4.) Instant Mac and Cheese Cups

5.) Instant Rice
If you have Instant Rice on hand you will love this method. You will add 1/2 cup Instant rice into a coffee mug. Then you will choose the small cup setting and let the hot water pour in. Then let the hot water soak into the rice. Within a few minutes, you have tender fluffy rice.
Whether you reach for hot chocolate or coffee you can pair with alcohol to make coffee cocktails to enjoy after a hard day or entertaining your guests.
If you enjoy pasta, you have to try this recipe out. Take 8 ounces of water, or do the small cup. Add around 1/4 cup pasta to a mug. Brew the water in Keurig and then let sit for 3-4 minutes. Pour the water out, and brew more hot water and let it sit again for another 3 minutes. Repeat till the pasta is tender.
Then add in all your toppings like shredded cheese, oil, etc. Or eat it plain. Smaller pasta works best, as you don’t want longer pasta or it will clump together.
8.) Dalgona Coffee
Try out this Gingerbread Dalgona Coffee for a mid-day snack or morning pick me up. This is full of warm spices, loads of flavor and downright delicious.
9.) Baby Food from Happy Healthy Mama
If your little one eats Instant style baby food, the Keurig can swoop in. Add your baby food powder, add hot water with brewing, let set and then serve up creamy cereal.
10.) Steamed Vegetables
Take frozen vegetables and place around 1/2 cup of veggies in a larger mug. Brew 8-10 ounces over the vegetables, and allow them to sit for a minute or two. Drain off water and repeat if needed until vegetables are warm. Then season as you would like.
