Course Breakfast


  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 pinch salt & pepper to taste


  • Beat 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons low-fat milk in a microwave-safe coffee cup or bowl.
  • Beat well so yolks and white are well mixed.
  • Cover with plastic wrap (NB leave a small gap as a steam vent).
  • Microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH for 45 seconds, stir and cook for another 45 – 75 seconds, stirring several times during cooking.
    (Note: Cooking time will vary dependent on your microwave wattage).
  • Cover and let stand for 30 seconds to 1 minute before serving.
  • The eggs will look slightly moist, but will finish cooking upon standing.
  • While eggs are cooking, pop some bread in the toaster.
  • Serve immediately


NOTE: The NZ Food Safety Authority (Aug 2008) recommends that when using household cling film for microwave cooking, don’t let it touch the food as it melts at a low temperature and can potentially release chemicals if it drops onto the food. Leaving a corner of the dish uncovered to let steam escape reduces the risk of the film splitting and blowing off and settling on the food.
