How to Make Egg Bites
Gather all your ingredients. If you need to cook your bacon, the air fryer or oven baking method produces crisp bacon.
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray two 12-count muffin tins with nonstick spray and set aside.
In a blender or large bowl, carefully crack the eggs, add the heavy cream, half the shredded cheese, half the bacon, ricotta, salt, and pepper. Blend using a blender or by using a hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
Carefully fill each muffin tin space ⅔ of the way full with the egg mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes. The egg bites should feel firm and springy. If they are still watery, continue to bake them in 3-minute increments until no longer underbaked.
Top each space with additional extra cheese, and bacon crumbles and broil them for 1-2 minutes.
Allow cooling for 5 minutes before gently removing them with a plastic knife. Simply run the knife around the edges of the bites and they should easily pop out.
Bacon – Swap traditional bacon for turkey or chicken bacon for fewer calories and fat. You can use any size of bacon that you like, but we recommend using crispy, cooked bacon that is cut into small pieces so that it disperses easily throughout the bites.
Cheese – You can use any variety of cheese you prefer. White or yellow cheddar, mozzarella, gruyere, pizza blend, Mexican blend, shredded swiss, or even provolone. Just be sure to use the ricotta for the best texture! We recommend using cheese that is shredded or grated so that it melts easily.
Cream – Don’t have heavy cream? That is okay! Light cream, half and half, and even whole milk will work just fine!
These egg bites will last in the refrigerator for up to four days. To reheat, simply heat them in the microwave for 30 – 45 seconds or until warmed through. Enjoy!
Did you know egg bites can be easily frozen for up to three months?
To freeze bacon and cheese egg bites, simply place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. They will last for up to 2 months in the freezer.
When you’re ready to eat them, just thaw them overnight in the fridge, and then reheat them in the microwave or oven.
