If you’re a frequent visitor of Starbucks (or even if you’re not) you are likely aware of the latest addition to their menu, simply because customers can’t get enough of them. The phrase ‘flying off the shelves’ or in this case, ‘out of the water bath’ has never been so appropriate!
So what is this craze that has taken the coffeehouse giant by storm? Sous Vide Egg Bites are a delicious alternative to traditional breakfasts and have hit the right note with consumers looking for a healthier, or bread-free start to their day. Having listened to their customers and researched the latest trends, Starbucks spotted a need for a protein-rich breakfast that can easily be adapted to suit most diets or dietary restrictions. Of course, flavour couldn’t be compromised and we can vouch that this is definitely not the case with these flavoursome egg bites, mostly thanks to the precision behind the sous vide technique.
For many it will be their first experience of food cooked in a water bath, and its instant popularity proves that the sous vide method really is quite special. Everyday eggs are transformed into creamy, perfectly cooked bites of perfection that actually taste more indulgent than a healthy breakfast should!
We’ve recreated two of their most popular flavours into recipes that you can try at home, meaning you can skip the queue and save the pennies. Alternatively, why not experiment with some of your own favourite ingredients. If you find something that works just as well we’d love to hear about it.
