Sous vide egg bites

35C9E4F5-4BF4-4D89-A261-1AEE97E57BF5I don’t know about you but its become a bit of a habit to pull through Starbucks for some of their red pepper egg bites. Seriously, I love them.. and i love the fact that they are somewhat healthy, a quick filling  breakfast or snack. 🙂 But hey at over $4.00 a serving I may just need to try to make some at home.

Honestly, the sous vide thing through me off, I had no idea what that meant. After reading and doing a little research what I found was a little confidence and a ok, you can do this!  Pretty much it means low temperature, long time cooking where food(pan) is placed in a water bath. I actually used mini muffin pans and placed it in a larger pan filled halfway with water. I set oven at 325.

I followed the recipe below but you can add whatever favorites you like to yours. I was actually surprised at how close they came out to the original. I store mine in a container in the refrigerator because we will go through them pretty fast. I always heat them with a paper towel under them to absorb any water. Happy to report this will save us a little money! 🤗
