Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker Egg Bites

Pressure cooker egg bites are the perfect protein packed breakfast for busy mornings. A great Keto Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi recipe with just a few ingredients. Tastes just like the ones you buy at Starbucks. If you loved our air fryer egg bites but what them super tender try these.


Do you buy Starbucks egg bites in the morning with your coffee, well I did for a long time until I figured out how to make these pressure cooker egg bites at home!!  We’ve even had them for dinner. 😉 Yet another favorite easy Instant Pot recipes added to our list here on The Typical Mom. (affiliate links present)

Ninja Foodi Egg Bites

You can add just about any ingredients you like, but this version is meat free but still full of flavor and great when you’re on the go. This is listed in our Ninja Foodi recipes roundup too. It doesn’t matter what brand you use.

What is fun is you can change it up every single time you make them. Meat lovers is great, vegetarian works well too and low calorie like Instant Pot egg white egg bites works great too.

If you are new to pressure cooking we have a lot of easy one pot meal recipes for you here. To begin with let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have (a 6 quart) and use for all recipe creations.

Instant Pot Egg White Bites

I have made hundreds of easy Instant Pot recipes but the first time I attempted Instant Pot hard boiled eggs they were gone that very day…needless to say we’re an egg loving household.

Like I said you can use the whole thing with the yolk or just the whites if you are trying to make these healthy with less fat in them. Keep in mind that it won’t have nearly as much flavor if you do this but to each their own. Adding precooked bits of meat is our favorite add in for sure.

You can see many of the items here before we prepared them. I made a few batches, one with less cheese and more eggs, and this one with the opposite. We enjoyed more cheese personally but you could cut the cheese amount in half and add 2 more eggs instead if you’d rather.

  • That is why this egg bites recipe is so great, you can customize it to your liking.

We went for a vegetarian version this time but if you had leftover meat you could dice it up and add that too, I’d just cut down the cheese by 1/2 cup and add in 1/2 cup pre cooked meat you may have on hand. Customize them to your (and your kids) preferences. You can go nuts with these and there are tens of hundreds of different combinations that could be created. 

What is in a Starbucks egg bite? They have a few options so it depends on which one you choose. I will say these taste quite similar to those once they’re done, and are very fresh since you can eat them right after popping them out of the Instant Pot silicone mold.

Most have cheese, bacon, and diced bell peppers and/or fire roasted red peppers.

If you wanted to make their red pepper version that would be easy. Just dice your veggies small, saute and lay on paper towels so you aren’t adding oil into the mix.

  • Precook your meat and vegetables you’re going to add
    • It is important to precook your veggies too to decrease the amount of water so it cooks properly
  • Use a large measuring cup to whisk your ingredients together so then you can pour it into your Instant Pot egg bites mold easily with little to no mess
  • Add herbs and spices you like, pretend you are making an omelette and add what you normally would if making 6 eggs at a time
  • Cover the egg bites mold tightly with foil before lowering into your Instant Pot
    • Use a trivet with handles like you see here and/or create a sling out of foil so you can lift it out easily when it’s done

Why should you use aluminum foil on the top? If you don’t the steam will create a lot of water on the top of your eggs. This will not only make the texture weird, but it won’t cook properly with the additional liquid added to each hole.

Instant Pot Egg Bites without Cottage Cheese

I don’t add this, in fact it is easy to make these dairy free too. Just use alternatives into the mix and you’ll never know the difference. For my husband I do this all the time and they still come out great.

  • Allow steam to naturally release for 4 minutes 
  • Take mold out immediately after that
    • Remove foil immediately
    • Pop Instant Pot egg bites out of the mold immediately and put them on a paper towel that is placed on a plate.
      • There will be a bit of water at the bottom of each hole because of the steam and you don’t want the egg to sit in that too long, the texture won’t be good.

How many egg bites in a serving? Typically 2 is considered a serving, and enough to fill up an average size adult or teen. Once again it depends on what you add. If you are making keto low carb egg bites you may have packed them with meat which will fill you up more than veggies.

When your egg bites are done they will be a bit puffy. Once you pop them out and flip them over they’re smooth.

  • I suggest putting them on paper towels at first to absorb any liquid that has accumulated at the bottom of the mold.
    • This will then make the underside of your egg wet and you’ll want to get that off so it doesn’t start to disintegrate that area and make it mushy.
  • Of course the overall appearance of them will vary depending on the ingredients you add. But if you follow the ratio I’ve provided below they are sure to taste just as amazing as ours. 
  • They will also pop out of your Instant Pot egg bites mold easily

They’re a protein packed breakfast. Very similar to a copycat Starbucks egg bites recipe. 

How do you keep egg bites from getting soggy?

Make sure that if you add any vegetables into the whisked egg mixture with cheese that you saute them first. When done lay on some paper towels to absorb even more moisture, that will help. When making egg bites in Ninja Foodi or other pressure cooker quickly lift the lid catching the condensation underneath too.

Why do egg bites puff up?

There is air inside the eggs expand with the heat and steam. When you open it up and in the initial minutes they will look very puffy and expanded but that won’t last long. As they cool down they will slowly deflate becoming more dense.

  6. Shallot

How many calories are in an egg bites?

This varies A LOT depending on what you’re adding. If you really need a very accurate account you’d need to add together the calories of each item and how much you used. Do this before cooking to get an exact number.

At Starbucks the lowest calorie egg bite there is their Egg White & Roasted Red Pepper with spinach and Monterey Jack cheese with just 170 calories. Yes you could double the recipe if you wanted. You just have to cook in batches with the silicone muffin mold.

How to Make Egg bites in Ninja Foodi

If adding veggies into your Ninja Foodi breakfast, saute them inside the pressure cooker pot, or on stovetop in a pan.

  1. Dump on paper towel when done to absorb any liquid.
  2. Whisk eggs together in a bowl
  3. Add cooked veggies, cheese, seasonings, all the things
  4. Place trivet inside pot, add 1 cup water inside as well.
  5. Fill egg molds, cover with foil
  6. Put molds on top of trivet
  7. Close lid and set to high pressure to pressure cook for 8 minutes cooking time.
  8. Allow 4 minutes natural release when time is up, then let out rest of pressure
  9. Your Starbucks sous vide egg bites grab and go breakfasts are done!

How long do egg bites last in the fridge?

Instant Pot sous vide egg bites can be stored in the refrigerator if packaged in airtight bags or containers for up to 5 days. Personally we’ve never had any left when I make them, they go fast! I did throw 2 in though just to test this and it is fine after a few days.

  • When you’re ready to reheat egg bites just use your microwave.
  • Put on a paper towel, then on a plate for 30 seconds.
  • These could also be frozen and reheated in the microwave for one and a half to two minutes.

I’ve been making egg bites for at least a year and haven’t varied my recipe or technique at all. I use silicone, double stacked with the silicone lids. Thought I had the process nailed perfectly until the last few times. The tray on the bottom is now almost exploding out of their cups. The top tray only has four bites and they are fine. I’m curious what has been happening since I haven’t changed anything! Any ideas? Would love your input 😊

I mean typically if adding two of them the bottom will be more done than the top one. If this is new to you your pot may have had something going on?? Not sure but I would suggest getting a non stick inner pot which will add a layer of heat protection which will create a more even heat overall inside.
