Hungry Girl's Pizza! Pizza! Egg Mug

First of all, I realize that somewhere along the way I made it so my photos cannot be pinned to pinterest...well I fixed that, so happy pinning :)

I am really liking all of my Hungry Girl cookbooks, this super easy egg recipe comes from her 300 under 300 calories. I have been making variations of it since I first tried this pizza one.

The best part of these egg mugs is there is hardly any thing to clean up after and they take about 5 minutes total.

For this one you will need some egg replacer, turkey or fake pepperoni, tomatoes or pizza sauce, laughing cow cheese, parmesan and some cooking spray.

Chop up your pepperoni.

Measure out your egg. You can also stir the Italian seasoning into the tomatoes if you don't have some pizza sauce on hand.

Now it is time to cook, well, microwave. This is seriously so easy.

egg and cheese
Spray your mug with pam and then pour in the egg. Break up the laughing cow cheese in the mug. You want to be sure you have a decent size mug or bowl because this will expand.

one minute to go
Put the mug in the microwave for one minute.

starting to cook
You can see it is starting to firm up on the outside. Give it a gentle stir and microwave for 30 seconds more.

sauce and pepperoni in
Add in the tomatoes or sauce and the pepperoni and stir. Microwave for another minute. I only did it for another 30 seconds and it just didn't get cooked enough.

Pizza! Pizza! Egg Mug
Seriously, a meal ready in five minutes that is tasty and filling. I have made variations of this with spinach and mozzarella as well. 3 minutes total cooking time seems to be the perfect amount for my microwave. The variations on this are endless so I encourage you to experiment and please report back if you come up with some must try combos.

Have a great week!

  5. Sounds like you could make this very healthy and low cal if you wanted.

  6. I love the idea of this!! I love savory breakfasts, so that's right up my alley. :D

  7. This is very inventive and I am sure quite good.
    I don't have a microwave and have never cooked with one. I don't miss it, though they do seem quick.
    Have a wonderful day. Blessings dearest. Catherine xoxo

  9. This would definitely satisfy a pizza craving!

  10. I meant to tell you about the Pinterest problem but you're the second blogger I ran into with this so I learned that if I click a picture REALLY FAST before it tells me no images can be pinned, I could get around it. One thing I pinned from your blog took me like 5 tries but I got it. I'm so slick. haha! Your microwave egg mug looks much better than the scrambled microwave eggs my dad used to make almost every morning. those things were nasty! lol
