  • turkey sausage
    8 oz
  • diced bell pepper
    1/4 cup
  • diced onion
    1/4 cup
  • chopped broccoli
    1/4 cup
  • diced mushrooms
    1/4 cup
  • shredded cheddar cheese
    4 tbsp
  • jalapeño pepper (sliced, optional)
  • eggs


  1. Cook the turkey sausage in a small skillet until browned. Chop into crumbles while cooking.

  2. Toss the dice bell pepper, onion, broccoli, and mushrooms together in a small bowl.

  3. Prepare the jars by spraying the insides with cooking spray. Add 1/4 cup sausage, 1 tablespoon cheese, 1/4 cup diced vegetables mixture and 2 to 3 jalapeno pepper slices (if using) to each jar.

  4. Cover and store the jars for up to 4 days in the refrigerator, on in the freezer for up to 3 months. If storing in the freezer, transfer the frozen jars to the fridge the night before you plan to eat them to thaw.

  5. When ready to eat, add 2 eggs to the jar and stir well (or seal the jar and shake). Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until eggs are set (it may take 1-1/2 to 2 minutes depending on your microwave).
