Egg and Cheese Muffin in a Mug

I love the taste and convenience of Egg McMuffins but I don't visit fast food chains anymore. This is a way to get the same kind of breakfast quickly using a mug and a microwave. The dough turns into a soft and fluffy English muffin and there's a perfectly cooked egg in the middle. I've made this with gluten free flour and it's worked out perfectly.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 7 minutes

Yield: 1-2 servings



  1. In a large microwave safe mug, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a fork.
  2. Add in the milk, black pepper, oil, 1 of the eggs, cheese and peppers. Mix together until just combined.
  3. Dough should be thick enough for you to start pushing it up against the sides of the cup. If not, add a bit more flour and mix.
  4. Make a well in the batter and crack in your other egg into the center.
  5. Move the batter from the sides of the mug over the top of the egg. Make sure it's fully covered.
  6. Place mug in the microwave and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. Keep a close eye on the mug to make sure the egg doesn't overflow.
  7. Enjoy while warm. The perfectly cooked egg in the middle is a lovely surprise!
