Egg Mug & Black and Tan

I know I'm kind of late to the game of mug recipes that I've seen around, but I actually tried one! I didn't go by a recipe, I just put my regular scramble egg ingredients into a mug and stuck it in the microwave and voila! Instant nutritious breakfast. Pair it with my copycat version of Edgehill Cafe's Black and Tan and I am a happy breakfast-eater!
I know that having eggs in the mornings is obviously a good source of protein, but it also helps me stay full longer. It's easy to go by Starbucks and grab their feta-spinach-egg white wrap but that eventually adds up. I'm glad that now I can whip up something and still get to work on time for less and I know where my ingredients came from and that they were properly washed. That being said, I love adding tomatoes, a little onion, and spinach to my scramble because you get some veggies in there on top of your dairy. I also love to add a little kick to it with the feta cheese (gouda is also really good with eggs) and a tiny bit of cayenne pepper along with salt and pepper. I use a few drops of olive oil to grease my pan but if you're using the mug it's not that necessary unless you wanted the added benefits of good fats.

Wash your veggies with a veggie wash so you know they are clean!
Buy free-range eggs-the way you can tell that the chickens that produce the eggs are healthy and have a happier life is if the yolk is an orangey-yellow color.
Whisk all the ingredients (minus the seasoning) with a fork in the mug before you put it in the microwave.
Add seasoning last, then fluff it all together.

Black and Tan

Mix according to taste:
Freshly ground coffee (tastes so much better and you can find cheap grinders that work well)
Hazelnut syrup (about 1/2 tablespoon)
Vanilla almond milk (about 1/2 cup or less)
2 shakes of cinnamon

Enjoy a fresh start to your day! As Zooey would say:
