Instant Pot Egg Bites are super easy and fun to make in the pressure cooker. They are delicious and are the perfect addition to your breakfast menu. Also, check out the short video tutorial attached below!

We love eggs for breakfast, but these bites are so versatile and fun to make, that everyone should try them! You can also mix them with vegan french toast, pancakes, or pecan pie cinnamon rolls.

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 perfect 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!

How to Make Instant Pot Egg Bites?

If you love a great and fun breakfast, you surely will love making this recipe. Along with the ingredients from the recipe card below, you will need:

  • An Instant Pot – we love this one as it has many functions and it’s quite handy.
  • A silicone mold – this one is perfect for the bites, resulting in fluffy texture.
  • Trivet – to place the mold on top of it.

If you haven’t use the pressure cooker before, this is the perfect recipe to start utilizing it! It is one of the simplest dishes you can make and a good way to practice your IP skills.

Once you have the ingredient and the tools ready, start by mixing the ingredients together, to give them a fluffy texture. Then, pour the mixture into a greased silicone mold.

Then, pour a cup of water in the pressure cooker, and place the silicone mold with the mixture on top of the trivet. All that is left is to close the lid and cook on high for 8 minutes, followed by natural pressure release.

Some nice variations for Instant Pot Egg Bites:

You can also enjoy this dish with various other ingredients. Some of our favorites once are:

  • Spinach, tomato, and corn.
  • Spinach, mushroom, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Sausage, mushroom, and mozzarella cheese.
  • Tomato, onion, and sweet pepper.
  • Rotisserie chicken with Roma tomatoes. 
  • Cheddar, black beans with salsa.
  • Crumbled Feat with olives and chopped tomatoes. 

What is the recommended serving size for this recipe?

Usually, we serve about 2-3 egg bites per person depending on how hungry one is. Also, if you serve them with additional side dishes such as French toasts, then I would suggest going with 2 bites.

Can I store the Egg Bites?

Absolutely! Storing them is a perfect alternative to enjoy them the next day. Prior to placing them in the fridge, make sure they are completely cooled. Then, transfer them to an airtight container and store them in the fridge. They can be stored for up to 3 days. 

To reheat them, transfer the eggs to a microwave-safe plate, and microwave for about 30 seconds, or until completely warm.

I love how versatile my instant pot is. I love making recipes like this, and look forward to making these, once I get a mold and trivet!

One question, IP goes to warm after cooking. 5 min. natural release on warm or turn to off after cooking time is finished?

On warm or turn off, its the same thing for NPR.

Just made this and it was delicious! Perfect texture and flavor. Made with gruyere cheese.

We love egg bites and the various ways to make them. Our favorite is with bacon or sausage and a good quality shredded Parmesano Reggiano cheese. I usually double the recipe and make fourteen at a time. I freeze them taking out what we want the night before and then reheat in the microwave the next morning. You would never know they had been frozen. They are the perfect take along for camping or RV travel.

Perfectly delicious! One of the most difficult things to master with egg bites is ensuring the ingredients ratio produces a consistent texture in the finished product. You nailed it!

Perfect! Texture is amazing and cooked to perfection. Thank you for a great recipe.

My silicone molds came with silicone lids. Should the molds be covered while cooking?

no, not during cooking.

These look great! Do you know how I would adjust the cooking time for twice the amount of egg bites? I am using two stackable molds.

Can I ask do you cover the egg bites while they are cooking?

Followed recipe almost to a "T". They were fantastic. I ate two as soon as they cooled. I'll definitely be making more. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This recipe turned out great!! I put a cube of Gouda in the center instead of cheddar and it was so good! Other than that I followed the recipe 100% and it will be a recipe I will use in the future.

Can these be frozen? I would like to make them all at once but can’t obviously eat them all.

Reply

Yes, sure. Just add them to a freezer bag and freeze.

csn Two molds be cooked st once! I assume one cooks them without the cover on?

Reply

yes, better to place a long legged trivet between them in that case

Omg it came out so good and really easy to follow. I only have plant base milk at home it works just fine. I used sun-dried tomato, cheddar and green onion with tons of paprika as filling because these are what I have at home. Thank you so much for sharing!

Loved them. Can I freeze them? They were so pretty with the sprinkled bacon

Reply

Yes, you could. Just let them cool prior to freezing. Then, transfer to a freezer-safe dish. They can be frozen for up to 3 months. Reheat prior to serving. Glad you have loved them!

This is the only recipe that I have found that does not call for cottage cheese which is something I cannot eat. What is used as a replacement ? I am so thrilled to find the recipe without it.

Reply

Hi, I am sorry, I can't really point what is used as a replacement as I never replaced it :) I just make mine like these all the time.

I am so excited to try these. I have them in the IP now. I just bought one, and have tried several recipes in the oven, but that just always makes me go back to buying them at SB. Thank you!

I don't have a food processor, would a blender work?

Yes, it will work well.

First time making these and they're really good! I followed recipe but I covered it loosely with tin foil. They still rose quite a bit. how do I keep that from happening? What I really liked about this was the absence of heavy cream, half and half, etc. It was a simple and fairly healthy base: milk+eggs. I can't wait to try these with breakfast sausage and spinach! Yum! Thanks for sharing.

Reply

I am very happy that you liked the recipe, they will still rise a bit as thats how egg tends to behave, you can fill them less so when they rise, they are just the right size. You can also add more cheese and less milk, this will reduce the rising as well.

I made some with bacon (heat and eat to save time) and some with chopped maple chicken breakfast sausage and they were a win! Had to do two bouts of cooking in my 6qt IP and used silicone muffin/cupcake wrappers for the sausage batch. Use my immersion blender because it's easy to clean. Worked great. Thanks!

These were amazing!!! i used to make a similar recipe in the oven but just got an instant pot- and these were SOO much tastier, even my husband loved them (added plus so easy to clean up) Thank you!!

I cover mine with a paper towel, and aluminum foil over that. This tip is from other users. It helps with the moisture from the steam process. I love these eggbites. Great for a work snack

Instead of bacon, I sauteed chopped ham, red bell pepper and onion. So good!

Where are the recipes for the other types? I am specifically interested in the one with salsa. How much do you use?

A tablespoon per egg bite.

Just wondering since I don't have a blender or food processor, can I just whip the eggs up with a fork and get the same results?

Reply

Use a whisk or a fork, but make sure you whisk them really well.

Are the nutritional facts based off the 7 egg bites or the 2-3 recommended serving?

Reply

The nutrition value is per egg bite

Reply

Becky

I followed the recipe but the bites were not cooked all the way. There were only 2-3 that cooked thoroughly. What did I do wrong? Thanks.

Reply

Did you cook on high pressure?

Dear Cat Many thanks for this recipe, I’ve tried a few and I don’t like cottage cheese in the my egg bites. These however, were amazing

Super

so for the other recipes how much do you add I love veggies thanks

Reply

Just a bit of everything, like 1/4 bell pepper, or 1/2 a tomato, or soma sauteed spinach.

A (mostly rhetorical) question and a suggestion: What is the mold lid used for if you cook without it and do not store the cooked bites in the mold? A better sequence in the pre-cooking process is to put the filled mold on the handled trivet then lower both into the pot. Lowering the filled mold onto the trivet that’s in the pot is challenging! Great recipe.

I read on another recipe that they used parchment paper between the eggs and on top to cover them. Thinking of trying them today.

Reply

Laurie

OMG. This was going to be the recipe I would try for my first attempt. It seemed very simple. Don't let that fool you. Yes they are simple but WOW, the taste is outstanding. I would have taken a pic if they had lasted long enough. These little pieces of heaven are packed with flavour. I swapped ham for bacon and spices to my liking but this is our new family favourite.

Love the flavor of these, but the pepper all sank to the bottom. I may have to leave this out of the recipe.

