Microwave Eggs in a Mug

I was skimming through some cooking magazines while on vacation this week and noticed these incredible and oh so simple eggs. Yes, it was an ad, and it got me.  I love scrambled eggs, so these microwave scrambled eggs immediately caught my attention.

Normally I’m somewhat of a snubber of microwave methods, but if you’ve ever been to Einstein Bagels and ordered one of their egg sandwiches you may have noticed that they cook the eggs in the microwave and they are actually delicious.

So, I thought this simple microwave method must work and I immediately gave it a try the first chance I had, even on vacation.  It’s true, I’m addicted to blogging. I was so excited about this eggs in a mug recipe find that I couldn’t resist the urge to share even on vacation.

I hope this mug recipe makes your life a little simpler so you’re not swapping out a fresh, warm, nutritious breakfast for some cardboard sugar filled “pastry” because it’s the only thing you have time to make.  You can make these microwave eggs nearly as quick as you can pour a bowl of cereal!

Can I Double This Recipe?

If you want to make more scrambled eggs in a mug, I suggest making two separate batches. You’ll either need to use a second mug or clean out the first one you used between batches.

The eggs puff up in the microwave, and if you added in more than two eggs I’m afraid they’d bubble over while cooking!

How Will I Know the Eggs Are Cooked?

The eggs will be set in the center once fully cooked. If you’re unsure, give the mug a giggle and see if the eggs wobble around a lot.

Tips for the Best Microwave Eggs

  • For best results, follow the recipe instructions exactly — mug size, number of eggs, everything!
  • If you take the scrambled eggs out of the mug and slice them, you can layer them on a bagel or croissant to make a breakfast sandwich.
  • You can also drizzle hot sauce or other toppings onto these scrambled eggs in a mug.
