How to Make Instant Pot Egg Bites?
Instant Pot Kitchen Supplies
- Instant Pot Inner Pot – I like to have an extra inner pot available because of how much cooking I do in my Instant Pot. It comes in really handy when I want to put a lid on the inner pot and refrigerate the leftovers, or mix up ingredients the night before to save time at the end of the day.
- Silicone Lid for Instant Pot– I’m not sure how I lived without this one. Having a silicone lid for my Instant Pot has made life so much easier. It is perfect for adding ingredients a day or two ahead of time.

While Starbucks might make their egg bites sous vide (which does take a lot of time and effort), you can recreate and achieve pretty much the same texture and taste if you try making them in your instant pot.
It also saves up a lot of your time and effort, which is another plus, especially for all those on a time crunch.
These egg bites can turn out to be a super convenient and delicious breakfast option. They’re packed with a lot of protein as well, so that’s another tick on the box right there. Team it up with your morning cup of coffee and you’re good to go.
In fact, these egg bites can also be a great low carb and keto friendly breakfast option.
Not a bacon person? Or maybe you just want to create another variant of these creamy egg bites.
Whatever it is, you’ll be happy to know that you actually do have a lot of scope to turn things around and give these egg bites your own take- depending on your taste and preferences.
For instance, they can taste amazing when you replace the bacon with roasted bell peppers or add in a little turkey into the mix. You can also try making one with spinach- a great way to get more of that green veggie into your meals.
Another excellent variant to try out is to use cooked broccoli and sneak in cheddar cheese too. And if you’re a pizza lover to the core, you can try making a variant with sundried tomatoes and basil.
Can I Store These?
Well, now comes the answer to the question you’ve probably got in the back of your head.
Yes, you can actually batch make these egg bites on a weekend and store them in the refrigerator- they should last you easily for 3 days.
In fact, you can also pop them in the freezer and they should stay good there for up to 2 months or so.
