Instant Pot Instructions

  1. Cook bacon on the stovetop until fully cooked, but not too crispy
  2. Blend eggs, milk, cream cheese and salt in a high speed blender until thoroughly combined – be sure the cream cheese is fully mixed in
  3. Take a metal trivet (mine came with the egg bite mold) and place the silicone egg bite mold on the trivet
  4. Spray the egg bite mold with oil so that the bites do not stick
  5. Place a few pieces of chopped bacon and some shredded gruyere cheese into each egg cup
  6. Pour the egg mixture evenly into all 7 egg cups on top of the bacon and cheese
  7. Pour 1 cup of water into the instant pot and slowly lower the filled egg bites into the instant pot on the trivet
  8. Close the Instant Pot lid and set the release valve to sealing
  9. Set the Instant Pot on steam for 10 minutes
  10. The Instant Pot will come to pressure and then steam for 10 minutes 
  11. Once this is done immediately manually release the pressure and remove the lid
  12. Allow the egg bites to cool down for at least 5 minutes before remoting from the Instant Pot
  13. Once the egg bites have cooled, remove them from the molds and enjoy!

Notes

This recipe does not work well with coconut milk or coconut cream. The egg bites will be greasy and too soft.
