Rich, tasty and full of protein, these Instant Pot Italian egg bites will satisfy you and get you through your morning.

 

Protein With Your Meals

I cannot stress enough that having protein with your meal or snack is so beneficial.

Not only will protein keep you full longer, it is known to support weight loss. 

Getting enough protein will allow your body to feel satisfied for 2-3 hours (or more for some people) instead of reaching for food shortly after eating a big meal without much protein.

Protein Builds And Repairs

Your hair and nails are made up mostly of protein. 

Our bodies also use protein to build and repair tissue. 

There are many more technical ways that our bodies use protein for everyday life. 

It’s so important and should be the center of every meal and snack.

 

Egg Bites On The Go

If you’ve been into a Starbucks you already know they sell their famous Sous Vide egg bites. 

I haven’t personally tried them. Reading about them, I’ve discovered that they are a personal choice if you follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan. 

During my summer travels (I’m actually typing this as I ride down the road) I try to make good choices for the most part.

I would definitely buy a serving of Starbucks egg bites and enjoy them!

 My Version Of Egg Bites

I’ve been wanting to make a copycat version of the Starbucks egg bites and found a yummy recipe that works well with an S fuel. 

I’ve changed a few things around to make it more like an Italian flavored egg bite recipe. 

To be honest, egg bites can be whatever flavor you want. 

If you like a bit of spice, add a few drops of hot sauce.  Maybe you like plain egg bites without any meat…just omit it!

 

Instant Pot To The Rescue

If you don’t own an Instant Pot, they are worth it just for this recipe! 

No really, I use my Instant Pot many times throughout the week. 

They can be a lifesaver for last minute supper meals. 

I’m sure there is a recipe out there for egg bites being baked in the oven. 

I think the Instant Pot does a splendid job, so that’s the way I choose to make mine. 

I have an 8 quart and a 6 quart.  I enjoy them for different uses.  

Here are a couple highlighted links if you’d like to buy the same Instant Pots that I use.

Italian Flare

Like I already mentioned, you can give your egg bites your own favorite flavor. 

The basic recipe will be somewhat the same. 

I love plain egg bites with a bit of crumbled bacon on the bottom. 

Thoughts of pizza flavors were swirling around in my mind. 

I wondered what a pizza flavored egg bite would taste like, so Italian flavor it was!

 

Silicone Egg Molds

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this silicone egg mold is a necessity for making egg bites!

  Yes, I know you’re thinking “they are not necessary”, but I enjoy the convenience of them. 

They are easy to use, easy to clean and easy to cook with. 

If you do a Google search “silicone egg mold recipes”, you’re sure to come up with several more ways to use these wonderful items.

Quick and Simple

Who doesn’t love a meal you don’t have to think about? 

Maybe you’re like me at times…you open the fridge and wonder what looks good for breakfast? 

With these egg bites in your fridge, you can easily heat up a couple in the microwave and (almost) in a blink of an eye…breakfast is served! 

 I like to make a few batches of this recipe just for that purpose alone. 

This is a yummy protein-filled breakfast that I can warm up and eat in a hurry! 

You can even eat them on your way to work or the gym.
