Omelette in Microwave | Mug Omelette



If you have a microwave in your home, then there is no excuse of missing breakfast, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚ When I selected eggs as my “Protein Rich Ingredient” theme in the Blogging Marathon #88 – the other posts being Double Cheese Omelette and Akuri, I really wanted to try the omelette in mug, which has been doing rounds for quite some time.


With the microwave oven becoming a part of almost all households, despite what all negative image it may have, we all still use it for something or the other. It makes a lot of cooking quite easy especially when you have some time constraints. I wouldn’t say that this omelette tastes as good as the one you make slowly on a frying pan, but for breakfast on the go, this is such a good option.


My only advice if you are trying this is to not over cook. You will end up with a dry omelette you wouldn’t love eating. Also, cook in spurts of 30 seconds once the initial one minute is done. You will have a neater looking mug than mine. ๐Ÿ˜€ I was impatient and did for a whole minute, so the egg spilled over on to the mug, and I had to clean the microwave glass, to avoid the eggy smell. I have used my favorite capsicum, olives and cheese to brighten up my omelette but add whatever you fancy – spinach, mushrooms (ensure they are sauteed!), sausages… limitless!

  • 1 tsp butter melted
  • 3 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped capsicum
  • 1 tbsp sliced olives
  • 2 tbsp mozarella cheese


  • Add the butter, eggs, salt and pepper in a large mug and whisk well. Microwave for one minute.
  • Add in the toppings, slowly press in and microwave in spurts of 30 seconds till done - I cooked for a minute.
  • Dig in!


Take care not to over cook in the microwave! After the initial one minute, do for 30 seconds, leave it out for a minute, check doneness and then cook for another 30 seconds. You may all know that microwave ovens keep cooking even after the time, so take care of it...

  8. Awesome one Rafeeda, I have been wanting to make it for a long time too. I use my MW a lot and love all Mug dishes. Only because I don’t cook eggs especially in MW, I was hesitant to use it this way. By the way, the spill looks like a classic move ok..enjoyed all your different takes..surely something I can make for my kids.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Haha… I agree that the spill did make the mug look a bit more stylish… Thank you so much Valli…

    I think I microwaved eggs once and ended up with a rubbery mass of mess some time back ๐Ÿ™‚ Your microwave omelette turned out great. Will have to try your version some time.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      It solely depends on the time, better to have flowy omelette than the rubber for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much Pavani…
