  • Remove bowl from microwave and stir in eggs, mixing until well incorporated. Return bowl to the microwave and cook for 45 seconds. Stir and continue cooking until eggs have set, 45 more seconds. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

Drain bowl if longaniza releases grease before adding eggs. I used Aldi(R)'s brand of longaniza, which I find not to be greasy.
