Amaziya Egg Bites
Sticking to a diet is not easy. Being disciplined about your caloric intake and nutrition takes dedication and discipline. The keto diet is especially tough because you are minimizing carbohydrates to a point that you may feel deprived, and that’s definitely not a fun place to be. The good news is that you can make breakfast, feel decadent and indulgent again without throwing off your diet: sous vide egg bites.
You’ve seen them at Starbucks when you drop in, but the whole “sous vide” in the title can make them seem as though they are created in a method that you can’t possibly replicate at home. Nothing could be further from the truth. All you need is an instant pot or pressure cooker and an Amaziya Silicone Egg Mold, and you will be dining on decadent little egg bites of your
How, you ask? Let me give you the rundown on how Amaziya Silicone Egg molds can help you enjoy delicious pre-made egg bites for breakfast each day, and I’ll share some recipes as well to ensure you have a variety to choose from and keep breakfast interesting.
Why Make “Sous Vide” Egg Bites?
Technically speaking, making egg bites in an instant pot or pressure cooker doesn’t actually qualify as sous vide cuisine, but it definitely replicates the texture and flavor nicely. Eating egg bites for breakfast is a great keto-friendly way to get your morning protein quickly and in a form that can be consumed on the go or in your work space. They also lend themselves well to weekly meal prepping.
Cooking your breakfast ahead of time one day a week makes a big difference in sticking to your diet too, and egg bites are an ideal breakfast food to be refrigerated or frozen to eat later. Pick a day of the week or weekend to be your meal prep day and use your instant pot to cook up a few batches of egg bites to help you get through until the next meal prep day. You can even make different flavors and styles simultaneously, so there’s no need to eat the same egg bites each day of the week. Better yet, the ingredients you select for your egg bites can make your breakfast extra nutritious.
You can add different chopped meats, fresh chopped veggies or greens, sautéed and chopped vegetables, and many herbs and spices to make each meal unique and delightful. These extras also serve to ensure you get your daily servings of fiber, vitamins and minerals, too. Many of the recipes we are going to examine today are great ways to supplement your breakfast and improve the content of what you eat with minimal effort, so an open mind and a willingness to try new things are a must.

How to Use Silicone Egg Molds with Your Instant Pot
Most recipes call for the same steps, so I’ll give you a quick overview of how to use your egg mold:
- Pour a cup of water into the liner of the instant
- Mix-up your eggs with seasonings and spices in a separate bowl. A blender or cake mixer makes this task
- Spray or rub some cooking oil in your molds (grapeseed oil tastes best to me, but it’s a matter of preference).
- Put meat, cheese and other ingredients in the molds first. Any meat you are adding needs to be precooked, otherwise you run the risk eating undercooked meat. Same goes for sautéing any veggies or other ingredients so that they cook thoroughly during the instant pot
- Pour your egg mixture over the ingredients in the molds. Make sure your eggs are mixed thoroughly to provide the most consistent
- Add more cheese or seasoning to the now filled egg
- Put your silicone molds in a few inches of water in your instant
- Use your pots Manual Mode and set it for 6. Let it
- After the pot beeps to indicate it is done, wait 10 minutes for pressure to release naturally then release the pressure
- Remove your molds carefully using the trivet handles and a towel, pot holder, or oven mitts.
- Put the molds upside down on a dinner plate. Allow to stand for a few minutes, then remove the mold (you can use the included spoon if your egg bites don’t just fall out). Your egg bites are ready to eat!
-To heat up refrigerated egg bites, pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds. They keep for roughly a week.
-Frozen egg bites stay fresh longer, but they typically need 1-2 minutes in the average microwave to be heated all the way through. They will keep for up to a month frozen before the prolonged freezing affects the flavor.
