  • 4 slices of bacon, diced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1¼ cups (4% milkfat) cottage cheese
  • 1¼ cups shredded Gruyère cheese (or a blend of Gruyère and Cheddar or Monterey Jack)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Heaping ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce (such as Tabasco)

Steps by Step Guide to Make:

  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Place a 9×13-inch metal or ceramic baking dish on the lower oven rack and fill it halfway with boiling water. This will create steam in the oven, ensuring the egg bites cook gently and achieve a custardy texture.
  2. Spray a nonstick muffin pan generously with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a small nonstick skillet, cook the diced bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain using a slotted spoon.
  4. In a blender, combine the eggs, cottage cheese, Gruyère cheese, cornstarch, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Blend the mixture until it becomes completely smooth, which should take around 30 seconds.
  5. Pour the egg mixture evenly into the prepared muffin pan, filling each well about three-quarters full. Sprinkle the cooked bacon evenly over the egg bites. Use a spoon or your finger to press some of the bacon into the batter, ensuring it doesn’t all float on top.
  6. Bake the egg bites on the middle oven rack for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the eggs are set. You’ll notice the edges of the egg bites start to pull away slightly when they are done. Some of the egg bites may puff up and appear lopsided, but they will settle and deflate as they cool.
  7. Once baked, remove the egg bites from the oven and allow them to rest in the pan for approximately 5 minutes. Use a small spoon to loosen the egg bites from the edges of the pan, then carefully lift them out onto a plate. Serve warm and enjoy the delightful flavors.
