  1. Spray inside of large microwave-safe mug with cooking spray.

  3. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute. Stir; microwave 30 seconds more or until set. Top with remaining 1 tablespoon cheese. Serve immediately.

Cook's Tip

The scrambler puffs up and fills the mug while cooking. It falls quickly once removed from microwave. Use a large (15-ounce) microwave-safe mug to hold the ingredients and to reduce the chance of overflow. Mugs that are wider and shorter work best. A 2-cup glass measure may be used as well. Microwave wattages vary; adjust cook time as needed. Cook the scrambler just until the egg is set.

I was highly dubious about egg beaters in general and this recipe in particular. The corporate synergies required to make this recipe possible was unsettling. But it's delicious and easy. I am now a believer. I use about 3 cartons of egg beaters per week and started frequenting chat rooms of like minded folks. I am starting to suspect the egg beaters chat rooms have nothing to do this delicious product and are really about some tainted variant of a rusty trombone. Love egg beaters! 5 stars! This recipe makes me smile in the morning!

I sprayed the cooking spray until the spray stopped spraying and I couldn't spray any more that's when I knew I had enough because the last time I tried to make this cleaning the mug was impossible I had to throw the mug away but if you spray enough spray it's not only delicious but a real quick clean up too that's four stars because I took off a star for that first time even though it was kind of my fault

As someone who really enjoys eggs, this dish was tailor-made for me. New buttons on my (Moroccan) slacks and free breakfast, what a deal! After the recommended time, the dish was too wet; back in the microwave it went. After 20 more seconds, it came out, redolent of a summer breeze scented with cheese, eggs and bacon. Tried a mouthful, pretty good but I would recommend eating with a sauce that is dark i.e. worcestershire. Altogether pretty good, gonna get Bruce, my (former Prussian) tailor to make it again, but this time will substitute SPAM for PAM.

Easy to make but difficult to drink.

10 minutes is debatable because I'm done in 7. I make mine with a twist of tequila. no extra time required and when subbing extra cheddar for jalapeno jack it all comes together like the huxtable family. this is a 5 of 5.

prep time 10? no way. I'm killing it in 5. super delicious and crazy quick. I take my mug on the l every morning and the homeless people can't stop asking what the delicious smelling food is in my mug. I have to give it a 4 for leaving out jalapenos.
