Sous Vide Egg Bites Recipe: Better Than Starbucks

Sous Vide Egg Bites Recipe Better Than Starbucks

These sous vide egg bites make for the perfect easy breakfast or protein-packed snack. There are a lot of different ways you can make this copycat version of your favorite Starbucks treat, but this recipe is a great way to get a delicious, easy meal in while using a few simple ingredients.

I’ll never forget when Starbucks launched their Sous Vide Egg Bites a few years back.

It was just after the holidays, I was trying to eat healthier, and lo and behold, these magical gruyère sous vide egg bites appeared out of nowhere.

They were delicious, they were fluffy, they were just what I needed.

It was a wonderful option to have when needing food quickly and on the go, as they were also relatively healthy compared to other fast food options.

However, the cost of these delicious egg bites adds up after a bit.

Plus, it’s not realistic to go to Starbucks, or any other fast food restaurant, daily (even if you’re collecting tons of extra stars from all of your purchases).

If I wanted to keep indulging in these savory breakfast bites, I had to learn how to make them myself.

I’ve been testing this recipe out for a few months now, and I’ve found three things to be true.

  1. It’s a lot easier than you would think to make these at home
  2. The egg bites themselves are relatively high in protein
  3. They’re a fantastic meal prep option, and a great meal to take on the go

There’s really not a bad thing about them.

And to be honest?

I find that my egg bites taste better than Starbucks.

Or maybe I’m just used to the way I do them at this point.

Regardless, everyone should be making these.

*Author’s Note: I’ve been looking into a lot of other Sous Vide egg bite recipes lately, and a lot of what I’ve found on the internet is more difficult than it needs to be.

I’ve seen recipes for Instant Pot sous vide egg bites, recipes that require a special silicone mold, a water bath for your ingredients, and other things like that.

This recipe is as easy as you can get, and only requires a muffin pan, blender, and an oven or air fryer. No silicone egg bite mold or sous vide machine needed here!

What You’ll Need!


Eggs: Can’t make egg bites without eggs! Any kind will do with this recipe.

Greek Yogurt: I’ve seen people sub this for cottage cheese and whipped feta, too. But in my experience, these egg bites are the most fluffy when Greek yogurt is used.

Toppings: Use any topping you’d like! I’ve used sauteed peppers, onions, spinach, bacon, roasted red peppers—anything and everything goes when it comes to these delicious egg bites.

Seasonings: For these egg bites, I use salt, pepper, paprika, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder when not adding in onions.

Cheese: The best part of these egg bites is the cheese! You can try your hand at copying Starbucks and use gruyere, but in my opinion, I like cheddar or feta way more in these. They add a more robust flavor to these egg bites, and make them so incredibly irresistible.


Blender: This is to make sure all of the ingredients are evenly incorporated. You can also use a food processor if you’d prefer, it’s another great option to use when making these sous vide bites!

Muffin Tin: Again, you can use the fancy egg bite molds if you have them on hand, but I always prefer using a greased muffin tin.

Oven: If you don’t feel like turning on your oven, you can always make these in the air fryer or toaster oven if your muffin tin fits!

Sous Vide Egg


Preheat the oven to 400°.

In a blender or food processor, toss in your eggs, Greek yogurt, and seasonings. Beat until smooth.

Grease your muffin tin, and gently pour everything into the cups. I like to fill everything halfway and add more egg mixture as needed.

In the egg mixture goes all of your toppings. I like to use uncooked spinach, bacon, and sundried tomatoes.

Top everything off with cheese, and pop them into the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops are fluffy and golden brown.

Let rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.

Sous Vide Egg Bites FAQs:

Sous Vide Egg Bites Recipe - Sous Vide Egg Bites FAQs

Q: How long are these good in the refrigerator?

A: These last up to four days in the refrigerator.

Q: How many egg bites does this recipe yield?

A: I usually get around 10-12 egg bites using this recipe. Filling the muffin cups halfway with the mixture and using more toppings is the best way to maximize your ingredients, but it’s okay if some muffin tins remain empty!

Q: Can I freeze these?

A: You sure can! In fact, I recommend doubling or even tripling the recipe if you have a bunch of free time. This is the best breakfast to eat if you’re in a pinch.

Q: How can I reheat these before serving them?

A: In the microwave, cover with a paper towel. Heat for 30 seconds if refrigerated, and 90 seconds if thawing from frozen.

​Q: What are some other toppings that I could add with these?

A: There are so many options when it comes to homemade egg bites. You can add green onions to these, cheddar cheese, hot sauce, gruyere cheese, turkey bacon, roasted red peppers—the possibilities are endless when it comes to this Starbucks egg bites copycat recipe.

Q: Can I take out the yolk and just use egg whites?

A: Absolutely. However, if you’re going this route, I recommend using 8-10 eggs instead of the recommended 5.

Q: Can I prep the mixture ahead of time?

A: You sure can! After the blender, pour the mixture into an airtight container or spread it out over a few mason jars, and refrigerate for 5 or so days. When you’re ready to bake, just pour into the muffin tin or silicone egg mold, and you’ll be good to go!

What To Serve With Sous Vide Egg Bites:

Carbs: I love eating carbs with my breakfast. I don’t know about you, but I find that when I have the best combination of carbs and protein, I stay focused and full throughout my day.

Something like a toasted whole grain English muffin would be delicious with these, rather than a bagel or any other refined carbohydrate.

If you were looking for a bit more of a natural option for your carbohydrate, I recommend eating some fruit with these.

Fruits such as apples are a wonderful source of carbs and will leave you feeling satiated and energized throughout your day.

Drink: Every single morning, I enjoy my breakfast with coffee. I highly recommend you do the same. 

If you’re not a coffee lover like I am, something like a smoothie or tea would work perfectly with these.
