Egg Bites Recipe

Do we really want to know all or it’s better to stay in the dark? Let’s make some tasty egg bites to enlighten our days!

Ignorance is a bliss as we all know it very well since Thomas Gray coined the term a couple of centuries ago.

Are the ignorant fools really blessed?

He wasn’t the only one who thought of having less, leads to a more prosperous life as even the Bible has passages about it from Matthew:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Although it seems that the two sentences are somewhat similar in nature, they are touching on different parts of the human soul. Also, it’s worth to highlight that despite centuries old fight against knowledge by the church, the Bible actually promotes knowledge because “People die for lack of knowledge”.

Are egg bites blessed?

Probably the church’s policy on knowledge similar as to the food industry. They want us to know about crepes but only as much that we want them but not so much that we may realize that we can just as easily make them at home from flour and water as from the overpriced crepe mix (Don’t even mention crepes to-go).

At least crepes could keep their name and they didn’t go through a renaming process to be called sweet discs or something similar as it happened with the egg bites when it became part of the starry bucket family. Many of us only know it as omelet with a dash of milk or cream while some of us, with a dip in the keto world, could recognize it as crustless quiche or egg muffin.

What’s the difference?

The difference between egg bites and egg muffin is so thin that it may not even exist. Well, maybe it does in a shape of muffin forms.

Making egg muffins implies that we use a muffin form to fill the eggs in and bake them but with egg bites, we have no such requirement, hence we can make them in anything that will bear the heat in the oven without deforming.

Of course, many of us have some sort of expectations already. Most likely it is not because we’ve been fed with this basic, yet nutritious breakfast since we are kids, but rather because as egg bites are one of the Starbucks widely popular breakfasts.

What’s in egg bites?

Amazing how a bit of potato starch with a bunch of unpronounceable ingredients and food preserving technique makes people crazy, yet the popularity of basic omelets is nowhere to be found.

Luckily, egg bites also managed to keep carbs level fairly low so those on keto and Starbucks breakfast have their lucky match made among the stars.

For the rest of us who are far from such conveniences but want to live a life full of excitement and glamour, there is a hope too. Starbucks egg bites can be made at home without much more effort than making an egg omelet if we aren’t too picky about it.

What do egg bites need?

A baking tray that will hold the bites will be essential but most likely many of us already acquired one of those half useless muffin baking tray that designed to hold muffins. Lack of them, we can make egg bites in a muffin form, and although they will become egg muffins in the process, their flavor and texture will endure all sort of criticism, maybe even that if someone dares to call them omelets or crustless quiche.Egg muffin recipe - SunCakeMom
