Bacon & Gruyère Egg Bites

Tested & Perfected Recipes

If you like the sous vide egg bites from Starbucks, you’ll love this homemade version — no sous vide equipment required!

I came up with this recipe at the request of my mother, who loves the Bacon & Gruyère Sous Vide Egg Bites from Starbucks. “Sous vide” is a French technique that refers to the process of vacuum-sealing food and then cooking it gently in a water bath to a precise temperature. It gives the egg bites a distinct silky and custardy texture. The good news is that you don’t need a sous vide machine to make Starbucks-style egg bites at home. By cooking the egg bites in a muffin tin at a low temperature and placing a pan of water in the oven to create a steamy environment, you can achieve a similar result.

To mimic the flavor of the Starbucks version, I used the ingredients listed on the Starbucks website as a guide. The formula is about equal parts cottage cheese and eggs, plus shredded cheese, bacon, and hot sauce. You can whip up these bites in a blender in no time, and they make a convenient, rich, high-protein breakfast or snack that keeps in the fridge for up to 3 days or freezes well for up to 2 months.

If you like the sous vide egg bites from Starbucks, you’ll love this homemade version — no sous vide equipment required!

Servings: 12 egg bites
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 35 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1-1/3 cups (4% milkfat) cottage cheese
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded Gruyère (or a blend of Gruyère and Cheddar or Monterey Jack)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce

Instructions

  1. Bring a kettle of water to a boil. Set one oven rack in the middle position and another in the lowest position. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  2. Place a 9x13-inch metal or ceramic baking dish on the lower rack and fill it halfway with the boiling water from the kettle. This will create steam in the oven, which will help the egg bites to cook gently and attain a custardy texture.
  3. Spray a nonstick muffin pan generously with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. In a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon, stirring frequently, until crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  5. In a blender, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, Gruyère, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Blend until completely smooth, 30 to 45 seconds.
  6. Pour the egg mixture evenly into the prepared muffin pan, filling each well about three-quarters full. Divide the bacon evenly over the egg bites. Using a spoon or your finger, press some of the bacon into the batter so it is not all floating on top. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes on the middle rack, until the eggs are set.
  7. Remove the egg bites from the oven and let rest in the pan for about 5 minutes. Use a small spoon to loosen the egg bites from the edges of the pan and carefully lift them out onto a plate. Serve warm.
  8. Make-Ahead/Freezer-Friendly Instructions: Once cool, the egg bites can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave at 50% power for 60 to 90 seconds. The egg bites can also be frozen in an airtight container for up to 2 months. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight and reheat using the microwave.

Reviews & Comments

  • Really good. Really rich. The texture was so smooth and silky. I used silicone cupcake liners greased with a little oil and they removed easily. I did have to bake mine almost 30 minutes to set. I will definitely make these again but will probably sub out the bacon as suggested by other reviewers to make it a little lighter 🙂

  • I was so bummed with these. I’m sure it was my error because I’ve made over 25 of Jen’s recipes with fantastic results – I trust this site! Mine were underdone even after popping them back in the oven twice- probably an extra 8-10 mins. Looked perfect on top and but remained custardy/wet on bottom. I did use 1% cottage cheese and a little extra gruyere so maybe that was the issue? Maybe fill less full? Oh well.

    • Hi Janette, Sorry you had a problem with these! These actually should be a bit more wet/custardy on the bottom, but if you felt they were still too wet after that extra time in the oven, I would guess that maybe the reduced-fat cottage cheese was to blame. (I haven’t tried them with 1% cottage cheese, but that’s the only thing I can think of that may have caused an issue.)

  • My family loved these, although the ones I made did not come out of the pan quite as pristine as the ones shown in the picture. Very easy to make. The bacon, which took the most time to prep, could be made ahead of time and brought to room temperature before baking. I didn’t expect to find shredded Gruyère, and I was right (which I usually am, more often than not). I asked the supermarket employee how much she thought I should buy for 1.25 cups of shredded cheese, and she gave me a six ounce package that she said should be a bit more than enough. It was significantly more than enough, which was fine. We tend to like stronger cheeses (one of our daughter’s favorites cheeses when she was two years old was Stilton, which amazes me to this day, 20 years later), so next time I will try either a cave aged Gruyère or a mixture, perhaps shredded goat cheese, which I found at our local Whole Foods.

  • These came out perfect. So easy, too. I didn’t have enough bacon so half of the batch was without it, but still really good! Also, I think other things would work with this recipe, like red pepper, a little bit of onion, etc.

