Just another (Egg) Bite

I know there is the original egg-bite thread, but I thought it would be good to have a repository for everyone’s favourite Egg Bite creations. I’m sure by now we’ve all tried the classic Bacon Bites, but what’s your latest creation?

I’ll kick things off with today’s effort.

To the usual 6 eggs I added 1/4 cup of chicken stock and 1/4 cup of cream and 1/4 cup of cream cheese, salt and pepper.

To the jars I added asparagus that had been lightly blanched and refreshed in ice water and cut into small pieces.Also a little red capsicum/bell pepper and a little onion both finely chopped and sweated in some olive oil.

To do them again I think I’d ditch the cream cheese in favour of more chicken stock.


Let’s add another one to the collection.

Onion jam and goat’s cheese. I didn’t manage to get the onion quite as jammy as I’d normally like, but the sweetness is there. A splash of balsamic in the onion to finish and the slight tang of a young goat cheese in the egg mix counter the onion sweetness nicely.

Yum! Looks delish.

By the way - how did you make the onion jam?

The onion jam is just a simple slow caramelisation of the onions. When they’re gooey and sticky enough I add a dash of balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan a bit and balance the sweetness.

I was given a tip from an Indian grandmother to speed up the cooking process on the onions. When you add your onions to the pan add a little water too. The onions can’t caramelise until the sugars are converted, which happens as they cook. The water will steam the onions, speeding up the cooking process a bit. The onions will then start to brown once the water has evaporated.
