Eggs are a versatile and ever-present member of the classic American breakfast. Whether scrambled, fried, over-easy, or hard-boiled, they're flavorful, filling, and fun to make. Not many would find making eggs excruciatingly difficult; even James, who's likely to burn water when in the kitchen, manages to whip up some eggs in a reasonable amount of time. But that shouldn't stop anyone from toying with the possibility of cooking it in even less time! I'm thinking about the morning rush - where every little extra bit of time (or sleep) counts! If you enjoy your eggs scrambled, this recipe can be an enjoyable, swift alternative; and if you take them in any form, this method will be the ultimate time-saver. All you need are eggs, but you can throw in some of your own favorite ingredients or twists to really personalize this dish. I threw in some Garlic Parsley Butter and basil parsley ricotta cheese, but you could easily edit depending on your preferences and availability. All you need are eggs, a microwave-safe cup, and a microwave, and you're on your way to a speedy breakfast!
