Ever since making my 5 Minute Microwave French Toast Mug a few weeks in the past, I’ve needed to strive a savory model (as a result of I’m alllll about savory breakfast). I’m about to exit of city once more and desperately attempting to make use of up the previous couple of leftover elements in my fridge earlier than I am going, so I assumed now was a great time. For this savory microwave breakfast mug I used some left over French bread, leftover rotisserie rooster, a handful of child spinach, and somewhat shredded cheese. It’s so easy, however so extraordinarily satisfying! It’s like a single serving breakfast strata!
What I believe I like essentially the most about this dish is that you need to use nearly any meat, vegetable, or cheese that you’ve got available. I used rotisserie rooster, however you would use nearly any deli meat as a replacement (or miss the meat all collectively). For greens you would use frozen broccoli (chopped tremendous), frozen spinach, mushrooms, inexperienced onions, diced bell peppers, or perhaps a couple grape tomatoes. I occurred to have cheddar available, which makes a pleasant coloration distinction, however you would do one thing like feta, shredded Parmesan, smoked gouda, or pepper jack. There are simply so many choices. If you consider the flavour themes that eating places do with omelets, you would do the identical themes with this savory microwave breakfast mug (assume mediterranean, southwest, Denver, backyard, and so forth.).
I made a decision to not worth out this recipe as a result of I used to be utilizing such small portions of elements and so they had been all leftovers, so it could be almost not possible to get even a common worth estimate. But, I believe the concept of re-using leftovers for a brand new meal is essential sufficient to face by itself. 🙂
