- Cook Time:
- 1 min
- Pinch salt
- 1/4 cup (60 mL) whole-grain croutons
- 1 egg
- 1 slice extra lean back bacon, chopped
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) shredded light Cheddar cheese
- Salsa (optional)
Sprinkle salt in bottom of microwave-safe mug. Add half of the croutons.
Whisk egg, bacon and cheese with fork in small bowl; pour into mug. Top with remaining croutons. Cover lightly with plastic wrap; place in microwave.
Microwave on High (100% power) until egg is set, about 1 minute. Let stand for 20 seconds before serving. Serve with salsa, if desired.
To make in a microwave egg cooker: Sprinkle salt in bottom of egg cooker; layer ingredients as directed. Place lid on cooker base, lining up notches; twist to secure. Place egg cooker in microwave. Microwave on High (100% power) until egg is nearly set, about 50 seconds. Let stand for 20 seconds before serving.
For a softer texture, substitute cubed whole grain bread for croutons.
Instead of back bacon, use a slice of Black Forest ham or 2 slices cooked strip or peameal bacon.
