If you love the idea of an easy breakfast on the go, you’ll love these egg bites. With an incredibly silky filling and multitude of flavoring possibilities, they make for excellent batch cooking. Use the Anova Precision Oven’s sous vide mode with 100% steam, along with silicone molds, so you can mix and match flavors. Notes: To reheat, place an un-molded egg bite on a plate and microwave on high for 15 to 20 seconds. This recipe makes 2 cups of egg mixture for 24 small individual bites, which serves about 6 people. You can also make these egg bites in miniature or regular-sized muffin tins, but the yield will vary.
