Egg bites are a delicious and easy breakfast or snack that can be customized to your liking. They are made with eggs, cottage cheese, shredded cheese, and your choice of mix-ins. The egg mixture is blended until smooth and then poured into a muffin tin and baked until puffed and set. The egg bites can be enjoyed hot or cold and are a great source of protein.

Prep Time Cook Time Servings
15 mins 20 mins 6-8


  • 8 large eggs
  • ⅔ cup whole-fat cottage cheese
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Gruyère cheese

Additional mix-ins (optional)

  • ⅓ cup chopped cooked bacon
  • ½ cup chopped spinach
  • ¼ cup diced red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives


    1. Blender
    2. Muffin tin
    3. Non-stick cooking spray


    step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 ℉ (175 ℃). Lightly grease a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

    step 2

    In a blender, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth, about 1 min.

    step 3

    Stir in the shredded Gruyère cheese and your chosen mix-ins.

    step 4

    Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.

    step 5

    Bake for 15-20 mins, or until the egg bites are puffed and set.

    step 6

    Let the egg bites cool in the muffin tin for 5 mins before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    1. To prevent the egg bites from sticking to the muffin tin, grease the cups well with non-stick cooking spray.
    2. If you don't have a blender, you can whisk the eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until smooth.
    3. For a more personalized touch, add your favorite mix-ins to the egg mixture before baking. Some popular options include chopped vegetables, cooked meat, and herbs.
    4. The egg bites can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in a microwave or oven until warmed through.
    Additional Notes:
    1. This recipe is easily doubled or tripled to make a larger batch of egg bites.
    2. If you don't have a muffin tin, you can bake the egg bites in ramekins or other small baking dishes.
    3. Egg bites are a great source of protein and can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or a snack.
