    1 ingredient? Isn't that scrambled eggs, just over cooked?
    Omeletts have eggs, milk, butter, and veggies/meats - all blended/whisked together.

    Waitress:
    What do you want in your omelette, sir?

    Marty:
    Nothing in the omelette, nothing at all.

    Waitress:
    Well, that's not technically an omelette.

    Marty:
    Look, I don't want to get into a semantic argument, I just want the protein.
    From Grosse Point Blank

    I have a passion for omeletts.

    Any glass pot whose metal lid is very hard to open because of the vacuum inside ?
    Less than one minute in the oven does the trick.

    Microwaves lie! I put a potato in the microwave & pressed the Pop Corn button. When it dinged I opened the door and it was STILL a potato!

    Microwaves are okay, but still use the oven/stove top more.
    This post is like Brigadoon!

    Tubers!!! Completely forgot those. I cook potatoes and sweet potatoes in the microwave too. 8m each poked and wrapped in a wet paper towel. Much faster than 45-60 min the oven at 450 deg.

    I don't really cook stuff in the microwave, but I've been spoiled by my air fryer.

    Come to think of it, I haven't tried to cook a potato in the microwave in a long time.

    Baked potato sounds yummy too...

    Much better than boiled for a medium size fish.

    That is also one of my major uses of the microwave along with the fish as mentioned by corradoventu; can't beat fish cooked in a covered dish with a slice of lemon and a bit of butter on top.
    The potato always goes in the hot oven as well for 5 - 10 mins, if it's already hot, to crisp up the skin.
    My mouth's watering already!

    I use a convection microwave oven, cooks anything an electric oven can + microwave can join in. Pork, beef wrapped in foil watch me Star Trek and wait for the ding.
