A couple of things. First, it’s 4:15 in the afternoon, Sam is asleep in the family room and I’m doing laundry. Second, this is really as boring as it sounds but there’s nothing else to do because it’s 48° outside and really cloudy. Naps and wet socks are as productive as we’re going to get.
- Pam no-stick cooking spray
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- 1 tablespoon real or phony bacon bits (optional)
- 1 tablespoon salsa (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Spray the inside of large microwave-safe mug with Pam. (I actually use a 16-oz. soup mug.) Crack the eggs into the mug and beat with a fork. Mix in the salt and pepper, 1 tablespoon of the shredded cheese and optional bacon things. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir; microwave 40 to 60 seconds more or until well set. Sprinkle the rest of the cheedar cheese on top and start eating!
Incidentally, feel free to add or replace ingredients based upon whatever’s hanging around in your fridge, such as throwing in a few diced green onions or using leftover ham instead of bacon bits. (Please don’t try to substitute anything for the eggs, however. Without them you’ll just end up with a mug of crud.)
Thank you for reading this and bon apetit.
