Teacup Eggs

These cute little teacup omelets take
 just about 2 minutes to make.
Assemble each teacup egg anyway you like
 it and pop it into the microwave.
A very fast breakfast, perfect little lunch or 
even dinner.
 Today I used leftover salsa and cheddar-jack
cheese and a dash of hot sauce.
  Everyone can make their own eggs with
 their favorite ingredients. This is a good time
to use that little bit of leftover vegetables
from dinner; like spinach, mushrooms,
 asparagus, broccoli, onions, peppers, along with
 fresh tomatoes, scallions, basil, and any cheese;
 cheddar, Swiss, mozzarella, feta, anything!
 I can even make these on our road 
trips in the van's microwave.
Teacup Eggs
(for each teacup)
2 eggs
2 T milk
salt & pepper
2 T cheese
2 T favorite fillings
Rub the inside of the teacup with oil
or butter. Crack the eggs into the cup
and whisk with a fork. Mix in the milk.
Stir in your choice of toppings: 
cheese, leftover cooked vegetables, 
spinach, mushrooms, peppers,
scallions, etc. No need to measure 
just don't fill more than 3/4 full. 
Micro for 45 seconds, 
remove and stir gently then return to
 microwave for another 30-45 seconds,
more or less until puffed and no longer
runny. Remove carefully.
tip: You can also use ramekins or bake a large
batch of them on a baking sheet
in a 350º oven for about 15-20 minutes,
until golden and puffed.

  1. I do not always have an electric hook up when camping but I will have to remember this when I do have use of the microwave - one problem with the camper microwave is that the time varied so much more than the one I have at home - do you cover the cup when you make this?

  2. Yummy and easy, how I like it!
    Love it on the cups for breakfast!
    Thanks for sharing and have a great Father's Day week.

  3. Wow...sounds delicious and so easy to make! BTW...This summer I'm trying most of your recipes. So far I made the Roasted Parmesan Crusted Salmon. Hubby loved it! Today I'm making the Apricot Chicken!
