Microwave Breakfasts in a Mug

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

It’s time for more Mug Meals and this time it’s 3 breakfasts you probably didn’t know you could make in the microwave!!! Pop Tart in a Mug, Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal and Burrito in a Mug (Mugrito).

Breakfast has got to be the one meal that you never really know what you want or have the time to make it. I’m really bad at deciding what I want for breakfast, but one thing is for sure whatever it is I want it fast, and that’s why Mug Breakfasts are so great.

My Pop Tart in a Mug is something that is normally cooked in a toaster for breakfast but I’ll show you how good it is from the microwave!

Oatmeal is my go-to breakfast. I like to think of it as central heating for your body. Now, day in and day out, Oatmeal can start to get a bit boring, that’s why I like to give mine a little pizazz. I gave my Oatmeal a makeover and filled it full of the flavors of a Cinnamon Roll! Cinnamon inside and cream cheese sweetness on the outside. Let’s face it, if your breakfast doesn’t come with frosting on top you’re not living.

Don’t want sweet? How about a Burrito in a Mug? It is equally as good as one from a taqueria, except it will be cheaper and you are in control of what ingredients went in. You know those times you have leftover cooked sausage, rice or potatoes from last night’s dinner? Add those to your breakfast burrito. No waste and no fuss.

 

1. Pop Tart in a Mug

Just because they started in a toaster doesn’t mean we can’t change things up and pop them into the microwave. Find my Pop Tart in a Mug recipe here.

    I made the oatmeal but I want to ask how long you can keep it in the fridge.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2016 at 1:29 pm

      I wouldn’t recommend keeping the oatmeal in the fridge after it’s been cooked. If you want, you can prepare it in a mug and keep it in the fridge till you plan to cook it. Hope this helps 🙂

  2. RACHEL on July 7, 2016 at 4:36 pm

    Hi Gemma. Looks amazing! How do I avoid getting rubbery eggs in the microwave?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2016 at 10:39 pm

      That comes form overcooking.Honestly, ‘undercook’ the eggs a little and then let them sit for 5 minutes and they will cook more. Eggs continue cooking once off the heat so you have to factor that in. Hope it helps 🙂

        i made a burrito and a muffin in the microwave

        • Profile photo of veronicakittypaw veronicakittypaw on August 24, 2016 at 12:40 pm

          my burrito got a little saggy but it tasted great

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on August 25, 2016 at 1:16 am

          Hi Veronica,
          That is great, may have slightly over-cooked the burrito??
          Happy to have you with us,
          gemma 🙂

    Where do you get all your cute mugs?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2016 at 10:58 pm

      Most come from Thrift stores Lauren, like charity shops and goodwill. I’m always on the look out for Old ‘New’ mugs 🙂

      • Deborah Yestramski on July 9, 2016 at 12:57 pm

        I use crocks, like those for French onion soup…they work great!

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 9, 2016 at 1:31 pm

          Ha ha Deborah,
          Yes, I think that will work really well, the wide mouth on the bowl helps to distribute the heat, well done you!
          Gemma 🙂

  4. Viji on July 7, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    Thanks Gemma for the delicious easy break-fast recipes. Could you please post an egg less burrito recipe for the vegetarians.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 8, 2016 at 2:15 am

      Hi Viji,
      I will add that idea to my list. Thank you,

    Great ! But one question : How do you make to be so slender with all these good récopés ?!… 😉

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2016 at 10:41 pm

      LOL, I try and eat in moderation and I don’t snack. Also I exercise every day 🙂

      Thanks so much Corinne 🙂

  7. Monica on July 8, 2016 at 12:56 am

    For the pop tart, instead of strawberry, I put in some homemade jelly like lemon curd.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 8, 2016 at 2:13 am

      Hi Monica,
      Lemon curd is egg based when it is home made. I am not sure that this will stand being re-cooked! Do try other jelly/jam, and a little experiment with the lemon curd, because it would be delicious,
      Gemma 🙂

  16. Hope Callahan on July 10, 2016 at 11:07 pm

    Hello Gemma! I was wanting to make a brown sugar cinnamon mug pop tart, but I’m not exactly sure what I would do to get that sugary crisp to it, considering that it might melt in the microwave. Any ideas? Thank you! ?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 11, 2016 at 1:52 am

