If you are not signed up to received HUNGRY GIRL’S daily emails, you MUST sign up ASAP!! Every weekday, I open my email to a fun, tip-filled email. Thursday’s email was full of EGG-tra good recipes. She had 3 or 4 recipes that were basically eggs in a mug. I know, it sounds gross, but we should try it!

I haven’t had a change to try this one yet, but it looks SOOOO good!

Pizza! Pizza! Egg Mug

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 134 calories, 3.75g fat, 796mg sodium, 5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 3g sugars, 18g protein — POINTS® value 3*

We tried this with mozzarella, too, but The Laughing Cow won out and had the last laugh…

2 tbsp. canned crushed tomatoes
1/8 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
6 slices turkey pepperoni (like the kind by Hormel), chopped
1/2 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

Season crushed tomatoes with Italian seasoning and set aside.

Spray a large microwave-safe mug lightly with nonstick spray. Add egg substitute and cheese wedge, breaking the cheese wedge into pieces as you add it. Microwave for 1 minute.

Stir gently, and then microwave for another 30 seconds.

Mix in seasoned tomatoes and pepperoni. Microwave for another 30 seconds, until scramble is just set.

Stir lightly, and then sprinkle with grated topping. Allow to cool a bit, and then ENJOY!


HG Alternative! If you don’t feel like opening a can of tomatoes for just 2 tbsp., you can use some jarred low-fat pizza sauce instead!

Egg Mug Awareness: A Must-Read Guide

Some tips and tricks for your egg mug fix…

1. Don’t worry if the contents of your mug expand and rise to crazy-high heights while in the microwave. This is okay and expected. They’ll calm down after you’re done nuking them.

2. Our egg mug recipes are 100000% guilt-free. Sometimes we eat two at a time. Sometimes we pair one with a lovely Fuji. Just sayin’…

3. On the go? Wrap your microwave-made scramble in a high-fiber tortilla or stuff it inside a Sandwich Thin. Mmmmm!!!
