On the go, on the go, on the go. Seems it's the story of our lives.  We are always running from one event to the next and we don't always eat right.  My powerhouse of the day is breakfast.  If I start my day off with a tasty breakfast, my world works a little bit better. However there is not always time to drag out the pots and pans to whip up a healthy tidbit.
When I first thought of making eggs in the microwave, all I could think about was the quicky marts type of spongy eggs. I thought that was the only way that eggs were cooked in the microwave.  I set about trying different ways to cook them and quickly learned it wasn't that hard.  Don't over cook them seems to be the prevalent thought.  The other consideration is the wattage on your microwave, the higher the wattage, the quicker it will be done.  Mine is the 1000watt so it was done in 60 seconds.  At a lower wattage, check after 45-60 seconds and adjust.
As for the options, add whatever you would normally add to an omelette.  You can add more cheese, a variety of cheeses, salsa, sausage (cooked), chunks of cooked potato, kale, or mushrooms.  Mix it up and change it up every time.
Go wild.
Serves 1

Recipe:

1 egg
1 tsp Milk
1 tsp Butter or margarine
1 TBSP Shredded cheese of your choice
Salt and Pepper to taste

Options:  Bacon cooked and chopped (about 1 slice), Spinach chopped, about 1-2 TBSP, Cilantro chopped about 1 tsp, cherry tomatoes chopped 2 larger or 4-6 smaller, green or red onion diced 1 TBSP

Use the butter to "grease" the mug and leave any extra at the bottom.
Crack in egg and add milk
Whisk
Add the rest of the ingredients (I added the tomatoes after cooking but you can add them during the cooking) and stir to coat all
Place in microwave for 45 seconds and check for doneness, this will all depend on the microwave.  If cooked too long it will get spongy and any longer then that it turns hard.
In my microwave (1000 watt) It was done at 60 seconds
You can leave it in the mug or because of the butter, it slides right out of the mug.
Serve with fruit or fruit and yogurt.

After "buttering" the cup, whisk the egg and milk right in the mug
