Why You’ll Love These Copycat Starbucks Egg-Bites

These egg bites are made with healthy, clean ingredients and are also incredibly simple to make. No special equipment is necessary, and the texture will be just as good (if not better) than your favorite Starbucks version, thanks to my sous-vide hack 😉.

Did I mention only 3 eggs are required to make 9 bites, each bite contains 5 grams of protein, and they are completely customizable!? This recipe is a must-try!

How to Prepare Copycat Starbucks Egg-Bites

⏲️ Start by preheating the oven to 325F.

🧀 Now, blend the eggs, salt, cottage cheese, and Gruyère cheese for 20-30 seconds.

⭐ Place a silicone muffin tin on a baking sheet and spray with non-stick spray.

🥚 Add the egg mixture 1/2 way in each muffin cup.

💦 Carefully position the baking dish with the muffin pan on a lower oven rack. Fill the baking tray with boiling water up to halfway.

♨️ Bake without opening the oven for at least 25 minutes or up to 30 minutes. Monitor closely.

🍳 Allow them to rest for 5 minutes before enjoying.

🧊 Store in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months. Defrost in the fridge and reheat in the microwave if frozen. Enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip🥚

The oven must be preheated, and the water must be boiling hot. Do not open the oven at all for at least 20 minutes so you can allow the eggs to steam and get creamy. My oven is super slow. Therefore, my egg bites took 30 minutes.

Variations and Substitutions

These delicious egg bites are so customizable, so don’t forget to let me know in the comments which variations you try.

  1. Add some breakfast meat like ham or 🥓 bacon to your egg bites.
  2. Instead of bell peppers, try another combination of vegetables like tomatoes and basil or kale and mushrooms.
  3. Feel free to leave out the cheese or use a dairy-free equivalent instead.
  4. Give your egg bites a spicy kick 🌶️ with some red pepper flakes and Monterey jack cheese.
  5. Feel free to add in herbs like dill, rosemary, or thyme to customize how your egg bites are flavored.
  6. If you love eggs, you’ll love my egg bake recipes, like my delicious Cheddar Egg Bake.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
