Easy Egg Bites Two Ways
These easy egg bites two ways have been a go-to for me throughout college. I love to make them at the beginning of the week when I have a little bit of extra time and then I can store them in the fridge to have for breakfast or even just a quick snack throughout the week.

To the second bowl add cheddar and bacon
Whisk both bowls well and pour the mixture into a silicone muffin tray
Each bowl of the mixture should make three egg bites
Bake for 12 minutes
Remove from oven and top with parsley and your choice of hot sauce
These easy egg bites two ways have been a go-to for me throughout college. I love to make them in the beginning of the week when I have a little bit of extra time and then I can store them in the fridge to have for breakfast or even just a quick snack throughout the week.
I first got the idea to make these about three years ago after I tried the Starbucks egg bites for the first time. I tried them and thought I could make them myself. The best thing about making these at home is that you can get creative with whatever mix ins you want.
I usually do tomato, arugula, and then either feta or mozzarella but as you can see here, I also did an option with bacon and cheddar. I’ve made these with mushrooms, red pepper, scallions, and really any veggies I’ve had in my fridge. The options are endless and you can put in whatever you want. The only thing I need to mention is that the egg bites might take longer to cook if you have a lot of cheese in there otherwise, the time should be pretty standard no matter the ingredients.

Whenever I make these easy egg bites two ways at school I always intend to make enough for the week, but between my roommates and I, they never last more than two days. If you are going to be storing these in the refrigerator and not eating them all directly out of the oven, I suggest storing them in an airtight container and then popping them in the toaster for two minutes before serving. I serve my egg bites with just a little bit of hot sauce on top, but you could serve them however you want.
These are so great to have because two or three of them can make the perfect breakfast and one of them is the ideal high-protein snack to grab on your way out the door. These easy egg bites two ways are so fresh, so fluffy and so delicious.
I’ve made these easy egg bites two ways in both silicone and metal muffin tins, but I have found the silicone molds to be much better for this specific recipe. Because the silicone is flexible it’s very easy to invert the mold and pop the easy egg bites two ways out. It isn’t challenging to get the egg bites out of the metal tin, I just find that the edges burn a little bit more and you lose a bit of that fluffy texture.
