A mother of two has impressed foodies online after revealing her ‘quick office breakfast hack’ for easy-to-fill scrambled eggs.
Instead of cooking and reheating the meal in advance, Tamika, from Queensland, made her breakfast using the microwave in the office.
She put two raw eggs, shredded cheese, milk, diced tomato, and shallots in a ziplock bag, then mixed all the ingredients in a bowl in the microwave for three minutes.
On Facebook, Tamika said the meal was “delicious” and served the eggs on a slice of toast.
Instead of pre-cooking and reheating the meal, Queensland-based Tamika made her breakfast using the microwave in the office
She put two raw eggs, grated cheese, milk, diced tomato, and shallots in a ziplock bag, then mixed all the ingredients in a bowl in the microwave for three minutes.
‘Personally I don’t like breakfast cereals or toast and try to eat fairly low carbohydrates. I took it to work this week and it’s such a delicious quick healthy breakfast when you have a microwave,” Tamika wrote on Facebook.
“You have to stop and mix every 30 seconds with the fork, stop when you’re happy with the consistency.”
It is important to stir the mixture every 30 seconds or else the eggs will explode in the microwave.
“I don’t like hard scrambled eggs, so I’ll stop for about 2.5 minutes, but it also depends on your microwave,” Tamika said.
At first, the unusual trick divided foodies on social media, but hundreds later supported the hack, claiming it was a “great idea” for camping and picky kids.
Instead of using plastic bags, a mother recommended using small glass jars
Instead of using plastic bags, one mom recommended using small glass jars.
“This works really well in a Mason Jar. If you crack the eggs and put them in the fridge overnight, they’ll keep well,” Taylah wrote in the comments, sharing an image.
“Please think of this instead of two plastic bags every day, our environment and your bank will thank you,” she added.
Others who tried the “genius” hack supported the idea and recommended it to others.
‘You can also do this while camping, you take out the Ziplock bags in boiling water with all the ingredients in it. Great for picky kids who like different things in their eggs,” one woman wrote.
‘That is a great idea. Eggs are so good for you. If you add crumbled feta and frozen spinach, it’s also great in scrambled eggs,” added another.
A third was impressed and said: ‘Looks like it would be delicious! Thanks for the tip.’
