I finally tried y’all’s favorite coffee shop’s egg bites recently, and let me just say that I was unimpressed. I ordered the Bacon and Gruyere egg bites and while the flavor was great, the texture was unbearable. So I made them better. Why will you like these more than Seattle’s finest? Because they have the same great flavor you love, with a texture that is so much more satisfying (even when you reheat them.)
I was excited to learn that gruyere is actually a lactose intolerant-friendly cheese which makes both me and my stomach happy. Now I know what you’re thinking. “Don’t you have to use milk in this recipe to keep the eggs fluffy?” And the answer is YES! Thankfully, lactose free ultra-filtered milk exists and my favorite is Good Moo’d. It’s literally the only milk I use in recipes because it tastes rich & creamy and has 25% less sugar than the leading lactose free milk.
How to Make Egg Bites
Egg bites have to be one of the easiest recipes to make. You literally just mix together your eggs, fillings, and Good Moo’d lactose free ultra-filtered whole milk. Then pour it into a muffin pan and bake it. Badabing badaboom!
While I’m using bacon and gruyere in this recipe, egg bites can be made with any ingredients you have in your kitchen. I love to make them when I have food I need to get rid of or new combinations I want to test out. Here are some other combos I love:
- Ham + Cheddar
- Mushroom + Swiss
- Prosciutto + Tomato
- Asparagus + Salmon
- Garlic + Mozzarella
- Peppers + Onions
How to Store Egg Bites
I’m really bad about skipping breakfast because I wake up and my mind starts racing about the million things I need to do that day. But when I meal prep these egg bites I find that I’m more likely to eat before noon. To store them, I just throw them in a stasher bag and put them in the door of my fridge (so I don’t forget they’re there). Then in the mornings, I take a couple of them out and heat them in the microwave for 1-1:30 minutes.
- 12 eggs
- ¼ cup Good Moo’d Lactose free ultra-filtered whole milk
- 1 cup shredded Gruyere
- 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Scramble your eggs and Good Moo’d lactose-free ultra-filtered milk together until well combined.
- Stir in gruyere cheese
- Stir in bacon (make sure it is cooled first so it doesn't cook the eggs)
- Season with a bit of salt and pepper then mix. I use about 2 healthy pinches of salt and quite a bit of pepper.
- Pour into greased muffin pan.
- Bake at 415 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until done.
Let them cool before removing from the pan and enjoy!
