Instructions Checklist
  • Add 1 cup water to a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Place a steaming rack in the bottom of the pot.

  • Combine eggs, Gruyere cheese, and cottage cheese in a blender; process until smooth. Add spinach, roasted red pepper, and green onion to the blender. Pulse to combine. Divide mixture evenly amongst the indentations of a silicone egg bites mold. Tightly cover with aluminum foil and place onto the rack inside the Instant Pot®.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select Steam function according to manufacturer's instructions. Make sure vent is set to sealing. Set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 5 to 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Remove silicone mold from the pot and allow egg bites to cool about 5 minutes before serving.

Since I refuse to spend any more money on the expensive egg bites from that famous coffee shop, I wanted a “make ‘em at home” recipe. This recipe was perfect. The instructions were clear and easy to follow AND the results were delicious! The only change I made was to add a bit of salt and pepper to the egg mixture. This simple and versatile recipe is a keeper. I plan to create lots of eggs bites using different types of cheeses and add-ins. Thanks for sharing! I’ll definitely be making these again and again.
