Copycat Starbucks Bacon Egg Bites Recipe

Are you a fan of Starbucks' mouthwatering bacon egg bites but tired of spending a fortune on them? Look no further because we have the perfect solution for you! In this blog post, we'll show you how to make your own homemade copycat version of Starbucks bacon gruyere egg bites that is just as delicious and satisfying. 

Starbucks is a popular coffee chain that has gained worldwide recognition for its delicious coffee, pastries, and other breakfast items. These bites are made with fluffy eggs, crispy bacon, and melty cheese all baked together in a convenient bite-sized form. After visiting Starbucks one and wanting to try their gruyère egg bites with spinach and feta, I was surprised when she said they sell out every single day before 7 a.m. somedays. They did however have bacon gruyere egg bites, so I tried them! OMG! was all I had to say.  I thought I would never be able to prepare them at home because I don’t have a sous vide machine. A few days later, I discovered that people were making these egg bites in Instant Pots and on stovetops. So, I started to play around with simple ingredients and found this great recipe that is a perfect breakfast copycat recipe.  It has an amazing texture and stays fluffy even after being stored in an airtight container and heated in the microwave. You can easily put this recipe on your list of items you can meal prep for busy mornings, so it's the perfect protein packed breakfast to grab on the go.

The sous vide cooking method used by Starbucks involves slow-cooking eggs in a water bath at a precise temperature for an extended period of time. This creates perfectly cooked eggs with a silky texture that melt in your mouth. However, this method can be quite challenging to replicate at home without specialized equipment.   Luckily, we have created an easy-to-follow homemade copycat recipe for Starbucks Bacon Egg Bites using your instapot so you can enjoy this tasty breakfast treat right in the comfort of your own home not needing any special equipment. This copycat Starbucks egg bites recipe can be made in your instapot using your silicone molds or an instapot muffin pan.

Other Mix In Options

One way to change up the flavor of these egg bites is to change up the mix ins! You can basically use any veggies, cheese and breakfast meats that you like. It is sometimes better to cook the veggies before using them like raw onions or a red pepper so that they are softer.

This Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites are just like the Starbucks sous vide egg bites but you can make them at home for less money and with better ingredients. These delicious egg bites can be customized to your taste buds by adding ingredients that you love. 

Instead of cottage cheese use 4 oz cream cheese (softened)

You can also switch the cottage cheese for plain greek yogurt

You can use thick cut bacon or pepper bacon instead of regular bacon. The pepper bacon will give it a spicy kick.

You can add some cheddar cheese or pepper jack cheese instead of the two listed cheeses

You can also make these on the bottom rack of the oven oven using a muffin tin, make sure you spray the tin.
