I made three of these this morning, as I wanted to have a fun breakfast that I could make with my two kids and have them participate. I don't keep green bell pepper on hand, I used red instead. I made no other changes. I made sure that we all sprayed our mugs very well with cooking spray before pouring in our omelette ingredients. This turned out very cool--my kids and I were very impressed. After they finished their mug omelettes, they wanted to make another one! This would be great to expand to have little bowls of different throw in's and really make some fun omelette combinations. Thanks for sharing your recipe--my kids and I made a wonderful memory this morning.

Easy and delicious without a ton of prep or clean up!What more could you ask for from a simple yet filling breakfast? Perfect for when you need something "on the go". I've been making this for my husband to take to work and you can use any type of microwave-safe dish as long as you spray it with Pam. Watch your cooking times as microwave strengths vary - you don't want the eggs to explode. I love the combo of ham, cheese, and veggies. This recipe is a great base: use your favorite cheeses or breakfast meats and add-in whatever veggies you have on hand. You can even lighten it up by using Egg Beaters and fresh herbs! This works great for breakfast sandwiches on biscuits or English muffins or try it in a warm tortilla for a breakfast wrap. Whatever you choose it's bound to be good!

I use two whole eggs, I didn't feel like separating eggs, some left over cooked Italian sausage and some diced peppers. My microwave is pretty powerful, I cooked for 1 minute and the egg puffed up really high - took it out, couldn't really stir it as it was mostly cooked. The egg deflated and I just used a knife to move the egg around the mug, add a little cheese and back into the microwave for 30 seconds. Make sure you spray the mug well and the egg will just slide right out. BTW - this is great with just one egg in a ramekin for one minute. Perfect for making egg McMuffins.
