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
- Spray a small bowl with oil.
- 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.
- With a piece of kitchen towel, blot out the excess moisture.
- Crack the eggs into the bowl and give it a good mix.
- Add in the chopped spring onion and the seasoning and mix well.
- Microwave for 1 minute. Stir it to combine for even cooking.
- Microwave for another 1 to 2 minutes (depending on the volume) until set or to your liking.
- 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.
