Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites. Even the name exudes richness, creaminess and sinfulness. At $5-$6 per pop they should be. Instead of venturing out every morning for our latest obsession we decided to make these at home utilizing the same ingredients listed on the Starbucks website. Starbucks Egg Bites are usually baked using a Sous Vide machine but most American homes don’t have one. For good reason. So we dusted off our Instant Pot and went to work.

These Instant Pot Egg Bites are velvety, springy and light. Without the Starbucks price tag. Keep in mind, nothing but utilizing an actual Sous Vide machine will duplicate the exact texture of the Starbucks version, but this gets you pretty close.

UPDATE- A healthy Starbucks Egg Bites Roasted Red Pepper Version is now posted!! 

Sous Vide Egg Bites

This sous vide egg recipe is simple to make with only a few staple ingredients. Starbucks egg bites ingredients include: egg, bacon, cheese, cottage cheese, unsalted butter and a few ingredients we happily leave out like carrageenan.

Looking for side dish to make it a brunch? Our Instant Pot Little Smokies would pair nicely with these Sous Vide Egg Bites. Or bring out your fancy side and make sous vide prime rib if you’re feeling it!

  • Starbucks version utilizes Gruyere and Monterey Jack cheese, however we’ve tested it with smoked gouda, pepper jack and cheddar with success. Swiss cheese works, however the flavor is lacking. Mix and match depending on what you have in your fridge.
  • This recipe also works well with cream cheese vs cottage cheese. It’s not quite a light, but the flavor profile is consistent.
  • Make sure to utilize your blender for a consistently smooth texture.
  • Don’t have heavy cream or prefer to cut down on the calories? Feel free to leave it out. We find the flavor is on par, however it helps smooth out the texture to get that Sous Vide smoothness.

We utilized the popular Instant Pot Duo Plus and these Ball 4 oz Mason Jars for this recipe. Interested in keeping the circular shape of the Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites? Use this baby food freezer storage tray in place of the mason jars.

Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites are perfect for those on Weight Watchers, 21 Day Fix or even the Keto diet. Just a few adjustments would be needed.

I make these in 2 silicone mold trays with silicone tops. I cook sausage or pancetta, sauté chopped mushrooms, use full fat cottage cheese and heavy cream, add Cholula. I eat 2 of these with a big handful of arugula, half an avocado and some kind of dip or salad dressing. I prefer them out of the fridge over frozen, texture is much better. 30 seconds in microwave. Leave out the additional salt if using salty meat.

Can these be baked in a muffin tin or like a quiche?

Tastier than Starbucks! I made these with sautéed mushrooms, scallions, orange pepper and spinach. I replaced the heavy cream with organic non-fat greek yogurt and they were fabulous! A couple of dashes of hot sauce was genius! Since I don't have mason jars, I used a silicone mold with its cover loosely fastened.

@Carole, I meant for all the additives...spinach, etc.

@Carole, when, in what order, and how much did you add, say for a seven cup silicone mold?

I tried this recipe this morning and it was spot on! My instant pot does not have a "steam" setting but I used the rice setting and followed the same directions. I used silicon molds instead of mason jars. Not sure if it was user error or the ingredients I used but it was a tad salty. I give this recipe 5 stars. Thank you!

@Molly, did you put the foil on top of the silicone molds? Curious if that’s necessary. So excited to try this!

I agree that these were a little too salty. They turned out great though. I guess it depends on how salty your bacon and cheese are.
