Spanish Omelet in a Mug

Years ago I would laugh if someone suggested I try egg beaters. Since I discovered Hungry Girl and her many recipes for Egg Mugs I am a believer. I love her California Love Mug, Denver Omelette in a Mug and Egg Mug Mexicali. It is also so easy to make up your own recipe. Any omelet or quiche you have ever had can be adapted to an egg mug recipe. I have come up with a few and I will be sure to post them all one day. This is my recipe inspired by a Spanish Omelet. The flavor in this mug will remind you of a Spanish omelet you might get at a Diner or waffle house. It is loaded with veggies and the salsa/ketchup topping is sweet and spicy. YUM!

Spanish Omelet in a Mug

2 tbsp. chopped green bell pepper
2 tbsp. chopped onion
1 tbsp. chopped celery
1 medium mushroom chopped
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
1 wedge Laughing Cow Light Original cheese, cut into pieces(or one slice of Sargento 40 cal. Swiss cheese)
1-1/2 tbsp. ketchup
1-1/2 tbsp. salsa(Pace Mild)
1 dash Tabasco
Salt and pepper, to taste


In a small bowl, combine ketchup, salsa and Tabasco and set aside.

Spray a large microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. Add veggies and microwave for 1 - 2 minutes, until softened.

Blot any excess liquid from veggies. Add egg substitute and microwave for 1 minute.

Add cheese and lightly stir. Microwave for an additional 45 - 60 seconds, until scramble is just set.

Season with salt and pepper to taste, stir and top with salsa ketchup topping. Eat up!


Variation: Microwave veggies add ketchup, salsa and tabsaco set aside. Prepare egg mug with just egg beaters and cheese. Or prepare an omelet in a non-stick pan. Top with sauce and veggies.
