  1. Crack the egg into a microwave-safe cereal bowl and whisk in the milk. Season with salt and pepper. Cook in the microwave on 100% power for 1 to 2 minutes, or until cooked through.
  2. While the egg is cooking, toast the bread. Use a spoon to remove the cooked egg from the bowl and set it on one piece of toast. Top with a slice of cheese and the other piece of toast. Cook in the microwave until cheese is melted, about 15 seconds.

Oh, the incredible edible egg! Don't be afraid to microwave the egg, it really is good. If you spray the bowl with some Pam first, the egg will slide right out and you won't have that cooked on egg that is impossible to scrub off your dishes. I only microwave one egg at about 45 seconds and then top it with cheese and microwave it for the last 15 seconds. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and viola. This is so versatile too. You can add bacon, sausage, ham, tomato, etc. And you can use any bread you have (sandwich, hamburger roll, English muffin, croissant, etc.) and it turns out great every time! So easy a man, I mean the kids could do it!

I had very little time this morning to make breakfast for the kids. This worked out great as my oldest boy could do this pretty much by the directions. I had one of those microwave omelette pans (which asks for two eggs, wisked, to be poured on each side). All he did was add salt and pepper to each wisked egg and cook it in the microwave omelette pan. Then, he cut it in half to make two sandwiches. Good for them, GREAT for me. NOTE: You might want to keep in mind that you may need to spritz your microwaveable container with non-stick spray before you cook your egg. Having made egg in the microwave before, they do tend to want to stick pretty bad if you don't.


Sort of like a home-made Egg McMuffin. It's pretty bland, though. It will be better with some bacon or ham on it. I would recommend trying to toast this in the oven since the bottom piece of toast got soggy while microwaving to melt the cheese. Good base since it was so simple. I'll make it again, but with my own adjustments.
