Do you have a mug and a microwave? Then you're in luck. We cranked up the watts in the Test Kitchen to experiment with everything you can make in a mug. We originally thought this would be perfect for dorm living, and it is, but it turns out you don't have to live in a dorm to love a Double Chocolate Brownie that cooks in 2 minutes. 


  1. Eggs in a Mug

    This hearty 3-egg omelet cooks in about 3 minutes in the microwave, and it's super easy to customize. 

  2. Triple Berry Muffin in a Mug

    It's even made with whole grains. But all we taste is a delicious berry muffin. 

  3. French Toast in a Mug

    This one surprised us. It must be the cinnamon and maple syrup, but it tastes just like an ooey-gooey cinnamon roll, especially when it's still warm. 

  4. Mexican Meatloaf in a Mug

    The concept might not sound appealing, but anything that tastes like a delicious taco is ok with us. 

  5. Teriyaki Pineapple Rice in a Mug

    For a quick and tasty vegetarian dish, we loved the combination of sweet pineapple with teriyaki sauce and edamame. 

  6. Double Chocolate Brownie in a Mug

    Not just a chocolate brownie in a mug, a DOUBLE chocolate brownie in a mug! Don't worry if you don't have cool whip. Ice cream works, too. We tested it. 

  7. Caramel Pretzel Dessert in a Mug

    Everything about this sounds delicious and everything about this tastes delicious. We made it several times ... just to be sure.
