Microwave Farmers Omelet (In A Cup)
(1 serving) Printable Version
I think the trick is filling your mug 2/3 full of ingredients before microwaving. That yields an omelet that rises just slightly over rim of the cup. I added an extra egg and increased the bell pepper to 2 Tablespoons to make that happen for my particular mug. As for cooking time, mine took 1 minute and 40 seconds... stirring twice during that period. I suggest that you serve the omelet directly in the the mug. It's much prettier than if you invert it onto a plate. Thanks to 'Bennett' for sending us this recipe. (Tested and photographed in June 2013)
How To Make A Microwave Farmers Omelet
Prepare a large microwave-safe mug by spraying the inside generously with cooking spray.
Place all ingredients in the mug and stir to mix.
Microwave on high for one minute. Check the omelet. If the egg is not completely set, continue to microwave in 20 second intervals until it is completely set.
Run a knife around the edges of the omelet and slide it onto a serving plate.
Breakfast in under two minutes! And dish washing is a breeze.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.

My mom loves omelets and I can't even make pasta and it's Mother's Day tomorrow so this is perfect.

Agree with Da Pom. Mix separately so the spray stays on the wall of the cup. Easy, pretty and yummy.

This is an awesome way to cook eggs for my wife. She likes omelets and I prefer sunny side up, so we never really eat at the same time. now we are both happy and can eat together. You definitely need to make sure to use cooking spray though!

The best omelet yet! I liked it with bacon. Cook and eat in the same cup, what could be easier?

I prefer to mix all the ingredients separately then pour them in to the cooking sprayed cup. Mixing them in the cup itself rubs some of the spray off the sides which can cause sticking. Yeah I know, it's more washing up!
