- 8 oz turkey sausage
- 1/4 cup diced bell pepper
- 1/4 cup diced onion
- 1/4 cup chopped broccoli
- 1/4 cup diced mushrooms
- 4 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese
- 8 eggs
- sliced jalapeño pepper (optional)
- needed: Mason jars
Cook turkey sausage in a small skillet until browned. Chop into crumbles while cooking.
Toss diced bell peppers and onions, broccoli, and mushrooms together in a small bowl.
Spray inside jars with cooking spray. Add ¼ cup sausage, 1 tbsp cheese, ¼ cup diced vegetable mixture and 2–3 jalapeño pepper slices (if you’d like) to each jar.
Cover the jars and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. If freezing, move them to the fridge the night before to thaw before cooking.
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 (1½–2 minutes depending on your microwave).
