Mug Omelet

If you can’t think of a breakfast menu or craving a snack in the afternoon, you should try the Mug Omelet! You can pair it with rice or use it as a filling for your sandwich. The best thing about this recipe is you don’t need to wash any extra kitchenware after eating! All you need is a microwave-safe mug or bowl, some ingredients in your refrigerator, and you’re set!

If this motivates you to try other savory recipes, you can also cook them in the Hanabishi Digital Microwave Oven HMO4IN130. It has a grill, convection, and air fryer function too!


  • 1-2 pcs egg
  • Cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional: tuna, mushrooms, ham, and herbs


  1. Coat the inside of a mug with cooking oil to prevent the egg from sticking.
  2. Break the egg and empty the contents in the mug. Beat with a fork until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Add the milk, cheese, green onions, salt, and pepper. Stir until well incorporated.
  4. Place inside the microwave and cook for 30 seconds on high heat.
  5. Remove the mug from the microwave and stir the contents with a fork.
  6. Cook the omelet in the microwave for another 30 seconds then stir the contents again. Repeat this process one more time or until the omelet has set.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Microwaved Sweet Potato

Microwaved Sweet Potato

If you’re thinking of a quick merienda recipe, then the microwaved sweet potato is perfect for you! It is filling, nutritious, and great for people who don’t have much time to prepare a snack. Just cook it inside your Hanabishi microwave if you’re feeling hungry.

To cook your sweet potato, you can use the Hanabishi Digital Microwave Oven HMO2IN136. It features a grill function so you can also make a grilled version of this recipe!


  • 1 pc sweet potato
  • ½ tbsp of butter
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Rinse the sweet potato in water and brush it thoroughly with a vegetable brush to get rid of any soil and debris. After that, wash it with water to remove all the particles and pat dry with a towel.
  2. Pierce the skin of the sweet potato using a fork four to five times. This ensures that the steam will escape while cooking.
  3. Put the sweet potato on a microwave-safe plate and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. 
  4. Turn the sweet potato on its other side and cook for another 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
  5. Pierce the sweet potato with a fork to check if it’s cooked thoroughly. Add 30 seconds to your cooking time if you need to microwave it again.
  6. Split the sweet potato in the middle and top with salt and butter. Serve and enjoy.

Cake In A Mug

Are you craving dessert but don’t want to buy a whole cake? If that’s the case, you can try to make a cake in a mug with your Hanabishi microwave! Just remember to use a microwavable mug for this recipe. If you’re a baker, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry. This is best served with vanilla ice cream for the best results!

If you don’t want your child reaching for your hot cakes in a mug while you’re not watching, the Hanabishi Digital Microwave Oven HMO4IN130 also includes a child lock.


  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ⅛ tsp baking powder
  • 1 ⅛ tbsp of canola oil
