  1. Spray inside of large microwave-safe mug with cooking spray.
  2. Stir together Egg Beaters, vegetables, cheese and jalapeno pepper in mug.
  3. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute. Stir; microwave 45 seconds more or until set. Serve immediately.

Cook's Tip

For a take-with breakfast, wrap scrambler in a warm tortilla. No pickled jalapenos on hand? Substitute a little ground red pepper. 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.

This recipe was really easy. I had no idea you could microwave egg beaters. Mine had a bit of water at the bottom after cooking but still really good!

Just tried this recipe exactly as written - it was great. (I'll add more jalapeño next time for more heat). This makes a quick, easy, healthy, and filling breakfast.

Perfect blend of flavors so no salt and/or pepper was needed. This is a great meal to make at work. No muss, no fuss.
