I’ve been seeing these egg bites frequent the internet quite a lot lately. They’re delicious, they’re portable, and they’re now keto friendly! That’s right, these little breakfast morsels are inspired by Starbucks‘ Sous Vide Egg Bites.

The biggest problem I had with the original recipe is that you need a sous vide machine. While they’re an amazing piece of equipment to have around the house – most people don’t. And, they’re over $130 for a decent one! Plus, the original recipe takes over an hour to make. I’m definitely not a morning person, so I don’t have time to deal with that.

Being a huge fan of steamed eggs and frittata muffins, these really intrigued me. I thought it’d be a great idea to make the egg bites in my poaching pan – combining the velvet texture of steamed egg with the convenience of having something quick to grab-and-go with.

These things are seriously fantastic. What I like best about them is the fact that you can make them ahead. Just cook them for slightly less time so that they’re still a little under-cooked in the middle. Save and store them for any time in the next few days in the fridge. When you’re ready to make them, just top them with your favorite toppings and throw them under the broiler for a few minutes.

If we’re having people over for brunch, I’ll normally make 16-24 at a time. I’ll place each egg bite on a baking sheet (with some foil or parchment paper) and top them. Leave them in the fridge overnight, and then all I have to do is pop them in the oven the next morning.
