Eggs in a Mug

Picture 081

I am so excited to share this new breakfast idea I recently discovered.  It has revolutionized my morning routine of feeding my kids a good hot breakfast before school.  Did you know you can make scrambled eggs in a mug?  In a microwave?  In  two and a half minutes?  I LOVE IT!

No more having to crack eggs in a separate bowl, then scramble them in a pan with oil and a spatula, then serve them on a separate plate!  The mug is the bowl, pan and plate all in one!!  Have I used enough exclamation points to let you know that I’m super excited about his one?!!!!!!  I think so.

Start by scrambling two eggs in a coffee mug, with some milk, salt and pepper.

Add in some shredded cheese.  Any kind you like.

Tear up some bread into small pieces.  I used 1/4 of a bagel here.

Then tear up some deli meat.  Yes, I used my bare hands.  I don’t have time for a cutting board and knife!  Stir everything up and pop it in the microwave.

Look at that lovely goodness peeking out to say, “Hello, I’m ready to be your healthy and hot breakfast!”

Remember, you can change out the kinds of cheese, meat or bread you want.  Heck, you can even add in some veggies like spinach and tomatoes if you like.  Just think of what you like in your omelette and you can use it.

This is so easy, my kids can do it themselves.  That would really free up your morning routine!

 

Eggs in a Mug

2 eggs

4 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons shredded cheese

Salt

Pepper

1 slice ham

½ slice of bread

 

Break the eggs into a mug and scramble with a fork.  Add in the milk, cheese, salt and pepper and beat it to incorporate.  Rip pieces of the ham and bread into the mug and combine with the fork.  Microwave on high for about 2 ½ to 3 minutes.

  1. I’ve made this for my daughter two days in a row and she loves it! So easy and convenient. Thanks for the recipe. I really like your blog.

    • Colleen,
      You do not have to use bread. The only thing is that you will notice water in the bottom of the cup from the extra moisture that was not absorbed by the bread. It will still taste good!

  2. Ingenious. I’ve been looking for something much simpler than the whole production of eggs in skillet, etc. You, Karen are brilliant! Thanks for sharing.

  17. I have to eat gluten free, and I didn’t want to thaw my bread to make breakfast, so I tore up half of a corn tortilla instead of the bread, and it turned out wonderful. I also used almond milk. What an easy, yummy start to the morning! Thank you for the idea.

  19. My son has recently had to start eating gluten, soy, rice and corn free and so basically he’s eating a lot of eggs in the mornings now (which he’s not a huge fan of) but I’ve been looking for more creative ways to prepare them so he will like them more! Thank you for this recipe! This is not only probably another fun way he’ll eat them (from the mug) but makes it super quick and easy for school mornings!!

  21. My Dad is in a nursing home due to needing rehab from surgery and he had eggs in his refrigerator that needed used before they went bad. I am not a cook in any way and don’t do anything that doesn’t use a microwave. I know, I’m bad.. Anyway, I found this site and needless to say, I will do this again because this is simple and tasty. Dad had some pre-cooked sausage in the fridge too, so I took it and used it instead of deli meat. I’m kinda looking forward to thinking up other things that can go in the eggs.
