As written it is a bit bland and rubbery. I love my eggs in the microwave so I say add a bit more butter. Also add a bit of cream. Milk would be ok but cream (or half and half) is best (a teaspoon per egg or so). Parmesan is fantastic to add to eggs, just wait until they are almost done. Stir every minute or more. Salt and pepper at the absolute end. Great base recipe!

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.
