What Makes This Recipe So Good

  • They’re incredibly quick and easy to make! Simply blend the eggs, then add in your veggies before transferring to the mold and cooking them in the Instant Pot for just 8 minutes. You’ll have a protein-packed, healthy breakfast in no time!
  • It’s actually delicious! Over are the days where good-for-you wasn’t always synonymous with being tasty. Perfectly seasoned then finished off with sharp cheddar cheese, these healthy egg bites won’t let your taste buds down!
  • They’re the best, most handy breakfast. I love incorporating these Instant Pot egg bites into my meal prep for the week. Knowing I have a nutritious and flavorful breakfast waiting for me in the fridge gets me out of bed in the morning!

Key Ingredients

Eggs – I used whole eggs for this recipe, though feel free to use just egg whites instead. Also, the blender does most of the mixing for us, so no need to whisk these eggs by hand!

Cottage Cheese – Cottage cheese adds an extra savory bite to the egg bites, while also making them super light and fluffy. If you’re not a cottage cheese fan like me, don’t worry, since you’ll hardly taste it in this recipe. Instead, the additional cheese will simply add more flavor and a delightful texture.

Chef’s Tips

  • Switch up the veggies in this recipe however you’d like! Diced tomatoes, some fresh chopped herbs, or even a dash of your favorite spice blend would taste delicious in these Instant Pot egg bites. Get creative and use up whatever fresh produce you have on-hand!
  • Don’t forget to reduce the heat on your Instant Pot to manual low pressure. My Instant Pot defaults to high pressure, which would overcook the egg bites. Therefore, be careful to select low pressure instead.
  • For leftover egg bites, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. To reheat the bites, place them on a plate in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Either cut through the egg bites with a fork, or simply eat with your hands!

    1. We haven’t tried freezing and reheating these, so we can’t say for sure. Be sure to let us know if you try it! 😊

  1. I made this recipe this morning. I have never made egg bites so I am not sure of what the texture inside is supposed to be. Inside they were really soft. Is this supposed to be how they are or are they supposed to be really firm? Just curious if I needed more than 8 minutes and maybe not release the pressure manually but let it slowly do it itself?

    1. Hi, Tanya! A soft inside texture is normal. You could totally cook them for a little bit longer if you want them to be more firm! Hope this helps! 🙂

  2. Is the nutritional information based on 1 bite or 2? Asking as the recipe indicates 3 servings so I’m assuming a serving is 2 bites since recipe appears to make 6. Thank you for clarification. Can’t wait to try this!

    1. Hi, KK! It was based on a serving of 2 egg bites originally, but we’ve just updated it to be a little more clear. Now it reflects the information for 1 egg bite, rather than 1 serving. I hope that helps!
