Don't let the fancy name fool you – these perfectly-portioned bacon and cheese egg cups are the definition of foolproof. Your trusty sous vide cooker will heat the on-the-go breakfast bites to perfection while you go about your day. So you can have protein-packed snacks at the ready all week long. Slow and steady wins the meal prep race!
To re-heat egg cups, place jars (without the lid) in the microwave for about 25-30 seconds.
Do I need to butter, oil, or spray the jars before I put in the egg mixture and cooking?
Hi RJ, you certainly could try lightly greasing each jar, but it is not necessary. We can't wait to hear how they turn out! 💜
I am looking forward to making these but wanted to know- if I use larger jars (so that each jar ends up containing 2 or 3 eggs), would the processing time still be the same or would I need to increase it? I am new to sous vide!
Thanks so much
Hi Sarah! We haven't tried any variations other than the original recipe, but would love to hear how it turns out for you once you have a chance to give it a try!
Nutritional information please
Hi Jake! Unfortunately we don't have specific nutrient listings for this recipe. We like to go by the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference to find average nutrient amounts, which we know have been scientifically derived. We would suggest using this database to find information based on the ingredients: https://fdc.nal.usda.gov/ which should give you an idea. Please let us know if we may assist further!
Can you do this in the oven in a water bath? (Like a custard)
We haven't given that a try, Kristin, and that could be a bit harsher heat in the oven, even with the water bath, so we would recommend searching for our "Bacon, Egg, and Cheese muffins" recipe instead which was designed to only need an oven, and makes a similarly delicious treat. If you do give it a try in the oven, we'd love to know how it goes!
25 - 30 seconds each, per dozen, Is this after refrigeration only?
Correct - the egg cups should be reheated for 25-30 seconds after being fully cooked sous vide style. We hope that helps!
