  • ¾ cup (6oz, 170g) water
  • 3 tablespoons potatoes , in small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon white onion , chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon bacon , cooked
  • 2 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)
  • ½ cup (4oz, 115g) chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
  • ¼ cup (2oz, 56g) milk
  • Salt & pepper
  • Sour cream for garnish , optional
  1. Add your potatoes and water into a large microwaveable mug. Microwave for 3-4 min or until the potatoes are tender. Check on it half way through and stir
  2. Once cooked drain away the cooking water
  3. Into the potatoes stir in the bacon, cheese and onions and cornflour. The cornflour will thicken your soup.
  4. Stir in the stock and milk and season with salt and pepper
  5. Place in the microwave and cook for 2 1/2 - 3 minutes or until it thickens and all of your ingredients have heated through. (Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
  6. Serve topped with sour cream and some more sprinkles of bacon and chives

Recipe Notes

Use a large mug because the water can bubble up in the microwave
Cut your potatoes small because they will cook faster
They can be mixed up in advance for an even speedier meal
Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug

You can bake them in the oven at 350oF (180oC) for roughly 10-12 minutes. However every mug is different so I advise checking on it after 10 and then make a call.
