Starbucks Egg Bites Recipe (1)

This recipe for Starbucks egg bites saves me time and money. I love to make for my kids ahead of time for a quick and easy breakfast.

I love creating copycat Starbucks recipes for our favorite meu items. These egg bites and Starbucks Egg White Bites were easy to recreate with simple ingredients. The egg bites cook perfectly in a muffin pan and they taste even better.

I like to meal prep for the week with these egg bites and add in other ingredients to add flavor. For more quick and easy breakfast ideas, check out Quiche Muffins, Easy Homemade Blueberry Muffins, Scrambled Egg Sandwich or Lazy Day Cinnamon Biscuits.

Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites:

The egg bites that Starbucks make are referred to as Sous Vide Egg Bites. Which is a French Technique that vacuum-seals food and then cook in a water bath to a precise temperature. This creates a silky and custard like texture that makes Starbucks Version Egg Bites different.

But if you have been following me for awhile, you know that I like to keep things simple. There is no need for a sous vide machine when you can use a muffin pan to make the egg bites. They also taste even better.

We have simplified the Starbucks Egg Bites recipe. So that you can easily make them at home without any fancy equipment or egg bite molds.

Why Make Bacon & Gruyere Egg Bites:

Making these Bacon & Gruyère egg bites have been a game changer for my family. The recipe indicates simple ingredients but we always add in our favorite vegetables or different type of cheese’s.

The bacon and gruyere that are added to the low carb egg bites really gives it so much flavor. These egg bites become an instant breakfast without a lot of work.

Making my coffee at home and grabbing one of these egg bites as I head out the door. Saves me time and money.

Ingredients:

  • Pepper

For the full recipe and ingredients, scroll to the bottom for the recipe card.

Variations:

We love this simple recipe but we also love that we can change it to what we have on hand.

  • Change the Meat – Use crumbled sausage instead of bacon. Or try both for meat lovers. You can also use diced up ham.
  • Omit the Meat – If you don’t have any meat, a meat free option turned out great.
  • Add in Vegetables – Add diced onion, red bell pepper, tomatoes, green pepper, green onion, mushroom, spinach, basil, broccoli, and more. We like adding any chopped up vegetables that we have on hand.
  • Change the Cheese – Cheddar, mozzarella, swiss cheese, cream cheese, colby and pepper jack make great options. We have even used feta cheese for delicious flavor.
  • Egg White – You can also make these with just egg whites to lower the calorie.
  • Top with Hot Sauce – We love to drizzle the egg bites with hot sauce or ketchup.
  • Baking Dish – If you do not have a muffin pan, you can spread the egg mixture into a 8×8 baking dish. You can even make them in the instant pot with the trivet insert.

How to Make Starbucks Egg Bites Recipe:

  • Prepare oven and muffin pan – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin generously with a non-stick cooking spray.

Step 4 – Add Bacon – Top each egg bite with the chopped bacon and gently press them down with a spoon. So they are in the egg mixture and not just on top. Then bake egg bites for about 30 minutes.

Can you Make Ahead?

These are the perfect breakfast to make ahead. If you are planning your meals for the week, add these egg bites to the list. The ingredients are simple and you can definitely change them to what you have on hand.

The store in the refrigerator easily or you can freeze them too.

Can I use a Regular Size Muffin Pan?

Yes, we used the regular size muffin pan when we made the copycat egg bites. Make sure you grease the pan for ease of removing them. But you can also use a silicone muffin to be able to poo the egg bites out.

How to Freeze:

These are perfect to freeze and enjoy for a quick breakfast. Just place in a freeze bag for later. When ready to eat, I suggest letting them thaw over night in the fridge. Then reheating in the microwave for a really quick breakfast option.

When you are ready to freeze, cool egg bites to room temperature. I like to place them in a freezer bag or freezer container to be able to enjoy later. Once you are ready to serve, they taste just you made them that day.

You can even make these to take while traveling. They are great for vacation and more.

How to Reheat:

Reheat the leftovers in the microwave for 50-60 seconds.No need to thaw them out before reheating. Remove the amount you are going to eat or serve and place them on a microwave safe plate.

Heat for about a minute and your breakfast is done.
