Cheesy Microwave Eggs

Cheesy Microwave Eggs

Dead simple. If you like cheese omelets, you'll like this. No pan to wash either! Just a bowl, a spoon and a whisk.

Ingredients:
Cooking Spray
3 eggs or Egg Beaters
A splash of milk
A couple slices of cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste

Spray a microwave safe bowl with cooking spray. Whisk together the eggs and milk with a fork or a whisk. The longer you Whisk, the fluffier the eggs will turn out.
Add the cheese.
Put the egg mixture into the microwave and cook for about 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The time is going to depend on the power of your microwave and the amount of eggs used. Egg Beaters take less time then whole eggs.
2 minutes and 30 seconds is the magic number for my microwave and 3 lg. eggs. Egg Beater cheezy eggs take about 2 minutes.
You want your eggs almost done at the end of the cooking time. They cook for a little while even after you take them out of the microwave. Do not overcook! Nothing worse then dry eggs!
After you remove the eggs from the microwave, stir in seasoning. I do not like to add the salt before cooking because I think they toughen the eggs.
Allow to cool for about a minute because as mentioned, they still cook after removing from microwave.
Mmmm. Cheesy, salty, eggy goodness.
Enjoy!
