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!

  • Crack eggs into mug and top with ricotta cheese, tomatoes, and basil; season with salt, pepper, and oregano.

  • 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.

This was seriously a great breakfast! I cut everything in half for one small serving for me. I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta and it worked great. I loved the Italian flavors and used an Italian cheese blend on top. For the picture I cut 2 grape tomatoes in half and made into a heart shape for a Valentine theme. I will be making this for breakfast again!:) Read More

Made mine in a soup mug and with Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate mix microwaved for 2mins. Inverted the mug over a plate and the cake "plopped" down about 5mins later. Perfectly scrumptious as a quick treat. Will consider placing a cupcake liner inside the mug next time. Read More
