Have you ever tried one of those Just Crack An Egg breakfast cups? I haven’t until recently and I’ve got to say, it’s pretty tasty. This is my version of one of those. It has fluffy scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon and cheddar cheese all served in a handy jar. They are super easy to make and the microwave does all of the cooking so these are done in less than 2 minutes. These are perfect for those busy weekday mornings when you want a satisfying breakfast, but don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.
Everything can be prepped in advance and stored in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. I used frozen diced potatoes and just thawed them out by heating them in the microwave. The bacon you can cook ahead and crumble or use the prepackaged real bacon pieces. I have found that either one work well. The ingredients are layered in small glass jars so all you have to do is grab one, crack an egg into it, stir and microwave and you are on your way to a yummy breakfast. If you don’t have small glass jars, you can store the ingredients in zip top bags. Just dump them into a microwavable container and add in the egg when your are ready to eat.
Another great thing about these tasty little jars, is that you can customize them to you liking. You can add ham, peppers and onions. If you like your veggies a little softer, just sauté them a little during the prep time. Whatever you choose, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast in minutes.
So pull out those glass jars you have stored in the pantry and read below to see how to make your own.
