Lightened Up Sausage, Cheese & Eggs in a Mug

This year I have been working on eating better and that means I need to eat breakfast everyday. Well, breakfast that is more than just coffee. But I don’t have the time or energy to cook first thing in the morning. Microwave eggs in a mug are the perfect solution.

Mug Eggs

Mug eggs are great because I can add in anything that I would like in my omelette but it take only minutes to make. I simply put egg in a mug and then it can go right into the microwave. Breakfast is ready in no time.

Since I am watching what I eat, I am also concerned with making smarter choices. I love sausage. I really love it but my new healthier diet does not. I needed to find something that is less calories and fat. So instead of using regular sausage in my mug eggs, I am using turkey sausage. It is a simple way to lighten up these microwave eggs in a mug.

Tip for making eggs in a mug even faster:

  1. Add veggies to your eggs. To save time, cut them up ahead of time, or buy frozen pre-chopped veggies, like peppers and onions.
  2. Add in anything you like in your omelette. It will be just like having an omelette with only a fraction of the time.
  3. If you want to feel like you have an even fuller breakfast, add in frozen hash brown potatoes.
  4. What makes microwave eggs in a mug perfect? You can add in anything else you enjoy, like hot sauce, garlic or salsa.
  5. Want another breakfast in a mug recipe? Why not try Spinach and Feta Omelette in a Mug

I am counting a tablespoon of fat free cheddar cheese and about a tablespoon of fat free milk in this recipe so if you use a lot more or use something other than fat free cheddar, you numbers might be different.

  • Purple: 2 Points
  • Blue: 4 points
  • Green: 6 Points

If you wanted to make this sausage, egg and cheese in a mug even lighter (on Blue), you can use less potatoes/ If you think this isn’t going to be enough to keep you full, add another egg and 0 point veggies.
