Yes, you could have boring old cereal but by mid-morning you'll be snacking and that's a bad idea if you're trying to eat a healthy balanced diet.
So, why not ditch the sugar loaded cereals and start the day with scrambled eggs? It's healthy, delicious and it's so easy you don't have to have the cooking skills of Nigella Lawson to make this dish. Although Nigella recipe for Spicy Scrambled Eggs is delicious and almost as easy to make.
You can of course cook scrambled eggs on the stove in a pan but using the microwave gets the job done quickly and is probably the only option if say, you're at work and don't have access to a full kitchen.
You'll need a microwaveable dish or bowl and a fork. You also need three or four eggs, a splash of milk and a tablespoon of butter. A pinch of seasoning (salt and pepper or season-all).
Put all the ingredients together into the bowl and beat with the fork until the eggs are well mixed with the other ingredients.
Place the bowl in the microwave and select full power (850watt model) and cook for a minute before taking the eggs out and stirring them. Put them back and give them another minute. Stir the mix again and give them only 30 seconds. Repeat the 30 second cooking interval until your eggs are cooked to your preference.
You can experiment with your own timings but this works well as a general rule. The thing to keep in mind is that it's easy to overcook scrambled eggs in a microwave which is why you should use shorter time periods towards the end.
It should take less than five minutes. It's easy, it's quick and there's very little clearing up to do.
Enjoy your scrambled eggs.
