Ingredients

  • 2 large British Lion eggs
  • 30ml/2tbsp milk
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • toast and bacon to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Crack the eggs into a micro-proof bowl or jug. Add the milk and season with salt and ground black pepper, then whisk together with a fork.
  2. Place in the microwave and cook on HIGH for 1 min. Remove from the oven and whisk with a fork. Return to the oven and cook for a further 30 secs, stir again. The egg should be softly set.
  3. Leave to stand for 1 minute before serving with toast. If you prefer your scramble a bit firmer, cook for a further 20-30 seconds.

Cook's tip: Microwave your bacon too! Place 2 rashers of bacon in a single layer on a micro-proof plate, cover with a piece of kitchen paper and microwave on HIGH for 1 min 30 secs.
