Sous vide bacon and cheddar egg bites are the perfect on the go breakfast or healthy afternoon snack. Cooked perfectly with the sous vide, you will fall in love with these mini egg bites!
I love sous vide egg bites! They are one of my most favorite things to make with the sous vide. Bacon and cheddar is a classic combo and one that no one gets tired of.
Justin and I always need either a quick breakfast or a healthy afternoon snack on hand at all times. Otherwise, the hangry monster set in, and that is just not good.
Having these egg bites on hand throughout the week is the perfect solution for the 2 pm munchies or early mornings out the door for Justin. They are great to make on Sunday or Monday and have stocked in the fridge all week.

How to Make Sous Vide Bacon and Cheddar Egg Bites
- Fill a large pot with water and place it in your Sous Vide. Turn the Sous Vide on to 172 degrees and press start to allow the water to start warming.
- Cook the bacon completely. Let cool and crumble into bits.
- In a large blender, place eggs, cheddar, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper. Blend on high for 60 seconds.
- Spray 6 - 4-ounce mason jars with cooking spray on the inside.
- Once the egg mixture is finished blending, pour an even amount into each jar. Sprinkle each top with bacon bits.
- Seal each lid to just fingertip tightness.

How Long Do Sous Vide Egg Bites Last?
Keep them stored in the fridge for up to a week. I love to make these on Sunday or Monday and have them on hand for a quick breakfast or snack throughout the week.
What Is A Sous Vide Egg Bite?
A piece of heaven!
But think if you mixed together all the ingredients for an omelet together and cooked it a different way other than in the skillet. By using the sous vide to cook these eggs it gives it a smooth and creamy custard-like texture that is out of this world!
How to Make Sous Vide Egg Bites in the Oven
If you don't have a sous vide, you can still make these egg bites at home.
I filled reusable baking cups in a muffin tin and baked them at 350 for 30-35 minutes. They will come out tall and fluffy but then deflate when cooled. They will not have the same texture as using the sous vide but it will work if you need it too (and tastes delish).
How to Make Bacon and Cheddar Egg Bites in Instant Pot with Sous Vide
If you have a newer Instant Pot, it probably has the sous-vide function on it. Which is amazing!
You follow the same steps as you would using a regular immersion circulator.
Place your mason jars inside and fill the Instant Pot with water, making sure to fully cover the mason jars. Close the lid. Set temperature to 173 degrees for 1 hour.
Once finish depressurize and remove the jars. Eat and enjoy!
