Instant Pot Egg Bites With Cheese & Jalapeños

Instant Pot egg bites are easy to make and are super convenient for breakfast, lunch or as a snack. This recipe for cheesy jalapeño egg bites is by Kristy Bernardo from The Big Book Of Instant Pot Recipes. She often makes these bites for the family as they can be popped into the microwave for a quick weekday breaky. These egg bites and gluten-free and grain-free.


The easiest way to make Instant Pot egg bites is by using silicone egg-bite moulds, which usually come with 6 casings. The recipe below is for 6 egg bites, so you only need one mould. You can, however, stack two moulds on top of each other if you want to make a bigger batch (simply double the ingredients).

Usually, you can measure out 1 large egg per 1 casing but you can add more. Please note that the mixture will grow while cooking. You can whisk all the eggs together with any other ingredients (cream, cheese, ham, veggies, mushrooms, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes) or you can add an egg in each casing and mix it with a fork. 

Make sure to place a trivet inside the pot so that the mould doesn’t sit directly in water. Some moulds have trivet like legs or edges that they can stand on, in which case you might not need a trivet.

General cooking time for egg bites in the Instant Pot is 10 minutes using the STEAM setting with 10 minutes natural pressure release.

Cooked egg bites will last for 2-3 days in the fridge and can be frozen. Make sure to cool the egg bites completely before refrigerating or freezing. Wrap each bite in some plastic wrap and then freeze in a Ziploc bag or a container. You can reheat egg bites from frozen in a microwave or oven. Make sure to remove the plastic wrap and some people recommend to wrap them in a paper towel. Heat for 2 minutes on HIGH in the microwave or for 15-20 minutes in a hot oven.
