Why You’ll Love These

  • Meal prepping made easy:  Rustle up a batch of copycat Starbucks egg bites, and you will be able to enjoy them for breakfast all week. Easy meal prep like this certainly beats waiting in line at Starbucks.
  • Tasty:  There’s a reason the egg bites at Starbucks are so popular, and that’s because they taste so good. You can add any flavour, so you can add anything if you’re in the mood for bacon and Gruyere egg bites or green onions with Monterey Jack cheese and bell peppers.
  • A healthy breakfast:  A quick breakfast on the go or snack doesn’t have to mean an unhealthy one. These copycat egg bites are high in protein and low in carbs, so you’ll feel full until lunchtime. I like to pair mine with a fruit cup.

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.

Reheat:  25 seconds in the microwave or 10 minutes in a 350°F oven works perfectly.

Egg Bite Breakfast on the Go 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 flavour will be a little richer, but that’s not a bad thing.

    These look so delicious and I am definitely making these for a grab and crazy work week breakfast! I’ve never seen these Egg Bites. Are these regular muffin size or mini-muffin size? I don’t have an egg mold…. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome recipes! lovelovelove!

      Thanks for the comments! I made them as regular muffins in a silicon mold, but you could make mini ones or even jumbo ones (the cooking time will be slightly different if you change the size). You can use a silicon or metal mold. If you don’t have one, maybe use a loaf pan to make an egg “loaf” and cut into slices to serve!
