How To Make Instant Pot Egg Bites
To start making this super easy recipe, you will need to gather all of the ingredients. This will include cooking the bacon and chopping the spinach leaves.
Make sure you spray the inside of the egg bites mold with non-stick spray and then place some bacon bits and chopped spinach in each of the egg molds.
Egg Bite Mold Recipe Variations
In this recipe card we have included bacon and spinach as our filling ingredients, but there are so many different variations you can make! A few suggestions would be:
- Ham & cheese – an egg classic! Just toss some diced ham in the molds before adding the egg mixture.
- Sausage & bell peppers – simply brown a little breakfast sausage and dice up your favorite bell pepper (any color would be great)!
- Gruyere cheese & bacon – you already have the bacon and nothing can beat the taste and creaminess of Gruyere cheese.
- Smoked salmon & fresh dill – this would make a great combination with that light & refreshing fresh herb – dill!
- Mushroom & swiss – great way to keep it a vegetarian breakfast but still so much flavor!
- Fresh tomatoes & kale – another vegetarian combination that is fresh and delicious.
- Nothing – you don’t have to add anything, if you don’t want to. Keep them simple and just blend up the eggs with some salt and pepper!
Pro tip: feel free to make any of these variations with egg whites! Just use the egg whites from 8 eggs instead of the egg whites and egg yolks from 4 eggs.
Now put the eggs, shredded cheese, cottage cheese, salt, & pepper in a high powered blender or food processor and blend on the high setting for 30-60 seconds.
Then pour the egg mixture into the egg molds until they are about 3/4 of the way full.
Set the metal trivet in the bottom of the Instant Pot and pour in the cold water.
Carefully set the egg mold on top of the trivet and secure the lid on top of the mold. Secure the lid on top of the Instant Pot select the low setting and steam function for 10 minutes of cooking time.
Now carefully hit the manual pressure release and remove the egg bit mold from the pot. Let it rest for about 4-5 minutes before popping them out to enjoy!
Best Ways To Serve Instant Pot Egg Bites
These delicious egg bites would be great all by themselves, but feel free to add them to a bigger breakfast or brunch menu with some pancake bites, banana bread, coffee smoothie, raspberry muffins, or a dairy-free cheese hashbrown bake! Just make sure you also make your favorite matcha latte!
- storage: these are a great option for meal prep and can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. You could freeze them for up to 3 months, but when they thaw and reheat the texture just doesn’t stay the same.
- reheat: simply place the egg bites on a microwave-safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel and warm at 50% for about 30 seconds and then at 10 second increments until they are warmed through.
- double batch: if you have more than one egg bite mold, you can definitely make a double batch! You can just stack the molds right on top of each other in a 6 quart or 8 quart Instant Pot.
