Take your eggs to go with this easy mason jar breakfast.

omelet croppsed

Take your eggs to go- and not just on a sandwich. When you don’t have time to whip up an omelet in a skillet, you can nuke one in a mason jar. Yes, seriously! Keeps up to two days in the fridge.

Serves 1

1 large egg
2 large egg whites
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 oz. grated mozzarella
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
3 basil leaves, chopped

Grease a wide-mouth pint jar with cooking spray. Place egg, egg whites, paprika, salt and pepper in jar. Secure lid and shake vigorously to break up the egg yolk. Stir in mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and basil. Cover and chill overnight or use right away. In the morning, remove lid and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Check for doneness and continue to cook in 25-second intervals if needed until eggs are set.
