy to do before work which I like for when I'm on the go.

You have to play around with the cooking times a little bit, depending on your microwave's power and the size of the mug that you're using. Too much, and it all overflows from the first cook. Adding more toppings and doing a second cook is really important though. Otherwise the eggs don't always cook through the right way.

Super simple way to spice up your breakfast. I've tried the California scramble and the Denver. I had to watch closely because the eggs ended up overflowing in the wave and making a mess. Keep a close eye on it!

quick and easy eggs, perfect if you're trying to feed all the kids in no time - but these won't get confused for anything fancy.

I used to make eggs like this when I was a teen. And I still do when I'm in a rush. I love the fajita one. That was a great one
