egg breakfast in a jar

egg breakfast in a jarOne of the easiest breakfasts to make!  Egg breakfast in a jar takes minutes to prepare especially when short on time.  All you need is a jar with a cover.  The ingredients below are a guideline.  Check your fridge for other items such as chopped red bell pepper, tomatoes, leftover chicken, breakfast sausage, smoked salmon, salsa.  Use just about anything you would eat for breakfast.  If serving brekkie in a jar is your thang, then you’ll enjoy making my overnight oats.

Studies show that children who skip breakfast tend to be late or absent from school.  Breakfast gives us the energy to start our day and if you skip it you may end up eating more during the day.  Those who eat breakfast have improved concentration and performance in the classroom or at the office.  Go egg breakfast in a jar! 🙂

Did you know that on October 8, people around the world will come together to celebrate World Egg Day?  Canada has over 1,200 egg farming families from coast to coast who produce fresh, local, high-quality eggs year-round.  Get cracking and salute these farmers.

you will need (serves 2)

4 eggs
1/2 cup grated cheese (cheddar or parmesan)
1/4 cup chopped onion (I used spring onion)
1/2 cup chopped ham, bacon, or prosciutto
2 tablespoons sun-dried tomato pesto
2 mason jars with lids


Grease jars with non-stick cooking spray (I did not do this and clean-up required some elbow grease).  Crack two eggs in each mason jar.  Divide the remaining ingredients between the jars.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cover and shake.  Remove lids and microwave on low for 4 minutes.

the culinary chase’s note:

Be sure to change the power strength on the microwave otherwise, 4 minutes will make the egg mixture too dry.  Enjoy!
