Have you been hearing about these Sous Vide Egg Bites that you make in the Instant Pot? Yes, they are delicious and so easy! I’ve got the recipe for you.
I am always looking for high protein breakfast options. I would love them to be, not only delicious but also, quick and easy.
These Sous Vide Egg Bites made in the Instant Pot using Mason Jars definitely fit the bill. I love using mason jars so I had this size already in my cupboard. I really like that I didn’t have to go searching for an egg mold to use in my instant pot but could just grab these mason jars instead.
If you haven’t yet made the leap and purchased an Instant Pot, I would highly recommend it. I am not an awesome cook or baker by any means. So if I can figure it out, anyone can. Trust me!
Sous Vide Egg Bites Instant Pot Recipe Using Mason Jars
So on to the recipe. When I started putting the ingredients together, my daughter wanted to know why I was getting out my Instant Pot just to make scrambled eggs. She thought it’d be a whole lot easier to just get out my frying pan. Ah, yes. It probably would be easier. Be these are not just any regular old scrambled egg. No. These are creamy, delicious, goodness with an extra protein kick.
You can customize these Sous Vide Egg Bites to your liking, of course. Here’s what I used:
4 Large Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Colby Jack Shredded Cheese
½ Cup Cottage Cheese
¼ Cup Heavy Cream
½ tsp Salt
Add 1 cup of water to the bottom of the Instant Pot and then add the IP trivet.
Using a blender, add eggs, cheese, cottage cheese, cream and salt and blend until smooth.
Pour mixture evenly into 4 mason jars (I used the 8oz).
Cover each mason jar loosely with foil and place on the trivet in the IP.
Place the lid on the IP, close the vent, choose “steam” and set to 8 minutes.
Once done, let sit for 10 minutes to do a nature pressure release (NPR) and then quick release.
Carefully remove mason jars from the IP and let cool.
I ate one right away and stored the rest in the fridge for breakfast for the week.
Now the 8 oz mason jars I used, did overflow just a bit. So if you can fit a 5th jar in your IP, the mixture would work better split between 5 vs 4 jars.
Next time I make them, I’m going to try adding either cut up ham or bacon. These Sous Vide Egg Bites made in the Instant Pot are so good and so easy.
Give them a try and let me know what you think!