I don’t have milk can I use half and half?

yes

Nancy

Can you just put the lid on bottom one and stack? Also, are the calories listed or one egg bite or your suggested serving of 2?

Reply

its better to cover them with foil and stack. Yes, the calories are for one egg bite.

Brenda

Simple & good! These were flavorful and the texture was dense but smooth. And unlike some other egg bite recipes, I liked that I didn't need cottage cheese or heavy cream, etc. so could make it with what I typically have on hand. Hint: I found I didn't need to add any salt when using bacon and cheddar cheese. The parsley turned the eggs a pale green which wasn't bad but might be off-putting to some. I made a 2nd batch and left out the parsley, instead added a generous tbsp. of chipotle salsa for a bit of smoky flavor. Also I sprayed the mold well with PAM and distributed it with a pastry brush since I've found the silicone molds can sometimes stick when lightly oiling with olive oil or butter.

Reply

Sharon

Thanks for the recipe! These were delicious! I sprayed my mold with olive oil Pam and substituted fresh chives for the parsley. I mixed everything in my Magic Bullet just because it's so easy. I also used the silicone top because I didn't realize you weren't supposed to. LOL. The egg bites rose and lifted the top off but they were perfect. Can't wait to try other versions. Thanks again!

Angela Elliott

Do you really pit the cheese in the blender? Can you also just put shredded cheese in the cups before filling?

Reply

yes, you can do that too. But since the cheese is heavier it may fall to the bottom.

Reply

Heather

I have an 8-quart IP. Would that change the amount of water I use? I can't find that on any recipe so far. I assume the molds need to sit in a certain water level.

Reply

use the minimum water requirement for your IP.

Can I use small ceramic or Pyrex custard bowls? I have small muffin pans..??

Yes, those work.

Best egg bite recipe!! I did steam setting instead of high pressure and they turned out perfect!

Reply

Bryan Starliper

Yes Gruyere cheese makes it creamier

Reply

Bryan Starliper

Debbie, You do not need sous vide but I must say there is a world of difference cooked low temp in sous vide then steamed under pressure. sous vide is more consistent as long as you let the air bubbles out from the blending so much air in them. They are a solid creamy texture like firm custard and steamed is similar to baking them. Also when you blend the cheese in that is what makes it smoother than just sprinkling in the milk-egg mixture. Milk makes it a moist spongy texture that needs cheese blended in. I like to add chopped spinach and red peppers filled enough in the cups so they don't sink to the bottom but are through the cup AND I do cover mine so steam doesn't settle on top This is a great place to start with this easy delicious recipe

Reply

Bryan Starliper

Does it make you sick?? Or the taste? It isn't in this recipe but it does make a nice texture you can use ricotta cheese instead....or try cottage you won't even know it's in there unless you cant eat it due to issues.

Reply

Melissa

I made these and I used a blend of frozen ingredients. They tasted over cooked, they were very dense. They were good but I think I’m going to cut back the cooking time. They also puffed up a lot. At least an inch above the top of the mold.

Reply

Hi Melissa, these issues could've happened because of the extra liquid from the frozen veggies.

Reply

Kerry

Yum! Simple and delish. I look forward to making many of the other suggested variations.

Reply

Sheila

These are so good! I used sausage and stacked my silicone molds using a trivit. I did not cover them. It made more than my molds would hold so I used 1 less egg for the next batch and it was perfect. Thank you for this delicious recipe.

Thank you for your review!

I made these with my grandwonders!!! I used swiss and gruyere, sauted asparagus, scallions, and mushrooms!!! These are so simple and delicious!!! Made plain cheese for the kids and they are every one!!! I was glad I put veggies in the others or I wouldn't have had any left!!! Yum!!

Christina Staub

No ricotta or cottage cheese. And all I have is oat milk. I was skeptical. But i had extra eggs and if it was not good, no big loss. Actually super easy and delicious. Husband says 1 is filling. Thanks!!
