This protein packed meal is an incredible way to start your day. It will keep you feeling full and satisfied until your next meal and add some ease into your morning routine. When I first tested this quiche, there was no explosion, as that is what typically happens to eggs in the microwave, but i did see the eggs puffing over the rim of the mug while microwaving.

  • It only takes 5 minutes and requires only one dirty dish. 
  • You can take it on the go with you directly from the microwave during your morning rush.

Faqs

Can I Prep my Quiche the Night Before?   

This recipe is a perfect on-the-go meal and you can minimize the time it takes to make this microwave quiche by prepping everything the night before! On the nights you know you will be in a rush in the morning, take five minutes to chop your veggies, toss your choice of protein into your mug and whisk an egg in. Cover it and place it in the fridge. Remove it from the fridge the next morning and microwave normally.  

Can I Make this Recipe for Two?     

Absolutely! Just double or triple the recipe and use a larger microwave safe bowl instead of separate mugs. Be sure to put a plate on top of your bowl so the eggs don’t fluff up and over the side of the bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes, remove and check for doneness, and continue to microwave in one minute intervals, or until the eggs have fluffed.
