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, 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. TYPICALLY 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.

Sous Vide Egg Bites

  • Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites version utilizes Gruyere and Monterey Jack cheese, however we’ve tested it with smoked gouda, pepper jack and cheddar with success. Swiss cheese works, however the flavor is lacking. Mix and match depending on what you have in your fridge.
  • This recipe also works well with cream cheese vs cottage cheese. It’s not quite a light, but the flavor profile is consistent.
  • Make sure to utilize your blender for a consistently smooth texture.
  • Don’t have heavy cream or prefer to cut down on the calories? Feel free to leave it out. We find the flavor is on par, however it helps smooth out the texture to get that Sous Vide smoothness.
