Quiche in a cup recipe

Want some quiche but don't want to make a whole dish? Then this quiche recipe is for you and you won't even need an oven because it's made in the microwave.

Serving Size:




  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp (60ml) milk
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 slice wholegrain bread, crusts removed and diced
  • 1 slice ham, chopped
  • 1/4 cup (30g) cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp chives, chopped


Step 1. In a large cup or mug, beat the eggs with the milk until well combined. Add the cream cheese and mix well.

Step 2. Stir in the bread and ham.

Step 3. Add the cheese and stir.

Step 4. Use some scissors to chop the chives into the cup and stir. Place into the microwave on high (1200watt) for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Garnish with extra ham and chives and serve.

Quiche in a cup


  • The cup in this image is a really large soup mug but this recipe will fit in a large coffee cup.
  • I have used tasty cheese and mozzarella cheese in this recipe and mozzarella is by far the better option.
  • You may need to change the time depending on your microwave as microwaves vary in power just like conventional ovens.
