I’ll admit that I’m not normally one to buy a small appliance on the promise of making one thing, but this Dash Egg Bite Maker promised to be small (and adorable), functional, with a small footprint, and quick. So, I bought one.

And I’m in love. They taste almost like the Starbucks sous vide egg bites, only a heckuva lot cheaper!

Yup, this chef is in love with her Dash Egg Bite Maker. For my keto lifestyle, this small and affordable appliance is just what I needed. (If you’re looking for other handy keto appliances and gadgets, check out this list of resources.)

Hassle-Free Keto Egg Bites Recipe

I’ve always struggled with breakfast. I stand in front of the fridge and ponder what to eat. Time ticks by, and I’m still pondering. I’ll pick at leftovers – yes, I’ve eaten leftover asparagus for breakfast – and often don’t eat much of anything, which isn’t good for this type 2 diabetic, either.

But I’ve always got eggs on hand, cheese, and meat of some kind. That’s all it takes to make basic keto Egg Bites! You don’t need to get fancy; it doesn’t need to be messy, and in about 10 minutes, you can have something totally keto and totally tasty for breakfast or a keto snack. If you want to try something a wee bit different, check out this recipe for Spinach & Cheese Egg Bites, or dig into something like these Ham & Cheese Egg Muffins, which are a bit more substantial.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • To keep these egg bites from becoming hard egg pucks, add some heavy whipping cream! About a tablespoon per egg will do it.
  • I tested this with both large and extra-large eggs. Two large eggs plus cream and fillings fit almost perfectly in the four egg cups.
  • Egg, then fillings! To keep the egg from sticking to the silicone molds, add the egg custard, then cheese and fillings.
  • Don’t overfill the cups. Fill them just below the rim because they’ll puff up a bit.
  • Make sure your fillings are chopped small. There’s not a lot of room in those cups, so keep things chopped finely.
  • There’s no timer on the Dash Egg Bite Maker, so keep an eye on them. They took about 7 minutes but could take more or less depending on how full they are, how cold the ingredients are, etc. Just poke an egg bite with a knife to see if it is cooked.

  1. I love egg bites! They’re a great way to start the day and even make a healthy snack! These were incredibly easy to make and tasted great!

  2. Mine aren’t custardy like the coffe shop ones. Im still learning how to use it. Did i overcook (10 minutes), or should i have blended the eggs first?

    • Yes, mix the eggs well first and don’t overcook them. I usually poke a knife into the center to make sure they’re just barely done.

    • Hi! I’d follow the Dash maker’s guidelines which say to add 1 scoop (the silicone cup that comes with the machine) of water.

  3. Not understanding how this recipe contains 603kcals. Is a kcal different from a calorie?

    • Robin, thanks for pointing that out! The nutrition calculator was messing up the amount of bacon but it’s all fixed now!

    • It’s all there in the recipe card at the bottom. These instructions are designed for the Dash Egg Bite Maker so you’d need to double or triple the recipe to fill cupcake tins. Hope that helps! ~Jenn
