Mushroom Mug Omelette


This is another version of Mug cakes. I made mug omelette with mixed frozen vegetables before.

As I have some left over open cup mushroom in the fridge, I decided to give this mug cake/ savoury thing another go. It has only 3 ingredients (excluding the seasoning, of course).

This time I made them in a bowl.  You can easily make this in a mug. But I thought for presentation wise, a mug would show the content better. Still, you do not need to have lots of washing up, just one bowl and a fork.


2 eggs ( or more if you like)

½ open cap mushroom, chopped or 3-4 chestnut mushrooms or other type of button mushroom – chopped

1 stalk spring onion – chopped

Salt and pepper


  1. Spray a small bowl with oil.
  2. Put the chopped mushroom in the bowl and ping it for about 1 minute (900w), until it is a bit softened.  You will need to check your time according to your microwave wattage.
  3. With a piece of kitchen towel, blot out the excess moisture.
  4. Crack the eggs into the bowl and give it a good mix.
  5. Add in the chopped spring onion and the seasoning and mix well.
  6. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir it to combine for even cooking.
  7. Microwave for another 1 to  2 minutes (depending on the volume) until set or to your liking.
  8. Remove and drizzle with ketchup and enjoy!!

You can make all sorts of omelettes using all types of ingredients.

If you like a cheese omelette, prepare the ingredients as above in a mug and add a piece of laughing cow cheese wedge in the centre. Microwave as usual, and voila!!, you have a cheese omelette.

Try different ingredients and get your creativity juice flowing.
