Hello World! I feel like I’ve been flooding my most recent blog post with a ton of Instant Pot recipes. Let me apologize and start by saying that I won’t be posting only Instant Pot recipes. But Gosh darn it, that Instant Pot is amazing.

I’m used to making soups, stews, and one pot meals in it but I was intrigued when I discovered that I could make eggs in the Instant Pot. No, not boiled eggs (which I hear is a great way to make a ton of boiled eggs) but creamy delicious egg bites.

Are these similiar to sous vide egg bites?

Yep, but I don’t use a Sous Vide machine. The first I heard of these is when Starbucks added it to their menu and called it “Sous Vide Egg Bites.” They apparently use the sous vide machine but the Instant Pot gets the same velvety, creamy texture.

Let’s be real, everyone and their mama got the Instant Pot for Christmas. How awesome is it that we can make this wonderful breakfast at home and save some coins when we head to our favorite coffee shop. These are the kind of a breakfast snack that can be made ahead of time. The whole family will love this grab and go breakfast.

This egg bites recipe comes together quickly and requires only a 9 minute steam time and 10 minute natural release time in the Instant Pot. There are a couple of suggested tools when making these babies…a blender, a a silicone baby food mold , and a Steamer Rack Trivet(this should have come with your instant pot).

As you can see, the texture of these eggs are creamy. This recipe isn’t for you if you like your eggs hard or fried. But if you like creamy eggs and don’t have the patience to make Gordon Ramsey’s creamy scrambled eggs in a skillet (my favorite way to make them), then this Sous Vide Egg Bites Recipe is for you.

The best thing about these egg bites, other than the fact that they are creamy and delicious is the fact that you can hide veggies in them. I keep it simple with just adding spinach to mine. I also add bacon. Can I call bacon a veggie?

I hope you all enjoy these “Sous Vide” egg bites as much as we do. Until the next recipe.

Notes on Sous Vide Egg Bites Recipe in the Instant Pot

  • You can create a foil sling for easy removal of the baby silicone mold in the Instant Pot. To create the sling, take a 20 inch long piece of foil paper and fold it into thirds. Place this in the Instant Pot, on the trivet and place the baby silicone mold on top of that. When ready to remove from the Instant Pot, grab the foil sling. Or in the alternative, you can use tongs to grab the side of the silicone mode for removal.
  • Have fun with the add ins and use whatever cheese you may like.
  • Allow the egg bites to sit after removing from Instant Pot to have them firm up a bit.
  • With the egg mold linked here, I don’t spray the silicone mold and my eggs slide right on out. I highly reccomend this silicone mold.  However, I have used other molds with this recipe and they have stuck. So I suggest always spraying the mold.
  • These can be reheated easily in the microwave. If refrigerated, try 30-45 seconds in the microwave. if frozen, try 60 -90 seconds. Re-heat time will depend on the wattage of your microwave.

These are eggscellent! Sorry couldn’t resist. Lol. My toddler and I loved them! I used the silicone lid the egg mold came with instead of foil and it worked great. Also I put the mold in first on top of trivet and then poured while it was in the pot, the first time I had trouble lowering the already full mold in without spilling it.

Could you use riccotta cheese instead of cottage cheese?

Yes, ricotta would work fine.

I think these are the best. I tried the recipes that came with my egg mold, and they weren’t nearly as tender. Incidentally, I couldn’t wait for my egg mold to arrive, so I made them first in my silicone cupcake molds inside a stainless steel mixing bowl with a flat bottom. They were a little misshapen due to fitting them in there, but still de-lish!
