Let’s Crack the Ingredients 🥚

Our egg-citing cast of characters include: eggs, bacon, cheese, milk, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Remember: Fresh, free-range eggs work best for a superior taste. And, feel free to use your favorite cheese! Cheddar, mozzarella, or even feta would work wonderfully. The world is your oyster…or should we say, your egg? 😄

Tip: Want a little extra kick? Throw in some diced jalapeños or a dash of hot sauce for a spicy twist!

A Mug-ificent Cooking Journey 🍽️

First, you’re going to want to cook your bacon until it’s as crispy as a sunny day. 🌞 Remember: Don’t overcook it! Nobody likes their bacon burnt to a crisp.

Tip: Save a bit of that bacon fat! It’s great for sautéing veggies or adding a flavor punch to your dishes.

Next, you’ll whisk your eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in your chosen mug until they’re well combined. Stir in that mouthwatering bacon and an ample helping of cheese. Then it’s into the microwave for about a minute and a half, and voila! You’ve got yourself a quick, comforting, and cheesy breakfast that’s sure to make your mornings egg-stra special! 🥳

Bonus: If you’re feeling a little indulgent, add a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkle of chives on top for an egg-stravagant finish.

Tip: Always watch your eggs while they’re in the microwave. They can go from raw to overcooked in a flash!
