  • ¼ Cup Heavy Cream
  • ¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Green Onion, chopped

    Butter or spray each egg bite mold. Add about 1 Tablespoon of the cooked Chorizo into each egg bite mold and sprinkle in chopped Green Onions. Place 3 Large Eggs, 1 Cup of Shredded Cheddar, ¼ Cup Heavy Cream, ¼ Teaspoon Kosher Salt into a blender and blend for about 10-20 seconds. Fill each mold about 75% full. Cover the top well with foil or use a silicone lid if you have one.

    Pour 1½ Cups of Water into the Instant Pot and put the trivet into the pot, place the egg bite mold on top of the trivet and seal the lid. Choose STEAM for 7 Minutes and when the timer is up, wait 10 Minutes before switching the knob to venting. Remove the mold and let them cool for about 5 Minutes before serving. Garnish with more chopped green onions or chives, they are wonderful with Air Fried Breakfast Potatoes (recipe here). Enjoy!

    Thanks for the recipe. Pretty easy, and yummy. For anyone else making this a few notes: do not fill more than the recommended 75%. I did and the grease from the chorizo overflowed. Not a big deal other than it was messy. I do also suggest mixing the chorizo in with the egg after you pour the ingredients. I used the exact instapot silicone mold that was in this recipe And when my eggs were finished there was still quite a bit of chorizo left in the bottom of the silicone mold, I had to scoop it out. I believe giving it a quick stir so the egg can be a binder for the chorizo to the rest of it will help. I also decided to saute yellow onions while cooking my chorizo instead of using green onions. It was awesome, and the 7 minutes on steam was perfect timing!
