A bright crisp sunny morning was perfect for a Pimento Cheese Omelet in a Jar

I love a grab and go breakfast, even if I’m only going to the porch

And it’s so much fun to eat something in a jar

Spray the jar with cooking oil spray and break the eggs into the jar

Adding  a dollop {Tablespoon} of cream, milk or water will keep your eggs creamy

Scramble the eggs in the jar with a fork and season with salt and pepper

Add a generous spoonful of homemade Pimento Cheese, or 1 ounce of any grated cheese or torn up slices

Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds, remove and stir

Repeat, microwaving for 30 seconds at 50% power.  Be patient, cook in short spans and stir

When eggs begin to set around the perimeter, stir stir stir and return to the microwave for 20 seconds at 50% power

You don’t want to overcook this, or you will have rubbery eggs…soft and creamy and piping hot now, just right!

To keep your mornings hassle free, make up some jars in advance and stash in the fridge.  Add veggies, cooked sausage or bacon or herbs.  You may have to adjust cooking times according to ingredients and your microwave.  Cook in 20-30 second increments at 50% power for best results

BONUS!  These eggs stay warm much longer than regular scrambled eggs because the heat from the jar keeps them cozy

    Aw man, now you make me miss my microwave even more! (We haven’t had one for about a year now – long story). Ah well, I can always make omelets the old fashioned way. The pimento cheese is an awesome idea for an addition to it. Yum!
