What are Egg Bites?

These Starbucks copycat egg bites are the easiest (some would say laziest) way to make perfectly portioned eggs. Mix your eggs and your ‘mix-ins’ (veggies, seasonings), pour them into muffin tins, and bake. Just 20 minutes later, your egg bites are done. Easy peasy!

If you prefer, you can make straightforward Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs or with more time you can make Brioche French Toast Casserole.

Why Make This Recipe

  • It’s fast: They are ready in less than 30 minutes.
  • They’re great for on the go: They are an easy, healthier and portable food options. They’re perfect for lunch boxes and eating on the go and should be a staple of your weekly meal prep.

  • Suitable for many diets – they are suitable for low carb, keto and gluten free diets. Each baked egg bite contains only 1g carbs.

Ingredient Notes

  • Eggs – use large eggs but if not then use 8 medium eggs.
  • Veggies – I prefer to keep these low carb and use quick cook veggies aka bell peppers and spinach. Mushrooms also make a great addition. These are great to use up leftover vegetables.
  • Cheese – I use goat cheese or brie but feel free to use some shredded Mexican cheese instead. You can also add a little bit more cheese to your taste.
  • Milk – Makes these creamy and fluffy. I use whole milk but heavy whipping cream or plant based milks will work too if you’d like to go dairy free.
  • Salt – completes this yummy breakfast recipe.

  1. Hello!

    Would I be able to freeze these? If so, do I just thaw in fridge and bake at same temperature and time?

    Thank you,

    Lindsay S.

  2. Make it even healthier with using just egg whites! I have found frittatas for some reason cook easier and turn out flawless rather than using whole eggs.
