  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBS milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped ham
  • 2-3 TBS cheese
  • 1-2 TBS chopped onion
  • Optional: 1-2 TBS green pepper
  • Optional: 2 TBS scallions sliced thin
  • Variation ideas include crumbled crispy bacon chopped cooked sausage, cooked spinach that has been squeezed dry, minced jalapenos,


  • In a small bowl, scramble 2 eggs with a fork.
  • Whisk in 1 TBS of milk.
  • Add in your chosen ingredients like chopped ham, onion and cheese and mix well.
  • Season with black pepper and if you wish a pinch of salt (however I the ham and cheese are already salty).
  • Spray a 16-ounce microwave-safe mug with cooking spray and then pour in the omelet mixture.
  • Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for a minute or so and enjoy it.


Microwave strengths vary. 2 minutes always work for me and I typically use extra-large eggs. If I use large eggs I microwave for 1 minute and 50 seconds.
