These mug omelets are as easy as one, two, three: one mug, two minutes, three base ingredients (…and zero stovetops required— woohoo!). Each bite is packed with satiating protein, brain-boosting choline, and nutrient-rich veggies. You can use whatever you have in your fridge and leftovers are encouraged. Plus, for added flavor and deliciousness, feel free to toss in your favorite herbs and spices. For an Italian-inspired omelet, opt for fresh or dried basil and oregano. Prefer Mexican flavors? Add cilantro, cumin and smoked paprika. And, if you’re a fellow hothead (when it comes to spice, that is), drizzle on some fiery hot sauce. This mug-nificent omelet is ideal for breakfast in a hurry or a snack in a pinch!

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • • 1 large egg plus 2 large egg whites*
  • • 3 heaping tablespoons finely diced veggies (*whatever’s in your fridge; I used red onion, bell pepper and spinach)
  • • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese (or grated cheddar)
  • • Pinch salt and pepper (and any preferred herbs or seasonings)*You can use 2 whole eggs if you prefer

Mist the inside of a (12-ounce) microwave-safe mug with oil spray. Add the egg and egg whites and whisk together. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until well combined.

Place the mug in the microwave, uncovered, and cook for 45 seconds. Remove and stir contents with a fork. Microwave for another 45 seconds. Remove and stir again. Microwave one last time for 30 more seconds, stirring at the 15-second mark and checking for doneness. Season with salt, pepper and herbs to taste!
