Microwave "omelette" with Glenballyeamon free range eggs

Serves 1

We hear so much about the importance of breakfast and more specifically taking protein for the first meal of the day. However, making a hearty meal first thing in the morning can be a real chore, especially with all the other things we have to do at the beginning of the day. If you're not keen on preparing ahead and making the egg "muffins" I posted about a few weeks ago then this is a perfect alternative. Not only is it super quick to make and cook but all the equipment can go straight in the dishwasher. There's no doubt that an omelette made the traditional way in a pan is far superior but this certainly does the job!


1 Glenballyeamon free range egg

Splash of milk

Knob of butter

Seasoning to taste

Your choice of fillings (ham, fried onion, scallion or mushrooms, grated cheese) 


Whisk the egg, milk and butter in a microwaveable mug or small bowl. Add your filling if you are using one.  

Microwave the mixture for 1 minute. If you're doing this for the first time check it halfway to be sure you're not overcooking it but don't stir it as you'll lose the shape and it'll be scrambled egg instead of a mini omelette. 

Serve the omelette to your liking: perhaps with toast, slow roasted tomatoes, watercress or maybe just straight out of the mug! There's no excuse not to start your day with protein now. 😉
