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 in to something like these Ham & Cheese Egg Muffins which are a bit more substantial.
- 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. I filled them to just below the rim and they puffed up some, but not too much.
- 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.
Egg bites are ready in 7-10 minutes, depending on how cold your ingredients are when you started.
Yes! But you’ll need to cook each batch separately.
Each serving is two egg bites, and it has 3 net carbs.

- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

- Divide the bacon, onion, and cheese, between the cups, careful not to overfill.
- Top up with the remaining custard.
- Bake in Dash Egg Bite Maker for about 7 minutes or until cooked through.
