What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or mayo
  • Salt, to taste
  1. Melt butter in the Anyday dish. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until fully incorporated.
  2. Cook uncovered in the microwave in 30-second intervals for 1.5 - 2 minutes, whisking (not stirring!) each time to achieve the classic scrambled egg curds.
  3. Continue cooking for 15 seconds. On the last whisk, some egg might still be liquid, but as you whisk it will all finish cooking.
  4. Enjoy as-is or over toast.
