Ingredients

  • 1 strip bacon, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 pieces button mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 sweet pepper, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar Jack cheese

Instructions

  • In a wide pan over medium heat, add bacon. Cook until it begins to brown and render fat. Remove excess grease except for about 1 tablespoon.
  • Add onions, mushrooms, and sweet peppers. Cook, stirring regularly until softened.
  • Add spinach and continue to cook just until wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a blender, combine eggs, cottage cheese, and milk.  Process until smooth and well-blended.
  • Lightly grease the insides of the silicone mold by brushing with melted butter or spraying with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place about 1 teaspoon of the vegetable mixture into each hole. 
  • Carefully pour egg-milk mixture into each hole and using a fork, gently stir to distribute evenly.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of egg mixture.
  • Pour about 1 1/2 to 2 cups water in the Instant Pot, place the steamer rack, and then position the silicone mold on top of the rack.
  • Close lid, making sure the valve is at SEALING position. Cook on HIGH pressure for 10 minutes and when Instant Pot beeps, allow a natural release for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the silicone mold from the pot and remove egg bites from the mold. Serve hot.
