What is Jarlsberg Cheese?
Jarlsberg is a mild buttery cheese that originates from Norway.
It’s a little sweet and nutty and is an overall multi-purpose cheese.
There is a similar taste to Swiss cheese. Jarlsberg has big holes too.
It is great melted on bagels and in my Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese
It is a nice and melty cheese, so try some on top of, well, anything!
How to Make Starbuck Sous Vide Egg Bites.
Small mason jars need to be greased really well.
Bacon or ham is added to the glass jars.
The frothy eggs with the cheese are poured into the jars.
Why Use Mason Jars?
They are the perfect shape for copycat Starbuck’s Egg Bites.
They hold up nicely during sous vide and keep out the water.
Sous Vide Jarlsberg Egg Bites can be stored in the mason jars for future meals..
Sausage, pepperoni, salami can be used in place of bacon.
Tips and Tricks
- Make sure to grease the mason jars or egg bite trays.
- Process the eggs until they are frothy.
- If using bacon, make sure it is crisp.
- For sous vide cooking, the jars can be filled all the way up to the groves.
Put the lids on the Mason Jars and tighten just past “finger tight.”
Place all jars into the Water Bath.
Make sure to leave enough room for your Sous Vide Circulator, so that the water won’t go above the “Max” line.
Once the Sous Vide Circulator comes to temperature, it will begin to count down.
The mason jars are super hot.
A canning jar lifter is handy to remove them from the pot.
Remove the Lids and take a butter knife and loosen the Egg Bites and then pop out.
Can I Freeze Starbucks Egg Bites?
Yes, they freeze well.
Store them in the mason jars.
If using an egg bite tray, store the extras in a air tight container.
Take THAT, Starbucks!!!! Sous Vide Bacon and Jarlsberg Egg Bites for about a buck a serving.
No preservatives or anything else you can’t pronounce.
