Recipe makes 6 egg bites, you can easily double or triple the recipe.
Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees F and place a baking dish that is filled with 1-2" water on the bottom rack. This will create a humid environment and help the eggs cook evenly and make them light & fluffy like Starbucks!
While oven is preheating, cook bacon however you would normally make it. I use my air fryer for 10 minutes at 350. I like to undercook it a little for this recipe so it’s NOT crispy. Once cooked, pat grease off with paper towel and roughly chop.
Grate gruyere and monterrey jack but save back 1/4 cup of grated cheese (all one, mix of two - whatever)
Add the eggs, cheese, cottage cheese, hot sauce, parsley, salt and pepper to a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds until light and frothy.
Spray a muffin tin with a little non-stick spray and fill the tins with the egg mixture. add in bacon and remaining cheese and split between the tins. I used a “texas sized” muffin pan and they were approx half full
bake in the oven for 25-27 minutes, or until the center of the egg bites are just set.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then use a spatula, carefully remove them from the muffin tin. Enjoy!
