Hey everyone, are you tired of boring breakfasts on the go? Do you crave a quick and protein-packed option to fuel your mornings? Well, look no further than these amazing copycat Starbucks egg bites!

These little bites are not only delicious but also super easy to make. Plus, they’re perfect for meal prepping – whip up a batch on Sunday night and enjoy a healthy, grab-and-go breakfast all week long!

What makes these egg bites so good? It’s all about the secret ingredients: cottage cheese and Gruyere cheese! The cottage cheese adds a smooth texture and a touch of creaminess, while the Gruyere brings a burst of nutty flavor that will have you hooked.

Here’s the best part: this recipe is totally customizable! Don’t like bacon? Swap it out for sausage, ham, or even some chopped veggies. Feeling adventurous? Try adding sauteed peppers and onions, or experiment with different types of cheese. Get creative and make these bites your own!

Now, onto the recipe itself. I promise it’s ridiculously easy – even easier than scrambling eggs!

Ingredients:

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup cottage cheese (full-fat is best for texture)
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1 ½ cups shredded Gruyere cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • 4 slices cooked and chopped bacon (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C) and place a rack in the center. On the rack below, add an empty baking sheet filled with water to create a steamy environment. This will help the egg bites cook evenly.
  2. Grease a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a blender, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper. Blend for about 15-20 seconds, until smooth and frothy. Be careful not to over-blend, or your egg bites might get fluffy and fall apart.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the greased muffin tin, filling each cup about two-thirds full.
  5. Sprinkle the chopped bacon and shredded cheese evenly over the egg mixture.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the centers of the egg bites are set.
  7. Let the egg bites cool slightly before removing them from the pan.

Tips:

  • Want a richer texture? Substitute the cottage cheese with 5 ounces of cream cheese.
  • Feel free to experiment with different cheeses! Cheddar, pepper jack, Swiss, or Monterey Jack would all be delicious options.
  • Add some chopped veggies like onions, peppers, or mushrooms for extra flavor and texture.
  • These egg bites store well in the refrigerator for up to a week. Simply reheat in the microwave for a quick and satisfying breakfast.

So ditch the boring breakfast routine and give these homemade egg bites a try! With their ease of preparation, endless customization options, and delicious flavor, they’re sure to become a new favorite.
