Yup, I’m loving this easy, simple method of making a healthy breakfast. My regular breakfast is either steel-cut oatmeal in a mug (see my shortcut method) or Muffin in A Mug. I usually don’t have time (or am not awake enough) to fix eggs for breakfast, so they are a lunch or dinner option. I do love breakfast for supper. But then I found it…… Eggs in a Mug……yes !!
You can make them ‘simple’ with just salt & pepper or flavor with herbs. Any cheese adds great flavor to eggs. Want mexican ?? add cheese, salsa or leftover taco meat & black beans. Want veggie, add some spinach, chard, kale or any leftover you have in the fridge. Try sprinkling in a few bacon bits, a chopped turkey sausage or pieces of grilled chicken. Just about any leftovers works great. But if you’re feeling creative….go gourmet….add goat cheese & sun-dried tomatoes…..You can use just about any leftovers or you can create a gourmet breakfast in a minute. Try adding goat cheese, dried tomatoes & red onions or asparagus & mushrooms. The options are endless & you can start the day healthy, quick & easy.
Ever want your breakfast portable ?? How about a quick egg sandwich ?? Just use an individual ramekin or cereal bowl in place of the coffee mug. Wrap your cooked eggs in a tortilla or use a bagel, english muffin or toast. Wrap it in a paper towel & off you go.
There are so many options for eggs…..check out the Incredible Egg to find just about any and everything you want to make with eggs. Enjoy a healthy breakfast…it makes the day even better !!
Eggs in A Mug (adapted from the Incredible Egg)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp milk (I use almond milk or just water, for fluffier eggs)
- 2 Tbsp shredded cheddar cheese (optional, can be added during cooking)
- salt and pepper to taste
Spray a 12 oz. coffee mug with cooking spray or grease with butter. Add eggs and milk to mug and stir with a fork or whisk until well blended. Microwave mixture on high for 45 seconds then stir. Microwave again for 30 – 45 seconds longer until eggs are cooked through. Immediately sprinkle with optional cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
- you can easily half the recipe for just 1 egg in a mug
- if you add veggies than have been cooked in oil, don’t add the milk
- want fluffier eggs, add water instead of milk
- substitute unsweetened almond milk; just 30 calories a cup
