We took our cheesy egg bite recipe and added savory breakfast sausage for a flavorful and protein-packed breakfast. To account for the extra sausage we dropped the milk from our original recipe while retaining the rest of the ingredients. These breakfast bites are loaded with the same delicious fluffy eggs, gooey cheese, and sour cream as the original, but have the added benefit of flavorful sausage. This recipe will work with any pre-cooked breakfast sausage such as pork, turkey, or vegetarian sausage.
Note: If you would like, add 1-2 tsps homemade Breakfast Sausage Seasoning to add even more flavor to this delicious meal.
Breakfast Sausage Egg Bites

- 2 tsp all purpose flour

1) In a large bowl, whisk together the baking powder, flour, ¼ tsp salt, ¼ tsp ground black pepper, eggs, and sour cream until smooth. Stir in the shredded cheese and breakfast sausage.
2) Spray Suvie egg tray lightly with cooking spray and pour in the egg mixture. Insert egg tray into a Suvie pan, and fill with water. Insert pan into your Suvie, input settings, and cook now or schedule.

Will Suvie keep the egg bites warm once cooked if we aren’t ready to eat them right away?
Hi Alexandra, there will be residual heat in the Suvie after cooking, which should keep the egg bites warm, but I wouldn’t recommend letting them sit more than 30 minutes after cooking. Hope this helps!
Do I have to set the settings for both top and bottom zone if I’m only using the soups vide mode in one of them?
Hi Sam, whatever setting you input for one zone will automatically be set for the other zone. As long as one zone is set for an hour at 175°F then the other zone will also be set for 1 hour at 175°F. Hope that helps!
Ok great. Thank you. Should I leave the other setting also at 175 if nothing is cooking in there.. For examples.. making egg bites in the bottom zone… Is it ok to leave top zone empty at 175?
Hi Sam, yes, you can leave one zone empty even if it is heated to 175°F. The warm water circulates throughout both zones continuously while using the sous vide mode.
I scheduled mine to cook in the morning but woke up early and changed to Cook Now. It now says it’s warming for almost two hours (1:55). Is this normal? Seems like that would not be good for eggs but I’m new to this. Thanks
Hi Cheril, yes that sounds normal. It takes some time to heat the water from refrigerated to 175°F, so I would anticipate it warming up for awhile.
Thank you – one additional question. Using Egg Bite mode only allows one hour of cook time. Does this use Sous Vide mode instead? Thanks in advance. I’m still learning and am a little confused by the different modes.
Hi Cheril, yes, for this recipe the settings are Sous Vide at 175°F for 2 hours. Hope you enjoy the egg bites!
Thanks for your help. These are great!
The cheesy egg bites cook for two hours but this only cooks for one? Is one recipe incorrect?
Hi Emily, good catch, we updated the other recipes and I forgot to update this one as well. I’ve changed the time to 2 hours. Thanks!
Can you get two egg trays and cook 8 bites (4 lower zone, 4 upper zone)?
Yes, you can double this recipe and split between 2 egg trays.
It’s 7:30 pm and My egg bites are almost done, but I’d like to keep them for breakfast in the a.m. how should I reheat them?
Hi Jacquie, you could try using the reheat function. I would take out the egg bites from the molds, place in a greased Suvie pan, and reheat for 20-30 minutes or so.
Egg Bites were perfect! Thank you!!
So what exactly is the difference between “Egg bite” mode at 175 for 1 hour vs “Sous Vide” mode for 2 hours? I’ve been wondering what this mysterious egg bite mode is that noone seems to have ever used.
(Note: not referring to the Suvie brand Breakfast Egg Bites. That’s a 3rd mode, not related.)
Hi Brian, there isn’t a difference between egg bite mode and Sous Vide at 175°F except for the time. We developed this recipe before egg bite mode was fully fledged. You can use either setting. Hope that clarifies the situation.
