There are quite a few eggs - in - a - mug recipes out there, and they are all pretty much the same but with different veggie or cheese add - ins. If you have some leftover cooked broccoli, potatoes, spinach, or even mushrooms, they all work well using this method. My husband was skeptical at first when I told him how to do this, but now he makes this for himself quite often.

This sounds so quick and easy! I'm often rushed in the morning and end up skipping breakfast, but this sounds like an awesome solution!

I can't wait to try it!

Make this all the time when I'm in a rush to get out the door. So good. I've even used water in place of milk as I ran out..

I'm glad I can use water. I rarely have milk )

I make this all the time now. I love it! My kids are divided on this one. I love putting a little salsa on top, it's delicious. I can't wait to try this with all kinds of fresh veggies thrown in, cut into small pieces. The first few times I made it, I used heavy cream instead of milk, because I had an open cream that needed to go. It was fluffier that way I think. But it's delicious either way.

This is the "only" way I scramble an egg now for my youngest son before school. I prepare the cup with egg and milk and wait for him to tell me he is ready to eat (Junior) then I put it in the microwave and push his toast down in the toaster. He loves it this way and it is so simple. I have been doing it this way for about a year now. Did not believe it at first that it would be as good as it is.....but he loves it

Gunna Have To Fix That For Breakfast Today !!!

Wow... I just made this. Who knew that breakfast could be this easy! I added diced deli ham, onion powder, and the salt & pepper in the initial mix. Then I microwaved. I have seen several recipes like this and I have always wanted to try them. I am glad that I tried this one because I really enjoyed the fluffy flavor. I will be making this often!

Does anyone have an idea of how to prepare this a little bit ahead of time to take to work when you work early mornings? Any Help will be appreciated

You can place eggs and milk in a small plastic container and whisk them and place cheese in a small baggie and take to work to microwave there.

Another idea that is awesome is just spray the mug, drop in an egg, stir just a little then cook in microwave and it will slide out of the mug in a perfect circle then place on a lightly buttered english muffin, place a piece of cheese on top the egg then top of the muffin and wrap in paper towel and back in for a few seconds to melt the cheese. Perfect Egg McMuffin.

this is a great recipe - great source of protein and great when u dont want to get the fry pan out - less to clean up afterwards.

This is a great way to get your kids to eat eggs....served in their own "special mug!"

I have used the same recipe, using Egg Beaters. But, I never put any thing else in it. I must try it soon. Maybe for lunch, today!!

I just made this. It is a great way to make a quick breakfast without the mess! The eggs came out great and I added a little bacon bits and a slice of cheese to mix in. No added salt, the bacon and cheese added enough. Very tasty. Will make again. Mine cooked in 45/30/30.

Wait! The best part(s) are left out- You can put a handful of 'real' bacon-ohs' or diced fine ham pieces in the egg(s) prior to waving them. As most cheese has plenty of salt in, you may want to experiment with adding "no" salt.


Great Idea can't wait to try it

WOW, GREAT IDEA! wii try this for sure,and will pass it on to my grand kids. thank you..Donna Platt

Couldn't view the video. Would like to see it when available. It sounds easy.
