These egg bites are similar to what you would get at Starbucks but you can customize them and they are so much more economical. They only take a few ingredients and very little effort to make.

Starting your day off with a bit of protein helps to keep you full and satisfied. These egg bites are a great way to get that breakfast hit in a cute little package.

Ingredients ready to be made into egg bites.

All you need is an instant pot and a silicone mold for your instant pot. The resulting bites are a great make ahead breakfast or snack.

They can be made in bulk and reheated later. You can also have different mix ins in each bite as well, so you can make each individual one with their own favorites.

We made this whole batch with sausage and cheese. You could also add vegetables, ham or bacon if you would like.

One small tip would be to saute the vegetables a bit before using them if you can. It helps to reduce the liquid content and will help the egg bites hold together.

Storing and reheating egg bites

Leftover egg bites can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. So you can make extras and enjoy them throughout the week.

Warm an egg bite or two up in the microwave. Start heating them up for about thirty seconds and add more time if necessary.

If you would like to store them longer, you can freeze them for several months. Freeze them separately first then add them to a bag once frozen.

Defrost the egg bites overnight before reheating them. That way they can warm through without getting overcooked on the outside.

I want to try this soon. I don’t have that insert for my IP but may steam them in my poached egg pan. Think that would work?

I would think so. Small jars would probably work as well!
