How to Make Starbucks’ Sous Vide Egg Bites at Home

Need more proof that sous vide is taking the culinary world by storm? Starbucks just introduced two new breakfast items – and here’s a hint: it’s not another sandwich.

Packed with protein and grain-free, Starbucks’ Sous Vide Egg Bites come in two varieties: Bacon & Gruyere, and Egg White and Roasted Red Pepper. Both are cooked with cage-free eggs and low in calories – 170 calories for the egg white version, and 310 calories for the bacon and Gruyere.

I had the chance to try both versions, each velvety in texture and rich in flavor. While I’ll admit the bacon gruyere was my favorite, the roasted red pepper wasn’t far behind. Each order comes with two egg bites served in convenient tin-shaped cardboard. Starbucks gets a few extra brownie points for the presentation here. Usually, their sandwiches are haphazardly tossed in a bag.

While the coffee chain’s Sous Vide Egg Bites are a surprisingly healthy option for breakfast, they’re still a fast, processed food. And at almost $5 a pop, they’re expensive. You can buy a dozen organic, pasture-raised eggs for that price. For conventional eggs, you could buy at least two dozen.

If you have your own sous vide machine, you can save yourself a small fortune and make these eggs right in your own kitchen – whenever you want.

Egg White & Red Pepper

  • Egg whites
  • Cottage cheese
  • Monterrey jack cheese
  • Red bell pepper
  • Rice starch
  • Unsalted butter
  • Spinach
  • Canola oil
  • Feta cheese
  • Green onion
  • Salt
  • Hot sauce

The two surprising ingredients – in my opinion – are the cottage cheese and hot sauce. The bites weren’t particularly spicy, and since it’s last on the ingredient list, it’s safe to assume they used just a drop or two. The cottage cheese is what gives the bites their creaminess.

We’ll use most of these ingredients to create our own version of sous vide egg bites.
