Mason jar meals are quickly gaining popularity because they are portable and easy to prepare ahead of time. These glass jars (however large or small) are great storage containers because they also are microwave safe.

You can make a large batch of one recipe, or have several different Mason jar meals waiting for you. If you really love using Mason jars, then you'll love these other Mason jar recipes, too!
