Omelettes In a Bag or a Mug

My love for easy love easy grab and go breakfasts can not be overstated. Especially omelettes, they can be made so quickly with numerous mix ins and are always scrumptious. My go to is doing omelettes in a bag or a mug.  It’s a great way to please a crew of picky eaters.  While I regularly do dinner Meal Prep, adding these Omlettes in a Bag or a Mug make sure that the morning rush is stress free.  Check out my free weekly and monthly Meal Planner Printable here.

If you aren’t familiar with  making an omelette in a bag all of the cooking is done in a freezer bag. You can put as many as 8 individual freezer bags into one large pot of boiling water for 13-15 minutes. Make sure you take the time to label the freezer bags if you are making a bunch of different kinds. Making omelettes in a  mug is equally as simple and all of the cooking is done in the microwave. I am listing my 10 favorite for you to try but as you become a pro at this add in whatever you want.




Deliciously Easy Omelette in a Mug

Any variety of this recipe is delicious and easy, so making it as a snack at work is great too.If you are trying to stay on a almost any clean eating diet this will work, especially is you skip the cheese. This Deliciously Easy Omelette in a Mug has cheese, peppers and ham.


Quick Omelette In a Mug

The thick cut bacon, lean turkey and egg whites in this one will be delicious. This Quick Omelette in a Mug has such a nice creamy  texture for a treat anytime of the day.  The chives are something that easily get left out but has a huge impact on the overall flavor.


Two Minute Omelette In a Mug

What could be better than a low fat protein based 2 Minute Omelette in a Mug. This recipe literally takes two minutes of effort, utilizes almond milk and is seriously delicious. Be sure to use a larger size, microwave safe mug if you’ll be making more than one egg because they do puff up quite a bit.

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Mug

You can prepare bags with cooked sausage and any veggie or cheese ahead of time. Then just add eggs to this yummy Sausage and Egg Breakfast Mug. We all love variety so the idea of prepping ahead makes sense. Of course breakfast sausage is delicious but switching it up from some chorizo is a fantastic variation.


If you are planning on making any of these Omlettes in a bag, I highly recommend getting some of these baggie holders.  They are one of my favourite tools, and they get used weekly.  This deal for a 4 pack is the best I’ve seen.  Grab yours now while the offer is still live, it’s even got PRIME shipping.   If you prefer to not use disposable plastic bags, you will LOVE Stasher Bags, re-usable and heat proof, they are an excellent choice for breakfast prepping.

Southwest Omelette In a Bag

This recipe by for a simple Southwest Omelette in a bag is simple but absolutely bursting with flavor. Use of course you’ll need salsa and sour cream to finish this one off. One great idea with this recipe is how great the omelette in a bag could be for the outdoor enthusiast cooking over a campfire.

Crumbled Bacon Omelette In A Bag

Mix the ingredients this recipe calls for and then mix in a little more of that crumbled bacon. Let’s be honest, is there even such a thing as too much bacon in a crumbled bacon omelette. Make sure all the air is forced out of the bag for a perfect texture.

Dinner In A Bag

Yes, you can make the omelette hearty enough to have it for dinner. This recipe utilizes broccoli, asparagus and mushrooms to make it filling. The Dinner in a Bag recipe manages to take it up a notch as more hearty filling dinner meal. I’ll be honest I was a little skeptical about adding in the asparagus but I was please with how great the added texture was.

Omelette in a Reusable Bag

If you don’t know what a stasher bag is it is a reusable, plastic free alternative to a plastic bag. The  stasher bags are obviously add a bit more cleanup but if you are trying to eliminate plastics from you’re daily life it is a fantastic option.  The first thing you put in the bag when making the omelette  has to be some butter, smoosh it all around to coat the sides and avoid a stuck omelette. Best part of using the reusable bag is that it is sturdy enough that you can skip the plate and eat out of it with a spoon.

Loaded Mediterranean Omelette

Do not underestimate just how creative you can get the concept of an omelette in mug This Loaded Mediterranean Omelette can simply be made in a mug. Seasoning the eggs with more than a simple salt and pepper is the key to the complex flavors. This is best served with a side of tzatziki and warm pita.

Vegan Omelette in a Bag

A great vegan omelette option is mixing chickpea flour and water together. The consistency and flavor are remarkably similar to eggs plus you’ll still be getting a good amount of protein. Be sure to mix the flour and water up really well so you don’t end up with small dry clumps. Add in whatever veggies or vegan cheeses that sound good before popping into a pot of boiling water. The cook time for vegan omelette in a bag is that same as regular eggs so it’s simple meal to prepare for a big group.
