Bacon Gruyere Egg BitesDecember 31, 2018
So I think I speak for most of us when I say I’m obsessed with the Starbuck Sous-Vide Bacon Egg Bites…and I could honestly eat them everyday!!! So we recreated them…and I must say they’re darn good…same flavour, size and fluffy texture. Instead of using our sous-vide we actually prefer to cook them in our egg-poacher…way easier and less time. We did try them in the sous-vide a few times but we felt they took too long to cook (hours) and were annoying using mason jars in the water, so we found an easier alternative with the egg-poacher which you can find everywhere!
- 4 eggs
- 4 strips of bacon cooked
- 4 tbsp of Cottage Cheese
- ¼ cup Monterey Jack Cheese
- ¼ cup Gruyere Cheese
- ¼ tsp salt
Add the eggs, cottage cheese, both cheeses and salt to a blender and liquefy. You should have a nice frothy creamy mixture. Start the egg poacher on medium heat. Add a small amount of butter or oil to the egg poacher cups. We also add a few small strips of bacon to each cup. Add the egg mixture on top of the bacon. This recipe will make 8 egg bites, but we typically double it since they stay fresh and refrigerate well and Nigel also eats about 6 for breakfast. Cook for 12-15 minutes until cooked throughout.
