Eggs in a Jar Three Ways

Course: Breakfast
Keyword: Breakfast Favorites, High Protein
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Denise


  • 8-12 eggs either 2 or 3 per jar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter cut into 1 Tbsp cubes
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 cup fresh vegetables of choice diced (optional)
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • Dried chives and basil
  • 4 mason jars or jars with lids


  • Add 2-3 eggs to each jar.  Add 1 Tbsp cream or milk and 1 Tbsp butter to each jar.  Top with 1/4 cup shredded cheese in jar.  If using diced veggies, add them now, roughly 1/4 cup in each jar.  Sprinkle each with salt, pepper, chives and basil.
  • Cover with lid and shake.  Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • When ready to cook, prepare as desired.  Jar can be poured into skillet on stove to make scrambled eggs.
  • Alternatively, the jar can be microwaved for 2-2 1/2 minutes, mixing halfway through.  Eggs can be eaten directly out of the jar for an easy, “on the go” breakfast.  Microwaved eggs can also be wrapped in a tortilla for an easy egg burrito.  (We also love some hot sauce and avocado in our burrito, too!)
  • Get creative and add any veggies you want to your egg jar as well!
