Microwave Mug Omelette


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Diced vegetables (e.g., bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, or any other desired vegetables)
  • Shredded cheese (optional)
  • Chopped herbs (such as parsley or chives) for garnish (optional)


  • In a microwave-safe mug, crack the eggs and add the milk. Whisk the eggs and milk together until well combined. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste preference.
  • Add the diced vegetables of your choice to the mug, stirring to evenly distribute them in the egg mixture. Feel free to get creative with your vegetable combinations and quantities.
  • If desired, sprinkle some shredded cheese on top of the egg and vegetable mixture for added flavor and creaminess.
  • Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high power for 1-2 minutes, pausing every 30 seconds to stir the mixture. Stirring helps to distribute the heat and ensure even cooking. The omelette will gradually set as you microwave it.
  • After each stirring pause, check the consistency of the eggs. If the omelette is still runny, microwave for an additional 30 seconds or until the eggs are fully set. Be careful not to overcook the omelette, as it may become rubbery.
  • Once the eggs are cooked to your liking and no longer runny, carefully remove the mug from the microwave. Use oven mitts or a kitchen towel, as the mug may be hot.
  • Allow the Microwave Mug Omelette to cool for a minute or two before enjoying it directly from the mug or transferring it to a plate.
  • Garnish the omelette with chopped herbs like parsley or chives for an extra pop of freshness and flavor, if desired.


  • Protein Boost: Add cooked and crumbled bacon, diced ham, or leftover cooked chicken to the omelette for added protein.
  • Cheese Lover's Delight: Experiment with different types of shredded cheese, such as cheddar, mozzarella, or feta, to customize the flavor.
  • Spice it Up: Sprinkle some hot sauce, salsa, or your favorite spices, such as paprika or cayenne pepper, to add a kick to your omelette.
  • Mediterranean Twist: Incorporate ingredients like diced tomatoes, olives, and feta cheese for a Mediterranean-inspired omelette.
  • Veggie Power: Load up on various vegetables like spinach, mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions to make a nutritious and colorful omelette.

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave, so adjust accordingly to achieve your desired level of doneness.
