Why Do Healthy Egg Recipes Make Great Meals?
Healthy egg recipes are easy to cook, packed with protein and nutrients, and budget friendly!
- Complete protein: One egg has 6 grams of protein and all the essential amino acids our body needs!
- High in vitamins and minerals: In fact, eggs contains small amounts of almost every vitamin we need.
- Family friendly: Even the most finicky kids have been known to gobble down eggs without complaint.
- Versatile: There are so many ways to enjoy eggs from casseroles to in a salad!
No, egg color is not an indicator of quality, taste, or nutrition.
Fill a bowl with cold tap water and place your egg in the bowl. If it sinks to the bottom and lays flat on one side, it’s fresh! If it stays at bottom but stands on it’s small end, it is okay to eat, but not quite as fresh. If it floats, best to discard.
Make these healthy egg recipes. 🙂 Kidding aside, healthy means something different to everyone and as for tasting good, proper preparation plus using vegetables and seasonings add a lot of taste without a ton of calories, fat, or sodium.

Best of Healthy Egg Recipes: Instant Pot Egg Bites
Optional Mix Ins:
- Handful of spinach finely chopped
- 1/2 large bell pepper diced
- Parmesan cheese grated
- In a 4 cup measuring cup, add eggs, water, baking powder, salt, pepper and whisk well.
- Spray msilicone mold with cooking spray. Add mixture into each of 14 openings about 2/3 full. If you want, add veggies and cheese now and do not stir. Close each mold with silicone lid and stack in a staggered position, so the cups don’t line up. Then you won’t have lids sucked in and deformed bites.
- Then place on top of the trivet with handles. If your trivet doesn't have handles, you might struggle getting mold placed carefully into a 6 quart pot. It is very tight and be careful not to spill.
- In Instant Pot, add 1 cup cold water. Place trivet inside, close the lid, set pressure release valve to Sealing and press Pressure Cook on Low for 8 minutes – 8 quart Instant Pot, 11 minutes – 6 quart Instant Pot.
- After turn valve to Venting. Using oven mitts and holding onto handles of the trivet or to the mold itself, remove from Instant Pot.
- Open the lids, cool off a few minutes and using small silicone spatula go around the edge staying close to the walls of each opening and release egg bites one by one.
- Store: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
- Freeze: Cook and cool egg bites. Pop in an airtight glass container with a lid and freeze for up to 3 months.
- Where can I buy a silicone mold? I bought this one, actually a set of 2, on Amazon. What I like is that it has 2 lids and not 1, to prevent spilling.
- Prep toppings small: You can add anything you want. Just make sure to dice, chop or grate finely since egg bites are small.
