The only thing that makes eggs better than they already are is when you add things to them and one of my favorite pairings with eggs is bacon and cheese.

OH yeah! You cannot go wrong when you add bacon and cheese to your eggs. Bacon is life! I mean, is there any dish that doesn’t go with bacon?

Lately, I’ve been really loving the new Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites. They are DELICIOUS and pretty good for you. Depending on how you make them, they’re low carb and Keto, too!

After I work out I will run through the cafe and grab a latte and an order of Bacon Gruyere Egg Bites. Heaven! But the only bad thing is that they are pretty darn expensive. I am going to need to back off OR make my own. So, I’m making my own!

I know to make true Sous Vide Egg Bites you need a special machine, or you can make them in the oven. But, I thought I’d pull out my pressure cooker and give it another use – BREAKFAST! And, boy am I glad I did!

These Instant Pot Sous Bacon and Gruyere Egg Bites are to die for! AND they take no time at all to make!

How to Make Instant Pot Sous Vide Bacon & Gruyere Egg Bites:

1. Blend

Blend together the eggs, cottage cheese, and cheese in a blender until all incorporated. I believe it’s under 30 seconds to have it all mixed well.

2. Add

Add cooked bacon strips to the inside of a silicone mold and a little cheese.

3. Pour

Pour the egg mixture into the silicone mold evenly.

4. Cover

Cover the egg mold tightly with aluminum foil.

5. Add

Add the trivet that came with your pressure cooker right into the pot with 1 cup of water.

6. Lower

Lower the silicone mold into the instant pot and cover with the lid with the steam valve closed.

7. Cook

Set the pressure cooker to Steam for 10 minutes. When the timer goes off, manually release the steam and carefully open the lid when there is no more steam present.

8. Remove

Remove the silicone mold from the instant pot (carefully – it will be hot!) and uncover. Remove the Egg Bites from the molds and enjoy!

Variations

If you have a sous vide machine, that works great, too!

You can also change up the flavors of the cheese by adding Monterey jack cheese or cheddar cheese as well.

If you’re not worried about having these egg bites taste exactly that Starbucks, add in some chopped bell peppers, chopped tomatoes, or even some spinach are broccoli as well!

FAQS

How do you keep this sous vide egg bites recipe fresh?

If you have a vacuum sealer, I recommend that! This will keep them fresh and you can even meal prep and add them to the freezer for later, too! They’re so easy to freeze!

Are these good for a paleo diet?

They are! They’re low in carbs, calories, salt, and just about everything. You can enjoy these for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or just when you’re needing a quick burst of protein. You can heat them up a tiny bit in the microwave or enjoy them cold.

How do you keep them from sticking to the silicone egg bite mold?

If you’re worried about them sticking, just use a little bit of cooking spray and that should prevent them from sticking at all.

Comments

  1. Seems the ratio of eggs to bacon is somewhat wide. 1 pack of bacon to only 4 eggs? Other recipes call for more eggs to bacon

  2. 5 stars
    I just made these! SOOOO GOOD! Just like the Starbucks and less $$$ YAY! I’m gonna pack them in my lunch for skiing this winter!

  3. One of my favorite egg recipes! Gruyere cheese provides such a creamy, deliciousness to them. But I also like to switch it up with a flavorful Gouda or such. My favorite has been maple bacon gouda!
    100% recommend this recipe

  4. Put on steam setting for 10 minutes and they came out uncooked (not at all cooked in center). Other recipes I’ve found say high pressure for 8 minutes + 5 minutes for cooling before release. Trying that next.

  5. Mine keep coming out not fully cooked. Any thoughts?

    1. 2 stars
      same. didn’t come out fully cooked! other places say high pressure vs steam. i think that’s the issue.

  6. Can you use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese?

  7. How many calories are in the egg bites ?

  8. How much cheese do I put in the blender? It isn’t listed!

  9. Amanda M. says:

    I don’t have an instant pot so I was going to try these in the oven but if I make a bunch do you have any idea how long they stay good in the fridge? I wanted to try to meal prep breakfast for the week! Thank you!

  10. You don’t have an amount on the cheese. Just wondering if you use the a 6 oz bag ? I too have an addiction to those egg bites along with my ice coffee! my husband said I should invest into that coffee place because I spend a whole Lotta money there! Lol

  11. Courtney Lopez says:

    SO GOOD! These taste just like them, if not better. Plus so much cheaper to make sous vide egg bites at home. Love my instant pot.

    1. So much cheaper AND you know what’s going in to them!
