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.

  • I made these this morning and I really liked them a lot I wouldn’t say the consistency was creamy, I did substitute ricotta for the cottage cheese maybe that is why also I prepared them in my food processor- perhaps I should have pulsed longer. Either way they were delicious but not the consistency I was expecting. I cooked for 20mins did I cook them too long?

    • Hi Marina, 20 minutes shouldn’t have been too long. Did you put the baking dish with water in the oven? If so, the only thing I can think of is that perhaps the ricotta made them a bit less creamy.

  • Great recipe, thanks Jenn! I’ve tried to make egg bites before this recipe, and failed. The previous attempt stuck so badly to the muffin pan that I had to pitch the pan and the bites. This unhappy event led to the purchase of my Silpat silicone muffin pan, definitely the silver lining to that fiasco. This recipe yields tender, delicious egg bites, very much like those of the inspiration coffee shop. I used my silicone muffin pan, so I had zero trouble with sticking. This recipe can be tweaked to your hearts desire with regard to cheese choice or filling choice. My family loved it and I will make again.

  • So, I read through the reviews and didn’t see a similar comment, so here it is: I prefer the roasted red pepper egg white bites. I used your recipe & Starbucks ingredient list to formulate a recipe for egg white bites. In the future, perhaps 10-11 egg whites would be better than the 12 I used; I had to cook about 30 minutes with 12. These are pretty darned good. Very similar to Starbucks and a lot less expensive! My husband doesn’t love spicy, so I used about 1/2 tsp Sriracha, but it might could use a little more if you like that.

    1 whole roasted red pepper from jar, dried and finely chopped
    1/4 cup cooked fresh spinach, squeezed dry and finely chopped (started with about 1 cup fresh and microwaved 1 minute)
    2 green onions, finely chopped
    1 cup egg whites (10-11)
    1 1/3 cups cottage cheese
    1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
    1/4 cup feta
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. black pepper
    1/2 tsp. Sriracha sauce

    Followed Jenn’s instructions; poured into well-sprayed regular muffin tins, divided the veggie mix into each. Bake 25-30 min. till eggs are set.

    Thanks, Jenn, for the inspiration and ideas. Love your recipes and got your cookbook for Xmas. 🙂

  • Because I, too, enjoy the Sbucks bites, this recipe seemed a must to try.
    Since I don’t eat red meat, I substituted with chopped and sautéed Baby Bella mushrooms and chopped kale. I used a domestic Gruyere, and on top of each bite I put a pinch of strong cheddar. Regrettably, I have just one oven rack, so I made do with the water bath in a smaller baking dish on the same shelf of the oven. And I used a mini cupcake baking sheet. Those changes were small, and the egg bites turned out so yummy! The hot sauce made them a little more tangy than Sbucks and I liked that. Shall surely make again!

  • Love this recipe! I had been making an egg bites recipe and used my sous vide, but it was such a pain to set everything up. These turned out as good, in less time, and so much easier. Mine also were a little wet. I think it is because 1) I put too much hot water in the pan underneath, and 2) the steaming water was too close to the cooking eggs. I think this caused steam to creep down the sides of the muffin tin even though the egg mixture was cooked. Next time I will have more distance between the steaming water and the eggs. I used low-fat cottage cheese instead of full-fat as I find the Starbuck’s eggs too rich. Thanks, Jen!

  • Easy, delicious recipe! How wonderful to be able to have grab-and-go egg bites to take out of the freezer to bring to work in the morning. My bacon and sharp cheddar cheese were rather salty, so next time I will put either less salt or no salt and then sprinkle on extra if needed. Also, when we cook bacon on the weekend we always freeze whatever is left over, so I was able to grab a few frozen bacon strips and just crumble them in. I also like to keep grated cheese on hand in the fridge; it stores for at least a week if kept in a glass jar and makes creating these little yummy pucks even more simple. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us!

    • Excellent! I used ricotta instead of cottage cheese with perfect results. I suspect the reviewer who said ricotta didn’t produce a custardy texture faulted the ricotta instead of her food processor which will never get a creamy consistency like a blender will. Use a lot of cooking spray to ensure the egg bites come out cleanly. Mine could have used 26-30 minutes as a few were a little too soft in the center. This recipe and technique is wonderful! Thank you!

