Starbucks Egg Bites

Mr. Rebates

This week, we head to the farm and will explore some of the different animals and crops around us! Today, we’ll start with eggs! A less expensive, just as tasty, at home version of the Starbucks egg bites, these egg bites can be customized with any number of flavors. Plus, they reheat great so they are another great make ahead breakfast option!

Simple Meal Planning - Plan to Eat

Ingredients

  • Red Pepper Version
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 roasted red pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup spinach, chopped
  • Bacon Cheddar Version
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup bacon, cooked

Directions

  • Add eggs, cheese, and cottage cheese to a blender and process until smooth (about 30 seconds). Add red pepper and spinach or bacon and give it a quick pulse to combine.

Instant Pot Cooking Directions

  • Divide the egg mixture evenly between the compartments of the silicone mold, tightly cover with aluminum foil.
  • Add 1 cup water to Instant Pot and place the trivet (that came with your Instant Pot) inside.
  • Lower the silicone mold into the Instant Pot.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set the vent to sealing. Press the STEAM button and set the timer to 10 minutes. It will take about 5 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to full pressure, then the display will show a countdown timer.
  • Once the cooking time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, and then release any remaining pressure before opening the Instant Pot.
  • Remove the silicone mold from the Instant Pot and allow the egg bites to cool for a few minutes before enjoying.

Oven Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees and place a baking dish that is filled with 1 inch of water on the bottom rack. This will create a humid environment and help the eggs cook evenly.
  • Spray a muffin tin with a little non-stick spray and fill the tins almost all the way to the top with the egg mixture.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the center of the egg bites are just set. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
