I discovered a way to make mornings brighter with the new Hamilton Beach Egg Bites Maker! I no longer need to worry about heading to the local coffee shop, becuase I can recreate coffee shop egg bites right at home.
This cute countertop cooker lets you poach two eggs or create two egg bites for breakfast, lunch, or any time.
A Labour of Life was provided with a sample to test out. All reviews contained withn are based on our use of the machine, from my kitchen to yours.
Hamilton Beach Egg Bites Maker
The Hamilton Beach Egg Bites Maker is so very easy for anyone to use. Add a specfic amount of water, cover, plug in and wait for the light to turn off. Easy Peasy for all ages.
It’s a handy little appliance for protein-packed snacks or meals that are sure to satisfy. It’s also a great cooking companion for those with specialized diets such as vegetarian, paleo or keto. I was contacted back in June to see if I was interested in trying out the machine. And truth be told after over two months in lockfown I was ready to experiment.
For me it’s a quick have a healthy breakfast at coffee break with no pre-planning. This handy little machine sure got a workout this summer. Eggs anyone?
How to Make Eggs
As I mentioned this handy little machine only needs a bit of water to create the magic. Truly when I say minimal I mean it, depending on how you like your eggs you use 50 to 80 mm of water. I favour a softer runnier yolk so I ony use minimal water in my machine.
Poached or egg bites, both are delicious. Hard or soft poached and the bites well what flavours or seasoning do you like? The flavour combinations are endless! Customize eggs bites with any ingredients like bacon and cheese or red pepper and spinach. For a healthy twist try egg whites only, or add a little bit of cream cheese to replicate the creamy texture of café-style egg bites.
Features of the Egg Maker
According to Hamilton Beach the features are pretty awesome and according to A Labour of LIfe, well I have to agree.
- MAKES PERFECT EGG BITES — COMPARE TO COFFEE SHOP EGG BITES. I do find the morsels tasty for sure but my preference is the poached,
- CREATE ENDLESS FLAVOR OPTIONS AND FRESH, PRESERVATIVE-FREE INGREDIENTS: true and adding the cream cheese was amazeballs, I kid you not.
- ENJOY CONSISTENT RESULTS EVERY TIME. and once you figure out your preference, perfect everytime. I actually use a tad under the 50 mm for real soft yolks.
- EGG COOKER WITH NONSTICK EGG BITE/POACHING TRAY. easily wipes clean after each use
- POWER AND COOKING LIGHTS. gree and red lights and once the turn off you are done.
- COMES IN SUNNY YELLOW OR VIBRANT TEAL (ok I added that one myself but its a real feature to me)
My Perfect Poached Egg
This is my standrad breakfast/ Poached egg bites on toast. Add a touch of salt and pepper and maybe some Heartbeat Hot Sauce. 10 mnutes to a hot and healthy breakfast.
Plus there is a cute little recipe book with the kit that outlines the exact amount of water you need for soft, medium or hard poached.
Tip: If cooking a second batch and Egg Bite Maker is hot, add an additional 10 mL of water or your eggs make not cook properly.
