Optional Flavor Boosting Step - Brown Bacon: This optional step will add some depth of caramelized smoky aroma & flavor to the egg bites. You can either brown the bacon in Instant Pot or in the oven.Oven Method:-Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.-Place baking sheet on the middle rack of a preheated 400°F oven.-Bake bacon until crispy and golden-brown. Set a timer for roughly 18 - 20 minutes.Instant Pot Method:-Add bacon in Instant Pot, then heat up Instant Pot using "Sauté More" function (no need to add oil as bacon has a lot of fat).-Allow the bacon to crisp and brown on both sides (~7 - 9 mins).-Remove bacon from Instant Pot, then place them on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat.
Prepare Egg Bites Mixture: While the bacon is browning in Instant Pot, break 4 large eggs into a large measuring cup. Mix and combine with ¼ tsp fine salt. Add ⅛ tsp ground black pepper, ¼ tsp (1.25ml) regular soy sauce, ¼ cup (60g) cottage cheese, ¼ cup (48g) freshly grated cheddar cheese, and ¼ cup (48g) freshly grated mozzarella to the egg mixture. Mix well.*Pro Tip: If you like more smooth, custard-like textured egg bites, use an immersion blender to blend the egg bites mixture.
Add Browned Bacon and Green Onions: Your bacon should be browned at this point. Absorb the excess fat and roughly chop them into bacon bits. Clean and dry the Instant Pot inner pot. Add bacon bits and green onions to the egg mixture, then mix until just combined.
Pressure Cook Egg Bites: Pour egg mixture into the silicone egg bites molds. Lightly wrap & cover the top of the egg bites mold with aluminum foil. Add 1 cup (250ml) cold water in Instant Pot. Place trivet with egg bites mold in Instant Pot. Close lid, then turn Venting Knob to Sealing position. Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 9 minutes + 6 minutes Natural Release. After 6 minutes, release the remaining pressure by turning the Venting Knob to Venting position. Carefully open the lid.
Check Doneness & Serve: Unwrap the egg bite molds. Let the egg bites cool a bit, then pop them out. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions and freshly grated cheese. Serve these yummy egg bites & enjoy~ 🙂
Double the Recipe: You can make a double batch by layering one silicone egg bite mold over another silicone mold. Just double all the ingredients.Aluminum Foil: Wrapping the egg bites mold with foil keeps the water condensation from dropping onto the egg bites in Instant Pot.Egg Bites Not Fully Cooked: If the egg bites are still somewhat wet (not fully cooked) after pressure cooking, place them back in the Instant Pot immediately, then close the lid to stream for another few minutes.Rate Amy + Jacky's Recipe: If you've tried our recipe, rate the recipe in the Comments section.
