Mug recipes: Morning edition

I’m not a huge breakfast eater, but I thought I would feature this interesting recipe that a friend Maggie shared on facebook. It was the second time in the last week someone mentioned eggs in a mug to me so I thought some of you might find it interesting! It’s not the simplest recipe, but it could be an interesting weekend feat.


1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 scallion, chopped

1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 avocado, diced

2 tablespoons salsa

1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped

Dash of Tabasco sauce

1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese

1 large egg

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground

black pepper

5 to 6 tortilla chips

Sour cream, for serving


In a jumbo mug, combine the oil, scallion, tomato, cumin, and heat in the microwave for 1 minute until scallion is translucent and the tomato softened. Stir in the avocado, salsa, cilantro, Tabasco, cheese, egg, salt, and pepper.

Insert the tortilla chips and nestle them down into the egg mixture. Microwave for another 1 to 2 minutes until the egg has set. Serve immediately with a dollop of sour cream.

There you have it! A fancy breakfast in a mug to start your morning off with a kick. I love spicy foods so I’m thinking this will be more of a brunch at noon when I wake up on Sunday kind of meal, if you know what I mean.
