Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites are a soft and velvety smooth breakfast that are delicious and easy to eat on the go. They also cost more than I am willing to spend on breakfast for an entire week, let alone four bites of food.

It took me five attempts to get this recipe just right. I made all the silly mistakes so you can get these perfect each and every time.

Do I Need Any Special Equipment?

For this recipe, I used my Instant Pot and this silicone egg mold. If you are using an Instant Pot, you’ll need to have at least the 6-quart version.

No Instant Pot? Read below. No egg mold? You can use 4 oz mason jars; just read the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post for details. If you are new to pressure cooking and the Instant Pot, check out this post on recipes for Instant Pot beginners.

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.

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.

Variations: 

  • Add 1 tbsp of pesto (try homemade Whole30 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.

Learn how easy it is to make this copycat Starbucks egg bites recipe in the Instant Pot.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Nutpods original {or milk of choice}
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1/8 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 cup spinach
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped broccoli
  • 2 strips bacon {cooked and diced}

Instructions

  • Thoroughly grease the muffin mold with coconut oil, ghee, or cooking spray.
  • Chop and cook the bacon over medium heat until cooked through. Remove to a paper towel. 
  • Add eggs and milk to a blender or food processor. Blend for 1 minute.
  • Add the broccoli and spices and pulse the blender a few times to break it up without fully blending.
  • Add spinach, any other veggies, and bacon to the egg molds. Pour the egg/milk mixture up to the top of each mold.
  • Pour 1 cup of water into the Instant Pot. Carefully place the mold on top of the trivet and lower it into the Instant Pot.
  • Secure the lid, and make sure the nozzle is set to "sealing". Press steam>8 minutes.
  • Once the Instant Pot shuts off, allow it to vent naturally for 10 minutes and then do a quick release to let out any pressure that may remain.
  • Carefully remove the trivet and let the eggs cool for a few minutes in the mold before removing.

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. 
I highly recommend using cooking spray on the silicone mold. 
To make in the oven: Follow steps 1-5 in the recipe card, but cover the egg molds tightly in foil. Place the mold into a 9x13 pan and carefully pour water about three-fourths of the way up the side of the molds. Bake at 300 for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and check to see if the eggs are solid. If not, bake uncovered until there is no jiggle in the egg molds.
No egg molds: heavily spray 4 oz mason jars with cooking spray before filling with the egg mixture. Cook with foil tightly pressed over the top of each jar.

  1. I have two of these molds and the huge-sized instant pot. Do you think I could make a double batch by stacking the molds on top of each other? I’ve made similar bites in the oven using a muffin tin and it was a pain to clean out afterward. 

  2. I am so glad I came across this recipe! I make two batches on Sundays and eat them cold at my desk during the week. I love that they don’t have a ton of ingredients and I can customize them for what I have in the fridge.5 stars

  3. I have the same egg mold —but it was sold as baby food storage! The lid keeps it from spilling baby food in the freezer. 🙂

    I love those Starbucks egg bites but they are $$$$ so I will have to try this recipe!

  4. Can’t wait to try this. Every recipe had so much dairy and hubby can’t have that. So thank you so much for working on this!
    In case anyone only has a 3qt IP they have this mold -Silicone Egg Bites Mold for… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C59JMBL?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share. This is what I have since I use my 3qt the most. Thanks again!

  5. Love this recipe. So easy to customize for individual tastes and needs. 5 stars

  6. Nice, thank you. you must try this mold with built-in handles, much easier and safer! I got it from Amazon: 5 stars

  7. I have to admit the first few times I saw this recipe I thought yuck. Sioux vide eggs? Then after skipping breakfast most of the week I looked at it again and it hit me- these are like crustless baby quiche! I like quiche! Thanks again for the inspiration! Thank you thank you thank you!5 stars

  8. I’m making these today!  Perfect for grab n go breakfast!  Amy will never know the spinach is in there! ???? Question..how long in the oven?5 stars

    • It will be our secret Marcia!

      Bake at 300 for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and check to see if the eggs are solid. If not, bake uncovered until there is no jiggle in the egg molds.

  9. Since today was a snow day from work I needed a project. Well, a few projects, but one was egg bites. I made these egg bites before and loved them when they first came out of the instant pot but then could not get eggcited about them after that. Oh, then I saw a co-worker heating them up before she ate them! Don’t know how I missed that bit. I decided to try again but I thought they were a bit fussy for only 4 eggs and 7 bites so I tried it with two layers of bites. The second one sat on the shelf thing with holes in it. Since I don’t have a steam function on my pot either, (thanks April) I did 6 minutes on high with 10 minutes natural release – yum yum.5 stars

  10. Just got hold of the silicone mould for this. What else can I cook in the mould? Ideas?
