Pressure cooker egg bites are the perfect protein packed breakfast for busy mornings. A great Keto Instant Pot recipe with just a few ingredients and taste just like the ones you buy at Starbucks.
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!! 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. We’ve even had them for dinner. 😉 Yet another favorite easy Instant Pot recipes added to our list here on The Typical Mom.
- This is listed in our Ninja Foodi recipes roundup too.
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.
- I got this Instant Pot egg bites mold from Kitchen Deluxe (who generously sponsored this post) for these Instant Pot egg bites – 15% off using code TYPICALM at checkout
- It’s one of my favorite Instant Pot accessories I recommend.
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.
Here are a few tips for making the best pressure cooker egg bites
- 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
- 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 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
When your egg bites are done they will be a bit puffy. Once you pop them out and flip them over they’re smooth.
- 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 (15% off with code TYPICALM at checkout)
They’re a protein packed breakfast. Very similar to a copycat Starbucks egg bites recipe.
