Instant Pot Egg Bites AKA Copy Cat Starbucks Eggs

  • 12 eggs
  • Bacon
  • Diced ham
  • Shredded cheese 
  • ½ cup of milk
  • ½ cup of cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp of butter softened
  • Dry mustard
  • garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Place the bacon on a cookie sheet and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes
  2. In a large bowl (or pot in our case since we ran out of bowls in the condo) place in your dozen eggs, butter, seasoning, and cottage cheese.  We used an immersion blender, if you don't have one just drop it in a blender and let it blend.
  3. Rub the silicone cups with oil, or we used butter since no one packed the oil, or nonstick spray
  4. Put about a half cup of water in the liner and turn the Instant Pot to saute to warm it up
  5. Cut bacon into chunks that will fit in the egg cups dish. We used scissors to cut up the bacon and then press the bacon into a cup.
  6. OR place ham into the bottom of the silicone cup
  7. Pour some of the egg mixture from the large bowl into a pour-able Pyrex measuring bowl and add in cheese, pay attention the cheese clumping as you are pouring from the measuring bowl. If you aren't comfortable pouring with the cheese you can layer in the silicone pan on top of the bacon and on top of the egg mixture.
  8. Make sure your trivet is in the bottom of the instant pot and make sure the handles are upwards for easier removal of the pans after it's done cooking
  9. Place carefully in the instant pot, if doing both silicone egg pans make sure the cups line up so they stack
  10. Seal the instant pot lid and press manual and press the plus sign/minus sinus till the display screen says 6. Walk away and allow to cook.
  11. When the Instant Pot beeps that the cooking has ended wait 10 minutes for a natural release and then at that time you can release the pressure valve.
