Menu Inspiration

I love Starbucks Egg Bites and so was looking for a way to make something similar at home. I found a recipe that called for cottage cheese and cream cheese, both of which regularly come up on the Flashfood App; that makes these a very affordable breakfast or snack! I find that they freeze and reheat very well.

I’ve tried this recipe with spinach, peppers, kale, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese and proscuitto in various combinations. You can definitely make these without an Instant Pot but I like to use two egg bite trays stacked in my instant pot for a yield of 14, which is a double-batch. They don’t last long in my house!
