Margherita Mug Eggs

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"I make eggs in a mug quite often. It's easy and so versatile you can add pretty much anything that's in your fridge! Try it with ham, swiss and asparagus! Or maybe those cooked frozen sausages cut up with peppers and onions! You can even top it with pizza sauce and pepperoni!"

  1. Brush the inside of a microwave-safe mug with butter.
  2. Crack eggs into mug and top with ricotta cheese, tomatoes, and basil; season with salt, pepper, and oregano.
  3. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute; stir and continue cooking in 15-second intervals, until set, about 1 minute more. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over eggs.


  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe is meant to be an easy weekday breakfast, you can make it and take the mug on the go, but if you want to make a pretty presentation, you can remove the eggs from the mug, plate and garnish with fresh basil, tomato, and Parmesan.
