An extremely easy quiche that only takes 1 minute to cook.
Its great for any student with limited time or kitchen space.
Its also good if you want to make the most of your summer and spend your time outside, instead of cooking (not that cooking isn't fun).
Perfect for breakfast, lunch or even just a snack.

If the flavor combination isn't to your taste you could try:
Tomato, spring onion and garlic
Bacon or ham with cheese
Mushroom and onion

The combinations are endless...
Hope you enjoy!!

This looks DELICIOUS! I've made the cake in a mug, but never quiche. My family loves bacon and cheese quiche, so this would make a wonderful after school snack. Great photos and step by step details. THANKS for posting this!

I am a nationwide delivery driver and it's hard to eat healthy on the road. Just having bought an electric cooler, I could use your idea to microwave food at truck stops & save money! Thanks
