Omlets in a Mug

Are you getting bored of the same old breakfast, but mornings are a rush and you never have time to cook? Here is a great idea that only uses 1 mug and takes only a minute in the microwave! It is quick, easy and less cleanup. The big bonus is it tastes great! Here is my recipe:

1 egg
2 Tablespoons of milk or water
1 Tablespoon of diced ham, or bacon (lunch meat works great!)
1 Tablespoon of grated cheese of your choice
Salt and pepper to taste

Crack egg into mug & add milk. Stir in ham, cheese, salt and pepper. Place in the microwave and cook for 1 min. - 1min. 30 sec. depending on your microwave. (I do 1 min. 10 sec.) Out comes a fluffy, tasty omlet that can be eaten on the run!

(The only dish you have is a mug and a fork! The mug also keeps it hot longer than placing the omlet on a plate so it works great for those children who don't always come to breakfast when you thought they would!)
 This idea came from an article by Cindy Dampier.
