Braised Pork Belly Egg Bites are a tasty snack using my braised pork belly recipe. If you love Starbucks sous vide egg bites, this copycat recipe uses savory pork belly along with some kimchi to give it a bit of crunch and spice. If you have other types of protein on hand like Chinese sausage, bacon or leftover chicken, that also works as well.
Instead of using the sous vide method of cooking which can take a long time to cook at low temperatures, my recipe takes the egg bites base of eggs, cottage cheese, shredded cheese along with some other ingredients and blends them together to make a fluffy sous vide like consistency once steamed. Best of all it's only 10 minute prep time!
Tip: Make this in big batches over the weekend for easy grab and go snacking and breakfast. Let cool before storing in the refrigerator.
