Make-Ahead Microwave Mug Meals for Real Food Fast!

Make Ahead Microwave Mug Meals

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

I am proud to say I have created almost 100 mug recipes! From classic mug cakes like my Microwave Mug Brownie to more savory favorites like Mug Pizza, I love creating and sharing new Mug Meals. While my Mug Meals are truly real food fast, I thought there might be a way for even the busiest person to enjoy a great meal anytime…so that’s why I created Make Ahead Microwave Mug Meals.

Just like you, I love to cook and insist on eating homemade wholesome food but don’t always have the time to cook a meal from start to finish. While this dilemma can be discouraging I have a super bold and fun way to meal prep also known as meal prep in a mug! With this idea in mind Make Ahead Microwave Mug Meals were born.

These recipes for Make Ahead Microwave Mug Meals are some of my favorite dinners, sweet treats and breakfasts all made in a little mug that sit perfectly in the fridge ready for you to micro-bake it off. From Make Ahead Fettuccini Alfredo in a Mug to a Make Ahead Mug Blondie, these recipes have got you and your family covered! Click on the links below to find your new favorites and even plan an entire week of Mug Meals!

You will love having this Make Ahead Microwave Mug Chili on hand. It’s protein rich and full of vegetables, so it’s the perfect thing to prep over the weekend and eat all week. Get my Microwave Mug Chili recipe.

    Hi Gemma I just wanted some help with my mug cakes, I have tried several different ones (red velvet,coffee,churro) I follow the exact recipe but they come out really dense and dry my microwave power is 1200 wats

    • Gemma Stafford on September 6, 2017 at 8:23 pm

      Hi Farwa,
      ok so don’t worry. Try again and just cook it off for 45 seconds and then check it. It will probably be cooked. It sounds like they are being over microwaved, that’s all it is 🙂

  5. Sidhpuri K on September 4, 2017 at 12:07 am

    I already tried the blondie and it was awesome. I really want a recipe about pasta from scratch and then there could be a crazy pasta dough series. 😊😘

    • Gemma Stafford on September 4, 2017 at 1:07 am

      Hi there, I am happy that you are trying the recipes. I will add the pasta ideas to my list, thank you,
      Gemma 🙂

  15. Wanda Waybright on August 31, 2017 at 11:14 am

    Hi Gemma, love your make ahead recipes. I’m disabled and can’t always stand at the stove to cook so these mug recipes help me so much. Thank you for sharing your talent with us to make cooking easy and quick with such delicious recipes. I hope you and Kevin have a great day!

    • Danielle Lucia on September 3, 2017 at 8:52 am

      I think I need to echo Wanda’s comments with my own thanks to you. I have my own health issues that limit end-of-the-day limitations on stamina. Mug meals are proving to be the solution and make the difference between the effort to feed myself nutritonally or not bothering at all.

      • Gemma Stafford on September 3, 2017 at 10:54 am

        Hi Danielle,
        i am delighted you found a solution for you here. It really is not an option not to eat! you need to maintain your energy, so do enjoy the recipes, and I hope your health improves over time. good that you are with us, Gemma 🙂

        • Danielle Lucia on September 3, 2017 at 12:46 pm

          How sweet and kind are, Gemma .
          I entirely enjoy watching your videos.
          Thank you for taking the time to answer so many people when I know your days must already be so busy. Kindness makes such a difference. Blessings.
          Danielle

          • Gemma Stafford on September 4, 2017 at 1:45 am

            Thank you Danielle,
            it is very important to me to keep in touch with you Bold Bakers, without you I would not be able to do what I do! it is a relationship, if you will.
            It is also great to see Bold Bakers reach out to advise and help each other, it is a community spirit really, and it makes me happy.
            Thank you for your kind words,
            Gemma 😉