  • These came out great! Even the texture was like Starbucks egg bites, so this technique of blending all the ingredients well and cooking over water was a winner. I did make some adjustments to the ingredients: I used 6oz of cottage cheese and 6oz of gruyere and those proportions worked well. I also used turkey bacon. I left out the salt (this is already quite high in sodium between the bacon and cheese) and hot sauce but added a pinch of nutmeg. Yum! I don’t know if it’s because I used a silicone muffin pan – I just bought it so I don’t know if it affects baking times?? – but 23 minutes wasn’t nearly enough time. It took more like 32 minutes before the eggs were set. (Also, I didn’t grease the cups, and that wasn’t a disaster but I will do that next time.) These are definitely going in the breakfast rotation. Next time I may try some cheddar – I’ll bet that would be tasty!

I had a little trouble getting each one out of the muffin tin – they weren’t sticking, but are jiggly so I inverted the pan onto the muffin tin lid.

  • These are by far the tastiest mini egg bites I have made. They are light, fluffy and just plain delicious. I read the comments before starting and noted that no one had used 1% milkfat cottage cheese and that was what I had. So thinking of the water content, I put the cottage cheese in a strainer and using a potato masher, squeezed a lot of the water out. It worked perfectly and I think lowered the calorie content. I look forward to changing the bacon to shallots and spinach. I also used silicone cupcake liners without any oil and they slipped right out. YUM! Thank you, Jenn! I have enjoyed all your recipes I have tried.

Since it takes two egg whites to equal one whole egg, I adjusted the recipe accordingly. I wanted the egg bites to have a little of the yellow color, so I used three whole eggs and the six egg whites. The recipe turned out great! The flavor and texture was perfect! Thanks, Jenn.

  • Hi Jenn, what size muffin pan would you use? I have a jumbo one that makes 6 and a regular one for 12. I’m just wondering if I used the bigger one if I needed to bake it longer? Also, with my convection oven, again the temperature? I made crème caramel not so long ago and the oven browned the top of the egg. Thankfully the Brule hid it but maybe I should cover it with foil while baking? I’d like to make this tonight for something different. Thanks!

    • Hi Cathy I’ve only made these in a regular size muffin tin. I think you could make these in the jumbo tin but not sure how long they’ll take so you’ll need to keep a close eye on them. And when using the convection setting, the rule of thumb is to reduce the temp by 25°F. Please LMK how they turn out if you try jumbo versions of these!

      • Hi Jenn, I made these with the jumbo pan but only filled them halfway and they were delicious! I did cover them with tin foil as the convection has browned egg dishes in the past. Took about 23 minutes to cook. One thing I need to ask, they puffed up to the top of the muffin tins and once I took them out of the oven, they deflated. Is that normal? I don’t think I’ll buy the store version again, these were awesome! Thank you

  • Simply divine! This was easy to execute, and that first bite told you it would be a recipe you make often. Only 1 change. I doubled the hot sauce and used our fermented jalapeno hot sauce which gave it a little extra heat. I used a regular muffin tin and just hit it heavy with cooking spray. If you have a small off-set spatula it works great getting them out. Thanks, Jenn. Your recipes are becoming some of our favorites.

  • I used 2% cottage cheese and they turned out fine although they took a little longer to set. I also sprinkled them with a paprika/cumin/coraiander/salt mixture. Very tasty.

  • Made 1/3 of a recipe for the egg bites this morning, as I live by myself. They turned out great. I made them just as the recipe says. My muffin pan has smaller holes so I only baked them for 18 minutes. These would be great at a brunch, with several different flavors. I love the fluffiness, and how they came out of the pan so cleanly, and of course the taste.
    One question, what is the best way to reheat?

    • Hi Roger, Glad to hear you enjoyed them! Reheat in the microwave at 50% power for 60 to 90 seconds.

      • I gave a friend some and told him about your re-heating directions.
        He went us one better. He made grits and placed the egg bites in the grits, which warmed them. He said the combination was delicious.
