We went wild for these egg bits when they were introduced onto the US menu of Starbucks way back when, they’ve become a firm staple in the US and are now part of the new Autumn line up in the UK. Whats not to like, easy to prepare, ideal for batch cooking, a great on the go high protein breakfast item. These ones are perfect for a little more indulgence at a weekend, with melting cheese and bacon.
- Preheat your water bath to 77.8⁰C
- Place the eggs into a blender along with the two cheeses and the salt. Blend until fully combined and until the mixture reaches a smooth consistency
- Take your halved slices of bacon and place one piece into each jar. Evenly distribute the egg mixture into the jars, on top of the bacon pieces
- Put on the lids and fasten securely, but not too tightly!
- Transfer the jars to your preheated water bath and allow to cook sous vide for one hour
- If eating immediately after cooking use a butter knife to gently ease the bites out of the jars. To add a little colour you can sear the bites with a blow torch
- Alternatively, submerge the unopened jars into an ice bath before transferring to a fridge for up to two weeks.
Chef’s tip –
Whether you’ve lots of mouths to feed or you just can’t get enough of them, sous vide egg bites are perfect for cooking in large batches. Simply double or treble the ingredients until you have the quantity you need.
