Single Egg Omelette Recipe

Isn’t it funny how the universe works, I was sitting at my desk at work the other day and it was raining outside and I really wanted something warm for lunch. Over summer I’ve been having things that are cold or leftovers I don’t mind cold so I started trying to think of nice warm lunch ideas. Then a couple of days later I was shopping with my grandmother and I spotted this Sistema single egg cooker and a great idea hit me in the face. I could make omelettes for lunch in the microwave at work!

Here’s how I’ve been making them:

1 Egg  Broken into the egg cooker and slightly beaten with a fork

50ml of Calcitrim Milk

50g of Chopped Lean Ham

A tiny sprinkle of cheese (I use Edam)


I put the egg in first, pour the milk in and stir it up a bit and then drop the ham and cheese on top. The egg cookers direction suggest putting it in for 40 seconds, stirring and then putting it back in for a further minute. My microwave is pathetic and I have to cook it for almost twice as long. I haven’t tried it at work yet but my only advice here is if you’re unsure of your microwave do it in little bits so you don’t overcook it too much.


I have roughly calculated the protein content of this recipe and it’s about 18 grams of protein in total which is a really good amount for a lunch. The amount that this makes is about the limit of my stomach capacity so I am left feeling nicely full after eating this.

I’m glad I stumbled across this little egg cooker. I found it at The Warehouse and it had 50% off so instead of $7 it was only $3.50. It’s a super easy way for me to get a nice, warm and protein packed lunch in and I think this will be on the menu a couple of times a week over winter. Are you finding you’re wanting warm food now that the weather is starting to change? Comment below and let me know what your favourite winter lunch is!

    What a cute little gadget! I use these same ingredients and quantities (maybe a little less milk) to scramble eggs in a coffee mug. Throw in a teaspoonful of herbs and it’s quick hot lunch. The only part I haven’t worked out yet is how to transport the raw egg to work without a disaster happening in my handbag.

    I have been doing something similar in one egg frying pan for dinner. I totally want one of those sistema egg cookers so I can make it at work. Thanks for posting Melissa!
