Make sure you use a largish mug and that you don’t overfill it as the omelette does tend to start rising out of the mug once it starts to cook. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye on it whilst cooking to avoid any messy incidents.

Cooking Tips:

The egg mix will rise so keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t overflow and cause a mess.
If you find your omelette has tons of water around it then this means the egg has been overcooked. To avoid this try cooking it for less time.
The extras such as ham and the red bell pepper can easily be swapped out for other ingredients. For example, you could swap the ham for salmon, the bell pepper for spinach and add a bit of dill.
Microwaves can vary by quite a bit on how fast they can cook. You may find you will need to adjust the cooking time slightly. Doing in 30 second bursts should help prevent over cooking.
The mug is likely to be hot when you go to grab it out of the microwave. It’s important to use caution so that you can avoid any nasty burns.
