These scrambled eggs are a one-dish wonder and cook in about 11/2 minutes in the microwave. Alternatively, you can cook in a pan on the stove.

For variety, add a few extras, such as chopped shaved ham, grated cheese, spring onion or chopped cherry tomatoes.

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1-2 slices shaved ham, sliced
  • Parsley or spinach, finely chopped (optional)
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • Wholegrain toast soldiers

1 In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk. Add ham and parsley, if desired, and season well.

2 Heat on full power for 1 minute in the microwave, then carefully remove and stir gently to break-up the egg. Cook for a further 30 seconds until the egg is just set. Serve with toast.

About Jo Wilcox

"I have had a love of food my whole life. Lucky for me my mum allowed me to play in the kitchen from the very beginning – from sitting up on the bench watch her peeling peaches for preserving or planning dinner parties from her many Womans Weekly Cookbooks. Starting in my local beach café, I went onto professional cookery training and my big foodie OE working as a professional chef and nanny. At 21 I launched my first restaurant. The following years saw me owning a gourmet cake and dessert shop and then a pasta deli before I discovered the world of food styling. Today I work in food styling making food look beautiful and tasty in packaging and advertising shoots, as well as my most important role yet – Food Editor of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. I aim to provide great meal solutions that are interesting and approachable, and of course gorgeous foodie photos that make you want to cook them! I love the feedback and the knowledge that people actually cook them and have great results. If I can give someone a love of cooking and enjoying family meal times and gatherings then my job is done!" See www.jowilcox.co.nz
