After showing her followers how to make a cup of “British tea” in the microwave on June 8, Michelle, an American woman living in the UK, decided to follow it up with a video on how to make a classic English breakfast item.
“So after my last videos, I got a lot of questions about trying an English breakfast,” Michelle said in the TikTok video which she shared to her Twitter account. “So today I’m going to make you some British eggs!”
Over the course of the 36-second video, the mother of three cracked two eggs into a bowl, added salt, pepper, whipped cream, and sugar, and then put it in the microwave to cook for two minutes. At the time of writing, Michelle’s video had over 300,000 views on TikTok.
Michelle didn’t clarify what she meant by “British eggs” in her video, but this “Perfect scrambled eggs recipe” by cook Bill Granger for the BBC calls for milk or cream – not whipped cream – and doesn’t involve any sugar.
Michelle often shares videos of herself and her family on TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, and on her YouTube channel, and started an uproar on Twitter in early June when she shared her tea tutorial encouraging home cooks to microwave their water, add loads of milk, and top it all off with copious amounts of sugar.
After sharing her microwavable egg breakfast, some of Michelle’s followers have asked questions like “Why are you doing this?” and say she is “ruining food one tweet at a time.”
Meanwhile, others think Michelle is actually “trolling” UK breakfast, and say they appreciate the perceived humour coming out of these videos.
Michelle did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
