If you have a Pinterest account, we bet you've seen countless Mason jar crafts. But in the South, we don't like to limit the way we use these glass vessels, which leads us to the topic of breakfast. These recipes include sweet options like cinnamon rolls and blueberry French toast and savory options like quiches and frittatas. You won't believe that some of these Mason jar breakfasts actually cook right in the jar, like pigs-in-a-blanket pancakes and sausage, spinach, and pepper omelets. We also found the most out-of-this-world oatmeal with overnight, no-cook recipes like mango-almond and blueberry-maple flavors. These breakfast recipes are the easiest way to take breakfast on the go without any mess, and they'll save you so much time on busy weekdays. Plus, these breakfasts would make for an adorable table set up at a luncheon, early shower, or holiday brunch. When you see these delicious (and let's be honest, really cute) ideas, you'll be inspired to toss the granola bars and make these Mason jar breakfasts.
