Mug meals in seconds

Although people prefer mugs to enjoy coffee or tea, meals in a mug are just as enjoyable. A mug makes it easy for one person to cook a meal, fast than it takes to order a pizza. Take into consideration those late movie nights with friends when stomachs eventually plead to be fed. Mug cooking provides a fun and unique way for a group of friends to take a movie break and treat themselves to a subtle meal. Whether you experience late-night food cravings, or you enjoy making small, portioned meals, these mug recipes are your best interest.

For each recipe, you need to have a microwave and a microwaveable mug. The process for each mug meal requires the combination of ingredients given. Constant stirring needs to be completed before microwaving. However when it comes to the egg-mug muffin, be sure to make a well in the center of the batter with a spoon for an egg to be cracked.

For each recipe, place the mug into the microwave. For each meal, timing can vary from 50 seconds to one minute and 30 seconds. You must be sure to keep an eye on your mug while in the microwave so it does not overcook or overflow. Enjoy your meal while it is hot.
