Breakfast(s) in a Mug

I do apologize for not posting anything for the past several days. I've been busy being mom and wife, and I also had a run in with the stomach bug. With the kitchen already most of the way cleaned up, and my husband out in his workshop doing his woodworking hobby, I saw the perfect opportunity to make a post or two. My kitchen hasn't had very many things happening in it except the basic ravioli, hamburgers, pancakes and other easy dinners. Speaking of EASY here are a few of our favorite hot breakfast mug recipes. You will see that there are lots of dashes of this and splashes of that, its hard to put an actual measurement when you're just making 1 or 2 servings.


Scrambled Eggs in a Mug
1 serving
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
Coat a microwave-safe coffee mug with cooking spray. Add eggs, milk and season with salt and pepper; beat until blended. (I asked for a mini whisk for Christmas last year just for this purpose) You can either add cheese now or add it right when you serve it.

Microwave 45 seconds, move all the cooked parts to the center. Microwave 30 to 45 seconds more, or until eggs are almost set.

Time to eat!


French Toast in a Mug
2 servings
  • 3 slices of Bread (whatever you have on hand, french bread, hamburger buns, use what you've got)
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
  • Dash of Cinnamon
  • Couple drops of Vanilla
  • tiny bit of Salt
  • Drizzle of syrup
Lightly spray or butter 2 coffee mugs. Tear up the bread and divide it between the two cups. In a small measuring cup with a pour spout add Egg, Milk, Vanilla, Cinnamon and Salt and blend, tiny whisk works great here too. Pour half into each mug. Microwave 1 at a time for 2 minutes. Drizzle with syrup and Enjoy!


Baked Oatmeal in a Mug
1 serving
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • Splash of Milk
  • Dash of Salt
  • Dash of Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Quick Oats
  • handful of blueberries or other fruit (optional)
Beat egg, brown sugar, milk, salt, cinnamon. Add oats and fruit (you can leave out the fruit if you choose to). Stir until all combined. Microwave for 2 minutes, check after 1 min 40 seconds. Serve plain or pour some milk on it.
