  1. Take a large microwaveable cup/mug. Oil it up on the inside.
  2. Now, break two eggs and put them inside the cup.
  3. Put in 1 tablespoon of milk (you can take one tablespoon of water as well but milk will give you a creamier and fluffier texture). This will ensure that your eggs have enough moisture to cook. Otherwise, they’ll probably explode.
  4. Add in a quarter teaspoon of salt, a quarter teaspoon of pepper, and all the vegetables you’ve prepared along with the cheese.
  5. Give all of that a good mix and place the cup into the microwave for 30 seconds.
  6. Once done, carefully take the cup out and give it a quick mix before placing it back into the microwave for 30 more seconds.
  7. Take the cup out again, give it a mix, and place it back into the microwave for a final 30 seconds.
  8. Keep in mind that the timing may vary based on how powerful your microwave is. It can vary between 20 to 30 seconds per round.
  9. After that’s done, you’ll get a perfectly cooked soft omelet!
