This is an easy alternative to the frying pan and requires only a tiny bit of butter, cooking spray, or diet margarine. Older children and teens can make this, or younger kids with adult help.


  • 1 slice of cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
  • salt and pepper
  • toast or English muffin
  • thin bit of butter
  • real bacon bits


On a piece of waxed paper, cutting board, or paper plate, press an inverted custard cup onto a slice of cheese so you end up with a round piece the size of the cup. You may be able to use a small microwavable coffee cup if you don't have custard cups. Set the cheese aside.

Lightly butter or spray the inside of the cup. Crack the egg into the cup, add the milk, salt and pepper. With fork or whisk, mix gently.

Top with the round slice of cheese and place in microwave on the waxed paper. Cook on high for 2 minutes. It will be very HOT, use towel or hot pad to take out of mic.

Quick Cheesy Egg On Toast - place cheese one top and place in microwave.

Place the toast or toasted muffin on top of cup and an inverted plate on top of toast. Carefully flip the whole shebang over (I use a spatula under the cup and my hand on the plate).


Egg should slide out of cup onto the toast. Remove cup. Sprinkle with some bacon bits and dig in.

It's a bit of a production cutting the cheese into a round shape, isn't it? I do something very similar that's a lot easier. I just tear up the slice of cheese and mix it into the scrambled egg mixture before cooking it in the microwave. That gives you a cheesy scrambled egg.


I cook mine for 1 minute which seems to be plenty of time. Or just place the piece of cheese on the toast and put the hot egg on top of it. The heat of the egg will melt the cheese.

I'm not crazy about bacon bits so I put a slice of ham or turkey under the cheese. Tastes good to me.

Definitely quicker to tear the cheese up. But cutting the slice into a round is a cinch. Just use the custard cup as a cookie cutter. Kids like this part. Press the inverted cup down onto the cheese and the 4 corners come right off - you can put the corner bits into the egg mixture.


The round makes a nice seal over the top of the egg mix. so it doesn't "spit" in the mic and make a mess.
