A fast, simple breakfast that tastes like your diner favorite

Love an omelet but don’t have time to make one? Try this easy microwave version that’s done in a flash.

Serves 1.


  • 2 eggs 
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat or nonfat milk
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 dash pepper
  • ¼ cup finely chopped vegetables (any type) 
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese (any type)


  1. Lightly grease the inside of a 12-ounce microwave-safe mug.
  2. Add the eggs, milk, salt and pepper to the mug and stir well. Mix in the vegetables and cheese.
  3. Microwave for 45 seconds. Stir. Return to the microwave and cook until the mixture has puffed and set, 60 to 90 seconds. The omelet may look wet on the top but will dry as it cools.
