These Instant Pot Sous Vide Egg Bites are super convenient bite-size protein packed healthy breakfast on-the-go!
Have you heard? Have you seen? Have you tried?? The new Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites!!
It’s the talk in town!
Only Starbucks to cause such stir over a new drink or food item. But hey, I am a sucker for all things Starbucks so chances are I was the first in line. Hmmm… and they do not disappoint!
Adding to their precious menu, Starbucks introduces their “sous vide” egg bites (pronounced “su-vid”, don’t make the same mistake that I did!) in an effort to satisfy their protein craving anti-carb customers.
While these soft egg puffs sure are absolutely delicious, they can also easily break ones bank. My devotion to Starbucks only goes as far as an occasional stop or desperate trip to get work done away from my distracting cat Leo. But these egg bites…

How To Make Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites At Home!
Turns out, making sous vide egg bites at home is a lot easier then you think. First you need to get yourself this silicone mold which fits perfectly into a 6qt instant pot. It works if you have a bigger size pot but it will not fit into a smaller instant pot.
As for the ingredients you will need eggs, cottage cheese and shredded cheese of choice. I played around with a few cheeses and recommend that you pick cheddar, gruyere or monterey jack cheese for better flavor. Also, I do not recommend you adding greek yogurt in this recipe as it turned out quite sour.
Although I am using broccoli and ham in this recipe, some of the other flavors I tried were; sun-dried tomato and spinach, bacon and finally ham and broccoli which is the combination I liked the most.
For this recipe we use the “steam” mode for 8 quick minutes then allow for 10 minutes of natural pressure to be released. When you first open the pot the sous vide eggs are all super puffy but they quickly deflate to fill the cavity of the silicone mold.
I also found that there is no need to spray the silicone mold with oil or such. The sous vide eggs came right off once they were cooled enough to manage.
Now you have your own Starbuck sous vide egg bites with bragging rights my friends! I love how they came out super soft, mega flavorful, they refrigerate so well (even better if you use a stacker bag!!) and you can freeze them too!
Aren’t these egg bites the most perfect breakfast on the go? They are super convenient bite size protein packed little nuggets. I am so thrilled you are giving this recipe a try!
