I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but honestly I (Dave) do not tend to eat it that often. I start my day early. As you can imagine, by the time I lift my head up from the computer it is typically time for lunch. That said, breakfast foods can be eaten any time of the day! Instant Pot Egg Bites are easy to make! They are also quick to cook (and clean up), and they store in the refrigerator perfectly.
I wasn’t sure if the kids would be interested as they have never had eggs that look like this before. As expected, Harrison was hesitant. He did wind up eating a full egg bite but my little girl devoured FOUR.
Go Wild With Your Instant Pot Egg Bites
It’s time to go wild! Starting off with the receipt below will get you in the groove. From there, you know what to do! Add your favorite ingredients, get wild with what cheese you use. Heck, go all veggie on some and all meat on others. To summarize, these are YOUR egg bites, and they are ready for you to go wild!
1/2 cupMild or Medium Cheddar Cheese Shreddedor Gouda, Mozzarella, any mild cheese
~1/8tsp Black Pepper
4slicesBacon precooked and chopped smallor Ham, Turkey, Chicken…
2Green Onions sliced smallor 1/4 Red Bell Pepper, 1/4 cup chopped spinach
Add cheddar cheese, ricotta cheese, cream, eggs, salt, and pepper to the blender and blend for 60 seconds
Add chopped bacon and green onions (or other ingredients you'd like to add) evenly to the egg bite molds, about 2 tsp worth per cup
Pour the egg and cheese mixture evenly into the molds with the bacon and green onions
Cover the egg bite molds with the silicone covers that came with the molds or use aluminum foil
Add 1 cup of water to the instant pot and if your mold does not have a built in trivet, place your trivet into the instant pot as well
I stack two egg bite molds on top of one another and make 14 egg bites at once
Put your instant pot lid on, seal it, pressure cook for 10 minutes and do a 10 minute natural pressure release
Release the pressure, remove the lid, and move the egg bite molds to your counter top
Let cool for ~5 minutes
Remove the lid, place a cutting board on top of the mold and flip the mold and cutting board over
Jiggle the mold a little bit while lifting the mold and your egg bites will be sitting right side up on your cutting board
Enjoy your breakfast!
If you go heavy on vegetables that have a lot of water in them, I recommend an extra minute in the instant pot. We eat our egg bites with our favorite salsa or by themselves. Enjoy!
Ready to use that Instant Pot more?
The best resource we have is all of the amazing videos that Dave has posted on YouTube. I highly recommend subscribing to his channel. If you’ve got that Instant Pot sitting by, collecting dust — his videos will inspire you to get it out and go nuts! There are weeks that the ONLY thing we use is the Instant Pot. Tiny living aside, it’s a great way to cook your dinner up fast! It also can be used as a slower cooker (stay tuned, more recipes on this soon).
