Cooking Tips

  • The egg mix will rise so keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t overflow and cause a mess.
  • If you find your omelette has tons of water around it, then this means the egg was overcooked. To avoid this try cooking it for less time.
  • The extras such as ham and the red bell pepper can easily be swapped out for other ingredients. For example, you could swap the ham for salmon, the bell pepper for spinach and add a bit of dill.
  • Microwaves can vary by quite a bit on how fast they can cook. You may find you will need to adjust the cooking time slightly. Doing in 30-second bursts should help prevent overcooking.
  • The mug is likely to be hot when you go to grab it out of the microwave. It’s important to use caution so that you can avoid any nasty burns.
