Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but that doesn’t mean you have to labor over a hot stove for half an hour just to get a healthy meal on the table. This egg in a mug breakfast is simple, easy and takes less than two minutes from start to finish.
It’s a Complete Meal
Healthy protein and veggies for breakfast? That’s a win in my book! This egg in a mug is the easiest healthy breakfast you can imagine.
It’s Fast and Easy to Make
The morning struggle is real. Trying to work a healthy breakfast into the morning routine shouldn’t feel impossible.
You can whip up these scrambled eggs in a cup in just 60 seconds in the microwave. It doesn’t get easier than that!
You Can Have It Your Way
Everyone gets the breakfast they want when you make an egg in a mug. Take out the spinach, add chopped ham, use your favorite type of cheese… get creative with your breakfast!
Clean up is a Breeze
Wash your mug and fork and you’re done! No frying pans and spatulas and mixing bowls to pile up in the kitchen sink for later.
Can I just microwave a whole egg?
Scrambled eggs work the best for an egg in a mug breakfast. (Don’t microwave an egg in its shell. It may explode – which will make a huge mess and ruin your morning!)
Do I have to use a mug?
You can use a cup, a bowl, or a glass dish (like Pyrex). Just make sure it’s microwave safe. The size and shape of the dish can affect cooking times, so monitor closely.
How do I know when the eggs are fully cooked?
Jiggle your mug after cooking and the eggs should be just barely set. If they’re runny, microwave for 10 more seconds and check again. You don’t want to overcook the eggs or they can taste dry and rubbery.
How do I keep the eggs from sticking to the mug?
Remember to spray your mug with a spritz of cooking oil to make your mug non-stick – this makes clean up even easier!
Can I cook more than one egg at a time?
Yes, but you’ll probably need a bigger dish (like a microwave-safe bowl). Only increase the cooking time in 10-15 second increments and check in between to see if the eggs are cooked.
The more eggs you cook, the more results may vary based on the size and shape of the dish you use and the power of your microwave.

Spray the mug to coat the inside.
Whisk the egg and water together and then pour into the mug. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir.
Place into the microwave for 30 seconds and then stir. Place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
