Today I am putting a new twist on eggs! Now that I have been doing the Keto diet for over a week, I am finding more creative ways to make eggs and bake eggs using mason jar lids just made sense. I am a creative person at heart, and cooking is considered an art. Although I have not mastered the art, I do continue to use my creativity in the kitchen and am learning and enjoying each time.

The Experiment bake eggs using mason jar lids

Because this was an experiment, I didn’t get too fancy making the egg combination. So many ways to add to eggs using protein such as bacon, ham or sausage. Also adding in veggies is wonderful too. I simply beat 4 eggs, added a little bit of lite coconut milk and some pepper.

Eggs in Place of Bread

You can even just crack your egg in the mason jar and then have a perfect fried egg sandwich. Instead of using bread, I stacked my two perfect little egg omelets like a sandwich.

Add Fixings

You can add a slice of tomato, avocado, or as mentioned a protein of choice. I used a little tin foil on the bottom wrapped around each mason jar lid. The tin foil wrapped around the lid did work fine and I didn’t have any leakage in the pot. There was some under the foil though. Not much to speak of.

How to bake eggs in a Mason jar lid in the Ninja Foodi


  • 4 mason jar lids (standard size) You can find lids in the grocery store, they sell them usually in a pack of 8
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp lite coconut milk
  • Non-stick butter spray


  • First prepare you mason jar lid being sure the bottom is secure and be sure to wrap some foil around the bottom. I would do both to be sure they don’t leak. Lightly spray the inner lid with non-stick butter spray. Prepare your egg mixture. Use anything you like in your eggs. Even a simply sunny side egg can be done. Place 4 lids in the Ninja Foodi and pour in egg mixture.
  • Set the Ninja Foodi at 325 air crisp for 6-7 minutes. Check half way to see how your eggs are doing.
  • Remove carefully each lid from the Foodi using mitts, the lids are hot. Set to cool for about one minute. Your eggs should slide right out. Make stack-able sandwich adding in between whatever you like. Enjoy and have fun!
