High Protein Ninja Foodi On The Go Omelette Mason Jars

Many years ago when my second youngest was having trouble with a bit of hyperactivity during school.  One of the most important adjustments that I made was giving him a high protein breakfast before school.  Eliminating bread and sugars made such a big difference in his ability to be calmer and pay better attention in school.  Where was my instant pot than???!!! This would have made my mornings so much easier and kept us from having a morning where we had cereal on the run out the door because we ran out of time.

You can load your omelets with whatever your favorites are. I like to change mine up so this way there is a nice variety during the week and no one gets bored.

Easy Omelet Mason Jars in Instant Pot 

My first batch I used the lids (lids only, not the rings) to lay on top of my jars during cooking so that water does not splash inside. Occasionally the lid will create such a tight seal during cooking that it took the eggs much longer to cook. I would recommend laying a piece of aluminum foil over the top, I found that worked the best.

Can You Freeze Omelettes 

Yes! You can freeze mini omelettes and then reheat them later. If you freeze in the mason jars, just remove the lid and all metal before you pop in the microwave to reheat. You can even thaw in the fridge the night before and then reheat in the oven or microwave in minutes.

Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi On The Go Omelette Mason Jars

  • 1 Green Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Ham Steak, chopped
  • 1/2 pound bacon, (cooked and chopped)
  • 5 Mason Jars or other jars


  1. Spray your Mason Jars (at least 8 oz, I used pint wide mouth jars) with canola spray.
  2. In a separate dish, scramble 2 eggs with 1 TBSP of milk or heavy cream. Pour into mason jars.
  3. Add in cheese, green peppers, & ham. (approx. 1 TBSP of each)
  4. Repeat process until all 5 jars are filled.
  5. Place jars in your pot on a trivet. Pour in 1 cup of water into your pot. (I was only able to fit 3 the first time. I did another batch with 2 jars.) Place a piece of aluminum foil over the top of each jar.
  6. Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and set the timer for 8 minutes.
  7. Do a quick release.
  8. Carefully remove the mason jars from the Instant Pot.
  9. Sprinkle with more shredded cheese & bacon. Let cool completely.
  10. Cover with lids and refrigerate.


This recipe will make 5 jars. Depending on the size of your pot, you may not fit all 5 in at once and have to cook in two batches.

  1. i actually used pint wide mouthed. you can really use any jar you have. The wide mouth makes it a tiny bit easier for the kids.

    1. i am so sorry, I updated the recipe. I found using aluminum foil worked better. If you use the lids, they may make such a tight seal that the eggs do not cook as well.

  2. Maybe i dont understand but if you are scrambling 2 eggs and the adding the rest of the precooked ingredients (bacon etc) how much do u really need to cook it in the IP?

    1. The only item precooked is the bacon. Nothing else is and you need the amount of time posted in the recipe. Sometimes it even needs another minute or two.

  3. Your recipe instructions in step 2 are a little confusing. You need to state that for each jar you scramble 2 eggs with 1 Tbsp. milk.

    Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely be making these.
