Meals In A Jar: Instant Egg Sausage Scramble

Having meals in a jar ready to use means you have stocked long-term meal storage planning. If you take the time to plan out easy-to-make meals, you will have comfort food prepared to make when needed.

The instant egg sausage scramble recipe pulls together quickly and packs into a pint-size mason jar. This recipe will require cooking, but you won’t need refrigeration. That is always a bonus. No worry if the power goes out.

Meals in a jar. Instant egg sausage scramble.

This is a great recipe to use freeze-dried and dehydrated ingredients in, and I have included links to posts showing how to dehydrate and freeze-dry some of the ingredients. (I’ve also included links for items that are harder to freeze-dry, but you can buy commercially.) Being able to freeze-dry your ingredients is a massive thing to me. We can have all the fun ingredients we want and can put together meals as we see fit.

This recipe can be packed into a pint glass mason jar for long-term storage, or you can also pack it into a “MRE” style mylar bag for storage. The mylar bag makes it very portable.

Instant Egg Sausage Scramble



In a wide-mouth pint-size mason jar, add the sausage, onion, mushroom, garlic, and salt. Tap gently to settle it.

Place the cheese in a snack-size zip-top bag and seal it, pushing out all air. Repeat the egg powder in a second bag.

Fit into the jar, pushing down to fit it all. Seal tightly.

Store in a cool, dry, and dark area in your pantry.


It may also be packed in a mylar bag.

To Prepare:

Remove the two bags and set aside.

Add ¾ cup of warm water to the dry ingredients in the jar. Stir well.

Add 1/3 cup cool water to the cheese bag. Seal and set aside.

Add ¾ cup cool water to the egg bag. Seal and shake till the egg powder dissolves. Set aside.

Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes to rehydrate.

Heat a frypan over medium-low heat, and add the oil or butter. Drain off any water remaining in the sausage mix, add to the pan, and saute until it smells good. Shake the egg bag again and slowly pour in.

Drain off any remaining water in the cheese bag, and sprinkle the cheese on top.

Use a spatula to scramble gently until the egg is cooked as you like.


You can soak the sausage mix in cool water; just let it sit for 20-30 minutes.
