Tuesday Treat: Southwest Scrambled Eggs

SW EggsWe love breakfast for dinner and I’m always looking for the easy. This is about as easy as it gets. I don’t use the SW mixed veggies, though. I add chopped onions instead. You could also add chopped olives and top with sour cream. 😀


PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
1/2 cup Egg Beaters® Original
2 tablespoons frozen Southwest mixed vegetables (corn, black beans, red peppers)
2 tablespoons shredded Mexican blend cheese
1 teaspoon chopped nacho jalapeño pepper


Spray inside of large microwave-safe mug with cooking spray.
Stir together Egg Beaters, vegetables, cheese and jalapeno pepper in mug.
Microwave on HIGH 1 minute. Stir; microwave 45 seconds more or until set. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Tips

For a take-with breakfast, wrap scrambler in a warm tortilla. No pickled jalapenos on hand? Substitute a little ground red pepper. The scrambler puffs up and fills the mug while cooking. It falls quickly once removed from microwave. Use a large (15-ounce) microwave-safe mug to hold the ingredients and to reduce the chance of overflow. Mugs that are wider and shorter work best. A 2-cup glass measure may be used as well. Microwave wattages vary; adjust cook time as needed. Cook the scrambler just until the egg is set. For gluten free preparation, confirm all recipe ingredients are gluten free by reading product labels each time you make this recipe.
