10 Easy Recipes for Meals Made in a Mug
The other day I was in need of some serious comfort food. However, at the same time, I was also feeling extremely lazy. The battle of hunger vs. laziness is a constant struggle. Well, until now that is, because I've found an excellent compromise: mug meals.
Imagine getting that slice of chocolate cake that you're craving within minutes. It's possible. You can literally have your cake and eat it too.
Making a meal in a mug takes only a few minutes and usually just a couple of ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen. It's instant gratification and in single serving sizes. In fact, I think I might try and have an entire mug filled day of meals!
Here are 10 recipes for dishes you can cook in mugs to start you off:
1. Coffee Cup Quiche
Pro Tip: On a similar note, check out our recipe for egg bacon cups! And don't forget that bacon can also be cooked in a microwave, or you can use pre cooked bacon for this recipe.
2. 2 Minute French Toast in Cup
3. Coffee Cup Chilaquiles
4. Microwave Mac n' Cheese in Mug
5. Coffee Cup Coffee Cake
1. Cheesecake in a Mug
2. One Minute Chocolate Cake
Pro Tip: I use this a basic outline for creating different flavours or I add something extra to this (like peanut butter etc). Also, I always, always, always go with the non healthy version of this recipe. Just trust me.
3. 2 Minute Chocolate Salted Caramel Mug Cake
4. Chocolate Fluffernutter Mug Cake
5. Chocolate Chip Cookie in Cup
Which one of these are you dying to try out?

Yummy! These all look super delicious and they are easy to make for a quick meal or dessert. I'm hesitant to try a mug recipe in the microwave I have never tried it before, but hey there is a first for everything and if they turn out as good as the pictures look I would be a happy camper :) :)
