    I always get the time wrong as I put them on for far far too long! my eggs turn out to be a really sad looking omlette and taste like rubber.

    This is exactly how we have doing our scrambled eggs for years...highly recommended and easy to get right after practice...remember not all microwaves are the same. You can also do single servings or a dish for everyone.

    My husband taught me how to do this a few years ago. I'm absolutely useless at doing them in the frying pan so he showed me the microwave version. Now I get them perfect every time. Such a quick and easy breakfast if your in a rush in the morning. Most of the time we just do one egg in a cup with salt pepper and a little milk, - same idea just smaller version. Takes about two lots of 30sec depending on your microwave but you can grab your cup and eat it on the run which is great when your running late. :-)

    Imn my single days . I had women hanging off me like grapes of vines (YEAH RIGHT!) my most succesfully pick up line (worked 2) was how do you like your eggs in the morning? in the other 19,853 cases they all replied "unfertilised " and walk off :(

    You cannot beat scrambled eggs for a quick, nourishing and totally satisfying meal or snack. Best served with slivers of smoked salmon, chunks of avocado and a liberal sprinkling of black pepper.

    Love the idea of using the coffee cup in the microwave! Less mess and fuss is good.
  • Macstar says
    Try with a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce .. awesome!
  • Looks pretty inviting, just needs a pinch of salt, pepper.

    What did the chicken say when she saw the scrambled eggs?
    There go my crazy mixed up kids.

    I always use my memory and get it wrong. Too watery or too rubbery. Cheers
