Egg Bite Recipe

My kids and I have been obsessed with the red pepper egg bites at Starbucks since they came out a few years ago. I always wondered if I could make a more protein packed version at home with egg whites to save a little money.

I thought I needed to get a fancy sous vide machine but after a few tries, I found the perfect way to make Instant Pot egg bites!

This egg bite recipe is incredibly easy and can be customized with your favorite mix ins.

Try bacon bits, parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, green onions or even gruyere cheese.

Let’s not forget to talk about the star ingredient – cottage cheese. Not only does it provide a creamy texture to these egg bites, but it’s also a great source of protein and calcium.

How to store leftover egg bites

Leftover egg bites are stored best in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge. To reheat, simply put them in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds.

You can freeze egg bites for up to 6 months. When you reheat from frozen, I recommend warming them up in a toaster oven for 3-5 minutes or until warmed through.  

If you have an oven, you could reheat in a muffin tin at 350°F for 8-10 minutes until warmed through. You can also freeze these egg bites and defrost in the fridge overnight before reheating them.
