These Sous Vide Egg Bites Are a Game-Changer!
Sous vide has become a more commonly mentioned method of cooking. You may have noticed that one of the most prevalent cafes on the planet touts sous vide egg bites. They are protein-packed and easy to grab and go for breakfast or snacking during your busy life.
Well, if you have a Nomiku at home, you don’t need to spend your hard-earned cash on those packaged egg bites, we have a recipe to make them with any of your favorite flavors and seasonings.
Make 6 4-ounce containers and enjoy these bites throughout the week.
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup of your favorite grated cheese (we used mozzarella)
- 1/4 c neufchatel cheese (or 3 tablespoons of heavy cream)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp smoky paprika
- *Optional — We love adding leftover cooked veggies such as sweet peppers, broccoli, asparagus, or sweet potatoes. You can also add chopped ham, bacon or other proteins you have.
- Set your Nomiku to 172F/77.8C and let the water get to temperature while you prep.
- Either in a blender add all of the non-meat ingredients for about a minute.
- Grease glass jars (such as the Ball or Mason jars used for canning).
- Pour the mixture into greased 4-ounce glass jars.
- If you have meat to add, sprinkle or place on the top (but make sure the meat is already cooked).
- Attach lids and close to fingertip tightness (this means using only your fingertips to screw on the ring). We do fingertip tightness because, if they are too tight, the air pressure within the jars will not be able to release and the jars will shatter in the water.
- Cook for 75 minutes in the Nomiku water bath.
- Remove with tongs and run a toothpick or knife around the edge of the egg bite to loosen from the jar. Eat hot or store in the refrigerator for grab and go snacks and breakfast.
