Ingredients Notes and Variations

  • Eggs: The main source of protein in this breakfast recipe is eggs. Be sure to use good-quality organic eggs.
  • Meat: You can add any sort of meat to your egg bites i.e. chicken chunks, sliced sausages, beef mince, leftover shredded chicken or tuna, etc.
  • Vegetables: Any of your favorites! Usually, I load the bites with chopped bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, carrots, jalapenos, and olives, and it’s up to you to add more or skip a few. Spinach and zucchini make great fillings too.
  • Cheese: The best cheese to top up your bites is the shredded Cheddar Cheese. You can also replace it with Monterey Jack or Feta Cheese.
  • Sour cream: It enhances the taste and thickness of the egg mixture. You can also use a bit of Greek yogurt as a replacement.
  • Herbs and Seasonings: Use sea salt, black pepper, chili powder, Italian seasoning, dried oregano, dried basil, or thyme as per your preferences.
  • Black Olives (optional). To make them look more like Pizza, add some sliced black olives after adding a final layer of cheese.

How to make Egg Bites in an Air Fryer?

In a mixing bowl, crack 3 to 4 eggs and whisk them lightly. Add sour cream or Greek yogurt as per your preference. You can skip it if you are cutting on calories.

Add salt, black pepper, chili powder, Italian seasonings, and any other seasoning of your choice. Mix well.

Whisk eggs and ingredients to make Egg Bites

Take some muffin liners and layer them with the meat of your choice. This can include chicken chunks, beef mince, or small turkey slices. Tuna also makes egg bites taste nicer./

Add a second layer of your favorite shredded cheese. I prefer to add a mix of both cheddar and mozzarella, but it is up to you.

Next, add on some sliced jalapenos, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, green onions, or any vegetables of your choice. Be sure to cut these into small pieces.
