If you are anything like me, you could win a gold medal for on the go eating. Between bringing kids to school early in the morning, afternoon sports, and evening meetings we all seem to be pressed for time. It makes eating healthy quite a difficult task. Fortunately there are a few recipes I keep in my back pocket that help take the guesswork out of at least one meal of the day: breakfast! This is one of those recipes which also happen to be gluten free, keto friendly, budget friendly, and oh so easy to make.
These days everyone is familiar with the famous Starbucks egg bites. They are cute, portable, and great for on the go eating. Recently though, I did take a glance at the nutrition facts and realized that although they are gluten free, they contain a lot of questionable ingredients. Maltodextrin, canola oil, and “bioengineered food ingredients”. No thank you!!! Once this came to light I set out to create a very simple low carb sous vide recipe that would rival the famous brands egg bites and I was completely successful. These egg bites have a wonderful fluffy texture and are loaded with all of your favorite breakfast flavors like bacon and cheese! The best part? You can make them ahead of time and take them with you on the go anytime, anywhere.
