21 Recipes You Can Make in a Microwave

I am all about easy dinners, but making them simply in the microwave is an answer to all rushed parents, or single college students. Here are 21 Recipes You Can Make in a Microwave that are simple and delicious.

It’s been a crazy week over at our house, but we are officially moved out of Downtown Los Angeles and settled into a much more kid-friendly suburb in Southern California.

I had the genius idea while we were moving to get rid of all of our old dish ware because I was so sick of ours (it was literally a random assortment of dishes from our college years before we were married).

PLUS – it was one less thing I would have to pack up. We got rid of everything except for photo prop plates and a few of our favorite mugs with the idea that we would order some new dish ware as soon as we moved.

With all the craziness of getting settled, it totally slipped my mind until I went to cook dinner and we had nothing to use.

Not only that, but I was SO SICK of eating out for every meal the past few days while we have been moving that I was just craving something that didn’t come in a box or a bag.

Enter in: these delicious mug recipes.

I have eaten probably 4 omelettes in a mug since we’ve been here and the bagel breakfast sandwiches are my go-to lunch.

I started looking at some of the recipes on Pinterest that you could make in a microwave – but these are my favorites.

Some people are just so creative. I mean enchiladas and mac and cheese? I won’t be needing new dishes anytime soon.

Here are 21 of the BEST recipe, you can make in a microwave. They will not disappoint.
