Sous Vide Bacon and Jarlsberg Egg Bite
Everyone is doing Sous Vide Egg Bites because of Starbucks newest craze. At $5.00 a pop, I can understand why homemade Sous Vide Egg Bites would be very attractive. Depending on the size pot you use, the number of Sous Vide Egg Bites you can prepare at once, is up to you.
If you don’t have an Instant Pot Sous Vide Circulator I’ve got you covered!
This Silicone Egg Bites Tray will bake fantastic Egg Bites, in under 10 minutes!
Another flavor option and Low Carb/Keto is my My Pressure Cooker Low Carb Mini Mushroom Quiche.

I chose to use Bacon because, well, BACON! Everyone loves Bacon….except for me. 🙂 I don’t mind it in small doses, but my husband loves the stuff! I chose Jarlsberg Cheese, because it is one of my favorite types of cheese and brings back memories from my childhood; especially my Dad.
Starting when I was very young, my Dad hosted Wine Tastings in our home. Those were so much fun. Of course, I was too young to drink the wine, but I loved the food that came between glasses. Our friend owned Leon’s Liquors and would loan us wine glasses and big wheels of cheese, one of which was Jarlsberg. The Wine Tastings continued and I was finally able to participate in the Wine portion, as well.
Jarlsberg is a mild buttery cheese that originates from Norway. It’s a little sweet and nutty and is an overall multi-purpose cheese. I love it on Bagels and in Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese and I love to grab a chunk, as a snack. It is a nice and melty cheese, so try some on top of, well, anything!
Before starting this recipe, fry up some Bacon in your Lodge 10.25″ Cast Iron Skillet. Drain off the Bacon Grease and set aside.
Seriously guys, grease your Mason Jars really, really well. Eggs stick to glass super badly and it is bitch to get out. Since you have just cooked some bacon for the recipe, you might consider using bacon grease. I experimented with various types of oil and the bacon grease, gave the best release. The Sous Vide Bacon and Jarlsberg Egg Bites just popped right out of the jars. In the above photo, the jar in the lower left was greased with butter. That Bite was not as easy as the other jars, to remove.
Divide up the Bacon between all six Mason Jars. I broke the Bacon into several pieces, to ensure a piece in each Bite. I take small bites, so, there’s that…….
Place all Jars into the Water Bath. Fill your Pressure Cooker cooking pot or any other large pot, with water. Make sure to leave enough room for your Sous Vide Circulator, so that the water won’t go above the “Max” line.
Place the Sous Vide Circulator into your Pot and lock it in place. Set the temperature to 172 degrees and the time to 60 minutes. The Sous Vide Circulator will begin to come up to temperature. Once it gets to temperature, it will begin to count down.
Remove the Lids and take a butter knife and loosen the Egg Bites and then pop out.
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.
