Omelet In A Mug

Talk about simple. This is seriously as easy as it gets. Super fast and a great breakfast for when you're in a rush!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Whatever fillings you'd like. You can't go wrong with bacon, green pepper, cheese or ham. 


Crack both eggs into mug. Add water. Stir together and season with salt and pepper. Add any other desired fillings. Microwave 1-2 minutes. You're good to go!


Pizza In A Mug

Don't knock it until you try it, maybe it sounds weird at first, but it's so good! A little doughy and completely customizable, yum!


  • Refrigerated Biscuits
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Cheese
  • Whatever toppings you'd like! (Pineapple, ham, pepperoni, olives, etc.)


Spray the inside of your mug with non-stick spray. Place the biscuit in the bottom of the mug. Microwave for 30 seconds. Add 2 tsp of pizza sauce, cheese and toppings to top of biscuit. Microwave for 1 more minute. 


Pancake In A Mug

Make this pancake in a mug and all you need is some bacon on the side! This one is super easy and tastes even better drenched in syrup and Nutella.


  • 1/2 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/2 Cup "just add water" pancake mix
  • 3 Tablespoons water


Combine all ingredients in you mug. Microwave for 1 1/2- 3 minutes. Add syrup, peanut butter, or Nutella (or all 3 - no judgements here). 

Peanut Butter Brownie

Okay, wow. This is incredible and beautiful. You need to try this one!


  • 1/4 c . sugar
  • 1/4 c . flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp . cocoa I used dark chocolate Hershey's
  • 2 tbsp . oil
  • 1/4 c . water
  • 1 tbsp . peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp . vanilla


Add the dry ingredients in a mug and stir ( large mug is best because it will rise). Add wet ingredients and combine well. Add peanut butter and push it into the center of the mixture. Microwave for 60 seconds. Eat it and cry because it's so delicious!
