Hi Bold Bakers!
The Mediterranean gives us amazing food and inspiration for our cooking. One great example of that is a traditional dish called Shakshuka. It’s a flavorful egg dish eaten for breakfast that is seasoned with cumin, garlic and herbs in a tomato sauce. Now although you don’t want to tamper with a classic, I’m just going to show you a bit of a simpler way to cook it. Lots of different countries have a take on this recipe but this one is truly unforgettable.
Mug recipes are real meals made fast. They are satisfying, single-serving recipes made with real food. For even more convenience, make them up the night before for a fast breakfast in the morning.
Bold Baking Tips for Mug Meals
Cook time is based on my microwave which is 1200 Watts so your cook time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave. When in doubt check your mug meal after 45 seconds just to make sure it is cooking ok. You can always cook it for 30 second intervals if you wish. Also the mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup) but feel free to use bigger.

Microwave Shakshuka in a Mug
- ½ cup (4floz/120ml) tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon dry oregano
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes
- 1 egg
- In a microwavable mug combine the tomato sauce and spices
- Once your sauce is mixed up crack your egg into the center of the mug
- Microwave for 2-2.30 seconds in 30 second intervals or until your egg white is fully cooked and the gold is slightly set (timing is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Top with corriander and feta and enjoy straight away!
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. ⅛ teaspoon is simply a ½ of a ¼ teaspoon
