Savory with bacon and rich gruyere flavor, these are easy enough to make for every day but something you could serve to guests for a decadent brunch. I like to make an entire package of bacon anytime I make it by laying it on a parchment-lined baking tray and baking at 400ºF/205ºC for 16 - 20 minutes, but you'll only need 3 pieces for this recipe. Keep extra on hand for other days, or when you're ready to make more egg bites!

Ingredients for 6

  • 6 eggs

  • 1/2 c grated gruyere

  • 1/4 c neufchatel/cream cheese/dairy free cream cheese option

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 3 slices cooked bacon, cut in halves

  • Extra Equipment: 6 4oz/125ml canning jars with 2-part screw-on lids


    Step 1

    Set your Anova Precision Cooker for 172ºF/77.8ºC

  • Step 2

    In a blender or food processor, combine eggs, cheeses (or other optional dairy like cream), and salt until smooth

  • Step 3

    Place your jars on a work surface and push a half-slice of bacon into the bottom of each one

    Step 4

    Divide the egg & cheese mixture evenly among the jars

    Step 5

    Attach two-part lids and close to fingertip tightness. This means using only your fingertips to screw on the ring; if they are too tight, the air pressure within will not be able to release and the jars will shatter on the bath

  • Step 6

    Once closed, submerge the jars in the water bath and set your timer for 1 hour

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 0

      Remove from the bath and enjoy straight from the jar if desired! You can also slide a butter knife around the edge, pushing gently inwards as you do so to loosen the base. Invert jar onto heat-safe surface and either sear with a torch or place under broiler for a few minutes for color.

    • Step 1



  • 6 Eier
  • 3-4 EL Frischkäse
  • 2 EL geriebenen Käse (z.B. Ementaler)
  • Salz (und ggfs. andere Gewürze)
  • Speck


Zeit und Temperatur:

1 Std. bei 77,8 °C


  • Funktioniert auch gut mit Weck Gläsern
    6 Eier reichen für 4 Weckgläser (klein)
  • Statt Gruyere kann auch Ementaler genommen werden.
  • Im Blender ausprobieren, nur Rührschüssel lässt den Ementaler fasrig.
  • Wenn die Weckgläser ins Waserbad kommen dafür sorgen, dass diese nicht schwimmen/kippen können.
