    We love this recipe. So quick and easy. I made a couple of minor changes. I used one egg and the equivalent of one egg with an egg substitute product. Because mug sizes vary, I had to microwave mine 1 ½ minutes to stir then another 1 minute to finish. I suggest using the printed directions the first time then recalculate for your own mug. We will see this recipe again and again. Volunteer Field Editor

    My 19 yr old never knows what to have for breakfast but when I showed her this recipe, she made it twice in the first week! So much simpler than getting out the frypan. You need a bit more time to firm up the eggs though.

    It tasted like the eggs you'd get from Denny's: rubbery, flaky, not very flavorful at all. It IS quick, though. Took me about five minutes, total.
