Instant Pot Egg Bites Recipe with Bacon and Cheddar (Starbucks Copycat)

Get ahead of breakfast time with this make ahead, Instant Pot Egg Bites recipe. Make these in your electric pressure cooker and you’ll save time AND money!

Let me start by saying I LOVE Starbucks sous vide egg bites. The coffee shop variety are technically cooked by a technique called sous vide.

Fancy, right?

Well, in plain speak, this means they’re gently cooked in a vacuum sealed plastic bag until they’re cooked.

But here’s the good news…If you have an Instant Pot and a silicone mold, you can achieve the same type of creamy, fluffy egg bites!

Here’s how I make my egg bites in the Instant Pot.

Crack six eggs into your blender.

The blender does incorporate a bit of air which helps to keep the eggs fluffy, plus it makes sure everything is super well blended together and you’ll have a nice, yellow consistency throughout.

Add a handful of shredded cheese – about half a cup to the eggs and blend until mixed.

Stir in cooked, chopped bacon.

Hint: If you’ve made a batch of bacon in your oven and frozen it for later you’re a rockstar! Just grab the slices and chopped ’em!

Add salt & pepper.

Grease your silicone molds with some nonstick cooking spray.

Then, pour about a cup of water into your Instant Pot.

Pour the egg mixture into a silicone egg mold and add the top.

Set the manual pressure for 8 minutes, then let it NPR (naturally release the pressure for a few minutes).

Release the remaining pressure by turning the valve to vent.

The eggs will puff up slightly after cooking but no worries, they’ll settle down after they start to cool slightly.

Remove them from the pan while still warm or they tend to stick.

What are the ingredients in Starbucks recipe?

It depends which type you purchase.

Starbucks Bacon & Gruyere egg bites contain cottage cheese, eggs, Monterey Jack Cheese, unsalted butter, gruyere cheese, uncured bacon, rice starch, hot sauce and salt in the recipe.

My Instant Pot egg bites don’t contain cottage cheese but you could incorporate it if you’d like.

Just a few simple ingredients for a healthy and delicious breakfast!

How do you reheat Instant Pot egg bites?

It’s super easy to reheat these egg bites. Simply store in the refrigerator up to 7 days.

Reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds or until warm. The actual time varies based on your microwave.

Are egg bites healthy?

Yes, this egg bites recipe is healthy! They’re also gluten free and a low-carb breakfast option.

You can add veggies and make them in a variety of ways.
