I have a confession: I’m always egg-tremely late in the mornings.
But it’s not totally my fault! The usual happens: homework piles up, classes end late, I need to hand in that one assignment on turnitin by 11:59 pm, and the bed is such a nice, comfy, warm cocoon of blankets and pillows in the morning that I just don’t wanna leave…
That’s exactly what I look like trying to stay awake in class the morning after. And it doesn’t help that I won’t be able to focus on an empty stomach. So you can just imagine how egg-static I was when I learned about omelettes that can be made in a mug!
And the best part? This omelette can be cooked and ready to eat at home or on the go in 5 minutes!
Approximately half a mug of shredded cheese
Salt and Pepper
How to Do the Do:
Pro Tip! Spread a bit of butter on the insides of the mug to prevent the egg from sticking to the sides!
Crack the eggs into the mug. Whisk lightly until mixed.
Sprinkle the cheese evenly into the mug. Add as much salt and pepper as you like.
Put the mug into the microwave for 20 – 30 seconds. Stir the contents of the mug slightly once it’s done microwaving, and put it back in for a second round.
Microwave again for 30 – 50 more seconds. (To keep the boredom at bay, here’s some stuff you can do in under a minute)
Presenting my egg-ceptional mug omelette! (with peppers)
I’ve got no more egg-scuses for being late to class anymore, that’s for sure…
But who knew mugs could be such a life saver? Aside from holding that warm coca we’ll need very soon as the weather gets colder, making a fast omelette is now totally possible and even a little fun! Shocking, eh?
But that’s not all- if you’re interested in trying out some slightly more complicated mug-related treats, check out this quick and tasty Cookie in a Mug recipe! It’s perfect to bring to the couch for a late-night movie session or just to have it on your desk as motivation to get through the latest assignment.
With that in mind, I’ve got great egg-spectations for making future meals with my mug.

Until next time, keep munchin’, everybody!
