Kitchen Sink Omelet in a Mug

It is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

One mug, two minutes, and three base ingredients!


  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 3 tablespoons Vegetables (finely diced)
  • 2 tablespoons Crumbled Feta Cheese (*may substitute for grated cheese of choice)
  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • Other herbs or seasonings of choice (*optional)

*Vegetables may vary. Finely chop your favorite vegetables or the vegetables you have left in the refrigerator. Bell peppers, onion, and spinach work well!


Lightly mist the inside of a 12-ounce microwave-safe mug with oil spray. Add the egg and egg whites and whisk together. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until well-combined. 

Place the mug in the microwave, uncovered, and cook for 45 seconds. Remove and stir the contents with a fork. Microwave for another 45 seconds. Remove and stir again. Microwave one last time for 30 seconds, stirring at the 15-second mark and checking for doneness. Season with salt, pepper, and herbs to taste.
