These Bacon and Gruyere Egg Bites are a copycat of the Starbucks egg bites recipe without the sous vide equipment!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 lb bacon, cooked
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/3 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup gruyere cheese, shredded | sub Swiss cheese, Monterey Jack or cheddar
  • 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 4 - 6 dashes hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt


  1. Fill an oven safe dish with about an inch of water, place on the bottom rack of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together all the ingredients and distribute evenly in a lined 12 cup muffin tin.
  3. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until the egg is set and firm.


I like lining my muffin tins to prevent the egg bites from sticking to the tins. Another option would be to use a silicone muffin tin.
