Breakfasts can be a real effort, especially midweek. I often have a stash of hard-boiled eggs ready to go in the mornings – combined with a low carb tortilla and pre-cooked bacon it can be a super speedy breakfast. But if I want something hot or don't have any eggs prepared, then this recipe is a great alternative. Minimum preparation, quick to cook, and tasty and filling to eat. Not only that, it's very versatile depending on what you have available! Here I have used eggs, grated cheese, ham, and black pepper.
How to Make a Quick Egg & Ham Breakfast
In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk the eggs together.
Add some diced ham and shredded cheese (I used mozzarella) to the bowl – if you buy these ready-prepared then this dish is even quicker!!!. I find diced ham a super useful ingredient to have in the fridge – great for omelets, quesadillas, salads, and more! Grind some black pepper over everything.
Mix well, then place in the microwave for a minute.
Give it another stir, then microwave again for 30 seconds or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. Microwaves can vary so much!
The whole thing can be done in five minutes – including eating!
Instead of the ham you could use crumbled cooked bacon or finely chopped cooked sausage. Add any leftover cooked vegetables too for added flavor and vitamins. This breakfast really isn't about care and loving attention – it's about having something quick and filling (oh – and low carb!) when you haven't got much time in the morning.
