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 Sous Vide 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 Sous Vide 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.

Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites
- 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.
