These egg bites are similar in texture to sous vide eggs without the need for a sous vide! They are packed with protein, delectably cheesy, and can even hold your favorite veggies. They are light, fluffy, and super satisfying.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes plus 10 minutes to pressurize, 5 minutes NPR
Total Time: 28 minutes
Servings: 7


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 1/2 oz brie or other soft cheese such as Boursin
  • 1/2 cup diced mix-ins such as spinach, cooked bacon or other meat, or raw or cooked vegetables
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • InstantPot or other electric pressure cooker
  • Silicone egg molds (one for a single batch, two for a double batch)
  • Parchment paper or silicone circle


  1. Blend the eggs and soft cheeses: combine the eggs and cheeses in a blender and mix until smooth; 30 seconds
  2. Add the mix-in ingredients (shredded cheese, meat, vegetables) and stir lightly with a fork; do not blend
  3. Fill the molds evenly; there should be enough batter to fill them approximately 80%.
  4. Prepare the pressure cooker by adding 1 cup of water to the pot and place the egg mold on a trivet or steaming rack in the pot.
  5. Cover the top of the egg mold with a silicone lid or piece of parchment paper to avoid getting condensation divots in the egg bites.
  6. Cook on LOW PRESSURE for 8 minutes for 1-tray (single batch) or 11 minutes for 2-trays (double batch).
  7. Allow for NPR (natural pressure release) for 5 minutes, then finish with a QR (quick release).
  8. Use hot mitts to remove the egg rack from the pressure cooker and let cool for 2 minutes before removing the eggs from the mold.
  9. Serve warm or place in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