  • Don’t usually do this, but had to substitute diced ham for bacon, used a Mexican blend of cheeses, no hot sauce, and blended in my food processor. They were fabulous. Loved the texture and can’t wait to have the leftovers tomorrow morning. Excellent recipe and will definitely make again-with bacon, gruyere, etc. 😊 Thanks for sharing, Jenn!

  • I didn’t care for it.. maybe because I haven’t eaten bacon in ages lol. But I didn’t like the custard feeling with these eggs. .. I should have cut the recipe in half.. They did turn out like they are suppose to .. I won’t make it again and will probably throw them out.

  • Oh my, these are wonderful! I only have silicone muffin pans and they worked fine. I sent hubbs out for gruyere, and he came back with fontina, so I used half fontina and half parmesan. Also, our grocery only had the 2 percent cottage cheese but this didn’t seem to matter! Added two more slices of bacon (for hubbs) and followed remainder of recipe exactly. My result was a wonderful, buttery, custardy breakfast! Thanks Jenn for another winner!

  • I made these yesterday and they turned out great!
    I used packaged crumbled real bacon and since the store didn’t have cottage cheese, but had ricotta (months ago it was the reverse), I used ricotta and without gruyere, I mixed some cheddar and monteray jack with jalapeño cheese. It stretches 6 eggs and is very satisfying. Definitely will make this again.

  • Sadly, this recipe was a flop for me. I was not familiar with the term sous vide and feel the recipe narrative could benefit from some clarification. The recipe states “to bake 20-23 minutes” ;however, I feel it should state that the muffin pan should be placed “on the middle rack that is above the rack with the baking dish filled with water.” The instructions were not clear to me and I placed the muffin tin in the baking sheet with water – made a bath. a disaster.

  • Hey Jenn,
    I was just wondering if you’ve ever made these without the bacon. I was thinking that maybe I could try adding some feta and sautéed spinach, mushroom, and shallot since I’m vegetarian, but I’m worried it’ll up the water content too much. Any suggestions? Thanks

    • Hi Juliana, Yes, I’ve made these without bacon. And think that you could make them with the ingredients you’ve mentioned. I would just sauté all the veggies first and make sure to remove any liquid from them before incorporating into the egg mixture so they’re not too watery. Please LMK how they turn out if you try them!

  • What else would I do on a wintry morning when I am snowed in but turn to Once Upon a Chef’s emailed recipe & cook away! We enjoy those Starbucks sous vide egg bites, too and I was thrilled to see you offer a recipe to make them in the oven. I went a wee bit creative with my ingredients … turkey bacon in some & sautéed shallots & red peppers in the others. This recipe is simple to assemble and the end result is delicious! Peter was a bit skeptical when I mentioned it included cottage cheese, but he gobbled down the finished product!

  • As expected, this recipe is a success; you really have made cooking fun and I forward your emails to my friends all the time. Being on Weight Watchers makes these a challenge, however, as according to WW one of this is 9 (!) points, and I only get to spend 23 a day. I did use 2% cottage cheese and am going to try to figure out the real number of points to allocate to each egg bite and it they taste wonderful. Thanks for another great recipe! Sigrid, Napa, CA

    • For WW try using turkey bacon, nonfat cottage cheese, using half the amount and the other half use almond milk. Instead of this cheese, use a smaller amount ofreduced fat Sharp cheddar. This is how I make mine, and they are delicious and many less points.

      As stated above, I make them in my instant pot. I think they are smaller than the muffin tin. I use 4 eggs and get 7 egg bites. I use proportionally less of all the other ingredients.

      I hope this helps.

  • I make these in my Instant Pot. I use the sous vede moulds that they sell on Amazon and other places. If you want to try it, I cook them at low pressure for 8 minutes, allow. pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes and that is it. You need to add 1 cup of water to your pot first and put the mould on a trivit that comes with the pot. They come out perfectly and taste delicious.
    We love them at my house.

  • What can you substitute for cottage cheese?

    • Hi Barbara, Cream cheese would be a good substitute; you would need about 11 ounces.

    • How about whole milk ricotta as a cheese sub?
      I know these will be perfect and welcome.

      • Hi Joyce, I haven’t tried these with ricotta, but I worry it would give the egg bites a slightly grainy texture.

  • This sounds amazing, but my family doesn’t handle spicy foods well. What could I substitute for hot sauce to still give flavor without heat? Mild salsa?

    • Hi Agnes, It’s totally fine to just omit or reduce the hot sauce, but mild salsa is a fine option.

      • I have ricotta on hand. Would that work in place of cc?

        • Hi Cindy, I think ricotta would give these a grainy texture — sorry!

  • Instead of spraying the muffin pan, can I use muffin liners/baking cups?

    • Hi Christine, I worry the eggs will stick to the liners.
