  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup smoked ham (or leftover ham, finely diced)
  • 2 tablespoon roasted peppers (finely diced)


  • In a blender cup, add the eggs, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, melted butter, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Blend until smooth, about 20-30 seconds.
  • Pour the egg mixture evenly into all of the wells on an Instant Pot egg bites mold. You want to leave about 1/2-inch space at the top of each well.
  • Sprinkle the ham and roasted peppers over evenly onto the batter in each well.
  • Lay a paper towel over the mold, then cover it tightly with foil so that steam doesn’t get inside.
  • Place the trivet in the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. Place the egg bites mold onto the trivet.
  • Lock the lid into place and ensure that the vent is sealed. Set to pressure to cook on high for 8 minutes. Allow the pot to natural release for 10 minutes, then turn the valve the vent and open.
  • Carefully remove the egg bites mold and allow to cool for a few minutes before uncovering.
  • Using a butter knife, loosen the edges of each egg bite from the sides of the well and gently pop out each of the egg bites and plate.



Tips and Techniques

  • If you don’t care for cheddar or would just like to change up the flavor, you can swap in another flavor of cheese. Cheddar and Gruyere are great options.
  • You can use a combination of red and green peppers or all of one type. If using jarred peppers, be sure to pat them dry first.
  • Store leftover egg bites in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 4 days.
