These easy and delicious bacon gouda and spinach egg bites are the perfect make ahead treat to have on deck. Extra filling and loaded with ample flavor; they’re the most amazing little bite sized breakfast!
Lately I’ve been on a real big meal prep kick. I love waking up and having ready-made options just awaiting me in the refrigerator/freezer. Listen, ain’t nothing better than being so dang hungry and then remembering that you prepped some stuff ahead of time. Seriously one of the best surprises when you wake up or after a long day when you don’t wanna cook a thing. These bacon gouda and spinach egg bites are my latest fave.
Have y’all ever had the egg bites from those chain coffee shops or anywhere else? I was previously obsessed with Starbucks‘ bacon and gruyere egg bites and had to have them 24/7. Legit every single time that I went to grab some coffee/tea, I ordered their egg bites. Then I realized how easy they are to make at home and have been loving this recipe so much so that I make a batch of them every week. Let me tell you about them!

What You’ll Need For These Egg Bites
(Note: the full ingredients list, including measurements, is provided in the recipe card directly below.)
- large eggs
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper

What I love most about these egg bites is how easy and flavorful they are, simplicity and taste in every bite! The added seasoning of garlic powder gives these egg bites more flavor than what salt/pepper does alone. If you like a touch of heat, crushed red pepper adds some spice. Additionally, smoked gouda cheese is so nice. There is melty cheese pockets throughout these bites filled with that rich, nutty, and smoky flavor. Spinach adds some freshness and nutritional value. And lastly, good ole bacon, gives this gem some filling heartiness.

How To Store/Meal Prep Egg Bites
I could not recommend the FoodSaver® VS3182 Multi-Use Food Preservation System along with the Microwaveable Meal Prep Bags enough. They will keep your egg bites fresh with no freezer burn and ready to reheat within no time! Such a great quality investment but no worries if this isn’t an option.
Here are some additional ways to keep them fresh; store your egg bites in a large resealable plastic bag (I would double bag them for good measure to avoid any odors/freezer burn!) Also, you can keep them stored in an airtight container or a mason jar fitted with a snug lid. These bacon gouda and spinach egg bites will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days for maximum freshness. Alternatively, store them in the freezer for up to two months. When ready to cook, simply reheat the egg bites in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
