Make scrambled eggs in the microwave in a minute and a half. So easy - and fast - you can make this even before you've had your cup of coffee.
2 tsp butter
2 eggs, lightly beaten
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Measure butter into a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl. Place in the microwave and cook on high power for 30 seconds - or until melted and hot. Remove bowl from microwave, gently swirl the butter to slightly coat sides of the bowl, then pour in the eggs.
Cook for 30 more seconds. Stir to break up the clumps that will have formed around the edges. Continue to cook at 10-second intervals, stirring well after each, until eggs are done the way you like them - about 30 to 45 seconds more, depending on the microwave.
Scrambled ham and eggs variation: Add ½ cup (125 mL) chopped ham to the eggs in the recipe above. After the first 30 seconds of cooking, stir egg mixture every 15 seconds for an additional 1 to 1 ½ min total. (Timing will depend on your microwave, so you'll have to be the judge of when they're done.)
