Starbucks Copycat Sous Vide Egg Bites
Starbucks Copycat Sous Vide Egg Bites are even better than what you buy at the coffee shop! Light and fluffy egg, salty bacon, cooked to doneness! These egg bites are incredible, and making them at home cost a fraction of the price. Best of all you have leftover Sous Vide Egg Bites for later.
Starbucks just released their new Sous Vide Egg Bites. I went and tried one they are amazingly good. I had to rush home and make them myself in the Sous Vide. Most of you know I am obsessed with Instant Pot recipes. So I was lucky enough to be able to test out a Sous Vide from Instant pot
Starbucks Copycat Sous Vide Egg Bites
I will be bringing you more recipes for the Sous Vide Like the very best Chicken Breast. and much more. These eggs are done to perfection. The flavor of bacon and cheese is in every single bite. I can honestly say these are the best eggs I have ever had. I have tried making the eggs in muffin cups before I never liked them. They always are dried out and too eggy. These are perfect to make ahead and pop in the microwave for breakfast on your way out the door.
What’s In Sous Vide Egg Bites
For my egg bite recipe, I use eggs, bacon, and a variety of cheese. I then cook it with the Sous Vide method which leaves your eggs silky and velvety. Then each bite has cheese and bits of bacon in them. What Do You Cook Sous Vide Egg Bites In
I used 4 oz mason jars for my egg bites. I found that they are a perfect size and worked great in the Sous Vide! If you have another form of sealing up the egg mixture go for it. The mason jars are a great option if you have some on hand.
Can I Add Veggies To My Egg Bites
Yes. If you want to add in chopped peppers, onions, etc. simply chop up the vegetables nice and small. then mix it in and pour into the batter. Green chilis, diced tomatoes, onions, peppers, broccoli, would all be great options.
How Long Do Egg Bites Last In The Fridge
You can keep Instant Pot Sous Vide Egg Bites in the fridge for up to 1 week. Anything after I recommend tossing out or using your best judgment in terms of if they have gone bad.
Can You Freeze Egg Bites
Yes. These Sous Vide bites freeze rather well. Just freeze right in the mason jars or transfer into an airtight container or freezer bag. Then store up to three months in the freeze.
Best Way To Reheat Sous Vide Eggs
- Fresh | Place on a plate and microwave for around 30 seconds, and then serve.
- Frozen | If frozen place on a plate and then reheat for 1 1/2 minutes to 2 minutes or until your eggs are warmed through.
Can You Swap Meat In Sous Vide Eggs
There are endless ways to dress up your eggs. You can use other types of meat like Canadian bacon, diced ham, sausage, and the list goes on. Just make sure if you are using a meat that creates grease, that you drain as much as you can off before stirring in with your egg mixture.
Give this recipe a try today, and let me know what you think of the homemade egg bites.
Can Starbucks Egg bites be made in the Instant Pot?
No, they will not taste anything like the Starbucks eggs. Trust me I have tried. If you would like to make them in the oven you can check out Breakfast Eggers

You are speedy fast! I was so happy to see this when I googled searched. What size mason jars did you use?
Sorry, didn’t read closely enough. Hate when people do that. I see they are 4oz! Thanks
LOL I do that all the time
So, thought I’d go all hispter and not pop these guys out of the mini ball jars. Mistake when not using Pam or an organic Pam alternative!!!!!! Getting the baked on eggs off the jars (even after TWO Heavy Duty wash cycles in the dishwasher!!!) was A LOT OF HARD WORK!!!! The main reason (other than taste!) to mass produce these on the weekend is EASE AND SIMPLICITY!!! If you do not use a base to make them pop out of the jars easily, you are in for an effort! Not a deal breaker, because, YUM!!!!, but a toothbrush, dawn,+baking soda is NOT my idea of EASY!!!!
Also, does anyne know if you can re-use the lids to make another batch? I see on canning blogs, that the lids are one-time use only, but think this isn’t a similar application?
yes you can reuse the lids 🙂
I just have a plastic tub container to soak the jars overnight. Wipe them with sponge next day and put in dishwasher. I do that before I heat the next morning souvide bites in microwave, so I won’t mix them up in the plastic tub.
Did you seal the jars with a vacuum sealer or just by closing the lid?
Just closing the lid 🙂
I love these at starbucks so I loved finding this recipe. I do not have a sous vide and also googled how to mock it. I used my calphalon large pot with basket and frequently checked temp and stirred water. Otherwise followed the recipe as stated but doubled to use 12 jars. I also used soy milk. Results were good but I feel like it turned out more bland than starbucks. They are very moist and look awesome but maybe aged cheeses would add some flavor.
