Microwave Mug Scramble – Egg Recipe

By Karen Petersen for Oakdell Egg Farms

Eggs have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. My family’s farm has been producing eggs for more than 100 years, so we’ve never been short on supply. Eggs, like milk and bread, are core staples in such a variety of cooking and baking recipes.

Throughout the years, I’ve learned more about eggs’ amazing benefits. They are such a substantial source of protein and so versatile. In fact, eggs are known to contain the highest quality protein that one can buy and likely the most affordable, so it’s no wonder why we’re constantly coming up with new ways to consume eggs in everyday meals.

My husband and two kids can attest that I’m constantly trying out new recipes for eggs. One of the favorites in our home is a recipe we call Microwave Mug Scrambles. It’s basically like an ultimate omelet, but cooked all together in a mug. I love this recipe not only because it’s nutritious, but it’s super easy and fast and can be adapted in so many ways.

You can basically just use what you have on hand; even use leftover ingredients from a prior meal. It’s a great recipe for mornings before work or school or even for a quick-fix dinner that can involve the kids in the making.

Individual portion:

1/2 cup grated and peeled sweet potato

2 eggs, beaten

2 Tbsp. water

1 spear asparagus, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces

4 grape tomatoes, sliced in half

1 mushroom, diced

2 pieces of ham, diced

Salt and pepper

Optional:  cheese, salsa, cottage cheese for serving

The variations to this recipe are endless. Other ingredient ideas to add or substitute include: spinach, arugula, chives, green onions, green pepper, chilies, bacon bits or sausage.

Directions:

  1. Spray a mug with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add in the grated sweet potato. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
  3. Add in eggs, water, asparagus, grape tomatoes, ham and mushroom.
  4. Stir with a spoon. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave for another 30-60 seconds or until set. Serve with optional toppings, such as cottage cheese and salsa for extra protein and flavor, if desired.
