Making meals in a mug just may be my newest obsession and this French Toast Mug is where it all began! My son, Joey, and I saw a video on the Food Network on how to make 3 quick and easy meals in a mug.

How to make French Toast in a Mug
Like we said, this is the easiest french toast recipe ever! It literally takes less than five minutes. See our video below or print out the full recipe!
French Toast in a Mug
- 1 piece buttered bread (we used challah and I would totally recommend if you have it)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons syrup
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- a pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips (we used mini chocolate chips which melted really nicely)
- Powdered sugar ((optional))
- Cinnamon sugar ((optional))
- In your microwavable mug, mix together the egg, milk, syrup, cinnamon and salt until all combined
Cute off the sides of the bread (crusts) and slice your bread into square bit sized pieces
Add the bread to the mug and press them down so they are submerged within the liquid and the bread soaks in the egg mixture
- Add the chocolate chips to the mug and give a little stir to incorporate them in the mixture
- Sprinkle the optional cinnamon sugar on top
- Microwave for a total of 2 minutes stopping every 30 seconds (count to ten and start again - this is so it doesn't explode in your microwave)
- Let cool for about 1-2 minutes
- Sprinkle powdered sugar on top
