"great recipe. I sautéed my zucchini and onions in 1 T. extra virgin olive oil, transferred to my French White quiche dish, poured the ham/egg/salt/pepper mixture over it, sprinkled with the cheese and baked in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. I am not thrilled with microwaved egg meals, but I loved this one the way I adapted it."

"I rate this as 4 1/2 star for simplicity and quick and easy good tastes. Instead of ham, I used leftover carnitas. I would advise the plate sprayed with some oil first so it does not stick and since every microwave is different in power, adjust the power and or timing. You may not hit the power/time the first time ie mine came out a little more cooked and dier than I like but next time, I will cut down on time so that is a little more moist. Truly enjoyed with green salad for simple and quick lunch."
