Want a quick and easy protein breakfast or snack? The other day I made egg bites in my instant pot. It was super easy. You can make them in 4 oz. mason jars or use egg bites silicone molds. The best part is, you can make several ahead and put them in your refrigerator. When you are ready for an egg bite, pop it in your microwave for 25 to 30 seconds and voila! It’s ready to eat. Caution, it will be quite hot when you first take it out of the microwave.
You can be creative when making egg bites. Add whatever ingredients sound good to you or whatever you happen to have in your refrigerator at the time. Tomatoes, green onions, avocado or diced onions are a few suggestions. I used baby bella mushrooms, cheese, and baby spinach in mine.
Watch the video below for step by step instructions on how to make these delicious little protein filled egg bites.
six to seven extra large eggs (about one egg per container)
4 oz baby bella mushrooms
3 to 4 tbsp of shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
salt & pepper to taste
Put one cup of hot water into your instant pot and turn it on steam for 10 minutes.
Spray jars with olive oil cooking spray.
Pour egg mixture into your jars (fill about 3/4 full)
Close jars. (Not to tight)
Place jars on top of trivet or egg stand in the instant pot.
Place lid on and make sure your sealing valve is set to sealed.
Allow pot to come to pressure and steam for 10 minutes.
Then allow it to do a 10 minute self release.
Do a quick release after the self release.
Place hot jars on a cooling rack.
Carefully remove lids right away.
Allow egg bites to cool a little.
Run butter knife around the inside of the jar to loosen it.
