Love at First Egg Bite

My first egg bite was the Starbucks bacon and gruyere egg bites. The fluffy, soft, hot, egg bite was love at first bite. 

At $4.45 it’s a wonderful quick breakfast option in the mornings, but I wanted to be able to make them at home. 

Why bother? Well I’m particular and lazy therefore it’s easier for me to make a batch of these breakfast egg bites recipe for the week and be able to grab one from the fridge and go. Also call me a control freak, but I like to consume quality ingredients down to the oil whenever possible. 

So while I enjoy a drive through here and there and let loose when eating out, this Starbucks habit adds up when it comes to money and health. I also am not a fan of Starbucks coffee and prefer my at home Nespresso. 

Here’s how to recreate the Starbucks egg bite, but a la Cafe Serein and a bit more nutrient dense as well as filling.
