Why pay $5 for Starbuck's egg bites when you can make your own AND control the ingredients that go into them at a fraction of the cost. These creamy, little gems pack a powerful protein snack and reheat like a charm. Not only that, they take just a little over 15 minutes to make. The IP is the perfect appliance to sous vide these wonderful breakfast/brunch babies. Some other ingredients you might consider are spinach and feta, smoked salmon, gruyere and chives, green chile and cheddar, or a combination of red bell peppers and mushrooms. Any combination of meats and cheeses will work!
