Recently, while we were road-tripping, I was introduced to Starbuck’s Sous Vide Egg Bites. They are so soft and pillowy. However, at five dollars for just two of them, I’m was fairly certain I could make them at home for less than half the cost. That’s just what I did. In my opinion, mine are even better than the original. They are perfect for meal prep and can easily be frozen.
These Sous Vide Egg Bites are super easy to make. It only takes about thirty minutes. Also, let your imagination run wild with your favorite ingredients. Personally, I love the combination of crispy bacon pieces and Gruyère cheese. First things first, you need to buy an egg bite mold. I found the one I used on Amazon for about twelve dollars.

This recipe will yield approximately thirteen Sous Vide Egg Bites. Another plus, they are Keto friendly! Of course, I created a short video on how I made these beauties on TikTok. Click here to view. Not yet a member? Use my code 5SSIS800K0H06 to create an account.
Although this egg mold is advertised for use in an Instant Pot, do not worry if you do not have one. I do not, and vow never to purchase one. All you need is a pan with a dome lid! Also, see UPDATE below on how I made these Sous Vide Egg Bites in mason jars using a precision cooker. I recently purchased an Anova 750W and I am loving it. Click here to purchase.
HOW TO MAKE SOUS VIDE EGG BITES FROM STARBUCKS
Dice the bacon. Crisp up, and set aside. Place the eggs, heavy whipping cream, Gruyère cheese, cream cheese, kosher salt and black pepper in a bowl. Use an immersion blender to mix well. If you do not have an immersion blender, use a food processor. You want the mixture nice and foamy. A whisk will probably not work that well.
Fill a deep pan about three-quarters of the way full with water. Bring to a boil. Do NOT use a non-stick pan. Grab your silicone egg mold and spray generously with non-stick spray (This ensures that they pop out nicely every time). Be sure to spray again for the next batch!
Drop a few pieces of the crisp diced bacon into each well. Carefully, pour in the egg mixture. Be sure to leave just a tiny bit of room to allow the egg to puff up and not overflow the mold (see pic below).
When the water starts to boil, place the egg mold inside. Allow to to cook for two minutes without the lid. Place lid and cook for another twelve minutes. After testing this recipe a number of times, fourteen minutes is the perfect cook time. Also, be sure to use a dome lid so that the condensation does not drip onto the eggs.
TO FINISH AND SERVE THE SOUS VIDE EGG BITES
Carefully lift the mold out of the boiling water. Set on paper towel for a few seconds to catch any water from the bottom of the mold. Flip the mold over and these beauties will pop right out! Make several batches of these amazing Sous Vide Egg Bites to enjoy now, for meal prep or to freeze. They will last up to three days in the fridge. Be sure to share with me your favorite flavor combinations as I am excited to see what you come up with! ENJOY!
HOW TO MAKE SOUS VIDE EGG BITES IN A PRECISION COOKER
UPDATE: Here is how to make these Sous Vide Egg Bites using a precision cooker. Prepare the egg custard using the recipe above (I doubled the recipe which yielded seven generous servings). Set your device to 170 degrees for 75 minutes (50 minutes if you are using a smaller, four-ounce jar). I used these cute eight-ounce Mason jars. Click here! Fill the jars about halfway. Add in a few pieces of the crispy bacon. Add a bit more of the custard and a few more bacon pieces. Place lid. Tighten.
Once the water comes to temperature, gently lower the jars into the bath. I use a deep container, so I just lowered the jars in with a spider. The jars I used were fairly thick, so I felt it was not necessary to temper (run under warm water) them. However, If you are using a thinner glass jar, you should.
These Sous Vide Egg Bites also came out perfectly. They were so light and fluffy. Allow the jars to cool for at least a half hour prior to storing in the fridge. Now, you have breakfast in a jar for the entire week. As mentioned above, get as creative as you want with the ingredients. To reheat, remove lid and place in the microwave for about a minute. Alternatively, place back into a bath of warm water (150 degrees) for about ten minutes.

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! 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. He is known as one of the best skate sharpeners in the world!
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!
