Spinach and Cheddar Microwave Quiche in a Mug
- 1/2 cup chopped frozen spinach thawed and drained (or 1/2 cup packed fresh spinach)
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 slice cooked bacon chopped (optional)
- salt and pepper to taste
- If using fresh spinach, place it in mug with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover with a paper towel and microwave on high for one minute. Remove from microwave and drain the water and liquid from spinach thoroughly.
- If using frozen spinach, make sure it is completely thawed and drained and add it to the mug. (If there is too much liquid, the quiche will be runny. I like to put the thawed spinach in a mesh sieve and press firmly with a wooden spoon to do remove as much liquid as possible.)
- Crack the egg into the mug with the spinach and add the milk, cheese, bacon (if using), and salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.
- Cover with a paper towel and microwave on high for 3 minutes (see note on timing below), or until fully cooked.
- If you have a powerful microwave, you may need less time. If you are unsure, check it at 2 minutes, then again at 2 1/2 minutes. If the eggs seem watery, they need more time. But if they are solid, then you're good to go!
- Sometimes, even a paper towel isn't enough to prevent a microwave mess. If you find that your eggs have a tendency to pop and make a mess, you can dampen the paper towel to weigh it down a bit or even cover it with a small plate.
