Hi Bold Bakers!

My stomach, unlike myself is very impatient. If you tell me I can have some of my favorite snacks fast and it cooks in a microwave I am in. The result is an amazing, soft and buttery savory muffin.

This savory Microwave Cheddar & Bacon Muffin in a Mug is the perfect single serving portion for when that 3 o’clock slump hits or you just fancy a quick treat for yourself. It will fill you up but still leave room for dinner. It’s full of flavor and good ingredients.

Special thanks to The TODAY Show and Today.com for making this recipe possible for you. Make sure you WATCH the recipe video and get the full written recipe below.

The cook time I gave is based on my microwave which heats at 1200 Watts. I always suggest keeping a close eye on your mug meal when cooking as over cooking can make them rubbery instead of soft like they should be.

Learn how to make a Cheddar & Bacon Muffin in a Mug, another one of my Mug Meal recipes where you can make real food fast!
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder (optional)
  • teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon (1/4 oz/ 9g) butter, cubed
  • tablespoons milk (or buttermilk)
  • 1 tablespoon bacon
  • 1 tablespoon cheese

Instructions

  • In a microwavable mug, mix together the flour, baking powder, onion powder and salt
  • Using your fork, incorporate the cubed butter into the dry ingredients. When done it will resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the milk, bacon and cheese until your mix forms a batter
  • Microwave for roughly 45 seconds - 1 minute (this timing is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary)
  • Enjoy warm!

Recipe Notes

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)
Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
Add in all the milk. It will make a wet batter but the wetter it is the softer your muffin.

Very yummy. I added extra cheese on top as well as dried Italian herbs and made it with fake bacon. I found it extremely filling and had to eat it in two parts.

I used the garlic powder and it came out really good. I put in more coconut milk for a softer batter and then stored it in the mug with plastic wrap so I could have it ready to make in the morning. It came out really good. Thanks for the mug recipe.

Made this tonight so all I have to do is microwave it for tomorrow for breakfast. LOL. I need a few more breakfast mug meals, so I can’t wait to try it with my morning coffee.

I did not have onion powder so used l/2 tsp of dried onions. A good flavor with the parsley, cheese and bacon

Can I use garlic powder instead of onion? I may try this this week. It looks really good.
