HomeMade Egg bites

Instant Pot Egg Bites

Have you tried the Sous Vide egg bites at Starbucks? Well, these Instant Pot Egg Bites are soooo much cheaper and just as yummy!

You can whip these up in just a few minutes and have them all week long. It’s a great option for when you are all running out the door!

I love eggs, but, sometimes it’s just not practical to get a pan out and fix up eggs in any form, on busy mornings. But with this Instant Pot Egg Bites recipe, It makes it as simple as just grabbing one out of the fridge on the way out! I’ve even seen some people stack these egg bites mold to make twice as much at a time. ( I would just add a minute or two to the cooking time, if you are stacking the molds)

HomeMade Egg bites
This batch was made with just 3 eggs, making them a little more squashed

You can make these anyway you like your eggs, I enjoy them with a little spinach, ham and cheese!

You can also try:

  • sausage
  • Bacon
  • tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • asparagus
  • peppers and onions

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

I know we are heading into Spring, but we have had a few cold rainy days still. So, this cozy stew was perfect! It’s really one of those recipes where anything goes, and if you like more meat or more veggies, whatever you’d like go for it!

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

Really, this recipe is more like a starting place 🙂

I started this recipe with a “block” of frozen stew meat pieces. You can use fresh or frozen.

Dust it with a little flour and saute with some butter in your instant pot. When using thawed meat you can get a nice sear on the meat and it adds some extra flavor. But, even with the frozen this stew ended up being flavorful and tender!

Add a little oil (any you prefer) and add the onion, salt, and pepper. stir. Now just throw in the mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, and butternut squash to the pot!

Pour in 2 cups of beef broth and all the seasonings!

Now it’s time to cook your Instant Pot Butternut Squash Beef Stew

Instant pot Iced tea

Instant Pot Iced Tea

Does your family like iced tea?

 

Probably the easiest recipe to share with you.

Instant pot iced tea

I make this Instant Pot Iced Tea about once a week, especially in the summer. The whole family loves it!

 

Here’s what I do:

5 bags – we like just plain old black tea.. usually grab the Organic Black Tea at walmart!

A whole lot of water

Sweetener of choice – or two 🙂

That’s all!

 

Fill up your instant pot with cold or room temperature filtered water. I usually fill up to the Max line.  Plop those tea bags in (removing the paper tags)

instant pot iced tea

 

 

 

 

 

Close lid and seal. Set to 3 minutes.

This will take a while to heat up, since it’s a lot of water.. I would say about 20 minutes or so.

Once the 3 minutes are up, Manually Release the Pressure.

Fish out the tea bags. Here’s a time saving tip: Tie the tea bags all together and then they are easier to spoon out of the tea.

I let it just set there for awhile to cool a bit.

Now you can sweeten it. If you sweeten it while it is still a bit warm the sugar will dissolve really easily.

I usually take half of it out and then put regular sugar in Mr. Love’s half and our Sugar free natural Sweetener in the other half.

I found these super cute glass jars at Walmart for 3 whole bucks 🙂 and they fit perfectly in the fridge!

Instant pot Iced tea

What ever container you wish to use is fine, your tea is now ready for the fridge!  It really is great tasting tea. If black tea isn’t your thing you can follow this same recipe for green tea.. really any kind you like! 🙂

Instructions
  1. Fill up the IP liner to the max line with water
  2. Add the tea bags. Place lid and set for 3 minutes (making sure valve is set to seal)
  3. When it's come to pressure and cooked for the 3 minutes you can manually release the pressure. fish out the tea bags and discard. I usually leave the lid off and allow it to start to cool.
  4. After it has cooled a little, I take out a portion of the tea out and add my own sweetener to this pitcher (usually about a 4 of a cup of my home made sweet blend) I mix in the cup of regular sugar to the tea remaining in the IP.
  5. allow this to continue to cool. Then I transfer the rest into a bottle or pitcher. Store in the fridge and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

You can change the strength of your tea by adding less or more tea bags.

Make whatever kind of tea you'd like by choosing different flavors of tea bags.

And of course customize your desired level of sweetness.
