Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles

I discovered Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles on my first (failed) attempt at Paleo. I was living in a hotel room at the time, and my cooking appliances were limited to a microwave (permitted) and an electric kettle (not permitted, shhhhhh…). I used to do the whole “omelet in a mug” thing, but I didn’t have a good way to wash dishes. Fortunately, Jimmy Dean caught on to the omelet in a mug thing, too, and made it easier for me.

This one is my favorite, but they come with just bacon or just sausage as well. You empty the egg in to the cup (real beaten eggs here, not liquid eggs) and throw them into the microwave for the amount of time on the instructions. Take them out, stir in the…well…stir-ins, and nuke it some more. Then you have a nice scrambled egg breakfast to go and no dishes to wash up later.

I will admit there is a little more salt in these things than I like to have. One of my most favorite things about them, though, is that the eggs are real. No egg substitute. Good, real eggs. Now that I have a kitchen, I don’t eat these as often, but they are definitely an on-the-road favorite.

Did I mention that the eggs are real?
