The Best Instant Pot Egg Bites
We have discovered these Egg Bites last year when we’ve stopped at our local Starbucks and ordered some Sous Vide Egg Bites. They were so charming, delicious and adorable, that we just fell in love with them. Not only they are cute and easy to make, but they are the perfect family breakfast.
Also, what is great about them is that kids adore them as much as adults. Every time we make them, our son just can’t get enough of them. We decided to take it a step further and perfection the Starbucks version of this dish. Even though their version tastes good, we felt that it has too much cheese in it, and the flavors could be improved.
That’s why we decided to give this recipe a try and make it at home using the pressure cooker. We played with the ingredients a bit until we decided that we came up with the best Instant Pot Egg Bites.
They are delicious, puffy, and very versatile. In addition, they are way healthier than the Starbucks version, and you can use your favorite filling to prepare them!
