My family has had a weekly tradition of getting Starbucks sous vide egg bites ever since my kids started swim class on Sundays last year. (By the way, see our ideas for keto Starbucks drinks here.) The bites are relatively low carb at 9 grams carbs per serving, but could be much lower considering there are no veggies involved. So when my good friend explained to me how to make sous video egg bites at home, I decided to try my hand at an Instant Pot sous video egg bites recipe!
With just 4 ingredients and being mostly hands-off, these copycat Starbucks egg bites are ready in less than 20 minutes. They’re an easy way to meal prep your healthy breakfast quickly.
Plus, they are easy to customize with your favorite flavors. I’ll show you how to make sous vide egg bites in the Instant Pot with my personal favorite – bacon and gruyere cheese!Disclaimer: Starbucks may be a registered trademark.

What Are Instant Pot Sous Vide Egg Bites?
These sous vide egg bites are small egg souffles made in the Instant Pot! The Starbucks egg bites made these mini egg bites super popular, and they turned out to be a great low carb breakfast idea on-the-go.
Real sous vide is a cooking method that involves cooking a sealed pouch of food in a water bath, at low temperature, for an extended period of time. But since it requires special equipment, I opted to make these in my Instant Pot instead, like my friend recommended.
Can You Make Sous Vide Egg Bites In The Instant Pot?
Yes, you can make sous vide egg bites in the Instant Pot!
And it’s a great way to make them. Your egg bites sous vide Instant Pot recipe will turn out perfectly each and every time, without needing to buy extra equipment.
Mine might not be as pretty as Starbucks sous vide egg bites, but they are just as delicious, with fewer carbs.
How To Make Sous Vide Egg Bites In The Instant Pot
This Starbucks sous vide egg bites recipe is an easy way to prep a healthy, keto breakfast that’s perfectly portable and super delicious.
Here’s how to make sous vide egg bites in the Instant Pot:
- Grease the egg bite mold. Use butter or olive oil spray to ensure that the bites pop out easily when they are done cooking.
- Lay down bacon. Stack bacon slices and cut them in half. Then place two pieces of bacon side-by-side into the bottom of the mold, curving them up the sides.
- Blend the Starbucks egg bites sous vide mixture. Blend eggs, cheese, cream, water, sea salt, and pepper, until frothy.
- Pour egg mixture into the molds, filling them to the top. Cover tightly with foil.
- Cook the sous vide egg bites in the Instant Pot. Pour water into the bottom of the pressure cooker and place the trivet inside. Carefully place the egg bite mold onto trivet. Close the lid, set valve to seal, then cook on high pressure for 9 minutes. Wait 5 minutes for natural release, then flip to quick release for any remaining pressure. The egg bites will be done when you open the lid!
- Cool the Instant Pot sous vide egg bites. Lift trivet out of pressure cooker with oven mitts – be careful, it’s very hot! Let them cool for 5 minutes (they will shrink a bit making them easier to remove), then flip the mold over a plate and pop egg bites out.
Flavor Variations For Egg Bites
My favorite flavor for Starbucks egg bites is bacon gruyere, so that’s what I made! But you can easily customize these to your liking. Here are some ideas for add-ins:
- Vegetables – Try adding broccoli, cauliflower, or bell peppers.
IMPORTANT: Cook the vegetables first. The easiest way would be to cook them under pressure right in the Instant Pot for just 1 minute (so fast!). Chop up what you need for the bites and save the rest for another use. You’ll want to stir the veggies into the egg mixture after blending (or just place them into the molds before adding the egg mixture), but avoid actually blending them.
- Cheese – Swap the gruyere with mozzarella, cheddar, pepper jack.
- Meat – Replace the bacon with sausage or diced ham instead.
If you have your own favorite flavor, let me know how you like them in the comments!
