A few months ago, I discoved the “Just Crack an Egg” product in the grocery store, and bought some. But they are a little expensive, and I figured I could make my own. My kids love these, it’s a great way for them to actually eat a complete breakfast!
I initially prepped the varieties HERE, but this week we tried and love these!
Prepped Ahead Egg Scrambles with Potatoes, Bacon and Peppers…..Just Crack an Egg! (Makes 4)
- 2 bell peppers, seeded and diced (I used one red and one yellow, but any color will work
- 8oz of potatoes, cubed and cooked (I actually just microwaved mine this time, let it cool, and then diced it up)
- 2 slices of bacon (thick cut), cooked and crumbled
- 8 TB shredded cheddar
- 8 eggs
Get 4 wide-mouthed, pint sized mason jars (affiliate link) ready. I like to use these plastic lids (affiliate link) rather than the metal.
Divide the diced bell peppers and potatoes among the 4 jars.
In separate containers that will fit inside the jars, divide the bacon and the cheese. I use these – after I eat the olives – because they fit in the top of the jars and the lid seals them in. I just like olives. I wash them and reuse them….lots of things come in these cups though. Mandarin oranges, fruit cocktail, applesauce….you can use any container or baggie that fits though.
When ready to cook and eat, mix the cheese and bacon into the other ingredients, crack two eggs over it all, mix, and microwave for 1 minute on high.
Remove from microwave (be careful of hot jars), stir, and cook again for 1 minute.
Be careful, as the jar does get hot!
