Two microwave mug meals perfect for a dorm

When I was a freshman in college, I barely had time to sit down and watch a full Netflix show, let alone travel down the hall to the communal kitchen and cook a meal. I usually opted for frozen meals or picking up some good ol’ Chick-fil-A when pressed for time. Recently, I dove into the world of microwave mug meals. Even though I have moved into a house equipped with a kitchen, this hasn’t made me any more inclined to cook a meal every time I eat. With little to no prep time, mug meals are my new go-to when I am rushing out the door.

1. S’mores french toast

2 slices bread

1 tsp. butter

1 egg

3 tbsp. milk

dash cinnamon

1 tbsp. mini chocolate chips

2 tbsp. marshmallows

Begin by putting the butter at the bottom of a mug. Melt in the microwave for about 20 seconds and swish the butter around to coat your mug.


Cube the bread and add it to the mug.

In a separate bowl, mix the egg, milk and cinnamon together.


Pour the mixture over the bread. Top with chocolate chips and marshmallows.


Microwave for about 1 minute and 20 seconds. If the mixture is still runny, microwave for 10 seconds until it is set.

1/2 tsp. dried italian herbs (optional)

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.


Mix in the milk and olive oil until it is a batter-like consistency.


Top batter with the sauce.


Sprinkle cheese of choice and dried italian herbs.


Microwave for about 1 minute and 20 seconds, or until it starts rising.
