Quiche in a Mug

Quick & Easy 1 serving


  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon melted unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 small grape tomatoes, halved
  • ½ slice of bread of your choice, torn into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon grated cheese of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh herbs, plus more for garnish (green onions, Italian parsley, chives)


Coat the inside of the mug with cooking spray. Add egg, milk, melted butter, salt, and pepper and whisk thoroughly. Add halved grape tomatoes, torn bread, grated cheese, and chopped herbs on top of egg mixture. Spread this layer evenly, but do not whisk into egg mixture. Place mug in the microwave, and cook on high for 60-90 seconds, just until egg is completely cooked and quiche is slightly puffed. Garnish and serve immediately.
