The Country Cook: Omelet in a Mug

Omelet in a Mug

Today I am sharing one of my favorite quick and easy breakfasts. We all love this because it can easily be tailored to our individual tastes and can be made simply or with all the fixins!
I am excited to share it because it is absolutely something you can make every day without a lot of fuss. Personally, for me, if I start the day with a protein-filled breakfast, then it makes me WAY less hungry for the rest of the day. So this is healthy but also super yummy. And, if you are on a low carb diet, then this is something you should definitely be making! I even made a video to show you just how simple. I'm getting better at this whole video-making stuff! Ha!

Microwaveable bacon works great in this too. Leftover ham is one of my personal favorites! Also, pre-cooked and sliced sausage links are super yum as well. The Eggland's Best eggs cook up so fluffy and soft. It's a great recipe for the kiddos too. My son makes his with just cheese and bacon or sausage added. 
1 tbsp. water
Optional fillings:
green peppers, finely diced
yellow onion, finely diced
ham, finely diced
bacon, crumbled
shredded cheddar cheese
Spray a microwave-safe mug with nonstick cooking spray. Crack 2 Eggland’s Best eggs into the mug. Add one tablespoon of water. Stir well with a fork. Season eggs with salt and pepper. Add in desired fillings. Microwave for 1-2 minutes (until eggs are cooked through and fluffy.)

  1. Love this! I get to work at 6am so i hardly ever have time for breakfast at home - this is going to help out so much. Breakfast at the office everyday...yay!

    1. Thanks so much Lin! I'm so glad this sounds like it will make your mornings a little easier. I know all about that early morning hustle - ha!
