Sous vide eggs are taking over our breakfast orders. If you’ve been to Starbucks recently, you may have noticed their adorable sous vide egg bites. I certainly have noticed them. And, I kinda order them whenever I come across a Starbucks. I looove their bacon and gruyere flavor combo and it really got me thinking.
Maybe I should make my own version. See, we went to our friends house for dinner and they made sous vide tri tip and it was amazing. I immediately went home and bought one thinking that if nothing else, I’ll be using it A LOT with my lack of kitchen during our home renovations.
Welp, friends, today is the day. I busted out my sous vide and made these super cute roasted red pepper and onion egg bites.
Can I tell you this? They are unbelievably silky smooth and creamy. Like whoa. I was not expecting them to be so luscious. I love that they are the perfect recipe to meal prep because you don’t need an oven.
I’m going to be honest, I thought it was one of those gimmicky gadgets and kinda wrote it off when I first heard of it. But then! I tasted actual deliciousness and knew I needed a sous vide in my kitchen.
You don’t need a stove. Literally you set a pot to the side and let it do its thang for an hour. If you’re something who loves to meal prep, or just someone who loves to have easy grab and go breakfasts so you don’t have to think in the morning, this is for you!!
Ways to Customize these Egg Bites
I’m loading these egg bites up with roasted red peppers and onions, but go for the other Starbucks bacon and gruyere combo! Try some broccoli and cheddar. The sous vide egg bites world is your oyster. I topped mine with some hot sauce and fresh herbs. But, add some salsa, some fresh avocado, whatever your heart desires!
