Servings: 4 servings
- 6 large eggs if your eggs are on the small size you might need 7 or 8
- ¼ cup coconut milk Raw milk works too if that is what you have. If you are using duck eggs, I have found that I like using a bit more milk since they are denser – use more like heaping 1/4 cup if you are using duck eggs
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ cup diced bell pepper
- ¼ cup chopped baby spinach
- 1-2 slices of bacon cooked and chopped
Fill the liner of your Instant Pot with 1 cup of water, and set the Trivet at the bottom. Butter four 8oz wide mouth mason jars or ramekins<. I think coconut oil or ghee would work here if you can’t have butter. I did try avocado oil spray once and felt like it stuck to the mason jars more just FYI.
Whisk the eggs, milk, oil, and seasonings until frothy. I have been whisking everything in my 4-cup liquid measuring cup so it is easy to pour into the jars.
Whisk in the veggies and bacon, and then pour the egg mixture into the mason jars or ramekins, dividing it equally between the 4 jars.
Set the mason jars on the trivet in the Instant Pot, close the lid, seal the valve, and press “Manual.” Keep the pressure at “High,” and bring the time down to 5 minutes. The Instant Pot will automatically turn on, coming to pressure within a few minutes, and then will count down the 5 minutes. When the timer beeps that the 5 minutes is done, you can release the pressure at the valve and open the lid. Use tongs to take the jars out. The jars and ramekins are cool enough to touch within a few minutes of being out of the IP.
At this point, you can either lid your egg cups for on-the-go, eat them right there, or you can slide them out for either eating, or freezer storage. To freeze the egg frittatas, slide the egg out and let it cool completely before putting them into freezer bags.
