Prosciutto-wrapped Egg Bites (Instant Pot)

Prosciutto-wrapped Egg Bites for breakfast
A tasty bite-sized breakfast of egg wrapped in prosciutto and filled with broccolini, baby spinach, and cheddar cheese, or whatever veggies you like.

This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes. Make these tasty prosciutto-wrapped egg bites on the weekend to have a quick grab-and-go breakfast to eat during the work week.

I use prosciutto to amp up the flavor. Then I add lots of my favorite veggies, depending on what is on hand or is in season. I have been known to add artichoke hearts, and sun dried tomato at times! Use your favorites, since it’s all about making something that you’ll wake up to and say ‘yum!’ (and grab this instead of a more fattening pastry.)

Egg Bites for everyone

They are suggestions based of what I have found to be helpful, and so I’ve shared that info. If you have similar items, you are certainly welcome to change it up. Tweak my prosciutto-wrapped egg bites recipe to suit what you have. The instant pot is a great tool for cooking eggs. The high heat and moisture of the steam cook the eggs quickly without drying them out.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices prosciutto cut in half
  • 3 florets brocolini chopped
  • 1 cup baby spinach chopped
  • ¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil cooking spray

Instructions

  • Spray egg bite molds with olive oil baking spray.
  • Cut prosciutto slices in half, and lay each half slice inside a bite cup. Press up against the sides, and fold the tops back over the lip. Don’t worry if the meat splits into two pieces, just lay them both into the cup.

  • Into a glass measuring cup with a pour spout, put 4 eggs, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Add 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese and mix with a fork.
    Keep in mind that the prosciutto is salty on its own, and the instant pot tends to intensify salt flavor, so keep the added salt to a minimum.

  • Add them to the egg mixture as well, and mix with a fork.

  • Pour the egg and veggie mixture into the cups. I like to fill about half way up in each one, stirring with a fork in between, to make sure the veggies get distributed well into each bite.

  • Then use the remaining mixture to fill all the bites evenly. Make sure not to overfill them, since they will puff up a bit when cooking.

  • Close the lid, set the steam release nozzle to the closed position, and set the instant pot to manual high setting for 10 minutes. Leave the pot to do a natural pressure release until the pin drops.
  • Carefully remove the lid and lift the sling out of the pot.

Notes

If you are planning on having them for breakfasts for the week, let them cool and then either wrap individually in plastic wrap (great if taking them to go) or store in a air-tight container in the refrigerator. They are ready to be heated in the microwave for a minute, or eat them cold.
Enjoy!
