Instant Pot Low-Carb Dairy-Free Sous Vide Spinach and Chicken Sausage Egg Bites were my second experiment using the Instant Pot for egg bites. Last month, I tried out Low-Carb Bacon Egg Bites. They were amazing!

The first time I made the egg bites I used fat-free cottage cheese in the recipe. The cottage cheese is blended with the remaining ingredients and then added to the egg bite molds. The cottage cheese gives the egg bites a smooth and soft texture. The egg bites in this recipe were intended to be dairy-free, and thus I did not use cottage cheese. Feel free to add it if you are not looking for a dairy-free alternative.

This dairy-free option was inspired by a close friend of mine. She has a dairy allergy. She is often looking for new recipes, especially items for breakfast that do not use dairy.

She recently graduated from a yoga teacher instruction training program. As her graduation gift, I developed this recipe and prepared these egg bites for her. She loved them!

I have said it before and I will say it again, I love egg bites because there are so many variations you can create. I used chicken sausage in this recipe. Feel free to use bacon, ham, Canadian bacon, or whatever you wish! You really cannot go wrong.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 22 minutes
Total Time 27 minutes
Servings 9
Calories 81kcal

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 2 pieces chicken sausage cooked and sliced into small pieces
  • 1 cup frozen spinach drained
  • 1/2 green pepper chopped
  • 1 cup red onion chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  • Combine the eggs, egg whites, drained spinach, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Whisk well to blend. 
  • Add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot. Add the trivet (this comes with the Instant Pot).
  • Carefully, add the baby-food container to the Pot. I have a 6qt Instant Pot. The baby-food container I used has 9 compartments. This is a tight squeeze! FYI, but it still works out just fine.
  • Using a ladle, spoon the egg mixture into each of the compartments of the baby-food container.
  • Top with the chopped peppers, onions, and chicken sausage.
  • Cover with the baby container lid. I did not snap the lid perfectly in place. I made sure the egg bites were covered.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and seal. Set the Instant Pot to the Steam setting. Cook for 12 minutes.
  • Allow the steam to naturally release for 10 minutes, instead of immediate quick release.
  • Press the release button, open the pot, and remove the container.
  • Allow the egg bites to cool for a few minutes.
  • To remove the bites, I carefully pushed up on the bottom of each. From there, each should slide right out.

Notes

The method used in this recipe is an approximation of the sous vide texture.
Optional: Sprinkle parsley throughout to garnish.
