We’re back with another super simple sous vide recipe. This time, we’re ditching the meat and keeping things vegetarian with quick and easy sous vide eggs recipe.

I’m sure you’ve had the famous Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites. Well, guess what? You can actually make these in your own kitchen and in no time at all!

Sous vide cooking is a method of cooking where you use a regulated water bath to precisely cook food to a certain temperature. Want to cook a steak to medium-rare? Good news! If you sous vide the steak at 130ºF, the entire steak will come out medium rare, not just the middle. The great thing about the sous vide is that whatever you are trying to cook, will come out perfectly even.

ypically meats and other food such as eggs or vegetables are vacuum-sealed in a plastic bag with the air removed and then submerged into the water bath. In this recipe’s case, we used a Mason Jar as the vessel, which works in the exact same way.

If you are looking for the perfect, reasonable sous vide. We HIGHLY recommend the Anova Culinary 800W. It’s Smartphone-friendly and costs $99.

What Are Sous Vide Egg Bites?

Sous Vide Eggs are essentially like little egg soufflés made in your sous vide. If you’ve ever had any of our egg cups, they’re similar to those, but airier and cooked absolutely perfectly even.

That’s the beauty of the sous vide; whatever you are cooking is going to cook perfectly even. Let me explain…

When you cook egg bites in the oven in a muffin tin (like this baked eggs recipe) sometimes they can come out a little bit harder on the outside and more perfect in the middle. That’s because whatever touches the muffin tin is going to get hotter faster, thus making the outside more well-done.

When you cook something in the sous vide, the entire thing is submerged in water, which is the same temperature throughout the entire pot, thus cooking whatever is being sous vide perfectly even throughout. Once you make this Sous Vide Eggs Bites recipe, you will totally get what I’m saying.


Sous vide eggs are a great healthy breakfast option for those looking to add protein to their diet. This recipe for egg bites is also low carb, gluten-free, and both keto and paleo-friendly!

How to Make Sous Vide Egg Bites


What you’ll need for this recipe is very simple and only requires 3 main ingredients.

  • large eggs
  • milk
  • shredded cheese

You’ll also need some salt and pepper and if you like hot sauce for serving, we recommend that too! In addition to the ingredients for this recipe, you’ll also need a large stockpot and 6-9 4 oz. Mason Jars.

Can I use just egg whites instead of a full egg?

Yes, you can use just egg whites! However, you may want to increase the number of egg whites you use so that each jar fills up about 3/4 of the way full.


First, attach your sous vide to the edge of your stockpot. Since all stock pots are different sizes, place your Mason Jars inside to see how many will fit on the bottom when cooking. After you’ve gotten your count, remove the Mason Jars, and then fill the stockpot up with water about halfway.

The goal here is to make sure your Mason Jars will fully submerge in the water, so you’ll want to fill it at least to that height. Set the temperature on your sous vide to 172ºF and press start.

At this point, your sous vide will begin heating the water to exactly 172ºF, the perfect temperature for these airy, delicious sous vide egg bites.

Have a small and tall stockpot? Try stacking your mason jar on top of each other so that you can cook more at once!


To make sous vide eggs, you need some sort of vessel to house your egg bites and we chose to use mini 4-oz. Mason Jars. You can order these on Amazon or buy them at your local grocery store and they are very affordable.

The most important part of this recipe is making sure that each Mason Jar is well oiled. I repeat, DO NOT forget to spray/oil your jars before adding in the egg.

You do this so that the egg bites don’t stick to the edges. Use something like coconut oil cooking spray or olive oil to grease the inside of your Jars.


Now it’s time to assemble your sous vide eggs!

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.
  2. Then, place 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese on the bottom of each Mason Jar.
  3. Fill the jar up about 3/4 of the way full with the egg mixture and then season with salt and pepper on top.

Can I add other ingredients to my sous vide egg bites?

Yes, of course! If you’d like to add more variety and flavor to your eggs, feel free to do so in step 2. Here are some add-in ideas:

  1. cooked peppers and onions
  2. cooked breakfast sausage/bacon
  3. sauteed garlic
  4. fresh herbs


Now that you’ve prepared your Sous Vide Egg Bites, it’s time to screw the tops on. This part is also very important because you don’t want to screw the lids on too tight or you will risk them exploding in the water bath.

Screw the tops on and then unscrew them one turn. This will ensure the pressure won’t get trapped inside of the jars.


Now it’s time to cook your eggs in sous vide! Once the water in your pot as reached 172ºF, place all of the Mason Jars on the bottom of your stockpot. They should sink right to the bottom and you should see lots of bubbles come to the top IF you unscrewed the tops properly.

How long does it take to sous vide eggs?

Set your timer to 1 hour and let your egg cups cook.

Can my eggs cook longer than an hour? Yes, they can! We don’t recommend cooking your eggs for any longer than 2 hours.

Jars in Pot submerged in water


Use tongs to remove your egg bites from the water bath (they will be HOT) and let them cool for around 10 minutes. Then, carefully remove the lids and use a knife to remove your egg cups from the Mason Jars. If you sprayed them well enough, they should come right out!

Alternatively, you can throw the jars right into the fridge for an easy grab and go breakfast in the morning still in the Mason Jar.
