Ingredients/Variations

EGGS Whole eggs are used in this recipe, but you can certainly use egg whites if that’s what you prefer! I usually figure two egg whites equals one egg. You can use all egg whites, or add in a few whole eggs, as long as the math adds up!

MILK Adding milk makes these egg bites super creamy! Use cream or almond milk if you don’t have milk.

SEASONINGS These egg bites are simply delicious, using only salt & pepper as seasonings. Why not try adding your own seasoned salt, cajun seasoning, or even taco seasoning to give these egg bites a kick?

ADD-INS This recipe calls for green onions, cheese, and chopped ham, but the sky is the limit! Have some fun with your flavors, adding in up to 1 tablespoon of add-ins per cup.

VEGGIES Fresh, finely chopped herbs, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, caramelized onions, spinach, or even broccoli would all taste great!

MEAT Load these egg bites up with bacon crumbles, breakfast sausage, leftover sandwich meat, or even Italian sausage! How about leftover taco meat?

CHEESE So many different cheeses would taste delicious! Mozza, Monterey Jack, Gruyere, basically any cheese you have on hand!

Making these egg bites in the Instant Pot is so easy, and they’re great for breakfast all week long!

  1. Mix together egg mixture (per recipe below) and pour evenly into well greased silicone molds.
  2. Place add-ins into egg mixture and cover mold tightly with lid or tin foil; place on trivet.
  3. Pour water into the Instant Pot liner and lower trivet with the mold into the Instant Pot.
  4. Put the lid on, pressure cook with high pressure for 8 minutes. Turn Instant Pot off and let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes.
  5. Pull trivet & mold out of Instant Pot, unwrap, & gently pop egg bites out of mold onto a plate.

What to Serve Egg Bites With

These Egg Bites taste amazing all by themselves, but if you’re feeding a crowd they taste great served alongside hashbrown breakfast casserole and some rainbow fruit kabobs! Or, serve with bacon and avocado toast with mimosas for brunch!

For a breakfast on the go, add a green smoothie or strawberry banana smoothie. Maybe a banana breakfast cookie as a treat to finish it off!

Instructions

  • In a medium liquid measuring cup, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
  • Grease a silicone 7 egg bite mold with non stick spray and divide egg mixture between cups.
  • Divide ham, cheese, and green onion between cups - no need to stir! They will sink down.
  • Place cover on mold or wrap tightly with tin foil. Place mold on trivet.
  • Pour water (1.5 cups for an 8 quart) into the Instant Pot liner and lower the trivet with the mold into the Instant Pot.
  • Put the lid on, turn the valve to sealing, and select Manual or Pressure Cook, high pressure for 8 minutes. It will take 5-10 minutes to come to pressure and begin counting down.
  • Once the cook time is up, turn the Instant Pot off and let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before opening the valve to release remaining pressure.
  • Pull trivet and mold out of Instant Pot, unwrap, and gently pop egg bites out of mold onto a plate. They will be hot!
  • As they cool they may deflate slightly, but they will still be delicious.
