Poached Egg Bites

Let’s talk breakfast! It really IS the most important meal of the day. Skipping breakfast can cause you to be too hungry by lunch time, which can lead to overeating at lunch, and it can have negative metabolic consequences. We want our bodies to know that we’re giving it proper fuel through the day so that it can run as efficiently as possible! These poached egg bites are packed with protein to keep you full until lunch and preparing them ahead of time will save you time in the mornings so you don’t have to bother with anything other than heating these up. 

Confession time: I am a Starbucks addict. Really. Give me iced coffee, and warm tea, and sous vide egg bites, oh my! But let’s be real…. Starbucks is expensive and the lines can be way too long, so it’s best saved for an occasional treat instead of an every morning ritual. But I love the egg bites, so I decided to try to recreate them at home. While this recipe is a little more complicated than standard egg muffins or egg casserole, it’s totally worth it if you’re as crazy about egg bites as I am.

For this recipe, you will need these little egg poaching silicon cups. I got them off of Amazon for less than $10.  You could also use small glass bowls, or if you have an Insta-Pot, I think they have a contraption for it that will allow you to make these easily as well.

Silicon Egg Poaching Cups

I made six egg bites and still had leftover mixture, so I put it in an air tight container and used it to make an omelet the next morning. You could just clean the silicon molds and make more egg bites, but I was feeling a little lazy after making these and decided that six would be enough. You can store them in the fridge for the week or freeze them for later dates.

  8. Turn the heat down if necessary to keep the water at a simmer, not a boil. Cover the pan and let steam/poach for about 20-25 minutes or until the egg bites are firm.

  9. Turn off the heat and let cool. Remove the silicon molds with tongs and place on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess water.
