3. Whisk together the eggs and cream and season with salt (in moderation) and pepper. Divide among the mugs and mix to combine all ingredients.

4. Microwave the quiches for 4 minutes. Let sit 1 minute. Check to see if quiches are cooked. If necessary, microwave for an additional 1-2 minutes, being careful not to overcook. Serve warm.
