Eggs a la Roh

Were you ever frustrated by how hard it is to clean a container in which you’ve microwaved eggs?

Worry no more!

This is really quick, easy, and fairly healthful. I invented it recently. Sure, someone else may have come up with it too but I hadn’t known about it.

Start with a large burrito sized tortilla, the thinner the better, and lay it on a plate. Crack two eggs on it and use a fork to mix them up. You can add salt, pepper, dill, garlic, etc, to the eggs.  They should collect in the middle, held in by the edges of the plate.

Put this in the microwave and cook on high till the middle solidifies, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.  The eggs will bubble up and the cooked area gradually spread toward the center.

Take out of microwave, probably with pot holders, and sprinkle cheese on top. Fold in half.

Result: Tasty eggs in a tortilla shell so it’s a lot easier to clean the plate!

There are a million potential variations – add peppers, olives, different kinds of cheese, chopped vegetables, mushrooms, salsa, crumbled bacon, or really, whatever you want.  The other reason why I like this dish is it’s incredibly cheap.  Tortillas aren’t expensive, neither are eggs, and this results in a meal full of protein and healthy fats.
