Most people survive on coffee for breakfast because it’s easy to grab a mug and fill it up, but what if we tell you making breakfast can be just as easy. Like your morning brew, gather up some ingredients and mix them in a mug to prepare a one-dish wonder that will make your day. These recipes are not only delicious but are also easy to make. No need to stand by the stove when you’re flipping an egg or pancake, just set the microwave timer and get ready for the sumptuous breakfast coming your way.

Eggs in a Mug



2 eggs 2 tbsp milk 2 tbsp shredded cheese salt, pepper, and any other herbs


Pick a microwave safe mug and coat it with some cooking spray or oil. Add the eggs and milk and beat the mixture till it blends. Microwave the egg mix for 45 seconds on high and then stop to stir it. Add in the cheese, salt and pepper to the mix and stir again. Microwave it till the eggs are set to a texture you desire. This should take another 30 to 40 seconds.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal



3 tablespoons rolled oats 6 tbsp water 2 tbsp milk 2 tsp smooth peanut butter 2 tsp strawberry Jelly


Add all the ingredients, except the jelly in a large mug. Place it in a microwave and set the timer to 1 minute. Stop and stir and then cook again for another minute. Again, stop and stir and allow it to continue cooking for a few more seconds - the stirring will prevent the mixture from overheating and spilling. In between you can add some more milk if you think it’s a little too thick. All in all, it shouldn’t take more than 3 minutes of cook time. Top it up with the strawberry jelly and enjoy your delicious oatmeal. Also Read: The Best Places to Get Coffee in India Cover Image and Images Courtesy:
