Living in a dorm sometimes you don’t have access to all the fancy necessities to cook a gourmet meal, or even just a pot to put on the stove, but have no fear you can still cook some delicious things!

All you need is a microwavable mug and a microwave.

 

French Toast

Yes, you can make french toast in a mug! I didn’t believe it at first either.

What you need

Milk

Eggs

Bread (wheat seems to work the best)

Vanilla (can substitute with some syrup is needed)

Cinnamon

First whisk eggs together with milk, vanilla, and cinnamon

Soak cut up pieces of bread in the mixture

Place in microwave for 60-90 seconds depending on the way your microwave cooks food

AND SERVE

Add some of your favorite toppings like syrup, chocolate chips, or fruit to taste.

 

Eggs

The easiest eggs to make in the microwave are your standard scrambled.

Crack eggs into a mug, I find up to three works the best

Whisk eggs with salt and pepper, adding milk will help to fluff your eggs

Microwave on high for 45 seconds, stir

Microwave for another 30-45 seconds

And TADA

Add some cheese, herbs, or even salsa for added flavor

 

Mac and Cheese

½ cup of macaroni noodles

½ cup of water

Shredded cheese

Salt and Pepper

Add noodles and water to large mug cook on high for 1 min, stir

Cook for another minute, stir

Continue to cook in 30-second intervals until macaroni are thoroughly cooked

If it is getting too dry add a bit of water

Stir in cheese, salt, and pepper

Enjoy!

Note: Be careful to watch your macaroni because the water is prone to overflow during the cooking process

 

All of these meals can also be made in a microwave safe bowl as well.

These are great alternatives for when you get tired of campus food or ordering pizza.
