Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients except the bacon to a blender. Blend until smooth (about 15 seconds).
  2. Coat the inside of silicone egg mold with nonstick spray.
  3. Evenly distribute the bacon into the egg molds. Pour egg mixture evenly over bacon and cover loosely with foil.
  4. Pour one cup of water in the Instant Pot and insert the steam rack.
  5. Carefully lower the egg mold onto the steam rack, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  6. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 10 minutes.
  7. When the time is up, quick-release the pressure. Remove the egg mold and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Unmold the egg bites and enjoy immediately or refrigerate up to one week.
Recipe Notes

*The MANUAL and PRESSURE COOK buttons are interchangeable.

    These came out better than I thought they would! I used mostly a parm,mozzarella, asiago mix and a bit of mixed cheddar. Plus I added diced tomatoes. I have the 7 egg mold so I reset the servings for 7, wanted to make sure I’d have enough mixture. I definitely did with all the bacon and tomatoes inside so I was able to make a second set. The adjusted measurements totally worked. SOOOO good!

    Love egg bites and all the variations that can be made. Amazon is my place to purchase the molds!

    I changed the recipe to “Ham, Gouda, and Spinach Egg Bites”. Delicious. Although I increased the servings to 7, since my mold has 7 spaces, but I ended up with a lot more than I expected; 14 egg bites and an omelet. I sauteed the spinach and ham in 1T butter while mixing other ingredients, then added last in the mold. Maybe the butter is the reason they came out of the mold so easily, even without nonstick spray. Dont fill mold cavities all the way up, they will grow a little.

    So delicious and easy to make! Definitely let it sit for a few minutes after its out of the pot – otherwise it doesn’t hold form very well 🙂

    Yummy! And lots of protein with these ingredients. Will make again. Easy to adjust depending on stuff in my fridge.

    Easy and delicuous! I would suggest you use half of the salt in the recipe or a lower sodium brand of bacon.

    Really easy to make and a great go to on a busy morning. Love switching our cheeses, adding ham or sausage and fresh herbs. If you’re onion lovers like us chopped green or spanish onion is great too!

    Since we didn’t have the mold insert, we used silicone muffin cups on the rack. Worked great, just need to be careful when arranging on the rack.

    Turned out great! Did make a double mold batch, increasing to six eggs, which yields 3 cups of egg batter for 14 molds. The official instant pot molds W/ lids work very well. The bottom tier did not over cook, no spill overs. Prepared the filling & let it settle overnight in the fridge in the blender. I then centered the add ins of bacon & spinach in the molds. Allowed a cool down period in the molds to keep shape. Yummy!
