Sunday Morning 3 Minute Power Omelette in a Cup Breakfast




So woke up this  morning ready to start on phase 2 of the Portable Mini Arduino  EEG monitor instructable, and decided I needed a good breakfast to get me going. Since I was going to make my super easy, no mess,high energy, nutritious, Power omelete breakfast, I said to myself, "why not share it with you guys?".
And here it is:

Step 1: Ingredients.


1 Egg
1 Slice of ham, smoked turkey, deviled ham , Chicken liver pate, or whatever you have available.
1 slice of american Cheese, mozzarella, or any cheese you like
dab of kethup (optional)
dab of mustard (optional)

small microwaveable (pyrex) container.

Step 2: Preparation.

Once you've found the ingredients, prep time is less than a minute.

1.- Get the slice of ham (or whatever you ar using) and tear it into small chunks an put it in the container.
2.- Do the same with the cheese. (I used a slice of american cheese and some mozzarella)
3.- Put in a dab of ketchup and mustard ( optional but it adds zest)
4.- Crack the egg open and put it on-top of all the ingredients
5.- Add salt and pepper to your liking
6.- Optionally, add less than a teaspoon of milk .

Place in microwave and cook for one minute.
Keep an eye on the omelette while it's cooking, if you've ever cooked an egg in the microwave, you know the yolk can pop and make a big mess!! I found that the milk sometimes helps prevent this, but if you have one of those microwave covers, use it!!

Step 3: Enjoy!!

Remove from microwave, allow to cool for a second, and enjoy your breakfast! I accompany it with a slice of toast and a cup of coffe.

    Delicious! Easy to make and clean up! Well done! I prefer a cooked yolk so next time I will scramble the egg before adding on top and I added an extra 20 seconds to the cook time. BRAVO!

    Glad you liked it. I don't think there's an easier, more fulfilling breakfast. No mess, practically no cleanup, quick to make and the varieties are endless! if you like your yolk hard, you can always stop, the microwave after a minute and poke the yolk with a fork and microwave for another 20 or 30 seconds. Try it with deviled ham, and chicken liver pate, looks a little yucky, but tastes delicious!

    Just forked the yolk before cooking for 80 sec... Absolutely perfect. Thank you again!!! This should be an American staple; along with oatmeal and egg-in-a-hole. Great breakfast/even better as a night-time snack.
