"We made these eggs in my food science class in college. I thought, "Eeeww...yuck!" when I read the recipe. When I tried them, I couldn't get enough of them. I was eating them every morning for a month till I finally wore myself out with them. They are best with fresh garden tomatoes, but those crunchy ones at the market in January will work too because you're cooking them. PLEASE READ THE COMPLETE RECIPE AND REVIEWS (for hints and tips) BEFORE PREPARING!!"

"Great recipe. First time I've ever tried eggs in a mircowave. The only change is that we added Old Bay Seasoning to our eggs because we like Old Bay in our eggs! Made for ZWT3."
"In my 900W microwave my eggs took 2 1/2 minutes which is what it took to cook the toast so all came together for a delicious and filling breakfast, thank you for the recipe loved the combination of the eggs with the tomatoes, cheese and onion though next time I will shred up a little basil and add as well, made for Name that Ingredients."
"Very yummy...doesn't look appealing but it tasted darn good! I used tinned tomato instead of chopped (I drained the juice) and that works good too!"
"This was delicious and so easy to make! I used 2 eggs, 1 tomato, and 2 tablespoons of onions and it took about 5 1/2 minutes on 50% power for it to fully cook. I stirred them with a fork every couple minutes so it would cook evenly. Simply perfect though. Loved how tender the tomatoes and onions were. I waited to put half of my cheese on top after so that it would only partially melt."
"This is very good. I think I added a little less tomatoes and onions to be on the cautious side, and that was a mistake. Next time, I'll make it just as Amy wrote. I nuked it for 3 min., and it needed a little more time. It didn't need the entire extra 3 min., but only a min. or so. I just watched it closely; stirred; took it out when it was right for me. It's a little liquidy due to the tomatoes, but that's not a problem. I might add fresh basil next time just to see how that tastes."
"These were very good indeed! I did have to cook them for two minutes longer which resulted in a 4.75 stars, but since I can't give that and the taste and simplicity were great...5 stars! Thanks to our beloved Amy for this recipe! Remembering Amy!"
"I made this for the Redneck Epicurean Cookathon in Amy's honor. Oh, Amy, we sure will miss you, girl! I added chopped andouille sausage and green onions and they were STILL great!"
"Not a bad idea/way to make eggs. It has the ease of scrambled eggs with the flexibility of omelettes. Admittedly, omelettes made the old-fashioned way taste better, but this sure is more convenient. I use mostly egg whites to keep the fat content down. I would recommend putting in pepperoni or other things to spice it up a bit. :)"
"I cooked 3 eggs instead of 6, timed them for about a little over 3 min. and they were done. They were great! I added Frank's red hot sauce to them and spiced the flavor up a bit, very good. Even though my heartburn during class wasn't from my spicy add-in! Great recipe to prepare for morning energy."
"We LOVE LOVE LOVE tomatoes in our eggs. Sometimes we don't even cook them, just chop and top with them. BUT this recipe followed to a "T" gets gobbled up in our house fast! I've never tried microwave method - I always use the range. Excellent recipe! Do try!"
"I saw Parsley's wonderful photo of this recipe and my garden tomatoes are going wild. Instead of cooking these in the microwave, I did cook them on top of the stove. Simple ingredients for a wonderful treat. Thanks for a great breakfast."
"This made a wonderful breakfast! Will definitely make again. Cooked on the stovetop, otherwise no changes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"I love eggs and these eggs are excellent. While I am sure the Microwave works well I made mine on the stove top. When plated I added garden fresh diced tomatoes and enjoyed. A great way to start the day. Thank you. "
"Wow! I loved these eggs, they were so delicious! But best of all they are GLUTEN FREE! Thank you for a yummy new breakfast. By the way.. I ate these 3 days in a row for breakfast so far...lol Thanks for the GREAT recipe Amy!"
"Yummy eggs! I used my micro wave, and they turned out beautifully! As my 6 year old does not like onions, I omitted them, but next time I will do this for myself and throw them in. I can understand the addiction LOL! This made for a super fast School day breakfast. Thanks Amy!!"
"Great combination! I made these on the stovetop instead of the microwave. I saved a little cheese to sprinkle on top. Thanx for some yummy eggs! I'll make them again."
" I do not have a micro wave oven but knew this would work in a pan - 5 minutes on medium high (6-7 on electric stove) covered and done perfectly. I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs, put the cheddar on top 2 minutes before the eggs were cooked, then sprinkled on the Onion & tomatoes (l like them raw) and wow - lovely brunch Thanks Redneck Epicurean for a delicious Sunday Brunch"
