Mix it up, cook for 1-2 minutes in the microwave, and BOOM... breakfast is served!

It all started last November… we were doing a COMPLETE kitchen remodel, so I was cooking all our meals without a kitchen. I ended up with a small table set up in our dining room, which held our coffeemaker, toaster and our old microwave.

That’s it. One electric outlet. One microwave…or THREE MONTHS! My husband and I both work from home, so all 3 meals every single day had to be cooked without a kitchen. Happy to tell ya, we survived, and we had several of these quick microwaved ham cheese omelets during the construction!

Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention, Right?

Needless to say, we ate a lot of cereal, toast, and microwaved oatmeal for breakfast. That is, UNTIL I learned how easy it is to microwave eggs and use them to make a microwave  egg breakfast sandwich! I experimented around with another way to quickly make eggs in the microwave and came up with this really quick microwaved ham cheese omelet.

While our kitchen was being remodeled, I used our microwave to cook.

If you would like the convenience of making an incredibly quick and delicious ham and cheese omelet before sending the kids off to school or rushing out the door to work, then this one is for YOU! This single serving microwaved ham cheese omelet tastes great, and is so EASY to put together, you will be pleasantly surprised! Plus… it only takes between 1-2 minutes to cook!

I know traditional omelets are lovely elongated filled bundles of egg goodness, but THIS one is cooked in a custard sized dish (or a mug). It’s a non-traditional size, but still contains all the ham and cheese goodness found in a “normal” omelet!

Here’s How EASY It Is To Make A Microwaved Ham Cheese Omelet:

Spray a custard sized microwaveable dish with cooking spray (bottom and sides).  Crack two eggs into dish, and add water, salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients together with a fork until combined (notice I even used a plastic fork during the remodel- hey, whatever is easy!).

Cut a couple thin slices of ham into small pieces (I used thinly sliced deli ham – if using a piece of ham from a large piece of ham, cut it into very small cubes). Grate cheddar cheese. Add the ham pieces and grated cheddar cheese to the egg mixture, and stir to combine. This only takes a minute to get ready, and then all you need to do is microwave it!

Time For the Microwave!

Once the ingredients are mixed together, place the dish in the microwave. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, or until it is cooked through in the center (mine cooked in 1 minute 45 seconds). It looked like the photo below after I took it out of the microwave. See how the eggs puff up a bit when they cook?

Since microwave temps do vary a bit, check the omelet after one minute. If there is still liquid present, stick it back in the microwave for another 30-45 seconds, then check it again.

Once it is finished cooking, it is ready to eat!  Grab a fork (hopefully NOT a plastic fork), and dig in.  As you can see in the photo below, I took it up to my office and ate it. The eggs come out fluffy, the cheese is melted, and the ham makes it perfect! DELICIOUS!