      Hi Hope,
      Yes! that is the challenge with the microwave, you miss out on the crispness. The sugar will not actually have time to melt. A quick blast under the grill/broiler will crisp it but also further cook the roll, so you will need to manage this well, good luck,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma, i need your help, i will be having family over (with loads of kids) for a week and i want to make some desserts that i will make just the once and have it in the freezer or fridge that will last till they leave. I have your ice cream recipe covered i make that all the time but i need something for the adults too!
    Can you help? (The only recipes i haven’t tried are the microwave ones -don’t have one)
    Keep up the good work
    Thanks for always replying to us 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 11, 2016 at 1:23 pm

      Hi Mila,
      I would do the Best ever Chocolate cake. it is good and rich, so a little goes a long way. The chocolate brownies are great too, again a generous recipe, rich and delicious. serve small portions, it is rich! Have a great party,
      Gemma 🙂

  19. Srishti on July 12, 2016 at 9:24 am

    Gemma ma’am
    I have been watching your channel on YouTube and I am quite a fan of these mugmeals especially pasta ?. I have been trying mug CAKES but it’s not working out. The cake at first rises too much almost the batter flows out and then after some time and it has got a little bit of body it just sits down killing all the spongy texture. I don’t fill too much. What should I do?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 12, 2016 at 10:31 am

      Hi Srishti,
      It sounds like your microwave is higher wattage than mine. I would adjust this if possible, or alternatively blast cook, so, 30 secs, open the oven check the cake, close the oven 20 secs, open and check, until it is right. When you touch the top of the cake and it feels firm, it is done!
      Gemma 🙂

      • Srishti on July 13, 2016 at 9:31 pm

        Thanku so much?
        Keep baking ?

    I tried the poptart and it was delicious, I was out of strawberry jam so I used apricot jam and it was yummy! Thanks for more mug recipes love them all!! 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 13, 2016 at 1:48 pm

      Hi Danella,
      I love Apricot jam, it is one of my favorites, and a great store cupboard staple, for adding a glaze to a tart, as a crumb layer for a fruit cake yummy!
      I am happy that this worked for you,
      Gemma 🙂

    Mrs.gemma
    Actually I couldn’t find cream cheese here so is there any substitute for it
    And can I use jelly instead of jam

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 13, 2016 at 1:25 pm

      Hi Ashleyn,
      The cream cheese is a problem for lots of people. It is an American institution, so we forget that it is not always available everywhere else. Some people will use Ricotta, others will say use Greek/strained yogurt, though it depends on what you wish to use it for. I have not used these for cheesecakes, but may be useful in other recipes,
      Gemma 🙂

  23. Mila on July 13, 2016 at 3:20 pm

    Hi Gemma, will ice cream instead of whipped cream be ok in the Red Velvet Cake Roll ? how long will it last in the freezer?
    I tried the brownie ice cream sandwich, turned out great!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 14, 2016 at 7:55 am

      Hi Mila,
      Yes, this will work. Years ago there was a commercial product called Artic Roll, which was an ice cream roll, wrapped in a sponge. This is probably the best approach to this. Make a ‘sausage’ of the ice cream, and wrap the sponge around that. If well wrapped it will keep for 3 – 4 weeks in a domestic freezer.
      Gemma 🙂

  26. Joy on July 15, 2016 at 10:11 pm

    Hi Gemma, my daughter and I are stoked to try your breakfast mug meals! One question though, I just found out through reading the comments that your mugs are only 6-8 oz, they seemed bigger. We’ve already bought some 16 oz mugs to use, and they are wide mouth. Will they still work? Should I double the recipes? Can I?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 16, 2016 at 12:30 pm

      Hi Joy,
      that is what happens on camera, it adds weight, to me too!
      I use a small mug/cup. however what really matters is the wide mouth, this allows the heat to distribute properly, and the food to expand. i think it will work really well for you,
      Gemma 🙂

    I’ve been thinking about the mac and cheese for several days and finally made it this morning. It was very delicious! Nice consistency of ingredients. Smooth and creamy. Very satisfying. All in minutes. Now I want another mug of it. haha I used sharp cheddar and whole milk. I also want to try the herb biscuit or potato soup next. mmmmm
