Mason Jar Breakfast To Go

Breakfast-in-a-mason-jar At the Picket Fence

Do you like to have breakfast for dinner at your house?

It is one of our absolute favorite things to do at ours. Kinda almost feels a little naughty, doesn’t it?

Maybe that’s why my kids like it!

Besides, it is a known fact that breakfast foods can be eaten at any time of the day while the same can’t be said for lunch and dinner.

I mean, I have NO problem at all having leftover dessert for breakfast but I draw the line at meatloaf or tuna salad!


And I’ve decided that since breakfast food is already fairly close to perfection the only way to improve upon it was to put it in a mason jar. Isn’t everything better in a mason jar?


Layers of scrambled eggs (I like to add goat cheese to mine for extra creaminess), crispy hash browns and then crumbled bacon on top. What better way to start the day? Or afternoon? Or evening?

And to take this breakfast ‘to go’, simply tie on a fork with a piece of twine.

This would be perfect to send with kids as they rush out the door for school!


I’m sorry but there is just no way to get meatloaf to look that cute…even in a mason jar!

  1. Oh yes, I’d eat breakfast from a mason jar, in a black car, from a purple jar…oh my, Dr. Seuss came to my mind, I’ll stop now! :)
    I love breakfast anytime of the day and this is such a cute idea! Hope you’ll pop over and share it at AMM!
    Blessings sweet ladies!!!

  4. LOVE this idea Vanessa! We are going to Disney soon and I’ve already prepped the kids that we are eating breakfast in our room. This is a PERFECT solution! Thanks!

  5. Such a clever idea- and the twine and fork make it super cute!- of course I’m smitten with anything in a jar- now the gears are turning- mini pancakes next?
    Thanks for sharing :)

  6. That looks like a great idea! I could eat breakfast anytime of the day or night. A lot of the time when we go out Sunday after church, we go to this little diner and I have breakfast. Love it!


  7. I love this idea … perfect for a rushed morning or a great way to take breakfast to a friend. I’ll have to remember this the next time a friend has a baby … taking breakfast in mason jars would be so fun!

  8. Of course everything is cuter in a mason jar! Well, except maybe meatloaf ;)
    I love the idea of breakfast in a jar – sounds yummy and I wish I had one right now!

  9. What a cute idea. As for meatloaf . . . I think if you made the individual meatloaf (in a muffin tin) and layered with mashed potatoes it would be cute. BUT still not as cute as breakfast!

  10. How lovely of you ladies to include my mason jar salad! Greatly appreciated! And we too loved the naughty breakfast for dinner … and, yes, it certainly is so much better in a mason jar!

  11. I would eat breakfast out of a mason jar at any time during the day. I love breakfast foods…much better than regular food! Super cute idea.

  16. This is pretty cute and creative. It makes the eggs and bacon even more delectable :) I might have to borrow a couple of these ideas when making deserts or cakes. I am sure the recipients will be very surprised

  18. This is just too clever! Now maybe my daughter will actually be able to eat breakfast when she’s running late for school! Just love it! I’d love for you to come link up this and some of your other projects at my new party!

  19. You guys make everything look so pretty!. For years I would bring hot tea to work in a jar. I’m a faux painter living in Italy and the boyz on the job site think it is weird. I wrap around a cloth napkin to keep it warm. Recently I saw someone made a cashmere cozy for the mason jar -that’s so cool. Yogurt and fruit is good to go too.

  20. I always have a large group at the beach house we rent every year. I could make these up ahead of time and keep them in the oven to warm. My family and friends could grab them as they wake up. Now, I have to start thinking of lunch ideas if they want to take them down to the ocean.

  21. Yummy!!! I to love to have breakfast for dinner!! It’s a favorite treat – and dressing it up in a Mason Jar makes it that much more delightful!! Thanks for inspiring me today!

  22. Great photos!! You did not mention making holes in the lid and using the jar to catch fire flies at night. Then, if you are a 10-year old boy, you sneak the jar of fire flies into your grandparents house when all the relatives have gathered, and, after everyone has gone to bed, you release the fire flies. All thirty of them! (I have more life experiences to teach “my boy” as he gets older.) Love, Dad

  23. These are adorable and now you have me starving :) Hope you girls have a fabulous week!

  26. Brilliant! And yes, eating breakfast for dinner feels just a touch naughty… and that is the best part! Thanks so much for all of the mason jar meal ideas. I have yet to serve my family a meal in a jar. It’s about time I do that! Hugs.

  30. Great idea!!!! Can’t wait to try it!

  31. My pieces are carefully constructed using old-schooltailoring techniques.
    Holding a garage sale would are actually the perfect idea, but my schedule would not allow for it.
    I have seen inserts for your side seam to enlarge the waist.

  32. The image that was mailed disclosed the names of the four DLC
    map packs: Onslaught, Devastation, Invasion and Nemesis.
    By temporarily blocking connections to and from
    their Xbox 360, they will appear frozen to everybody else in the game but in reality are actually still moving around and playing locally.
    They tend to use tactical jargon that they don’t understand too, like,
