Summer is over. School is starting. And we all have to get back into a morning routine.
That includes a tasty, filling breakfast for our kiddos. But it still needs to be a quick meal. Because, let’s face it, we’re usually rushing in the mornings at my house.
Sounds like a breakfast for the Instant Pot, or your favorite pressure cooker.
For Egg Bites, you will need…
7 slices bacon
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. spinach, chopped
1/2 c. heavy cream
1/2 c. Swiss cheese
1 tbsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. garlic powder
silicone egg molds (2-7 hole molds)
Pressure cookers are a time-saver! We cook everything from roast to these tasty eggs in ours and love it.
The first thing you want to do is get your bacon cooking. Cut the bacon in half, and cook it over medium heat. You want it cooked through, but not crispy. While the bacon is cooking, blend the all the remaining ingredients, except the bacon and spinach, together in a food processor until frothy.
Quickly pulse in the chopped spinach. If you do it too long, you will end up with green eggs.
Place a half slice of bacon in the bottom of each mold.
Pour the egg mixture over the bacon in the molds. You want a little water in the bottom of the pot so the eggs will steam. About a 1/2 cup will do. Then place the egg molds in the cooker.
I like to make these and divide them into containers, so they can be popped in the microwave for about 30 seconds in the morning. Chock full of protein and vitamins to start your day right. It’s a great way to welcome school back into your routine. Good luck of the first days of classes and from all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
