Lazy Single Girl Tip #2

As promised, today we’re going to learn how to make eggs for dinner using a coffee mug and a microwave. You could even call it a scrambler, if you so choose. First, start with the coffee mug. You’ll want to use a sturdy cup with a wide a base, it works better that way (I learned this the hard way from a very unfortunate microwave incident that I prefer not to talk about). Have your ingredients ready to go, here I have cheese, mushrooms and eggs. Unlike Gwyneth over at GOOP, at Dammit Suzanne we recommend the liberal use of cheese in most dishes.


Pour the eggs or egg whites into the cup and microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute, depending on how much of a bad ass your microwave is. Then add any “fixins” you fancy right into the cup and stir. I usually stick with cheese and mushrooms, and maybe scallions if I remembered to get them at the store (which is never). Tomatoes, peppers and onions also work.  Microwave for 30 second increments until the eggs look done. You’re an adult, you know what that looks like. Salt and pepper to taste, then sit on your couch and watch Dateline.  BOOM, dinner is served.*  Prep time = like, 3 minutes.  Plates to wash = 1.  Awesome level = 10.  If you want to really take it to the next level, don’t be afraid to eat using plastic utensils.


*This recipe (I use that term lightly) can also be used for breakfast or lunch, or any time you want to cook eggs in the breakroom microwave at work and annoy your coworkers.

  1. I actually make this. But… my kids call it “exploding eggs” because I’m a dummy and put the eggs in a bowl, not a mug. You can guess why it got its name.
    You just changed my life.

  2. What about meat? You didn’t microwave any meat? or is that too advanced for your current fan base… Also, maybe in the future you could do a piece on the best meals to take to go after a night out, you know the ones that end up feeding you all week long. Like Fajitas. Yum. Or the best way to reheat and serve pizza. Remember that time you almost burned your house down…I mean, reheating pizza can be dangerous. It almost deserves a PSA.

  3. bahahah…I am so eating this for brekky soon. BOOM.
