These bacon and gruyere sous vide egg bites are the perfect copycat version of the Starbucks egg bites we all love, but made in the comfort of your own home!


  • 12 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Gruyere Cheese - shredded
  • 1/4 Cup Cottage Cheese
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2-3/4 Pound Bacon - cooked and crumbled


  1. Fill a large pot with water and place it in your immersion circulator. Turn the Sous Vide on to 172 degrees and press start to allow the water to start warming.
  2. Cook the bacon completely. Let cool and crumble into bits.
  3. In a large blender, place eggs, gruyere, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper. Blend on high for 60 seconds.
  4. Spray 9 - 4-ounce mason jars with cooking spray on the inside.
  5. Pour an even amount of the egg mixture into each jar, being careful not to get any on the lip of the jar. Sprinkle each top with bacon bits.
  6. Wipe the lip of each jar clean and seal each lid to just fingertip tightness.
  7. Place the sealed jars into the warmed water and let cook for 1 hour.
  8. Once finished, remove from the water bath and let cool on the counter for 10-20 minutes. Chill and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.


To Eat/Reheat

  1. I enjoy these cold straight out of the fridge and out of the mason jar.
  2. These can also be microwaved. Remove the lid and microwave in the jar for 1 minute to warm and enjoy straight from the jar.
  3. A third method is to broil to warm. Scrape around the inside of the jar with a knife to release from the side and turn upside down onto a baking tray and lift. The egg bites should come right out. Place tray in a toaster oven set to broil/toast for 3-5 minutes until warmed through. Enjoy immediately! if you do not have a toaster oven, just place it in a regular oven with the top rack close at the highest placement.
