Quick Quiche in a Mug Recipe
Did you know that eating a protein rich breakfast can help you feel fuller and cut cravings throughout the day? Yep, apparently the brain messages responsible for telling you to eat chocolate cake or candy bars at 3 pm are reduced by protein. Who knew? This Quick Quiche in a Mug Recipe might help.
Now, I am not opposed to the idea of eating (gluten free) chocolate cake at 3 pm but if I do it I want to do it because I really want the cake not because my brain is telling me to.
One of the simplest and least expensive ways to pack protein into your breakfast is with eggs. And just one egg provides women with 14 percent of their daily required protein intake.
Now I will be the first to admit that the idea of heating up the stove, getting out a skillet, and cooking up eggs on a busy Wednesday morning, then washing up the skillet, the dishes … well it can be a bit daunting, especially if my morning caffeine hasn’t kicked in yet.
My solution? This Quick Quiche recipe. Simple, fast, and you cook and eat in one dish – a mug.
This recipe is really more of a guideline. You can switch it up with your favorites. Just start with a couple cage-free eggs (I like Nature’s Yoke) and some milk or dairy-free milk and from there – just mix in what you like and have on hand then microwave it for about a minute.
- 1 teaspoon butter or dairy free butter
- 2 large cage-free eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk or dairy free milk
- 6 grape tomatoes halved
- 1 tablespoon grated cheese of your choice optional
- 1 tablespoon chopped ham
- 1 teaspoon fresh herbs minced (chives, parsley, basil, etc.)
- Pinch kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Put the butter in a microwavable mug and microwave on high power for about 10 seconds or until melted. Add the eggs, milk, tomatoes, cheese, ham, herbs, salt, and pepper. Whisk with a fork to combine. Microwave for another minute or until the egg is set.
