Ingredients

  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp butter

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Grease a large cup or mug with soft butter. Whisk together eggs and heavy whipping cream. Fill cup to a maximum of two-thirds, as the eggs will gain volume while cooking.
  2. Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper or cayenne.
  3. Microwave at maximum power for 1-2 minutes (700 watts). Stir and microwave for another minute. Keep in mind that eggs keep cooking after being removed from the heat, so don't overdo it.
  4. Remove and add some butter. Let cool for a minute.

Tip!

Serve scrambled eggs with finely chopped chives, tuna and slices of bell pepper to enjoy a nutritious and quick meal!

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

    Microwave? Doesn't microwaves reduce nutrients in food?

    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?

    From the Tip! Section directly under the recipe - "Serve scrambled eggs with finely chopped chives, tuna and slices of bell pepper to enjoy a nutritious and quick meal!"
