Instant Pot Egg Bites

Starbucks Egg Bites

Oh, my word. I have been so sceptical about Instant Pot egg bites because if you know me, I do not love extra gadgets. But boy, was I ever wrong. Armed with a few silicone egg bite molds, not only do we make egg bites by the dozen on Sundays, but also Instant Pot cheesecake bites on Fridays. And Instant Pot poached eggs for a Sunday brunch.

I have tried Starbucks egg bites once. Because the price tag is $5 for 2. Crazy! And I kept thinking that making egg muffins is just the same. Wrong. Be ready to be blown away! You can make this Instant Pot egg bites recipe plain or add veggies and cheese. So good either way!

Instant Pot egg bites just melt in your mouth and are so easy, easy, easy. Just look at this texture!!! Fluffy, soft and so moist with 5 minutes prep. And these mini egg muffins happen to be also low carb and keto friendly.

I’m obsessed with my Instant Pot because it makes healthy breakfast so much easier! For example, make a batch of Instant Pot yogurt to enjoy with granola any time. That’s 3 minute breakfast. Or set Instant Pot steel cut oats before jumping into the shower.

Meal prep at its best. Let’s make some killer egg bites in your Instant Pot!

Ingredients for Instant Pot Egg Bites

One main ingredient. I mean who doesn’t have staples like baking powder, salt, pepper and water at all times, right?! I assure you don’t need anything else except optional add-ins in next step. And without cottage cheese unlike many recipes out there.

  • Eggs
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Water

eggs, salt and pepper

No Need for Blender

After testing egg bites, one thing I can tell you I did not like using a blender. Maybe because my egg bites recipe contains no cheese but blended mixture got so thin, even ground pepper and salt settled at the bottom of the bite. Making one side spicy and another side plain. Yuck.

No blender. Even easier for me, a busy mom. Trust me, I hate washing blender and meat cutting board more than anything.

Optional Mix Ins and Toppings

If your kids are anything like my kids, they like things plain. But I still try with veggies and succeed many times. I usually make 2 batches of egg bites in Instant Pot – plain and with veggies. That’s right – 28 egg bites. To keep kids happy.

bell pepper, spinach, parmesan cheese

You can add anything you want. Just make sure to dice, chop or grate finely since egg bites are small.

  • Veggies: bell pepper, mushrooms, spinach, kale, zucchini, broccoli, asparagus.
  • Jarred and canned goods: sun dried tomatoes, green chiles, olives.
  • Cheese: Parmesan, Gruyere, Cheddar, Swiss, Feta.
  • Meat: fried bacon bits, sausage, chicken leftovers.

Where Can I Get This Silicone Mold?

To make egg bites in Instant Pot you have to have a silicone mold. Actually two with two lids. Sorry but I tried my way around it for over a year and finally buckled up and spent some money haha.

I got this one on Amazon. What I like is that it has 2 lids and not 1 to prevent spilling. And lid is also silicone, so I’m not cooking plastic.

Can I Use Egg Whites?

I believe Starbucks sous vide egg bites contain only egg whites. You will need 2 1/4 cups of egg whites. And I also believe you will have to whisk them with a real whisk not a fork. Just to mix well.

What Size Instant Pot Do I Need?

You will need 6 quart or 8 quart Instant Pot. Silicone mold will not fit into a 3 quart pressure cooker.

How to Make Instant Pot Egg Bites

  • Prep: Add 1 cup cold water to 6 or 8 quart Instant Pot and spray silicone mold well with cooking spray. Make sure to coat bottom and sides. How to Make Instant Pot Egg BitesHow to Make Instant Pot Egg Bites
  • Make egg mixture: In a large (4 cup) measuring cup whisk eggs, water, baking powder, salt and pepper. You can use any large vessel with a spout for easy pouring into the molds. Then pour egg mixture into each mold about 2/3 full. How to Make Instant Pot Egg Bites
  • Add toppings: Now you can add toppings like veggies, meat and cheese. No need to stir them as they will sink anyways. That’s why we do not mix toppings with egg mixture. So easy!How to Make Instant Pot Egg Bites
  • Stack molds: Close each silicone mold with a lid, stack on top of each other (preferably in staggered position – I learnt that after) and place on trivet with handles. The one pictured came with my stackable stainless steel pans to cook 2 things at a time. I also have this one that came with my Instant Pot DUO 8 quart. How to Make Instant Pot Egg Bites
  • Pressure cook on Low: Then close the lid, move valve to Sealing and Pressure Cook on Low for 8 minutes – 8 quart Instant Pot, 11 minutes – 6 quart Instant Pot. And then we release pressure using Quick Release.Instant Pot Egg Bites cooked

How to Release Egg Bites from the Mold

Despite the silicone mold being non-stick and using a cooking spray, I recommend to grab a small silicone spatula and go around the edges and bottom really tight and close to the mold. This will result in perfectly looking egg bites.

To be able to pop egg bites out of the mold, you would have to wait a few hours for egg bites to cool off. Like a very long time, if you ask me.:)

Can I Freeze Egg Bites?

Yes, absolutely. Cook and cool egg bites. Pop in an airtight glass container with a lid and freeze for up to 3 months. If you want to freeze in a resealable Ziploc bag, lay egg bites flat first and then toss deeper into the freezer with frozen egg bites. They are just delicate.

How to Reheat Egg Bites

Because egg bites are small, they are quick to reheat. Pop a few on a plate in the microwave and reheat for 1 – 1.5 minutes from frozen or 30 seconds for fresh. It really depends on your microwave.

For the fun fact, we do not have a microwave by choice. Maybe one day. I don’t mind my egg bites cold.

Enjoy!

  • If you would like, add toppings like veggies and cheese. No need to 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.

  • Place trivet Inside Instant Pot, 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.

Notes

  • Storing: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to  5 days.
  • Reheating: Because egg bites are small, they are quick to reheat. Pop a few on a plate in the microwave and reheat for 1 - 1.5 minutes from frozen or 30 seconds for fresh. It really depends on your microwave. For the fun fact, we do not have a microwave by choice. Maybe one day. I don't mind my egg bites cold.
  • Freezing: Cook and cool egg bites. Pop in an airtight glass container with a lid and freeze for up to 3 months. If you want to freeze in a resealable Ziploc bag, lay egg bites flat first and then toss deeper into the freezer with frozen egg bites. They are just delicate.
  • Instant Pot size: You will need 6 quart or 8 quart Instant Pot. Silicone mold will not fit into a 3 quart pressure cooker.
  • Where can I get this 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. Pay attention that lid is also silicone and not plastic, so you will not cook it.
  • Egg whites: You can replace eggs with 2 1/4 cups of egg whites. And I also believe you will have to whisk them with a real whisk not a fork. Just to mix well.
  • No Low pressure option? If your Instant Pot doesn't have Low pressure, you can cook on High - egg bites will puff up more.
  • Prep toppings small: You can add anything you want. Just make sure to dice, chop or grate finely since egg bites are small.
  • Toppings ideas: 
    • Veggies: bell pepper, mushrooms, spinach, kale, zucchini, broccoli, asparagus.
    • Jarred and canned goods: sun dried tomatoes, green chiles, olives.
    • Cheese: Parmesan, Gruyere, Cheddar, Swiss, Feta.
    • Meat: fried bacon bits, sausage, chicken leftovers.
