INSTRUCTIONS: 

Add 1 cup water to Instant Pot and place the trivet (that came with your Instant Pot) inside.

Add eggs, monterey jack, and cottage cheese to a blender and process until smooth (about 30 seconds). Add green onion, red pepper and spinach and give it a quick pulse to combine.

Divide the egg mixture evenly between the compartments of the silicone mold, tightly cover with aluminum foil. 

Lower the silicone mold into the Instant Pot. It’s a bit of a tight squeeze, but with the 6-quart Instant Pot, it fit perfectly.

Place the lid on the Instant Pot and be sure that the vent is set to sealing. Press the MANUAL (high pressure) button and set the timer to 10 minutes. It will take about 5 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to full pressure, then the display will show a countdown timer.

Once the cooking time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, and then release any remaining pressure before opening the Instant Pot.

Remove the silicone mold from the Instant Pot and allow the egg bites to cool for a few minutes before enjoying.
