2-Minute Omelet in a Mug
This 2 minute omelet in a mug can be personalized for every member of your family!
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 2 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 TBSP Real bacon bits
  • 2 TBSP Shredded cheese
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. Put butter in the bottom of your microwave-friendly mug, coffee cup or container.
  2. Melt butter in mug in microwave.
  3. Swirl the melted butter to lightly coat the sides of the mug for easier omelet removal after cooking.
  4. Add heavy whipping cream to help cool the melted butter.
  5. Add eggs, bacon bits, shredded cheese and whatever other optional omelet ingredients desired.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Mix well with a dinner fork.
  8. Cook in microwave for 1 minute.
  9. Remove, stir until the partially cooked eggs are evenly distributed with those remaining uncooked.
  10. Replace in microwave and cook 1 more minute.
  11. Remove from microwave. The omelet will deflate slightly, this is normal.
  12. You can eat directly out of the mug (be CAREFUL it stays HOT for some time!) or run a butter knife around the outside of the omelet and invert onto a plate to serve.

NOTE: When making multiple omelets I usually melt the butter together as pictured above BUT I cook them one at a time to insure even cooking. if you want to try cooking them together you will need to adjust timing.

To make it easier I always have real bacon bits and shredded cheese in my refrigerator.  I can literally just throw one together whenever I want!
It’s a great idea for a quick breakfast and it keeps your carbs super low! Just remember if you add additional items to account for and count those extra carbs.  

Note that while I melt the butter in however many mugs I am making all at one time I do cook mine one at a time to insure even cooking. If you are going to try to microwave the omelets together chances are you will need to adjust your cooking time. If you do please leave me a comment below and let me know how many watts your microwave is and how long you cook them. I would love to know!  

In the meantime that’s it from me!
