The popularity of egg bites began in the late 2010’s when popular coffee chain Starbucks launched them as part of their quick breakfast options. Since then, egg bites have made their way into the weekly rotation of many people — especially those that are often on the go. So — get ready to enjoy these cupcake-sized kale and mushroom egg bites as a delicious breakfast for immediate enjoyment and/or meal prepping.

How To Make Kale & Mushroom Egg Bites

These copycat Starbucks egg bites take only 30 minutes to make— so get them prepped and into the oven, then get ready for your day as they bake. When you come back, they’ll be hot and ready for breakfast!

  • Prep the oven and pan: Preheat the oven and spray the muffin tin with cooking oil.
  • Sauté the veggies: In a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the mushrooms until soft. Then, add the kale and cook until soft.
  • Blend the eggs and cheese: Crack the eggs into a blender, add in the cheeses and the garlic parsley salt, then blend together.
  • Fill the muffin tin: Pour the egg mixture into the prepared muffin tin. Leave room at the top for the veggie mixture.
  • Top with the veggies: Spoon the sautéed veggies on top of each egg bite and gently mix to combine.
  • Bake: Bake the bites at 350°F on the middle rack for about 20 minutes, or until fully cooked through.

Tips For the Best Kale & Mushroom Egg Bites

If you’ve ever tried the Starbucks kale and mushroom egg bites, you know how tasty they are. These homemade one’s will taste even better — and at a fraction of the cost!

  • Avoid mixing the veggies with the eggs prematurely: Although it may seem faster, it is best to wait to mix the veggies into the egg mixture. This way, the veggies stay on the top half of the egg bite and slowly move down through as it cooks, rather than immediately settling in the very bottom.
  • Use a blender: It may be easier and less dishes to wash if you don’t use a blender, but then you’ll miss the velvety texture of the eggs. Use a large mixing bowl and an immersion blender for the same result.
  • Opt for a silicone muffin pan: For egg bites that pop right out with no mess, use a silicone muffin mold.
  • Watch for the golden brown color: Egg bites are done when the tops are set, turn golden brown, and begin to slightly pull away from the mold.

Flavor & Ingredient Variations

Kale and mushrooms are the stars of these egg bites (aside from the eggs), but why not add a few co-stars to really amp up this production? Check out some of our favorites below.

  • Cheese: Change up the cheese and use your favorite cheesy favorites for a nuance of flavor and even more melty goodness. Mozzarella cheese, Swiss cheese, Monterey Jack cheese — the possibilities are endless.
  • Heat: For a moderate kick of heat, add about a teaspoon of hot sauce and/or a pinch of red pepper flakes.
  • Veggies: To incorporate even more veggies, opt for sautéed onions or red bell peppers.
  • Meat: For all you meat lovers, we understand the need to have meat in your breakfast bites. Add finely diced cooked bacon, ham, or sausage for extra protein.
  • Seasoning: To add a burst of flavor with the seasonings in your cupboard, opt for black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, or any of your favorites.

Serving Egg Bites

Egg bites are typically served for breakfast or brunch like most egg-based foods. Enjoy this low-carbohydrate, high protein meal along with a side of pico de gallo or avocado toast. For a more sweet and fruity option, enjoy a cup of easy chia pudding or sweet cheese blintzes (crepes) topped with loads of berries.

Storing & Reheating Egg Bites

One of the biggest reasons we love egg bites is how easy they are to make and store for a quick on-the-go breakfast. Enjoy them now, months later, or anywhere in between.

  • Refrigerator: Store egg bites for up to four days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Freezer: Freeze cooked and cooled egg bites for three months. Place the bites into a freezer safe bag and freeze.
  • Reheat: To reheat the egg bites, wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave until heated through. Do this with either fresh or frozen bites, but keep in mind the frozen ones will take a little longer to heat.
