Egg Mug Awareness: A Must-Read Guide

Some tips and tricks for your egg mug fix...

1. Don't worry if the contents of your mug expand and rise to crazy-high heights while in the microwave. This is okay and expected. They'll calm down after you're done nuking them.

2. Our egg mug recipes are 100000% guilt-free. Sometimes we eat two at a time. Sometimes we pair one with a lovely Fuji.

3. On the go? Wrap your microwave-made scramble in a high-fiber tortilla or stuff it inside a Sandwich Thin.
