Sous Vide Bacon Cheddar Broccoli Egg Cup Bites Recipe
Watch out Starbucks, here's an easy egg cup bite you can make at home with sous vide. The best part is that you can add any of your favorite ingredients! This version has bacon, broccoli, cheddar cheese and shallots for a super-flavorful breakfast meal.
These egg cup bites were first popularized by Starbucks but are really easy to make at home. You can use any ingredients you want to flavor them but my favorite is broccoli, cheddar cheese and bacon. For a lighter egg you can replace the cream with milk, or use 1/4 cup cream cheese for a denser egg.
You can make them in any glass container but the 1/4 pint or 1/2 pint work really well. I've also made them in ramekins which create a great shape for the egg.
