WW Recipe of the Day: Morning Salmon Omelette in a Mug
Mug meals are some of the best, as there is basically no clean up except the cup! They are also mighty tasty and can be made in advance for smooth serving.
Good to know all you have to do is remove this from the fridge, cook for 2 minutes and press the coffee button.
When time is tight, this morning omelette in a mug is the way to go for a high protein, low calorie, low carb breakfast.
But there's no reason to limit this delicious salmon omelet in a mug to breakfast. It works equally well as a nourishing lunch or simple supper. If you're looking for 1 person portions, mug meals like this are ideal.
This time I used hot pepper jack and canned salmon which really makes a good combo. Looking forward to Italian, Spanish and Greek version in the days to come.

Pay attention to stopping the microwave every 20 seconds or so, to avoid the eggs exploding in the microwave. This tip comes from experience!
Spraying or brushing the cup with oil is essential. A very slight spray is all that you need to avoid the eggs sticking to the cup and making clean up tedious.
Any leftover veggies from last night that fit in an omelette will work here. Try mushrooms, spinach, broccoli.
Also try goat cheese and any other good breakfast melting cheese.
Tuna or smoked salmon can replace the canned salmon.
A spoonful of salsa is a colorful addition.
Serve your favorite morning brew and a small bowl of berries or other fruit. A slice of whole grain toast rounds out everything nicely.
Ways to Use Leftovers
