There’s no reason not to eat a healthy and delicious breakfast. If you’ve got 29 seconds, you can dine on a gourmet-ish egg cooked in your microwave. This is one of my favorite quick breakfasts. Okay really you’ll need a full minute when you add in prep, but what a great tradeoff. One minute for protein and vitamins!
This egg is so simple.
Crack an egg in one of those small measuring bowls, the sort cooks use to line up all their ingredients on food shows.
Give it a stir.
Add your favorite spices. I added a smidge of tarragon, cayenne and freshly ground black pepper.
Cover with a paper towel and cook in the microwave for 29 seconds on high. (Every microwave is different. You will need to experiment to find out the perfect time for your egg.)
Top with a dab of goat cheese. I bought yummy White River Creamery (Elkins, Ar) artisan goat cheese at Fayetteville Farmer’s Market. (Follow White River Creamery on Facebook.) They are an Arkansas Made & Arkansas Grown company.
I added a few currant tomatoes from my sister-in-law’s garden and there you have it, an easy yet impressive breakfast. Oh and there was coffee, of course.
