Eggs-We used large eggs for this recipe. The size of the egg does matter. The larger the egg, the more full your egg cups will be.
Olive oil– The olive oil in this recipe is used to pre-cook the vegetables. Feel free to use any oil or fat that you would like.
White cheddar cheese– Cheddar cheese adds cheesy goodness to these egg bites!
Add-ins: we kept things super simple with garlic, onion, and sautéed spinach.
Ingredient Substitutions and Variations
While we haven’t tested this, we are sure that subbing egg white for full eggs will work just fine. You can use any shredded cheese your heart desires and we recommend Colby jack, mozzarella, or Mexican blend cheddar.
We’ve also made these with different add-in ingredient combinations. Below we’re sharing some ideas!

What are the ingredients in Starbucks egg bites?
The most famous Starbucks egg bite is the bacon gruyere egg bite! They are made in a sous vide, not an Instant Pot. They are also very tasty!
How do I remove egg bites from the silicon egg mold?
To remove the egg bites from the mold, gently press the bottom of the egg mold with your fingers. The egg bite should pop out easily. If the egg bite resists, take a knife and use the knife to loosen the edges of each egg bite from the silicone mold.
Mason Jar Instructions
Yes! Don’t have a silicone egg mold? Have no fear, you can make these egg bites in small glass jars as well. We tested this recipe using 7 4-oz. mason jars.
Double the ingredients for the egg bites and make according to the directions in the recipe card.
Then, spray your mason jars generously with nonstick cooking spray.
Fill mason jars as you would the silicone mold, but do 2 teaspoons of veggies and 2 teaspoons of cheese. Fill each jar about halfway with egg and mix to combine.
Place the trivet inside your Instant Pot and place mason jars on top of the trivet (make sure to leave them uncovered).
Seal Instant Pot and pressure cook the same way, for 10 minutes on high with a quick release. Your egg bites may come out a little moist, but that is because of the condensation!
The egg bites can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
Can you freeze Instant Pot Egg Bites?
To freeze the egg bites, place them in a single layer in a freezer-safe container or bag. When you are ready to eat them, thaw them overnight in the refrigerator or in the microwave on the defrost setting.
To thaw the egg bites remove them from the freezer and let them thaw completely. Microwave them for 30-second increments until they are warm.
The egg bites are great for breakfast, lunch, or a snack. You can serve them on their own with a dash of hot sauce or with a side of fruit, yogurt, or toast. Here are a few other serving suggestions:
Serve them on a bagel with your favorite toppings.
First, add all of the eggs to a container with a pour spout. Whisk the eggs together until there are no chunks. Set aside.
Turn on your Instant Pot’s saute feature. Then add olive oil.
When the olive oil is fragrant, add garlic and onion and saute for 2 minutes. Then add chopped spinach and saute until wilted.
Transfer veggies to a different bowl and clean your Instant Pot.
Place your silicone egg bites tray (see Mason Jar directions in the notes section) on a hard surface. Then, add 1 teaspoon of the veggie mixture to each bite. Next, add a heaping teaspoon of shredded cheese and then fill each egg bite about 3/4 of the way full with egg. Use the back of a spoon to mix everything together.
Place the trivet on the bottom of your Instant Pot and add in 1 cup of water. Then, place the silicone egg bites mold on top of the trivet and seal your Instant Pot closed.
Turn the valve to seal and turn the Instant Pot to manual > high pressure > and set the timer to 10 minutes. It will take around 10 minutes for the Instant Pot to start counting down, but eventually, it will start counting down from 10 minutes.
Once the timer goes off, quick release the Instant Pot to let out the pressure. Take the lid off and carefully remove the mold.
Your eggs might look a bit lopsided or look like they expanded out of their mold, but as they sit, they will release air and go back down.
