Yum! This was delicious and satisfying! I cut it down to a single serving, using 2 eggs, 1 t. butter, 2 t. milk (I used evaporated milk) and used a wedge of Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Cheese. Following the cooking directions, total time cooked in microwave was just over a minute. Served with a little salsa on top and the green onions made it extra tasty. Thanks so much for's a keeper!

I, too, was hesitant to microwave eggs, but these were far easier and fluffier than I thought. Easier clean-up than stove eggs as well. I served them on a slice of toasted rye bread to extend the NYC theme! (Used 2 eggs, for 2 people - it was plenty; my photo is what it looks like when you don't mix in the cream cheese!)

I was skeptical that microwaved eggs could actually come out fluffy and creamy, but these really do! I just wanted a single serving, so I used 2 eggs, half a tablespoon of butter, and a generous splash of milk (plus the rest of the ingredients to taste). Simple, quick and tasty, exactly what I need in the morning! Thanks for posting! Made for CQ 2016 NYC for Team Iota Eta Pi
