Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites are ALL the rage in the Instant Pot Community? Why? Because they are SO good, and the Starbucks ones ain’t cheap. These are permanently replacing oven baked egg muffins. They don’t hold a candle to the texture and deliciousness of these!

There are recipes all over the web, but I was most inspired by this one at Foodie and Wine blog. I am watching my fat calories these days so I lightened up her recipe, and also increased the serving size to six. I only have a six quart Instant Pot and my ramekins were a bit over-sized so I had to cook in two batches. No big deal to me, I had plenty of other prep to do while these cooked! If you use pint size mason jars or 6 oz ramekins, you may be able to cook in one batch. Many people also recommend these Silicone Baby Food Molds as an alternative. I don’t have these but I have friends who certify that they work.

Feel free to embellish on the recipe. Use ham or sausage instead of bacon, or all three! Add spinach or herbs. Use feta or goat cheese. Make this recipe your own. That’s what I did!

I hope you enjoy! Here’s a video showing the process:
