Microwave Mug Quiche - Thee perfect single serve meal that can be made in less than 5 minutes in the microwave

Hi Bold Bakers!

I don’t need to tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We all know how important it is to start off the day with a homemade nutritious meal. I wish I could wake up every day and make Kevin and I a homemade breakfast. The reality is most of our mornings are packed and we just have to grab and go, or even worse, we skip breakfast all together. With my Make Ahead Microwave Mug Quiche, you never have to worry about your breakfast again.

My Microwave Mug Quiche will blow you away. This is no egg hack or imitation, this Quiche is complete with savory crust, gooey cheese and salty ham. This is the prefect single-serving breakfast. I love to meal prep a few of these over the weekend that way when the busy week arrives I’m ready.

Preparing this Microwave Mug Quiche only takes minutes. I start with just a few simple ingredient in the bottom of my mug to make the crust. On top of that I crack an egg, add a splash of milk and my favorite part–the ham and cheese. To save it for later, I simply cover it up with cling wrap and pop it into the fridge.

The next morning all I do is scramble my eggs and microwave this baby for just 2 minutes. Who could resist a homemade breakfast that takes less than 5 minutes to make and cook? This make ahead rendition of a Microwave Mug Quiche will make your mornings easy and get our day off to a great start.

I’ve made this recipe almost a dozen times now and it’s great very time. I use vegetables instead of ham; I’ve tried olives, broccoli, and red pepper and they were all delicious! I also like to add some fresh thyme to the egg mixture. I never knew eggs could cook so well in the microwave!

Hi Gemma, Thank you so much for this recipe! I added black sesame seeds and sunflower seeds to the dough to make it more healthy. I omitted the meat and cheese and it came out great.

Perhaps just throw the dough into the jar/mug the same way you did with the breakfast burito flatbread. I wonder if that would work? Have you tried that? Also, I have seen some cute little pies that are… Read more »

Hi Gemma. I’m about to make this recipe in the microwave and am going to try pre-cooking the crust in 30s intervals or maybe just for 30s. I’ll find out what works. Do you think this could have any negative impacts on the final result?
