Looking for a great easy breakfast? Living in a dorm but want something homemade? Then this is the recipe for you. Made in a single serve mug, you can be done and eating in under 3 minutes.

I cannot believe I am actually blogging this. This is one of my guilty pleasures, something I almost never admit to eating and here I am sharing it with everyone. I learned to do this back in High School while traveling abroad.

(I just want to note the photo above is taken removed from cooking vessel, I general eat it in the mug but wanted to show it better)

You will need:

1 egg
1/2 slice sandwich bread
1 1/2 tbsp cream (or milk)
2 tsp cream cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme

*optional 1 tbsp real bacon bits
*optional 1 slice ham (lunch meat) torn to pieces

Let us begin:

In a coffee cup or beat together milk and egg.

Dust top with thyme.


Microwave for 1 minute.

If it doesn’t look set microwave 10 additional seconds.

It almost always takes my microwave 1 minute 10 seconds, but when I learned this it took 1 minute 30 seconds. So just bare in mind a stronger microwave a shorter cook time.


Okay, your done! Enjoy!
