Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Grease a large cup or mug with butter.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy whipping cream, salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture into the cup or mug (a maximum of two-thirds full, as the eggs, will gain volume while cooking).
  3. Microwave at maximum power for about 1 minute. Remove and stir, turning over the scrambled egg. Microwave for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until firm, yet moist. Set aside. Note: the eggs will keep cooking when removed from heat, so try not to overcook.
  4. Add the remaining butter to the eggs, stir, and let cool for a minute.
  5. Serve the scrambled eggs with tuna, bell pepper, and chives.

Tip

You can exclude the cream if you want to avoid dairy products.

    Microwave? Doesn't microwaves reduce nutrients in food?

    I ve just had one and is delicious. I love microwaves

    No, microwaves do not decrease nutritional values. Of course, over heating/over cooking with any heat source can decrease them.

    They may not affect nutritional part of the food but energetically microwaves are not a good thing. Got rid of mine ages ago and use a really good stick free frying pan and it makes the best scrambled eggs ever in about the same amount of time.

    What is in the ramekin? This is confusing. Are we supposed to add something or not?

    Yummy. And I like not having a pan and spatula to wash afterwards.

    I did not have any heavy cream - so I used sour cream instead and it came out yummy.

    We have not tested this recipe in the stove. If you don't have a microwave oven, you may be better off with a traditional stove top scrambled eggs recipe.
