You Can Make this Recipe with a Coffee Mug and a Microwave, and It's Awesome

Skip the dishes with this simple microwave and coffee cup mug hack

Customize this microwave coffee cup scramble whatever toppings you desire.

Ever noticed how cooking a full egg breakfast produces more dirty dishes than cooking lunch and dinner combined? We certainly have, so we have devised a way to make that egg breakfast with only a single coffee cup to wash when all that’s left are crumbs.

Click here for the 8 Things You Didn’t Know Your Microwave Could Do slideshow.

This Microwave Coffee Cup Scramble is soon to become your new favorite rushed weekday breakfast or lazy Sunday brunch recipe. Add toppings to your scramble like shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes, or ham, or make coffee cup version of huevos rancheros with the addition of salsa, chopped cilantro, and jalapeños.

To make this simple scramble, generously spray a 12-ounce microwave-safe coffee mug with non-stick cooking spray, add two eggs and two tablespoons of milk, and then beat the eggs with a fork. Microwave the eggs on high for 45 seconds, then stir. Microwave the eggs again for another 30 to 45 seconds or until set. Then top with cheese or other toppings, seasons with salt and pepper and serve.

Now you never need to wash another egg skillet again.

Perhaps you would like to re-think your math, or at least, double-check your sources. A tablespoon of oil has 120 calories, so obviously 3 tablespoons of oil is 360 calories. Not a skinny treat by any means, but not as evil as all that.

No pun intended, but lighten up, dear!

Just thought you would like to know that I calculated the calories in this. It is 1412. Ha, bet that'll make you think twice, thank the oil for that one, just the three tablespoons of oil alone has over 900!

And that's without any optional extras.

Any way to reduce the oil in this recipe? The 3 tablespoons really drives the calories up. Any suggestions on how to reduce or substitute for it?

Other than that, no complaints! Super delicious. I added fresh raspberries after it was done and it was amazing.

Perhaps you would like to re-think your math, or at least, double-check your sources. A tablespoon of oil has 120 calories, so obviously 3 tablespoons of oil is 360 calories. Not a skinny treat by any means, but not as evil as all that.

No pun intended, but lighten up, dear!

Just thought you would like to know that I calculated the calories in this. It is 1412. Ha, bet that'll make you think twice, thank the oil for that one, just the three tablespoons of oil alone has over 900!

And that's without any optional extras.

Any way to reduce the oil in this recipe? The 3 tablespoons really drives the calories up. Any suggestions on how to reduce or substitute for it?

Other than that, no complaints! Super delicious. I added fresh raspberries after it was done and it was amazing.
