  • 1 cup water
  • 4 slicescups applewood smoked bacon cooked
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Gruyere Cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup Monterrey Jack grated
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • non-stick spray


  • 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!


What does Gruyere taste like?
It’s a very rich, creamy cheese with a nutty texture. I could only find smoked. If you can’t find it.
What can I use instead of Gruyere if I can’t find it?
You can use Jarlsberg or Raclette cheese – heavy melty cheeses – those are types of Swiss. I wouldn’t use straight Swiss unless you really like it as it changes the flavor.
Do Starbucks Egg Bites have dairy?
Yes. Lots.
Can egg bites be frozen?
Yes – after you bake them – pop them in a freezer bag and you’re good to go!
How do you reheat egg bites?
I make these on Sunday and then have breakfast all week. I reheat in the microwave for 40 seconds.
