How Do You Reheat Sous Vide Egg Bites?
They keep well in the fridge for up to a week or the freezer for two months. To reheat refrigerated bites in the microwave for 30 seconds. Frozen bites will take 60-90 seconds.
- Add 1 tbsp of pesto (try homemade vegan pesto) to the mixture and chopped ham for “green eggs and ham” bites.
- Serve with Cilantro Chimichurri for awesome pizazz.
- Make an all-veggie version with chopped pieces of your favorite veg.
- Add 1/2 cup of your favorite shredded cheese to the blender before processing for a cheesy version. Note: this is not Whole30 compliant.
- Pizza bites! A few diced red peppers or sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, and chopped pepperoni. Note: this is not Whole30 compliant.
Pro Tips/Recipe Notes
- Allow to fully cool before storing in an air-tight container in the fridge. Warm egg bites will “sweat” as they cool and create condensation, causing them to get gooey. Even when fully cooled, I still like to place the bites on a paper towel or clean cloth inside the container.
- When I make a big batch I will leave three or four bites in a container in the fridge and freeze the rest.
- I used Nut Pods because it helps give that silky egg texture that works so well in quiches, and keeps this dairy-free. If you have a favorite non-dairy milk you want to use, then go for it. Don’t need this to be non-dairy and want to use regular milk? Go for it!
- I highly recommend using cooking spray on the silicone mold. The versions I made without this step were really hard to remove from the mold.
- The egg mold comes with a lid. Don’t cook with this on. Honestly, I don’t use them at all.
- I used frozen organic broccoli for this recipe. Microwave for 60 seconds before adding to the blender. If you have leftover frozen broccoli, you’ll love making some Roasted Frozen Broccoli later in the week for a fast and delicious side dish.
- Frozen spinach will work great too! Learn how to freeze spinach in this post.
