MICROWAVE EGG CAPRESE BREAKFAST CUPS

Dis nou ‘n maklike en vinnige ontbyt, vullend… en heerlik!

  • 2 slices thinly sliced ham
  • shredded Mozzarella or Provolone or a mix of the two
  • 2 eggs
  • basil pesto sauce
  • Cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • fresh basil leaves, if desired

Layer the slices of ham on the bottom and up the sides of a ramekin or small bowl pressing into the creases and ruffling the edges then sprinkle with the cheese.

Crack the eggs into the ramekins and add a dollop of pesto over the eggs with a few cherry tomato halves and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Place in the microwave and cover with a microwave plate cover and cook on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds or until the whites are set, adding additional 20 second bursts if needed.
Note:
All microwaves will cook differently so play around with the amount of time. If cooking more than one set of eggs at a time allow for more cooking time as well. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and more kosher salt and black pepper if desired.
