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.
