Recipe Tips

  • If you don’t have cream, you can replace this with two tablespoons of milk. This change will give you a less creamy mix, but it will be slightly healthier.
  • Shredded cheese goes great on top of the scrambled eggs. If you want it nice and melted, add it before you put the eggs in for the last 30 seconds.
  • You can add herbs such as dill, chives, and parsley for a few different flavor variations.
  • You can also add some shredded meats such as salami or ham to the scrambled egg mix if you’re looking to add a bit of meat.
  • It is important that you do keep an eye on the mug while it is in the microwave. The scramble mix may boil up and spill over the sides of the mug making a mess. To help avoid this just stop the microwave if it looks like it is just about to boil over.

    Toss in ham or bacon bits, chopped spinach, onions, or green pepper, diced tomatoes, or whatever else you can come up with, and create an omelet. (I usually use a bowl rather than a mug, though, and with the additives, it won’t cook quite as fast.)
