Confetti Egg Scramble

Makes 4 serving(s)

WHAT'S IN IT?

1/2 large red or green bell pepper
1/2 small onion
4 large eggs
1/4 cup (2 fluid ounces) fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon salt

STUFF YOU NEED

Cutting board
Cutting knife
Large, microwave-safe bowl
Microwave-safe plastic wrap
Potholders
Liquid measuring cup
Medium-size bowl
Measuring spoons
Whisk and/or fork
2 clean forks
4 plates
4 forks

HOW TO PUT IT TOGETHER

  1. Place the red or green bell pepper and onion on a cutting board. Using the cutting knife, chop the red or green bell pepper and onion. The chopped peppers and onions should be about the size of your fingernails!
  2. Toss the pepper and onion into a large, microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Loosely cover the bowl with microwave-safe plastic wrap, turning back one corner of the wrap to let out the extra steam.
  4. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, or until the veggies are tender. Cautiously remove the bowl from the microwave with potholders. Watch out for the steam!
  5. Crack the eggs into the medium-size bowl and watch them go splat. Then, pour the measured milk and salt on top of the eggs. Beat with a whisk or fork.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the tender veggies into the large, microwave-safe bowl. Again, loosely cover the bowl with microwave-safe plastic wrap, turning back one corner.
  7. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir the egg mixture with a clean fork. Microwave on high for 2 more minutes.
  8. Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave with potholders. This time, completely cover the bowl with the plastic wrap. Let the bowl stand, covered, for 1 minute.
  9. Remove the cover and stir with another clean fork. Watch out for the steam!
  10. Divide the scrumptious Scramble into four portions on plates and serve with forks while warm.
  11. Enjoy your Scramble with toast on the side. Or, for no-fork-required fun, roll each portion up in a tortilla. Round out your meal with some fabulous fruit, too!
