I have a super fun (and easy) recipe for you today! It’s breakfast in a mug – and I’m not just talking about coffee. I’m thinking coffee in one mug and an omelet in the other!!!
This post and amazing recipe is sponsored by Lone Star Eggs. Because, Texas.
What you’ll need for one breakfast mug:
- 2 Lone Star Eggs
- 2 Tablespoons Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Chopped Green Onions
- 1 Tablespoon Bacon Bits
- A Pinch Of Shredded Cheese
Crack the eggs into the bottom of a large mug. They expand as you cook them, so you want to make sure there is an inch or two of extra room in the mug once all the ingredients are together.
Pour in the milk and beat together with a fork, until mixed. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir slightly.
Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Take the mug out, mix it a bit more and then continue microwaving for one more minute. If the eggs are not fully cooked, you can continue cooking them in 20 second increments until done.
Take out, and enjoy!
We love this recipe for early mornings. I hate waking up and cooking a huge meal first thing, but this recipe allows us to start the day with a protein filled and non-sugary breakfast, while taking less than FIVE minutes to prepare (and only dirtying one dish!).
It’s awesome using Lone Star Eggs for this recipe too, since they are locally sourced Texas eggs! I live in the lone star state, and I’m pretty sure there is no other state with quite as much state pride! There are so many cool places to travel (like San Antonio) and it’s a fabulous place to live. I have lived here for over half of my life and Texas is by far my favorite state. The distinct lack of winter in the southern part of the state where I live is a definite plus!
I get my Lone Star Eggs from Wal-Mart, so it’s perfect for getting my local eggs, without having to make an extra stop!
Do you have hectic mornings but need a quick breakfast that’s not filled with sugar? Let me know if you try the breakfast in a mug that I’ve made! Or if you add your own ingredients. I want to try it with mushrooms and onions next time!
