Time to cook these healthy egg bites!
Step 1 – Prep
Slice the roasted red peppers into small pieces. Crumble the feta into small crumbles unless you purchased pre crumbled feta. Prepare your Instant Pot or regular pot by pouring 1 cup of water into it. Finally, spray your silicone egg molds with a spray of oil.
Step 2 – Blend
Add eggs, cottage cheese, and salt to a blender and blend until a smooth mixture remains.
Step 3 – Assemble
Pour the egg batter into the silicone egg mold cups until they are 3/4 of the way full. Add some peppers and feta to each egg bite and mix in gently with a toothpick.
Step 4 – Steam
If you are using an Instant Pot to cook your egg bites, lower the egg mold on the metal rack into the Instant Pot. Close the pot and set the lid to sealing. Set the Instant Pot to Steam for 10 minutes.
The Instant Pot will come to pressure and then steam for 10 minutes. Once the timer goes off, manually release the pressure. Remove the egg bites from the Instant Pot and allow them to cool before enjoying.
If you are using the stovetop method, lower the egg mold on the metal rack into the pot. Turn on the heat to high. Once the water at the bottom of the pot is bubbling, reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pot.
Allow the egg bites to steam for 10 minutes then turn off the heat and remove them from the pot. Allow the egg bites to cool slightly before eating.
Can I use just egg whites?
If you want to make these roasted red pepper and feta egg bites with just egg whites, you can swap the 5 full eggs for 1 cup of egg whites.
