This omelette in a mug is incredible! If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’ve been a bit obsessed with mug recipes! Just one of many microwave recipes on our site. (originally published 2/17, affiliate links present)

Eggs in a Mug

You can make it simple with just cheese and a pinch of bacon bits, or load it up with your favorite additions like sausage and mushroom like we did here. Either way you make this easy breakfast in a mug recipe it’s a winner for any age.

My kids absolutely love being able to cook a quick treats like this strawberry cake in a mug or chocolate chip cookie in a mug after school. My teens will try all sorts of things and this was one when they were craving something savory one morning. Yay them for sharing!

Microwave Egg in a Cup

I don’t know about you but my kiddos really need something hearty in the morning that will stick with them until snack time which is mid afternoon. A lot of times a piece of toast or cereal doesn’t really cut it. I don’t always have time to make Crockpot scrambled eggs so this one is great.

  • Occasionally they will make a minute cinnamon roll in a mug.
  • When I want them (or me) to load up on protein this is a perfect breakfast mug recipe.

You really just whip up 2 eggs, add your ingredients, microwave, add cheese, microwave again, and then enjoy!!I bought these already cooked sausages at the store so they are in the fridge and they can microwave them beforehand for 15 seconds.

Microwave Egg Whites

You can separate and just use the whites for less calories and fat, or use the whole thing like we do. Dice them, add to their mug along side their other favorite items like bacon bits (already cooked and diced in a bag in the fridge too) so everything is handy and it can be cooked really quickly.

  • A lot of times I make this breakfast in a mug recipe for lunch since I work from home and it tides me over until dinner.

Pair it with our pancake in a mug and what a meal!

  • If you wanted it simple with just salt and pepper you could opt for that too.
