Easy Egg in a Mug Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal and that basically gets inscribed in our brains at such an early age. It’s the fuel our body needs to get us going and on the right track to function at our best each day. Most mornings consist of eating leftover breakfast casserole, toast with avocado, cereal, donuts or some eggs with bacon.

Easy Egg in a Mug Breakfast

This easy Egg in a Mug Breakfast recipe is for those wanting a complete breakfast but in a fraction of time. Consider it an omelet in 1 minute and you can even make it at work in the microwave. That is if they allow you to eat at your desk but I know a lot of companies that don’t mind.

I combined some of my favorite ingredients for this egg in a mug recipe. I must start out with bacon because it’s one of my favorites. Nothing beats a crispy slice or two in the mornings. Then it’s off to eggs, bell pepper, spinach and of course some cheese. Now you can add your own favorite ingredients or even swap out the bacon for sausage.

To show you how easy it is to put together I made a quick video with the help from my sous chef (better known as my husband).
