Recipe: Sous Vide Egg Bites

Quick squirrel for you today!  A friend (the Haphazard Chef) posted a sous vide egg bite recipe for the Instant Pot months ago.  I combined it with another recipe and so far the hubby and I are pretty happy with it.




  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (we use colby jack or sharp cheddar)
  • 3/4 cup of cottage cheese
  • 3/4 cup of greek yogurt
  • salt and pepper
  • 3-4 slices of bacon, crumbled (based on your preference)


  1. Spray silicone food tray with non-stick spray and add bacon crumbles to each well.
  2. Blend:  eggs, shredded cheese, cottage cheese, greek yogurt and salt & pepper.
  3. Pour egg mixture into silicone food tray (1/2-2/3 full depending on preference).   This recipe will fill 2 food trays with trays 2/3 full.  Cover each tray with foil.
  4. Add steamer insert to instant pot with 1 cup of water.  Add 1st covered food tray and second steamer insert on top, careful not to tear foil.  Add 2nd covered food tray.
  5. Close top and make sure that steam valve is closed.  Select steam and set for 8 min.
  6. Allow time 10 min after steam setting is finished for pressure equilibration. (Total time:  around 5-10 min to start steam, 8 min for steam and 10 for natural pressure release).
  7. Remove and cool egg bites.
  8. Refrigerate and reheat in toaster oven for best quality and texture.
