Egg Bites like Starbucks

These are super yummy, close to what Starbucks egg bites taste like and really great for meal prep (they freeze well).  I have tried a number of recipes and compiled together to get this one that works well for me.  The steam bath while they cook is key.


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • salt and pepper to your liking
  • cooked bacon crumbled
  • red pepper, diced small
  • cheese (whatever kind you like, gruyere, cheddar, monterrey jack)
  1. cook bacon (I like to bake center cut bacon in 400 F oven for 15-20 min) sometimes the night before so this is done
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F and spray muffin tin with oil spray
  3. Set a tea pot of water to boil
  4. Add eggs, cottage cheese, salt and pepper to a blender and blend until smooth
  5. Sprinkle bacon bits in the bottom of muffin tin (just so it lightly covers the bottom cup), sprinkle red pepper and cheese over the bacon
  6. Pour egg mixture over the bacon/red pepper/cheese
  7. I add a little extra cheese on top and lightly mix with a spoon.  The muffin cups should be about 3/4 full
  8. Carefully prepare steam bath by adding boiling water to a baking sheet at the bottom rack of oven
  9. Place the muffin tin on the middle or top rack
  10. Bake for 25 minutes
  11. YUM!! Enjoy 🙂


I package up and put in freezer.  They warm well in the microwave.
