Blend the main ingredients:  Blend the egg whites with the cottage cheese, garlic, salt, and some of the shredded cheese.
Add the vegetables:  Add the spinach and some of the bell pepper and pulse briefly.
Prepare the egg mold:  Lightly grease an egg mold, silicon mold or muffin cups.
Divide the mixture between the molds:  Add the reserved spinach, peppers and cheese to the greased mold or muffin tin.
Add the egg mixture:  Divide the prepared egg mixture on top of the veggies and cheese.
Prepare a water bath:  Add a couple of inches of warm water to a baking dish and then put the egg mold in there. The purpose of the egg bath is to cook the egg bites evenly and keep them moist and tender.
Cook the egg bites:  Cover the whole thing with foil and bake for an hour or until done, then garnish with green onions.

Substitutions and Variations

It’s completely up to you which flavours to add to egg bite recipes. Pretty much any kind of vegetable will work. You can add meat as well if you want, as long as it’s cooked. Consider chicken, bacon or even smoked tofu cubes. Shredded gruyere cheese, parmesan cheese, swiss cheese, ricotta cheese or cheddar cheese are also great options. You really can get creative with the homemade version of egg bites.

Maybe pack them for lunch along with a copycat Starbucks oat bar.

Egg Bite FAQs

How can I tell when the egg bites are done?

I’m sure you know how rubbery, tough and unpleasant overcooked egg is, and that’s why you need to know how to tell when these egg bites are done. Ovens do vary in performance, but with mine, it takes exactly an hour to get that perfect result. They’re done as soon as the egg is set, and the centers aren’t runny anymore!

Can I use the whole egg or just the egg whites?

You certainly can if you prefer to use the whole egg instead of just egg whites. The flavor will be a little richer, but that’s not a bad thing.
