Scrambled Eggs in a Mason Jar

By Slimshoppin @slimshoppin

I have Fillmore containers for making my breakfast this week super easy. In case you don’t know – I was the 1,000 Facebook fan and they sent me an assortment of mason jars. I use them all the time!

I bring my breakfast to work, especially in the summer – with the kids off school, I sleep until the last possible second before having to get ready for work. On Monday I contemplated just taking an egg to work – putting it into a Tupperware container and hoping it wouldn’t break on the way to work. I was just going to cook it int he microwave when I got to work. I couldn’t find a container – then I saw my jars on the shelf and a great idea popped into my head.

I’ll just put all the ingredients into the mason jar and it will be safe on my short commute to work – and I’ll have a deluxe breakfast!

So, into my jar went:

2 eggs
splash of skim milk
fresh chives
red and yellow bell peppers (a few tablespoons)
1 green onion
fresh corn (about 2 tablespoons)
salt and pepper to taste
tablespoon of cheese

I cracked the eggs into the jar, and whisked them together. Add the rest of the ingredients. Once I got to work, I just shook it up, took the top off and cooked it in the microwave for 1.5 minutes.

You’ll know when it’s done because it won’t be runny. If it’s still seems pretty wet, microwave it a little longer. Watch it though – because depending on the size of your jar it may puff up over the top – If it starts to do that – just stop it, wait a few seconds and then keep going. I also placed a paper towel over the top in case it splattered.

Some days I added 1/2 a cooked potato to it, reduced fat turkey sausage. It’s a great way to use up any leftover veggies you may have. This with a side of watermelon or cantaloupe was a great way to start the day and it kept me full until lunch.

What’s is your easy – go to breakfast??

So if you follow my twin sister Biz’s blog you know she’s on day 48 of Insanity!!! I am super proud of her, so much so, that I may jump on the insanity bandwagon too! We’ve been talking about it pretty much every day – I think it’s the push I need to get into the next lower numbers on the scale. Until then, I’m including a mini challenge – the 30 day plank challenge.

I know a lot of people HATE doing planks, but I don’t hate them! So we’ll see if I can make it through the 30 days!

Have a great weekend – it’s my half day on Friday – so looking forward to getting errands done that I’ve put off – even in the 95 degree heat!
