Starbucks egg bites are known as sous vide eggs and they come in packages of two eggs. Though similar to omelets, they come shaped like muffins. This breakfast option is not made at Starbucks. Instead, the coffee house partnered with Cuisine Solutions who are the pioneers of the sous vides cooking method, to provide egg bites and satisfy their customers every day.
Sous vide is a French word to mean ‘under vacuum’. This is how the egg bites are made. They are interestingly cooked as they are completely sealed and then heated in water until they are well cooked. A machine called sous vide machine or immersion circulator or toaster oven, is normally used and it keeps the water at the right temperature so that the egg bites cook slowly and right.
The egg bites are put in the toaster oven for 10 to 12 minutes at 400°F. Then, they are placed on a skillet for three minutes on each side over medium heat. Eventually, they are put in a microwave for a minute and left to cool before serving. This method gives the eggs a fluffy feel and keeps the customers coming.
