Ever since I was introduced to sous vide cooking in 2016, it’s literally changed my life! I make short ribs, steaks and even sliders in the sous vide.

In 2017, when Starbucks introduced Sous Vide Egg Bites, all of the sudden, the entire world started to learn about sous vide cooking technology. If you’re not familiar, I’m so excited to fill you in today!

Sous vide is a cooking method where food is vacuum sealed in a plastic bag or placed in a glass jar, then cooked in a precise temperature controlled water bath at a low temperature for an extended time. Depending on the recipe, that time could be 1 hour or 48 hours.

Cooking sous vide is SO EASY! You literally just seal your food with seasonings or spices, pop it in the water bath, then just let the sous vide do it’s thing. This is one of the reasons that I quickly fell in love with my sous vide. It made weeknight dinners so easy and everything turns out delicious!

When looking for a sous vide to purchase, you have a couple of options. There’s a sous vide/slow cooker appliance that is the same size and shape of a slow cooker, which you will see pictured in this recipe.

There’s also a sous vide stick with a clip that attaches to the side of any large pot or heat-safe bowl or container. Anova also makes a sous vide stick that’s WiFi enabled, which I’ve used since 2016.

Either type of sous vide will work for this recipe. If using a sous vide stick, you’ll want to attach it to a large bottomed pot or a dutch oven, so that the mason jars can sit firmly in the pot.

Step by step instructions

  • Heat a sous vide water bath to 172°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl with a pour spout, whisk eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper together.
  • Add the ingredients of your choice, like crumbled or shredded cheese or diced meats and veggies, based on the flavor combination you’d like in your egg bites. (See suggestions below.)
  • Pour the egg mixture into six 4 oz mason jars.
    • Note: One of these sous vide egg bites is approximately 4 oz in size, which is almost exactly the same size as two Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites.
  • Screw the lids on the mason jars just tight enough so they’re closed, but do not tighten any further than that.
  • Place the mason jars in the sous vide machine or in a large pot or dutch oven with a sous vide stick attached.
  • Set the sous vide cooking time to 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, use tongs to remove the egg bites from the sous vide water bath.
  • Remove the lids from the mason jars and either eat the egg bites directly from the jar or remove the egg bites from the jar and serve on a plate.
    • Quick tip! To easily remove the egg bites from the jars, slide a butter knife around the edge of the egg bite in the jar to loosen it before removing.

Flavor combinations

All of the ingredient measurements below are for the entire recipe. If you want to make 3 of one flavor and 3 of another flavor, cut the ingredient measurements below in half.

You can also double the recipe and make 3 or 4 different flavor combinations! Since these egg bites are perfect for meal prepping, I actually recommend doubling or tripling the recipe if you’re making the bites for more than one person.

  • ½ cup red bell pepper + ½ cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • ½ cup diced ham + ½ cup diced green bell peppers + ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup chopped, cooked bacon + ½ cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • ½ cup diced green chilies + ½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese + 1 tsp hot sauce
  • ¼ cup julienned sun dried tomatoes + ¼ cup chopped spinach + ½ cup feta cheese crumbles

How to reheat them

Sous Vide Egg Bites can easily be reheated in the oven or microwave.

To reheat the egg bites in the oven, turn the broiler on to low. Remove the egg bites from the mason jars (if you have not already done so) and place them on a baking sheet under the broiler for 1-2 minutes.

To reheat the egg bites in the microwave, place them on a microwave safe plate and cook for 30-60 seconds.

Are they keto?

Yes, sous vide egg bites are perfect for those on the keto diet. Each egg bite contains just 1 carbohydrate. Adding the various ingredients for each flavor combination will only increase each egg bite by a maximum of 1 carbohydrate.

If you’re looking for an easy low carb breakfast, this sous vide egg bites recipe is perfect for you!

Can you freeze them?

Yes, in fact if you’re ever purchased Sous Vide Egg Bites at Starbucks, these were in fact frozen and reheated.

These homemade egg bites can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months. To reheat them, place them under the broiler for 2-3 minutes or reheat in the microwave for 2 minutes.
