How do you release the egg bites from the silicone molds For Your Instant Pot Egg Bites?

Even though you grease your silicone mold, it can still a little finesse to get your egg bites out.  Here’s a trick that I learned while making these delicious little morsels.

Take a small rubber spatula or a butter knife and gently run around the edges of each egg cup to make sure that its loose and ready to slide right out.  If they are loose around the sides they should pop right out for you without any effect at all. 

How do I double this recipe

Doubling this recipe is as easy as pie.  Simply double all the ingredients.  After doubling you need to use two egg bites molds and you can cook two molds in your Instant Pot at one time.  To cook both egg molds at one time simply stack the two molds on top of each other. 

Be sure to cover both molds with foil so that no moisture gets into your egg bites. You will need to add 10 minutes to your cook time to be sure that both egg molds cook all the way through. 

How Do You Store Instant Pot Egg Bites for later

To store egg bites for a short period of time place them in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to five days. 

Freeze egg bites by wrapping completely cooled egg bites in plastic wrap and then storing in a freezer bag or in a freezer safe container.  You can freeze your egg bites for up to three months. 

To thaw your egg bites place in the fridge overnight and allow to thaw.   No need to stress if you forget to thaw your egg bites though, you can reheat them directly from frozen! How awesome is that? 

To reheat leftover egg bites place frozen egg bites on a microwave safe plate and reheat for 1 to 1 and half minutes.  For thawed egg bites reheat for 30 to 45 seconds and then enjoy. 

Can I use the Lid That comes with The Egg Bites Mold?

The lid is meant for store purposes only. Some lids are made out of silicone, which is fine, but others are made out of plastic. It’s best to be safe and not ruin things.

Cooking Tips

  • Where can I get this silicone mold? I bought this one, actually a set of 2, on Amazon. What I like is that it has 2 lids and not 1, to prevent spilling. Pay attention that the lid is also silicone and not plastic, so you will not cook it.
  • Egg whites: You can replace eggs with 2 1/4 cups of egg whites. And I also believe you will have to whisk them with a real whisk not a fork. Just to mix well.

Notes

  • Storing: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to  5 days.
  • Reheating: Because egg bites are small, they are quick to reheat. Pop a few on a plate in the microwave and reheat for 1 - 1.5 minutes from frozen or 30 seconds for fresh. It really depends on your microwave. For the fun fact, we do not have a microwave by choice. Maybe one day. I don't mind my egg bites cold.
  • Freezing: Cook and cool egg bites. Pop in an airtight glass container with a lid and freeze for up to 3 months. If you want to freeze in a resealable Ziploc bag, lay egg bites flat first and then toss deeper into the freezer with frozen egg bites. They are just delicate.
  • Instant Pot size: You will need 6 quart or 8 quart Instant Pot. Silicone mold will not fit into a 3 quart pressure cooker.
  • Where can I get this silicone mold? I bought this one, actually a set of 2, on Amazon. What I like is that it has 2 lids and not 1, to prevent spilling. Pay attention that lid is also silicone and not plastic, so you will not cook it.
  • Egg whites: You can replace eggs with 2 1/4 cups of egg whites. And I also believe you will have to whisk them with a real whisk not a fork. Just to mix well.
  • Prep toppings small: You can add anything you want. Just make sure to dice, chop or grate finely since egg bites are small.
  • Toppings ideas: 
  • Veggies: bell pepper, mushrooms, spinach, kale, zucchini, broccoli, asparagus.
  • Jarred and canned goods: sun dried tomatoes, green chiles, olives.
  • Cheese: Parmesan, Gruyere, Cheddar, Swiss, Feta.
  • Meat: fried bacon bits, sausage, chicken leftovers.

Weight Watchers SmartPoints and Tips to Lower Points!

Most of your SmartPoints are going to come from the Cream Cheese. Here’s how the SmartPoints stack out for the different varieties of cream cheese!

  • 4 oz Regular Cream Cheese = 18 SmartPoints on all 3 MyWW Plans. That equates to approximately 3 SmartPoints per egg bite.
  • 4 oz Low Fat Cream Cheese = 10 SmartPoints on all 3 MyWW Plans. That equates to approximately 1.5 SmartPoints per egg bite.
  • 4 oz Fat Free Cream Cheese = 3 SmartPoints on all 3 MyWW Plans. That equates to approximately .5 SmartPoints per egg bite.

Now, you must be asking yourself, “Wait, don’t I get points from the everything but the bagel seasoning?” Yes you do, BUT…you get 1 SmartPoint (on all 3 plans) for 1 Tablespoon of the seasoning.

This helps with the calculations of bringing the egg bites up a tiny fraction of a point. You can count them as zero points, since you’re not going to eat them all in one sitting…hopefully. No judgement if you do, they’re your points!
