Easy Peasy Eggs on the Go!

Are you in a hurry? With getting kids or spouses off to school and work, wouldn’t you like something easy peasy for breakfast?  This is it.

I was browsing a magazine and found an advertisement for “eggs.” Actually the site was The picture of the eggs was so pretty. Fluffy, inviting.

For years, eggs got a bad rap. Too much cholesterol. But let’s talk about what is good about eggs. They're high in protein, low in calories. They stay in the refrigerator for a long time without spoiling. And an egg can taste so different. 

Did any of you ever see the movie Runaway Bride? I loved that movie. I know, not realistic, but I’m a
sap for romantic movies. Good ones. What could be better than Julia Roberts at her best alongside the gorgeous Richard Gere? Anyway, toward the end of the movie, Richard accuses Julia of not knowing what it is she wants/likes. She  eats eggs that match the egg choice of the man she’s with. Ridiculous! By the end of the movie, she realizes she has to taste test to know which eggs she prefers. It’s a mystery. But she figures it out.

If you like scrambled eggs, try this recipe. It's scrambled eggs meets soufflé.

Mind you, they are hot, hot, hot out of the microwave. So give them time to cool!

Microwavable in less than 3 minutes!
All protein.
Per the advertisement: Think outside the cereal box.


Serving 1
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons shredded Cheddar or Parmesan cheese


Coat a 12-oz microwave-safe coffee mug (or use a bowl…which I liked better) with cooking spray. Add eggs and milk and beat until blended.

Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds. Stir. Microwave again until the eggs are almost set, about 30 seconds.

Top with cheese; season with salt and pepper.

Note: the recipe said to use the 12-oz mug. The eggs didn't look nearly as pretty and didn't rise to the top. And they were SUPER HOT!...which is why I prefer the bowl.

  1. These look great! You could even take the ingredients to the office and throw it together there. Perfect for families on the go.

    1. That's exactly right. You can do this at an office. :) So simple.

  2. Very clever recipe, Daryl/Avery. Peg's right -- wherever there's a microwave (office, hotel, break room), a fresh egg souffle is minutes away. I'm definitely going to try it!

    1. A fresh egg souffle. Sounds so elegant, doesn't it? Now, if only I could get Richard Gere to want to try one. LOL (Shh, don't tell my hubby.)

  3. Oh, this is one of my favorite ways to eat eggs! They're the perfect size and texture to put inside an egg sandwich "to go." Of course, I like mine with a splash (or four) of hot sauce!

  4. LOL! I used to make eggs like that in a mug. Eggs are so good. We eat a lot of them!


  5. I love it! Like magic. Thanks for this, Daryl. I am a huge fan of eggs and always looking for something new.
