Breakfast Egg Bites Recipe
Inspired by Starbucks egg bites, these Wonton Egg Bites are full of your favorite breakfast flavors and are super easy to make.
A few months ago, I tried the Starbucks egg bites for the first time while I was staying in Florida for a few months. They quickly became a daily ritual for me because I was obsessed after my first bite.
I knew I had to recreate them at home! My favorite part about the Starbucks egg bites was that they would just get slightly crispy on the bottom after they were reheated. No copycat recipe will give them that little crunch unless you air fried them afterwards or maybe pan seared them.
But who wants an extra step?
I am really big on textures, but didn’t want to add an extra step. That’s where the wonton wrappers come in!
This egg bite recipe brings in the familiar and satisfying breakfast flavors with a wonton twist for incredible texture, balance, and taste.
Meal prep these for busy weekdays or kids!
What do Egg bites taste like?
If you love breakfast egg bites or quiche, you are going to live the flavor! This quick breakfast option is truly everything you love about breakfast in 1 … maybe 2, bite!
The wonton adds the perfect crunch without taking over the entire dish.
Wonton Egg Bite Ingredients
Wonton wrappers: for this recipe, I picked up wonton wrappers from my local grocery store. You can typically find them in the refrigerated section near the tofu.
Eggs: with 8 large eggs, this recipe will make 24 egg bites; double or triple accordingly.
Veggies: I am partial to asparagus stalks (sliced thin) and green onions in my eggs for breakfast. However, feel free to swap this with any veggie like mushrooms, spinach, etc.
When swapping veggies, make sure you dice them small so you get some in each bite and they cook through all the way.
Cheese: Gruyere cheese adds the perfect flavor balance to these egg bites. Looking to experiment with cheeses? Try sharp cheddar cheese, gouda cheese, and Havarti cheese as well!
Milk: I used whole milk for this recipe because I like the fluff that comes from using full-fat milk. However, you can substitute with your preference of milk like: almond milk, skim milk, etc.

How to Make Egg Bites
1. Prepare the wonton wrappers. Preheat the oven and lightly spray a 12 cup muffin tin (you can also use a silicone muffin tin) with olive oil and place two wonton wrappers in each cup. Rotate each wonton wrapper slightly to cover the whole cup.
2. Whisk the eggs. Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl until bubbles form on top.
3. Make the egg bites. Divide the onion, asparagus, and gruyere cheese between wonton cups. Then pour the egg mixture in. Careful not to overfill the wonton cups, they will puff up a bit while cooking.
4. Bake the egg bites. Reduce the oven temperature and bake the egg bites for 15 minutes or until the center has set. When finished, remove from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes before carefully removing them from the pan.
5. Serve. Garnish with green onions and toppings of your choice.
How do you refrigerate egg bites?
Egg bites are easy to make and even easier to refrigerate and re-heat when you need them.
Store your leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3-5 days. If you are going to exceed 5 days, I recommend freezing them in snack size freezer bags and pulling them out as needed.
Customize your Egg Bites
I love egg bites because they are so easily customizable. Whether you are making a variety for yourself for breakfast meal prep or hosting a brunch, you can easily shake things up by splitting up the muffin pan(s) and getting a little taste of everything. Below are some other ways I like to customize and change up my egg bites:
- Everything bagel seasoning
- Hot sauce
- Balsamic glaze
- Hollandaise sauce
- Tomatoes and feta
- Bacon and cheese
- Meat lovers dream; bacon, sausage, and onion
- Mushrooms and onion
- Sausage and bell peppers
Questions You Might Have
Your wonton egg bites will last in an air tight fridge storage container for about 3-5 days or frozen for 1 month.
If you are looking to reheat your egg bites, I recommend using the air fryer or the oven. I do not recommend the microwave as your wonton cups will get soggy and your eggs will taste spongey.
Air fryer: 325 F for 3-4 minutes
Oven: 325 6-8 mins
Sous vide egg bites (a title paired with all Starbucks egg bites) are little egg soufflés. They are very similar to egg bites, but usually more airy in texture.
