Microwave 1-Minute Ham and Egg Breakfast BowlEggs, ham and cheese join forces in a three ingredient breakfast bowl that's fast and mess-free.

1 thin slice deli ham (1 ounce)
1 large egg, beaten
Shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and ground black pepper to taste (optional)

  1. Line the bottom of 8-ounce ramekin or custard cup with ham slice, folding ham in half, if necessary. Pour egg over ham, season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  2. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds; stir. Microwave until egg is almost set, 15 to 30 seconds longer.
  3. Top with cheese. Serve immediately.

Makes 1 serving.
