Scrambled Egg Breakfast Burrito

Makes 1 serving

This recipe concept, developed by the American Egg Board, is genius in its simplicity.

1 flour tortilla (6-inch size)

1 egg

1 Tbsp. shredded cheddar cheese

1 Tbsp. salsa

Line 2-cup microwave-safe cereal bowl with microwave-safe paper towel. Press tortilla into the bowl. Crack egg into the center of the tortilla and beat egg gently with a fork to blend. Microwave on high 30 seconds; stir and microwave 15 to 30 seconds more until egg is almost set.

Remove tortilla to a flat surface. Top egg with cheese and salsa; fold bottom of the tortilla over the egg and fold in each side.

Microwave-Oven-Baked Apples

Makes 1 serving

Take a few minutes to core and stuff an apple; then bake for just 5 minutes.

1 small Braeburn or Granny Smith apple, peeled

1 Tbsp. butter

1 Tbsp. rolled oats

1 Tbsp. light brown sugar

1 tsp. flour

Pinch salt

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/3 c. apple juice

1/2 tsp. sugar

Freshly grated nutmeg


Use a melon baller to core the stem end of the apple, then hollow a 1-inch cavity in the center.

In small bowl, mix together butter, oats, brown sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon; fill the apple.

Set apple in a small microwave-safe dish, add juice; sprinkle apple with sugar and nutmeg. Microwave on high until apple softens and liquid is bubbling, about 5 minutes. Serve with yogurt. Recipe by Katie Barreira, cooking newbie blogger.

French Toast

Dip French bread slices into mixture of 2 beaten eggs, 1/2 c. milk, 1 tsp. sugar, a pinch of salt and 1/4 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg. Fry in butter or oil until golden.
