Pour the egg mixture into each mold.
Cover both molds with aluminum foil.
Place the trivet inside the vessel. Add 1 cup of water to your Instant Pot.
Put the egg molds on the trivet in the vessel. Both silicone molds will cook together. Place one mold on top of the other.
Put the lid on the Instant Pot. Close the sealing valve.
Set the Instant Pot to “High Pressure” for 12 minutes.
Once cooking is complete, do a manual release.
Carefully remove the egg molds (use heat resistant mitts or towel as the molds will be hot), and transfer to a cooling rack.
Once the bites have cooled, flip the molds upside down, and push on each mold to pop out the eggs.

A 6-quart Instant Pot is what we use to test this recipe.Note 1: There are a few options for the eggs, If you need a low cholesterol option to make these eggs, use 2 cups of egg beaters instead of the eggs. To replace eggs with egg whites, use 2 egg whites for every 1 egg. If using a carton of egg whites ¼ cup of egg whites equals one egg. Note 2: Other cheese suggestions are Monterey Jack, Swiss, Gruyere, and feta.Note 3: After recipe testing, we found that that the filling sunk to the bottom when added after blending. Mix in any of your filling before blending ensures the filling is throughout the eggs. When adding any veggies to this recipe, I'd recommend sautéing them first and then adding into the egg mixture.
Depending on your likes and cholesterol level, the eggs can be swapped for egg beaters, or a mix of eggs with egg whites.
If replacing whole eggs with egg white, use 2 egg whites for 1 egg.
If using Egg Beaters, ¼ cup of egg beaters is equal to 1 egg.
The "Starbucks" recipes uses egg whites, cottage cheese, roasted red peppers, Monterey Jack, and Gruyère cheese. When I make this variation, we use ½ cup of cottage cheese
Spinach, Roasted Red Peppers, and Feta cheese.
Chopped Kale, Feta Cheese, Roasted Peppers.
Vary the protein with any of these choices such as diced ham, cooked crumbled breakfast sausage, or crumbled tofu.
Some other cheese to try can be Parmesan, Swiss, Gruyère, Monterey Jack, Feta, and Goat cheese.
