Oh how I miss eggs. I’m currently nursing a toddler who is deathly allergic to eggs. She’s so allergic to eggs we have to keep an Epi-Pen nearby at all times. If I eat them, the egg protein still makes it way into my milk, and while her reaction isn’t deadly, it’s still pretty awful.
Sometimes I dream of making a quick batch of eggs in the morning. As soon as she weans, I’m probably going to eat a plateful of eggs. I can’t wait!
One thing you can make in a mug in a microwave in less than 2 minutes is some delicious scrambled eggs. You can even turn them into a cheesy omelet or a veggie omelet with extra ingredients.
I prefer my eggs totally plain with a little bit of salt, so that’s usually what I make me. But, my husband and teenagers love omelets, so if I have veggies I add some onions, bell peppers, and something like cilantro or parsley. If we’re out of vegetables, I stick to cheese. Cheddar cheese is one of their favorites in a quick mug of eggs.
Here’s how to easily make Scrambled Eggs in a Mug:
You can add all kinds of things to eggs. An omelet is a great way to use up leftovers like rotisserie chicken or ham or even bacon bits. Just chop it up and mix it up into the eggs.
If you keep a bag of frozen veggies to make a quick stir fry in the microwave, they are also great in an omelet. Or if you have a bottle of chunky salsa in the fridge, that’s a great addition, too.
This is a great recipe to experiment with and see what tastes great mixed with your eggs. You might find a delicious combination you’d never expect.
You can make regular scrambled eggs, cheesy scrambled eggs, and even an omelet in a mug!
