A good egg-based breakfast makes a satisfying start to your day… but who’s got time to cook an omelet and scrub a pan? Not me.
But what I do have time for is an egg mug made in the microwave. So easy!
All it takes is four ingredients, some nonstick spray, and a big microwave-safe mug. (The mixture will puff up as it cooks, so give it some extra space!)
The HG Special Egg Mug
½ cup (about 4) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1 oz. (about 2 thin slices) turkey breast, roughly chopped
1 tbsp. light/reduced-fat cream cheese
1 tsp. dried minced onion

2. Stir in remaining ingredients. Microwave for 1 minute, or until set.
3. Stir well.
