Microwavable meals have always been a quick, go-to staple. But now, there’s a new trend taking over microwaves. Mug recipes are a new way to make quick, delicious, no-hassle meals. You simply take key ingredients, mix them together in a mug, microwave, and then enjoy! From breakfast and dinner, to dessert, there’s a simple way to make whatever you have a taste for.

Morning Quiche Mug


1 large egg

1 1/2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon melted unsalted butter

Pinch of salt

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

4 small grape tomatoes, halved

1/8 cup torn pieces of fresh bread

1 tablespoon grated cheese (your preference)

1 teaspoon chopped fresh herbs, plus more for garnish

You’ll start by whisking together the eggs, butter, salt, and pepper. Next add in the remaining ingredients, making sure they are spread evenly throughout. Finally, microwave! This dish only needs 1 minute cook. The quiche should be completely cooked, and slightly puffed.


Spinach Ricotta Lasagna Mug


1/2 fresh lasagna sheet

2 1/2 cups (75g) baby spinach, roughly chopped

1/4 medium yellow bell pepper, diced

1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

3 large basil leaves, finely chopped (optional)

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 tsp granulated garlic

6 tablespoons pasta sauce or tomato sauce

1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella

This recipe is layers and layers of perfection. The lasagna sheet is placed throughout the mug with the ingredients, including tasty ricotta and mozzarella cheese, mixed in. Once everything is in place, microwave your mug for 1 minute and 30 seconds.


Peach Cobbler Mug Cake

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoon white cake mix

  • 1 – 2 pinches of cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 (4 oz) diced peaches in light syrup

Start by melting the butter in the microwave. You will need to mix the cake mix, cinnamon, and milk in a separate bowl, before pouring it on top of the butter. Top it all off with your peaches and then microwave on 50% power for 3-4 minutes.
