I’m not one to quickly jump on fads or crazes so when everyone got all excited about the whole “how to make Starbucks egg bites in the Instant Pot” thing, I just took a wait and see position.

And now now that I’ve made these amazing Instant Pot egg bites, I can wholeheartedly tell you, the light, fluffy, creamy, full of flavor bites of deliciousness are worth all the publicity they get!
How to Make Pressure Cooker Egg Bites
Blend eggs, cottage cheese, gruyere cheese, salt and pepper in a blender for 30 seconds. Spray a silicone egg tray that will fit into the pressure cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each egg cup 3/4 full with egg mixture. Pour water into Instant Pot inner pot then place the trivet inside. Lower full egg bite tray onto the trivet. Cover the egg tray with foil or a lid. Secure the pressure cooker lid and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes. Let naturally release for 5 minutes then release any remaining pressure. Remove egg bite tray and invert egg bites onto a plate. Top with toppings of choice such as crisp, crumbled bacon and chives.
How Long Do Egg Bites Last in the Fridge?
One of my favorite things about making a tray of Pressure Cooker egg bites is that they can be made at the beginning of the week then eaten for breakfast for the rest of the week. These Instant Pot egg bites will last 5-7 days in your fridge and will provide a hearty, healthy, and easy breakfast all week long!
What Toppings Can I Put In Pressure Cooker Egg Bites?
Many people choose to mix the toppings directly into the egg mixture as the eggs are blended. This works perfectly well, but my preference is to keep the mixture basic and then top the cooked egg bites with various toppings. Some of my favorite egg bite toppings are:
- Crumbled, cooked bacon
- Sliced chives
- Minced jalapenos
- Minced ham
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- Roasted red peppers
