Spray the insides of your mug with cooking spray to keep the eggs from sticking. Add the eggs and a splash of water or milk. Gently beat with a fork to mix the eggs until blended. Do not over-beat the eggs.

Add in the ham, cheese, any desired vegetables or fungi and the salt and pepper. Gently stir in the add-ins to incorporate them into the eggs until evenly mixed. Microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds and let sit in the microwave for 1 minute before running out to the car with your hot breakfast so you aren’t late for work.

Lastly, don’t make the same mistake I did. It was almost an hour after I normally eat lunch. I was getting pretty hungry, so I took a bite of my omelet before it had much time to cool.

Needless to say, my mouth was an ovoid inferno.

It’s often easier just to fill your Sunset Hill Stoneware mug with enough coffee to wire up a small elephant and face the day. That’s no way to live.

Multiple studies have shown that eating breakfast has a laundry list of important health benefits, although many Americans are in the habit of skipping it. Making an omelet in a Sunset Hill Stoneware mug takes as little as three minutes to complete. Plus, a lot of the prep work can be done the night before.

This is far from the only breakfast recipe you can make using Sunset Hill Stoneware mugs or kitchenware. In fact, even this recipe has a thousand possible variations according to your tastes. Meat or no meat, extra veggies, egg whites or egg replacer, another porcine additive of your choosing; there are options for everyone.One quick note about using water or milk: While I used a splash of water in this recipe to make the omelet fluffier, you could use milk instead if you want it to be creamier. The only rule is to be careful not to over-beat the eggs, or they will be dense and chewy. A dense, chewy omelet is a sad omelet.
