Unless you really love cooking, when you’re cooking for one it can be hard to motivate yourself to whip up a meal from scratch. But you don’t want to rely on convenience meals all the time either.

Microwave mug recipes are the perfect solution since you use fresh ingredients to make a hot meal, but spend little time and effort on it. These are perfect when you’re in a hurry, when everyone in the family has a different schedule, for college kids, or just a fun alternative to traditional meals.

Microwave Recipes in a Mug for Breakfast

Tired of cereal for breakfast? No time in the morning to make bacon and eggs? Try one of these microwave breakfast mug recipes!

Microwave Recipes in a Mug for Lunch or Dinner

When my teens get home from school they are STARVING. Since we don’t eat dinner until four hours after they get home, they usually eat a “second lunch.” These microwave lunch mug recipes are great ones for that!

Microwave Recipes in a Mug for Dessert

Okay, this is my absolute favorite category. When I make a full-sized dessert, I end up eating way too much of it so it “doesn’t go to waste” – or at least, that’s my excuse. These microwave mug desserts are generous single serve portions or perfect to enjoy with someone else.
