Omelet in a Mug

Yes you can make an omelet in a mug! It is so easy and the eggs come out so light and fluffy! Make it just the way you like it!


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!

Microwaveable Mug Omelet


  • It should be noted that the carb count given in the recipe card below is strictly for the eggs, water, salt and pepper. Anything you add into the recipe will potentially add to the carb count. These are strictly ideas for you. Please use your own trustable nutritional calculator to figure out the carb count for every add-in you decide to use in your omelet.
  • It’s important to use a microwave-safe mug when making an omelet in the microwave. Avoid using mugs with metallic accents or ones that are not marked as microwave-safe. A standard 8-ounce mug should work well.
  • The cooking time can vary depending on the power of your microwave, but generally 1 to 2 minutes on high should be sufficient. Check the omelet after 1 minute and continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until the eggs are set.
  • It is safe to cook eggs in the microwave as long as you use a microwave-safe mug and cook them for the appropriate amount of time. However, be careful when removing the mug from the microwave as it will be hot.
  • You can add any fillings you like to your microwave omelet, such as shredded cheese, chopped vegetables, diced ham or bacon, cooked sausage, or herbs and spices. Please note as I said above, these will potentially add to the carb count.

    I am 5 weeks post op (sleeve) with a maximum daily allowance of 25g of fat.
    This omelette has 24g of fat, and as such is completely unsuitable for a bariatric diet.

    1. Ian, this recipe was not specified for a bariatric diet. Nowhere do I say this is specifically for a bariatric diet. It says low carb because it is. I mention this at least 3 times in the recipe that if you are just using the base recipe of eggs and water, it is very low carb. You can add whatever you want to the eggs to make it suit your needs. I added onion and green peppers, etc which affects carb count. You can add nothing.

    1. Ok to use milk. I have been making these for years. If you have a newer high powered microwave (1100 watt) decrease your setting to 70 or 80 % to prevent the eggs from exploding.

  2. 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!
