Coffee Cup Quiche

Day 1 of my 7-Day Microwave Mug Challenge! I made a few edits. Check out the original recipe here.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1/2 Whole Wheat Bagel Thin
  • 2 teaspoons cream cheese
  • 1/2 slice ham
  • Thyme
  • A pinch of Cheddar Cheese

1. Beat egg and milk together with a fork in a coffee cup. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tear bagel into dime-size pieces; stir in. Add cream cheese; stir in. Tear ham into small pieces; add to mixture. Sprinkle with thyme.

2. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Garnish with cheddar cheese. Microwave 20 seconds.

Now, I don’t know what kind of miniature coffee mug they used for their picture, but it definitely doesn’t puff up that much!

Perhaps my Bagel Thins substitution made a difference in the puffiness? I also substituted cheddar cheese on top for the Dijon mustard, because that’s what I had in my refrigerator! I also used a thick, sugar-glazed Curel ham slice — I don’t usually have fancy-shmancy prosciutto on hand. 😛 Anywho, mine didn’t look as pretty, but it certainly tasted delicious!

Unfortunately, I took my picture after stirring it up to incorporate all the ooey-gooey cheddar cheese and cream cheese. My stomach got ahead of my camera!

What I really like most about this recipe, other than the simplicity, is the portion size. It was the perfect amount of food to start my morning!
