When you’re a college student you don’t have much to work with in a dorm when you want to cook a meal. That’s why I’ve picked my top two favorite microwave mug recipes to share with you. They’re simple and easy. All you need is a mug and a microwave; something that is a staple in a college dorms. Enjoy!


Microwave MacnCheese in a Mug

1/3 cup pasta
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. Combine the pasta and water in a large mug.
2. Microwave for three minutes, then stir. The water might overflow when its cooking, but don’t worry about that!
3. Repeat this for about 4 more minutes, stirring at each 2-minute interval. The water should absorb completely and the pasta will be cooked through. Check the pasta if it needs another minute or two to cook fully.
4. Remove your mug from the microwave and stir in the milk and cheese. Microwave for another minute.
