How to Make Bacon Gruyère Egg Bites from Starbucks

  1. Start by cooking the bacon until it’s crisp. Once done, dice it into small pieces and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, add the eggs, heavy whipping cream, whipped cream cheese, salt and black pepper. Blend with an immersion blender until smooth. Fold in the finely shredded Gruyère cheese.
  3. Fill a deep sauté pan about halfway with water and bring it to a boil.
  4. Spray an egg mold with non-stick spray. Fill each well about 3/4 of the way with the egg mixture. Add a few pieces of crisp bacon to each well, then top with more of the egg mixture.
  5. Carefully place the mold in the boiling water. Cook for exactly 2 minutes, then cover with a domed lid to avoid moisture leaking onto the eggs. Cook for an additional 12 minutes.
  6. Carefully lift the mold out of the water using tongs and place it on paper towels to soak up any excess water. Flip the mold over to release the egg bites.

Notes

  • Cook the bacon until super crispy, for the best texture.
  • Use an immersion blender to incorporate air into the egg cream mixture for pillowy and bouncy egg bites.
  • Generously spray the egg mold to prevent sticking.
  • Make sure the water level is about halfway up the egg mold to ensure water does not seep into the egg wells while cooking.
  • Use a domed lid to prevent moisture from dripping onto egg bites.
  • Ensure even filling in each mold for consistent cooking.
  • Take extreme caution when lifting the egg mold out of the boiling water, as the steam can create burns. 
  • Place cooked egg bites on paper towels to absorb excess water.
  • Customize fillings for variety and personal preference.
  • Finished egg bites can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen up to 2 months.

Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
