Making scrambled eggs in a mug in the microwave has been a huge lifesaver for my kids when they just want something hot and fast to eat in the morning. Crack the eggs in a mug, scramble, and microwave for about 40 seconds. Boom! Breakfast is served!
And if you want to get really fancy, add an english muffin and a slice of cheese to make homemade Egg McMuffins. All of a sudden you’re the mom of the year!
You can make this delicious and healthy breakfast sandwich at home in under two minutes and for under a dollar! That’s a little better than waiting ten minutes in the drive-thru only to fork over $5 for breakfast!

You literally only need TWO INGREDIENTS to make scrambled eggs in a mug! Plus a microwave, and who doesn’t have one of those nowadays?
1 Egg – I recommended cooking just one egg at a time
Nonstick cooking spray – to help the egg slide right out after cooking.
Coffee mug – your mug does need to be microwave safe. You could also use a small glass measuring cup.
Yes, absolutely! Just whisk them up in a bowl and pop them in the microwave. Fluffy scrambled eggs any time!
It only takes about 30-40 seconds to microwave a scrambled egg. Keep in mind that microwave wattages vary, so you’ll have to test yours – it might take a few seconds more or less.
It’s not necessary. I have found that I get fluffy eggs in the microwave without any of these additions. However you can add them if you want to.
These scrambled eggs take less than a minute to prepare, but you could actually prepare several at a time and freeze or make sandwiches to freeze ahead.
Prepare the sandwich as desired with english muffins, egg, ham and cheese. Let them cool completely, then wrap tightly in foil and pop them into a freezer bag. They’ll last in the freezer about 3 months.
To reheat from frozen, place the wrapped sandwiched in a 350 degree oven and heat for 5-10 minutes or until fully heated through.
