Egg Bites are becoming a really popular breakfast idea -- but they're really expensive. A chain coffee shop makes a version that is $5 for two. And a popular egg brand sells a version you can heat up at home, and that's $6 for 4. Making them at home is so much more cost effective. Plus, you can make six from one silicone baking mold -- so you're getting even more than you would from that coffee shop or grocery store product. And with this version, you can customize them to fit your taste buds or your diet (or lack of diet, whatever works).
Bacon And Cheese Egg Bites Recipe
Add your seasonings. This is a great place to use the FinaMill. Stir until combined.
Take a silicone baking mold and set it on top of a cookie sheet. Make sure one of the ends of the molds lies on the edge of the cookie sheet to keep it flat. Divide the mixture between the six cavities in the mold. Bake for 30 minutes.
The egg cups will rise above the pan as they cook but will quickly deflate after the baking mold is removed from the oven.
Let them cool slightly on a wire rack before serving. Bacon And Cheese Egg Bites: Frequently Asked Questions Can you use packaged cheese? Any time you have a recipe that requires cheese to melt, shredding your own block of cheese is the way to go.See, packaged pre-shredded cheese has preservatives in it that keep it from clumping together in the bag. But, those same preservatives prevent it from melting really well.So, we always recommend shredding your own cheese. If you only have pre-shredded cheese, that’s fine, but you’ll want to make sure you use a tightly packed (not a loose packed) 2 oz. when making these. Do you have to make these in a baking mold? The silicone baking mold we use for these makes them so incredibly easy. You don’t need to prepare it in any way. It doesn’t have to be buttered because it’s non-stick as is. So you just pour the egg mixture in and the egg bites pop out when they’re done.And no egg is left behind, so clean up is so incredibly easy.If you don’t have this silicone baking mold, I highly recommend you purchase one. You can use it in this recipe and you can use it to make hot chocolate bombs or tartufo as well.If you don’t want to buy a mold, you can use a muffin pan. Personally, I don’t recommend it because you need grease the muffin pan and then there’s still a chance of the egg getting stuck in the pan, resulting in a lot of messy clean up for you. Can you make a version of Vegan Egg Bites? As long as you use plant based products, like Just Egg for the eggs, plant based cheese, and nut milk, you can make a vegan version of these. Just keep in mind that vegan products may cook a little differently, so you may have to adjust your cooking time. How do you store leftover Egg Bites? One of the best things about these Egg Bites is that you can make a bunch at once and eat them for breakfast over the week.To store them, put the cooled Egg Bites in an air tight container in the fridge. They’ll stay fresh for up to a week. How do you reheat Egg Bites? Put an egg bite on a plate and microwave it on high for 30 seconds. Flip it so it’s laying on its side, and microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
