How to Make Starbucks Bacon Egg Bites

Step 1: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray. Get the diced bacon cooked to crisp and set aside on paper towels to absorb excess grease. 

Step 2: Using a food processor (recommended) or a blender, blend the cottage cheese for about 1 minutes or until it’s whipped smooth with no curds. Into the same food processor, add in the eggs, gruyere, hot sauce, salt/pepper, and cornstarch. Blend until combined and smooth.

Step 3: Get a pot or kettle of water boiled on the stove and pour it into a casserole dish placed on the bottom rack in the oven, enough water to come halfway up the pan. Close the oven immediately to capture the steam inside.

Step 4: Divide the egg mixture evenly among each cavity in the muffin pan, filling them almost to the top. Add a generous pinch of cheese to each muffin, using a spoon to push the cheese to the center. Top each cup with a generous amount of bacon. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set and no longer giggly.
