Pro-tip: When removing the egg bites from the oven, you want them to have no jiggle left. That’s when you will know that the egg is cooked through. You can also use a toothpick test to check.

Variations / Options / Add-ins

  • CHEESE: You could pretty much use any type of cheese you prefer in your egg bites. Other great options are cheddar, Colby Jack, mozzarella, provolone, gouda, or pepper jack for a bit of spice! Just make sure whichever cheese you use is finely shredded so that it melts properly.
  • VEGGIES: Feel free to take out veggies or add others in, such as onions or mushrooms. You could also use fresh peppers (any color) in place of the fire roasted red peppers.
  • EGG: If you are trying to keep things a bit healthier, you could make your egg bites with egg whites and forego the yolks. You could also make the recipe half and half, using the whole egg for some and just the egg whites for others.
  • PROTEIN: You could easily add a bit more protein to your egg bites. Try sprinkling in some bacon bits or adding in chopped chicken, turkey, ham, or ground sausage.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to store Egg Bites

Egg bites are the perfect quick morning meal when stored in the fridge. Keep them in an airtight container or tightly sealed Ziploc bag. When you’re ready for breakfast simply heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds! You can also freeze your egg bites. Store in a Ziploc freezer bag. When reheating frozen egg bites place them in the microwave for 1 ½ – 2 minutes.

Why do I need a water bath when cooking my egg bites?

The water bath that’s mentioned here is simply used to help the egg bites cook more evenly. It helps to add moisture to the oven, which will also keep the egg bites from cracking.This is a common tactic used when cooking delicate items such as cheesecake, or in this case eggs!
