Our sweet potato egg bites offer a fun way to incorporate more veggies into your meal. In this recipe, we guide you through making our breakfast in a jar using the sous vide method of cooking. Sous vide, which means “under vacuum” in French, refers to the process of vacuum-sealing food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature in a water bath. We use jars rather than bags as you can see in the steps below.
