3 Microwave Mug Recipes


#1: Omelet in a Mug


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. milk or water

Toppings (Optional):

  • Shredded cheese
  • Chopped onion
  • Chopped bell pepper
  • Crumbled bacon, sausage or chopped ham
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Spray a large mug with nonstick cooking spray. Crack eggs into mug. Add milk; beat with fork until well mixed.
  2. Microwave 1 minute. Sprinkle with desired toppings. Microwave 30-60 seconds or until egg is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Serve and enjoy.

Yield: 1 serving


#2. Mac and Cheese in a Mug


  • ½ cup whole grain elbow macaroni noodles
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup broccoli, finely chopped
  • ½ Tbsp. garlic powder
  • ½ cup finely shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Add noodles, milk, broccoli and garlic powder to an over-sized mug. Place mug on a large, microwave-safe plate and microwave for one minute; stir; microwave an additional minute and stir again. Continue to microwave and stir in 30 second increments until noodles are cooked.
  2. Immediately add cheese and stir until it completely coats the noodles. Finely shredded cheese should melt right away. For thicker shredded cheese, microwave an additional 20 seconds to melt cheese. Serve and enjoy immediately.
