Omlette In A Jar…Recipe

Omlette In A Jar…..

Pans, shams!  This recipe only requires one jar and cooks in less than 2 minutes! 

   2 Tablespoons Milk ( use Silk Brand unsweetened Almond Milk to reduce fat and calories!)
   Handful of Spinach
   2 tablespoons Shredded Cheese (Feta or Fresh Mozzarella are MUCH lower calorie choices!)
   1-2 tablespoons Chopped LEAN Deli Ham or Deli Turkey
   2 Eggs
   Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
   Non-stick Cooking Spray

Step-by-Step directions

   Non-stick Cooking Spray 
Spray a 16-ounce glass jar, the interior of course 
     2 Tablespoons MIlk      (I use Silk Brand Unsweetened Almond MIlk)
   Handful of Spinach
   2 tablespoons Shredded Cheese ( Feta & Fresh Mozzarella are LOWER
                                                                               in calories and fat…)
   1-2 tablespoons Chopped Deli LEAN Ham or Deli Turkey.  
Add the Milk, Spinach, Cheese and Meat to the jar.
   2 Eggs- Crack those babies into the jar!
   Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
 Season with Salt and Pepper then place the lid back on and shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds, until the eggs are pale yellow.


Remove the lid and microwave for 90 seconds.


Carefully remove from the microwave and check for doneness. Return to the microwave for 15-30 seconds to finish cooking as needed.


Remove from jar and serve warm.  This works in a regular oven as well, if you have an oven proof container.  I use a shallow non-stick skillet and finish in the oven- it is the same principal. (See comment below on using oven).

Just a fun way to make an omlette!  I often make them with chopped green onions, feta cheese & fresh minced parsley. 



  1. What are the directions for the oven?

  2. Sorry for the delay! I answered this sooner, but I had trouble getting my comments to "stick". In the oven, use a small,non-stick pan. Jars are fine, however, it is unlikely you have one that is oven safe. Any pyrex will work- you may have some nice sizes in that to use. Or, cook on a medium heat in a small non-stick skillet with metal handles. When you can separate eggs from the edge with a spatula, place in hot oven to finish. The eggs will fluff up and take the exact shape of the pan- no turning needed. Restaurants do this with omelets, that is how they make them fluff. I do not fold them over, just finish in the oven and it pour out of the pan. With a good non-stick pan, it does not even need cooking spray.
