    1 tsp salted butter

    1 tsp chopped onion

    2 eggs

    1 tbsp red pepper, finely diced

    1 tsp chopped spring onions

    1 tbsp cheddar, grated

    1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped


    Place the butter and chopped onion into a microwavable mug. Cook for 30 seconds then remove from the microwave and give it a good stir. Once your mug has cooled down slightly, swish the onion and butter around the mug to coat the sides.

    In a separate bowl beat the eggs with a fork, then add the chopped red pepper, spring onion, grated cheese, chopped parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Pour the omelette mixture into the mug and place it back into the microwave, cook for 20 seconds.

    Open the microwave and stir the egg, repeat cooking for 20 seconds and stir again.

    Cook for a final 20 seconds until the egg mixture starts to set.

    Remove the mug from the microwave and let it stand for 1 minute.
