I came across this recipe over 10 years ago when I first learned I was diabetic. It's quick and tasty.


  1. In 2 1/2-cup bowl, melt butter in microwave on high for 30 seconds.
  2. Whisk eggs with remaining ingredients in a separate bowl until well blended.
  3. Add egg mixture to the melted butter. Cover with vented plastic wrap.
  4. Cook on medium-high for 2 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.
  5. Cook on low 30 seconds.
  6. Let stand 1 minute before serving.

This was awesome! I skipped the green onions and the parmesan (didn't have any), and added 3 teaspoons of coconut creamer to add creaminess. Microwave time, for us, was 3 1-minute intervals at 70% power, stopping to stir between each round.

I was running late this morning but was still able to make this in minutes so we had a hot breakfast before heading out the door. I didn't add the onions as my son is not a fan and I forgot the parsley. This cooked up nicely and we both enjoyed them.

Loved the quickness and easiness of this recipe! Wonderful for a weekday morning breakfast! I'd definitely cut down on the chopped green onion. It was a little over whelming for the rest of the taste in the recipe. Made for I Recommend. Thanks for sharing!
