Good morning! Are you ready to throw together a tasty mason jar breakfast? Now, just because you have started making jar recipes doesn’t mean you have to forego your good ol favorite breakfast meal of bacon & eggs. You CAN make eggs in a jar you know! 🙂
I didn’t put any quantities in the recipe, because really..it’s all about how you like your meals. Some like more cheese, others like to add garlic. You can really make this your own!
Bacon & Eggs in a Jar – Mason Jar Breakfast Recipe
- 2 Eggs
- Fresh Spinach
- Shredded Cheese
- Dash Salt & Pepper
- Mix Eggs, salt & pepper, spinach and cheese together in a bowl
- Pour mixture into a mason jar
- Cook in microwave from 1:30-2:00 minutes (checking often)
- The egg mixture will puff up during cooking but deflate when out of the microwave, so don't freak out if you see it rise higher than the jar.
- Top with some additional cheese & bacon crumbles
We do the same thing with a sealed baggie.. lots of folks… lots of add your own what ever and lots of fun… Anything such as mushrooms onions cheese and list goes on… great for group event but we boil the bags not micro them.. Few glasses of champagne and orange juice helps also..

I’ve been told it’s not good to put plastics or baggies in the microwave as they melt of carsenagetics that are cancerous if you consume them so be a careful on that one.
BTW, my eggs were overcooked at 50 seconds, so I suggest you try this and check every :30. Might also be a good idea to cover with a wet paper towel to keep the eggs moist.
Thanks for sharing, Rian. 🙂
How far in advance can you make this? Have you mixed all your ingredients and put them in the mason jars and left it in the refrigerator for a few days? Or do you cook it and eat it right away?

Thank you …. This will work well for my 3 grandchildren that I’m raising. Each of them are special needs and I try to always give them a protein breakfast as I drive them to daycare so they don’t eat all the sugar breakfast that the schools offer.
im amazed. I love this idea
Beaten eggs can be frozen. The mason jar looks cool, but if you freeze beaten eggs in other containers, you can defrost and use at your leisure.
I never really liked eggs, but I love these. I substituted basil for the spinach, left out the bacon and they were delicious.
Thanks for a great recipe.
Thanks for sharing, Charlotte! 🙂
