Can I steam these in a pot of boiling water on the stove top or bake them in a muffin pan? Thanks.
To make these in the oven you can fill a 9×11 baking dish halfway with water and place a silicone muffin pan overtop. Fill the muffin cups with the egg mixture and bake at 350°F for 60 minutes until the eggs are set. I would not recommend steaming them on the stovetop because you cannot control the temperature of the water. You can also cook them in a pressure cooker.

Can these be frozen?
Yes, you can freeze these and then store in an airtight container or bag with as much air removed as possible. Just warm in the microwave for 1 – 2 minutes.
You can freeze the egg bites for up to 2 to 3 months and reheat them in a microwave or air fryer. It’s best to defrost them before reheating.
