Let’s be real here, a lot of uni students either don’t have time to make proper meals to eat or don’t have the skills. A lot of us would rather just settle for leftovers or making 2 minute noodles. Well, I’m here to tell you there’s another option–making mug meals in a mug or a ramekin. It’s simple and ends up with delicious results. So, here are 10 delicious ramekin recipes that will keep you warm in winter.
1. Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies
Deep-dish chocolate chip cookies taste absolutely delicious on their own, but also feel free to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream with it, just to undercut the richness of the chocolate.
2. Molten Chocolate Cakes
Molten chocolate cakes are the perfect dessert for a cold winter’s night, when you’re watching a movie and curled up in a blanket. More importantly, this recipe is incredibly easy to make so if you’re a novice at cooking or baking, don’t feel terrified.
3. Chicken and Mushroom Pot Pies
I’ve made these chicken and mushroom pot pies for my family and myself on several occasions and it was quite a treat to eat. Add some seasoning and spices to the meal (i.e. salt, pepper, paprika etc.) and turn it into something unforgettable.
4. Microwave Mug Pizzas
I’ve made these microwave mug pizzas for myself several times through the uni semester and I have to say that it really does taste like pizza (and it definitely will make you crave a proper sized one as well!). But if it’s too simple for you, there’s always the option to add toppings and seasoning to this recipe.
5. Breakfast Quiche
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it’s important to make sure that you eat something that is both nutritious and delicious when you wake up in the morning. These breakfast quiches tick both of those boxes. Just make sure you prepare some of the ingredients beforehand.
6. Microwave Thai Green Curry
If you have a particular craving for Thai food or just feel like trying something new, I would definitely recommend making this Thai Green Curry. It’s simple and also a delicious treat!
7. Smores Chocolate Mug Cake
Foodies with a chocolate obsession will love this smores chocolate mug cake as it’s both chocolate-y and Instagram worthy. After making the recipe, feel free to add chocolate syrup, mini marshmallows, ice-cream, crumpled biscuits etc! It almost makes you feel like you’re sitting by a campfire.
8. Breakfast Sandwiches
Here is yet another mug meal for people that love breakfast. These breakfast sandwiches are also great for people that love eggs and bacon.
9. Chicken and Dumpling Mug Meals
As someone that loves, loves, loves chicken and dumplings, this mug meal is a delight! But if you’re not a meat-eater, you can always take out the chicken and it will still be satisfying to eat.
10. Vegan Cinnamon Roll
I’m not vegan and I’ve never attempted this recipe so I can’t say this for sure, but these cinnamon rolls look quite indulgent.
- Make sure the ramekins or mugs you use to make these meals are microwave safe and oven-safe, otherwise you will end up with disastrous results.
- Each microwave is different so the time your meals takes to be fully cooked will vary. Check every 20 seconds to see if it’s over or underdone.
- If you want to remove or substitute one of the ingredients in the recipe, go for it!
