So I’ve shown you how to make meringues and soft caramel in the microwave, so I think it’s about time to go for something savory rather than sweet: quiche in a mug, in the microwave in just three minutes! Doesn’t that sound like a kitchen dream?
As much as I love eating, I don’t always have the time or patience to cook myself a proper meal, and like most people, I loathe all that inevitable washing up that comes with big fancy meals. So if I’m in a hurry and in need of a good breakfast, or feeling snacky after work, this microwave quiche is literally the perfect solution.
You will need:
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1 egg
- 1 ½ tablespoons whole milk
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 slice of bread, broken into small pieces
- 2 tablespoons grated cheddar
- 4 cherry tomatoes (quartered)
- Small handful spinach
- 2 spring onions (chopped)
The thing that I love about quiches is that you can throw in whatever you like: ham, cooked bacon, red onion, mushrooms, feta, etc. The choice really is yours. And if you have a bigger hole to fill in your tummy, simply double up the ingredients and use a nice big mug.
