Dinner for one person shouldn't be difficult. All you need is something gooey, melty and cozy that you can bring into bed and clutch with both hands while simultaneously streaming Netflix and managing a DIY face mask.

Turns out the humble mug is a prime vessel for single-serving pot pies, small-portion pastas and healthy lasagna for one. Perfecting the mug meal is quite easy: You can take the super quick route and mix fresh veggies, egg and rice into a mug and microwave it, or get a bit fancier by kneading a buttery pie crust and baking it on top. Voila! An entire meal, for one. The best part? Dishes will be a cinch.

Finish with a mini mug cake under the covers for the coziest weeknight EVER.
