Egg in a mug
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.
- 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.
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.
