Bacon & Gruyere Sous Vide Egg Bites

The only thing that makes eggs better than they already are is when you add things to them and one of my favorite pairings with eggs is bacon and cheese.

OH yeah! You cannot go wrong when you add bacon and cheese to your eggs. Bacon is life! I mean, is there any dish that doesn’t go with bacon?

Nope. EVERYTHING is better with bacon – Smithfield Bacon in this case!

There’s no doubt that bacon makes everything better – and nothing is better than Smithfield’s slow-smoked and cured bacon.

Whether you prefer it crispy or chewy, Smithfield Bacon is perfect on its own or added to any of your favorite dishes morning, noon or night.

With Smithfield’s wide variety of flavors and cuts, like the classic Hometown Original Bacon, Cherrywood Smoked Bacon, and Thick Cut Bacon, you can bacon-ify anything you like: bacon on s’mores, bacon on pancakes, or even a regular BLT made with a mountain of bacon.

Lately, I’ve been really loving the new Sous Vide Egg Bites at my favorite cafe. They are DELICIOUS and pretty good for you.

After I work out I will run through the cafe and grab a latte and an order of Bacon Gruyere Egg Bites. Heaven!  But the only bad thing is that they are pretty darn expensive. I am going to need to back off OR make my own. So, I’m making my own!

I know to make true Sous Vide Egg Bites you need a special machine, or you can make them in the oven.  But, I thought I’d pull out my pressure cooker and give it another use – BREAKFAST! And, boy am I glad I did!

These pressure cooker Sous Bacon and Gruyere Egg Bites are to die for!  AND they take no time at all to make! Here’s a quick and easy way to make your very own Sous Vide Egg Bites at home WITH bacon!

Bacon & Gruyere Sous Vide Egg Bites


You’ll need these ingredients to make Sous Vide Bacon & Gruyere Egg Bites:

1 Package of Smithfield Bacon
4 eggs
1/2 cup cottage cheese
Gruyere cheese

How to Make Instant Pot Sous Vide Bacon & Gruyere Egg Bites:

  • Blend: together the eggs, cottage cheese and cheese in a blender until all incorporated.  I believe it’s under 30 seconds to have it all mixed well.
  • Add: cooked bacon strips to the inside of a silicone mold and a little cheese.
