1 Minute LOW CARB Mason Jar Omelettes

1 Minute Mason Jar Omelettes Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

You can’t do much with a mason jar outside of storing things or mug cakes (unless you’re a magician) and since I have about a million of them in various sizes I wanted to change that. Today we make some REALLY quick MASON JAR OMELETTES!

Here’s the deal…for a 2 egg omelette depending on how many ingredients you add in, you’ll wanna use at least a half pint mason jar. If you wanna use more eggs than that then my rule of thumb is use a mason jar big enough so that your omelette mix doesn’t come more than 3/4 of the way up.

Now this recipe is super easy. Coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, add your eggs in, a little black pepper, some bacon bits, whatever chopped up vegetables you want (I like bell peppers and onion), and 1/8 cup of your favorite cheese. Shake it up like you mean it, take the cover off, and throw it in the microwave for around 1-2 minutes. If it starts to overflow because your mason jar is too small then just stop your microwave for a couple seconds until it settles and continue microwaving it until it looks cooked.

So there you guys go, a quick mason jar omelette that you can fix up to your liking! Throw it on a plate or just eat right out of the jar. It also tastes great cold so you could make it the night before and take it with you on-the-go!

Here is the recipe:

  • 2 Large Whole Eggs
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon (7g) Bacon Bits
  • Your Choice Vegetables (Chopped)
  • 1/8 Cup (14g) Your Favorite Cheese (Full, Reduced, or Fat Free is up to you)

  4. Remove the cover and microwave for 1-2 minutes


  • Add egg whites for more protein!
