Don’t you just love it when your fridge is full of leftovers after a big family dinner? Me neither. That’s why I created this easy egg bites recipe.

I don’t blame you if you’re a fan of the Starbucks sous vide egg bites. They’re delicious. 

The slow cooking, water bath method gives them a lovely, creamy texture. However, few home cooks have easy access to a sous vide machine. 

Better than Starbucks

I also thought this could be a great way to use up leftover simple ingredients.

So I started working on a copycat Starbucks egg bites recipe.

It’s an easy recipe that adapts well to different flavor combinations. And it’s a perfect breakfast to make on the weekends and store in a large freezer bag for busy mornings during the week.

It’s also a great make-ahead camping recipe. Just warm the egg bites up in a cast iron skillet over the campfire.

  1. Tried these egg bites with a cup of bacon, and they were amazing! The smoky flavor blended perfectly with the eggs. Then I added extra jalapenos for a spicy kick, and it was spot on! So easy and delish.

  2. I recently tried out this recipe and it was a game-changer for my breakfast routine! Super easy to follow and I love how I could customize it. I put cheese in mine. The final result? Fluffy, melt-in-your mouth egg bites.

  3. My husband came home with 2 dozen eggs because “they were on sale.” I’m so glad to have found your recipe! These egg bites came out great and even my picky son loved them. Thank you!

  4. oh wow, now I can save the eggs that I have in the fridge! I’m curious if it’ll taste the same with different vegetables like kale!
    Tasty treat in every bite and now can skip dropping by at Starbucks!
