A Quick & Easy Breakfast

While these egg mugs aren’t exactly the same as a classic omelette, they have similar ingredients and flavors.

    • No extra bowls, utensils or even a pan! Cook microwave omelettes in the same mug, using the same fork for scrambling the eggs! How easy is that?
    • Just use an egg or two and some mix-ins and they’re ready to serve!
    • These can be made with whole eggs or egg whites if preferred.

What You’ll Ask for

EGGS The base for any omelette is eggs. Feel free to use whole eggs, egg whites or even egg substitute if you prefer.

BUTTER Butter adds flavor to an omelette and makes for a great texture. Make sure to oil or spray the dish, too, so that the egg doesn’t stick.

ADD-INS My favorite add in is sharp cheddar cheese but you can add any veggie or cooked meat you’d Enjoy.

More Add-Ins

  • Cheese is a great addition, I love cheddar but really any cheese you have on hand is good in this recipe..
  • Add in diced peppers, bacon bits, sliced mushrooms, chopped tomatoes, sliced onions, or even small cubes of ham.
  • If using veggies like peppers or mushrooms, microwave them for about 20-30 seconds to cook them and remove some of the liquid.
  • Microwave mug omelettes are great for using up leftovers!
