Tips

  • Cook times will vary based on your microwave and the shape of the mug you choose. Check the omelette a little bit early or add extra time if needed.
  • Whisk the eggs with a fork until they are a pale yellow color, you should see no bits of white or yolk.
  • Add a teaspoon or so of water or milk to make the eggs extra fluffy.
  • Adding the mix-ins once the eggs are partially set helps keep them from sinking to the bottom.
  • Just like with microwave scrambled eggs, do not overcook. the eggs will continue to cook once removed from the microwave.
