Today I want to show you my version of the Bacon and Gruyere Starbucks sous vide Egg Bites. Now they are not going to be exactly the same because I will be baking these in my oven and Starbucks makes them using a sous vide machine which can cost around one hundred dollar and lets be real, do we need an extra kitchen gadget that collects dust on our kitchen? My kitchen is too small for that and I don't like having gadgets that I hardly ever use taking up space. Sous vide is a French term that means you are cooking something in a "vacuum" under water for a longer period of time. The Starbucks egg bites have the perfect texture and I can't say that mine were completely the same but if you want to save some money and a few trips to Starbucks make these instead.

Some Tools I've Used for This Recipe
Bacon and Gruyere Egg Bites | Starbucks Bacon and Gruyere sous vide Egg Bites Wannabe | NO Sous Vide Cooker
½ cup of shredded Gruyere cheese (60 g)
½ cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese (60 g)
½ cup cottage cheese (60 g)
½ teaspoon salt (2 g)
Fresh black pepper
4 slices of applewood-smoked bacon
Hot Sauce (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice the bacon into thirds and place them on a cooking sheet that has been lined with aluminum foil. Bake the slices of bacon for 15-20 minutes or until crispy. Places cooked bacon on a plate that has been lined with paper towels and lay them flat.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and place a deep-dish baking dish that has 1 inch of hot water in it on the bottom rack of the oven. This helps the eggs cook evenly and keeps it moist. Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Add the eggs, shredded gruyere cheese, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper (and hot sauce) to a blender and blend until light and frothy. Fill muffin tins almost all the way to the top with the egg mixture. Divide the bacon equally among all of the muffin tins and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the center of the egg bites are just set. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then carefully remove them from the muffin tin. Serve warm. Enjoy!
