Scrambled Eggs

2 eggs

2 tablespoons milk

salt and pepper

1 teaspoon butter

1 slice bread

Porridge

1 third cup crushed rolled oats

one cup milk

pinch salt

Optional toppings - banana, kiwi fruit, brown sugar, honey or milk

Put the toast on to cook. Lightly whisk the eggs and milk in a bowl adding salt and pepper. In a small non-stick pan melt the butter. Pour in the egg. Using a wooden spoon pull the egg gently from the edge of the pan to the centre. Do not stir.  The egg will be glistening and soft. Take off the heat until the toast is cooked.

Add the oats, milk and salt to a large microwave jug. Mix ingredients well.

Microwave on High for 2 mins. Different microwaves cook at different temperature so sometimes the porridge needs to be cooked for less time. This will be a matter of trial and error.
