Bacon & Gruyere Sous Vide Egg Bites are copycats of Starbucks but might even be BETTER!
I’ve been holding out on you. I received a sous vide circulator for Christmas…last year. I haven’t had a huge amount of time to play around with it besides the occasional steak and these egg bites, but I want to get better at using it this year!
As soon as I had the egg bites at Starbucks, I knew I needed to learn how to make them so they didn’t cost me an arm and a leg. They’re a favorite around my house, and perfect for grabbing in the morning to bring in your breakfast or lunch.
This recipe makes six, and is easy to double if you are used to eating two at a time, as long as you have the space in your cooking container. I adapted a few different recipes I tried to come up with these ratios. The result is soft, puffy eggs with a nice salt from the bacon.
For information about how to start using a Sous Vide circulator, you can read more about it here. And if you’re ready to take the plunge, you can look into getting a Joule, like I have, here, or the other popular choice, Anova brand (affiliate links).
Local Spotlight: PCF bacon, as always. And eggs from the farmers market!
