This is a 3-4 minute omelet which is made in the microwave. Delicious and versatile, it can be made with what you have on hand and what your family prefers. If you like things spiced up you can use hot peppers and hot salsa for a garnish. Good way to get vegetables into the breakfast meal.

I do this in a micro-safe coffee mug, and eat it straight from there. I've added leftover meats, veg's, and cheese. Perfect breakfast or midnight snack! I use butter flavored spray for a little extra flavor without extra calories.
Easy to make, use anything in the fridge, I used onion, black olives, mozz cheese, and tomatoes. With toast was delish.