Thx for the recipe!
I think the Sous Vide helps a lot to keep the flavor in.
You mentioned using your instapot as your souls vide. How did you do that? Want to use my instapot instead of buying a separate appliance.
I do not use my Instant Pot as a sous vide that is another appliance made by instant pot 🙂
Would you share what appliance you used?
Sous Vide from instant Pot
Good recipe. these is not eggs but cottage cheese! I wonder what adding cottage cheese to this recipe would do. Also, the one time I tried these at Starbucks they seemed lightly seared or toasted on the outside. Any insight as to the best way to replicate this? A quick toss in the frying pan?
yes you could either tourch them or throw them in a pan for a few seconds 🙂
The “sear” you see from Starbucks is from the oven cooking the egg bites which are refrigerated. They cook in specialized ovens for +/- one minute. The closest appliance I have found that cooks food like Starbucks or Starbucks food if you buy it and cook it at home is the Phillips airfryer. Use the grill pan and heat in the airfryer at mid temperature for the same appearance. The airfryer does NOT dry out for like an conventional oven does.
Tried this morning- VERY good! Thank you.
Glad you liked it 🙂
Hi, do you have to have the machine or anyway to make this in the oven?? Or IP?
You can do them in the oven or in the instant pot but it is a different consistancy
how can I make these in the instantpot??
These are amazing. I’ve made them a few times already… three Sundays in a row! This last time I doubled the recipe and made a dozen so I could freeze a bunch. I’m not sure what was different about mine, but when I reheated one of them in the microwave, the texture was so gross. It was like a firm sponge. So much different than when they are refrigerated and reheated. How did you freeze yours? I had one right when they were done and they came out perfectly. So, I was bummed that I had to toss out 11 of the dozen I made. The texture was so off-putting, I couldn’t eat them.
hummm not sure what happened that stinks so sorry 🙁
If you used milk remember it has water. When you freeze them the molecules condense. Once you unfreeze then cook them in the microwave, the molecules expand quickly giving the spongy texture.
You could try letting them thaw thoroughly allow the water molecules to expand slowly and then heating then in the oven wrapped in parchment paper to steam them. Unwrap and broil for a few seconds to give the finished appearance and taste.
Or after unthawing pop them in an airfryer if you have one.
Thanks so much! That makes sense. 🙂 That texture was pretty awful, so knowing what happened definitely helps.
Another blogger (wellness mama) say : less cook for freezer bites ( 10 min less). Then complete cook in microwave oven when need to eat. Also use cottage cheese! and mature cheese. muuuuah !
Does anyone know how one would make these in an IP without the attachment? So want to make these!!!
I just bought a sous vide machine and this is the first recipe that I am trying. They are in the water as I write this.
I have a dumb question… you say to set the sous vide fir the correct temp. Am I correct in assuming that the water needs to come up to the correct temp before you put the jars in the water? My sous vide doesn’t have a lot of instructions with it.
You can put almost anything into the water bath while your sous vide preheats. I think that method is best in this case to prevent your jars from breaking.
Are people bringing the water to temp and then putting the jars in…. I did it that way once… but just now blew the bottom out of 2 jars by putting them in the hot water…. they are ball jars.
Another blogger (wellness mama) say : Less cook for freezer bites ( 10 min less). Then complete cook one minute in microwave oven when need to eat. Also she use cottage cheese! and mature cheese
Delish thanks. Have you done a nutrition card for these? Should we assume that that stats are about the same as the real Starbucks ones?
If you put the mix in mason jars and seal them, then put the sealed mason jars in hot water, don’t the mason jars break or even explode? Are the mason jars submerged?
Tempted but worried,
yes the jars are fine in the sous vide submerged
I just made these from your recipe this morning…AMAZING!
So glad you liked them 🙂
Do you think this would work if you made one giant egg bite, as in a frittata?
Do you think this would work as a giant egg bite, frittata style?
Yes But I have not tried that
you can also make these without a sous vide. just bake them in the oven in a water bath. I put a tin foil “lid” over each custard cup. Baked them at 170 for about 90 minutes and they turned out great! They will be great for those 12 hour night shifts.
I sprayed my jars, two slid from my fingers and hit the floor.
just kidding, thanks for the recipe.
Can you leave the eggs in the jar till you use??
yes you can
