So I love Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites (who doesn’t?), but my wallet and Keto-lifestyle do not (their carbs range from 9-13g). So I bit the bullet and figured out my own Keto version, you can either cook them true Sous Vide OR using the Instant Pot (as I do) with the silicone mold (available here). My recipe is 3g carb per serving AND total recipe cost is less than two orders of egg bites from the $’Bucks.
LoLo’s Instant Pot Egg Bites
(makes up to 14 depending on what you add in)
6 Large Organic Eggs
4 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese (the block kind)
4 oz Extra Sharp Cheddar - shredded (I love Tillamook)
1/4 cup Organic Heavy Whipping Cream
Optional: Bacon, Chorizo Sausage, Cheese, Peppers, Spinach - you do you
Throw the Eggs, Cream Cheese, Cheddar and Whipping Cream into a VitaMix Blender or Similarly-Powered Blender.
Pour Egg Bite Mix into molds, approximately 1/2 full-do not overfill (they will expand-you’ve been warned!).
Add any toppings or additions into the egg molds*, no more than 2/3 full (they will expand-you’ve been warned 2x haha!!).
Place mold into your Instant Pot. I use the lids that came with my molds and stack them, but they aren’t super necessary.
Set your Instant Pot to Steam and Sealing for 9 minutes.
Once the 9 minutes is up, you can quick release or let it go naturally.
I keep them in an airtight container in my fridge. My boys will pop them out and into the microwave for 15-30 seconds, easy peasy.
*Some mix-in combination ideas
Sausage, Bacon, Gruyere
Chorizo, Cheddar, Red Pepper
Goat Cheese, Chive, Spinach
