It’s official — back to school season is here. If you’re struggling with regaining a morning routine, you are not alone. But I have a (partial) solution! An easy breakfast hack to make mornings run a little bit smoother. These super delicious, easy Instant Pot Egg Bites are perfect! In fact, they can be made on the weekend and ready for those busy school mornings!
What you’ll need
First and foremost, you’ll need an Instant Pot or another electric pressure cooker. If you’ve been around here a bit, you’ll know I use my Instant Pot for basically everything. It’s a lifesaver — especially if you’re short on time. For a batch of egg bites (similar to those you would get at Starbucks), they will cost you just a few dollars to make. And you’ll have breakfast for a week!
Here’s what else you’ll need:
- a dozen eggs (or eggbeaters as a substitute!)
- cheddar cheese
- a few slices of bacon
- optional: green onions and salsa
That’s it! Budget friendly and quick!
