My New Favorite Breakfast for One

~Hold your tongue when it comes 
to talking badly about a friend.~ 
~Mary Lloyd 1880~ 

It's been ages since I blogged a recipe. As I was rounding up my ingredients for breakfast this mornin', I decided that since I'm addicted to this new recipe I found, I really should share it.

Ever since we got chickens...5 years ago...I can't seem to go without an egg for breakfast. Cereal just doesn't stick with me, and I'm starving by 10 AM. With an egg breakfast I can eat just two meals a day...suites me perfect!

My favorite recipe web site is which is where I found "Omelet in a Mug."

Four simple ingredients and a've got breakfast in just a few minutes.

The four simple ingredients.
You can use either a microwave safe mug or small bowl.

1.  Coat the inside of the mug or bowl with spray cooking oil, butter, or (my favorite) a dab of bacon grease.

2.  Beat 2 eggs with salt and pepper to taste.

3.  Mix in the rest of the ingredients: 2 tablespoons fully cooked cubed ham; 2 tablespoons grated cheese (my fav is medium Tillamook cheddar), and 1 tablespoon chopped green pepper.

You can use either a microwave safe mug or bowl.

4.  Cook in microwave for 1 minute; stir.

5.  Cook for another 1 1/2 minutes or until eggs are set.

I find that using my fresh eggs, it sometimes takes another 30 seconds
for the eggs to completely cook. I think they are just larger
than regular store-bought eggs.

6.  Enjoy!!! You can eat it right out of the bowl, or scoop it out onto a plate.

I like my Omelet with an English muffin and a dab of
home-made strawberry/rhubarb freezer jam!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I'm heading out to saddle up Colt to bring down the Wild Bunch off the hill...I have a prospective buyer for Brego coming today...please send good thoughts my way to find a new, good home for Brego.

Sharing this with Farm Chick's recipe linky party!

Once upon a time I tried to do the Atkins diet (all protein, no carbs) and I remember that the eggs I had for breakfast definitely stayed with me longer. But in the mornings I'm lazy, and almost always late, so I get by on cereal. This is so quick and easy, I'll have to try it! Thanks!

Shirley said...

Never thought of doing an omelet in the Nuker- thanks for the recipe.
Sure hope you do find a good home for Brego. Did you sell Gus yet?

I was just thinking about you this morning, and poof! Here you are. I love the the Allrecipe website, it's my go to site as well. Anything eggs and I'm good to go! Great recipe! I think I'll give it a try. Good luck with Brego.

I have to have eggs from our chickens for breakfast every morning that I am home too. And I refuse to order them out -- its just not the same. Eggs from your own chickens are the BEST. -- same goes for jam. Yours looks and sounds yummy! Next year I'm going to try that combo; strawberry rhubarb.

Ruffles said...

hmmm, I'm gonna have to try that recipe. it looks really nice.
I hope Brego finds a great new home. Good luck

Allison at Novice Life said...

Yum! Looks great!

Maia said...

Great shots and it looks yummy

Crystal said...

wow I think I used to make a recipe similar to that forever ago (like when we first bought a microwave. May have to try it again. There is also one that you put an egg in a bun with a hole in the top and micro it and it was really good too.

Good luck with Brego!

I had no idea you could do that. Thanks!

We just made an offer on a new horse for me. Taking your advice from months ago. Cross your fingers.

Rhonda said...

This sounds (and looks) good - thanks for sharing! :)

Jeni said...

Good breakfast. It's the protien in the eggs that makes it "stay with you longer" then cereal which is just mostly cardboard..err.. grain product.

Good luck with Brego.. do you have a sales page that I'm just not seeing?

Jeni said...

Never mind.. I found your sales page. Brego is a beautiful Kiger. Wish him the best of luck and happy trails.

Thanks for joining in my recipe swap!! I make eggs like this all the time when just one or two people in our family want one. This is a great breakfast for kids before they head off to school. :)

Kim said...

It definitely looks tasty and easy and that's always a good combination in my book!

Country Whispers said...

I've never made an egg in the microwave before but that looks good and super quick to make which makes it even better.
Thanks for sharing!

Oh, yum. I love eggs for breakfast, and fresh farm eggs are the best!
