Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with water and place a sous vide immersion cooker into the water. Set temperature to 170 degrees F (77 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • Drain oil from tomatoes, reserving 1/2 teaspoon. Chop tomatoes finely and place in a small bowl. Add reserved oil, vinegar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and set aside. Combine eggs, cottage cheese, goat cheese, heavy cream, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a blender; mix until thoroughly blended, 15 to 20 seconds.

  • Spray mason jars with cooking spray. Divide tomato mixture among the jars. Top with egg mixture. Screw on the lids until just barely tightened. Do not over-tighten as the jars can burst in the hot water.

  • Submerge mason jars into the water bath and set timer for 55 minutes.

  • Remove jars to a cooling rack. Run a knife along the outer edge of each egg bite and invert onto a plate, or eat directly from the jar. Let any remaining jars cool, then refrigerate for up to 1 week.

Cook's Notes:

To reheat, warm egg bites in the microwave at low power (30%) for about 1 minute, or in a sous vide bath for 10 to 15 minutes at 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).

You can use half-and-half in place of the heavy cream.

Amazing! Been making sous vide egg bites for a while now and these are our new favorite. The only thing I left out was the garlic powder 'cuz we're out, but I don't think we missed it. They were the perfect texture and the taste is out of this world. Thank you for the fabulous recipe! Read More

This method was perfect, these came out with exactly the texture I was looking for. I liked the flavor combination, but will change it up by adding others in the future. My sun dried tomatoes were not the highest quality, so I imagine these would be even better with higher quality ingredients. Thanks for this recipe! Read More
