Looking for that delicious Starbucks Egg Bite, but don't want to put a dent in your wallet? Look no further. This recipe is a super simple and inexpensive alternative that will have you cooking egg bites like a pro before you know it.
Check out Rae from JdotRae making the Sous Vide Egg Bites!
This recipe uses the Zing Sous Vide Water Oven and Multicooker.
It is one of my favorite kitchen tools because it has 7 different cooking modes (Sous Vide, Saute, Slow Cook, White Rice, Brown Rice, Boil/Steam and even Yogurt!) so I can basically do most of my cooking with this guy. It also has a 6 Qt. capacity which is plenty for most family and friend gatherings. The fact that I can Sous Vide and Sear with the same machine has been a game changer.
If you want one you can get yours here for 10% off!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
Time to make: 1 hour.
Makes 6 servings.
5-6 eggs (Each egg will make one egg bite)
1 cup of grated cheese of your choice (We prefer the classic cheddar)
2 slices of bacon evenly cut into 3 pieces
A pinch of salt (1/2 teaspoon)
Canola Oil or Butter
Equipment: You will need six ~8oz canning jars (Mason jars will do just fine)
Sous Vide - 172°F - 1 hour: (Make sure the Water Oven is filled between the Min and Max line for Sous Vide)
Crack all of your eggs into a bowl.
Add a pinch of salt (1/2 teaspoon)
Mix eggs together (Don't whip them to make sure they retain their density after being cooked).
Put your choice of cheese into the mixture and stir lightly.
Take your jars and generously coat them in canola oil or butter. This ensures the egg bites are able to easily come out after being cooked.
Pour the egg mixture in the jars. Make sure you are lightly stirring as you pour the mixture to ensure the cheese is evenly spread across all of the jars.
To make your egg bites more like the ones you get at Starbucks we recommend taking the slices of bacon and putting one piece on top of each mixture (You can also dice your bacon and include it into the mixture itself).
Cap all of the jars.
Place the Jars into the water bath (You can stack them if you need to).
After cooking, you can eat them right away (We like them hot and fresh), or you can put them into the fridge to cool (They are a great protein snack and meal prep option).
Two last tips:
Use a spoon or a knife to help get the egg bite out of the jar.
We highly recommend throwing your egg bites into the oven or air fryer for a few minutes (3-5) to get that nice crispy and toasted finish.
There you have it! Egg Bites don't have to be a pain! This is a great meal prep idea for your busy morning. Just pop them in the air fryer and enjoy on the go!
