Perfect results in a few simple steps.
Ingredients for 6
1/4 c creme fraiche
1/4 c cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fresh or frozen peas
2 Tablespoons finely chopped shallot
2 Tablespoons finely chopped mint
3/4 cup crumbled feta
Cracked black pepper to taste
Extra equipment: 6 4 oz/125 ml canning jars with metal lids
Set your Anova Precision Cooker to 170ºF/76.7ºC
In a blender, mix the eggs, creme fraiche, cream cheese, and salt
In a small bowl, combine the peas, mint, feta crumbles, and shallot and mix with a fork
Lay 6 jars out on a work surface and divide liquid between them
Divide pea mixture between jars
Attach lids to fingertip tightness. This means using only the pressure of your fingertips to close the jar, leaving it just a little loose, to allow the air pressure to be able to be released while in the bath. This will prevent both jar failure and water from getting into your ingredients
Place in the bath and set timer for 1 hour
Remove from the bath with tongs and enjoy straight from the jar or slide a knife around the edge, pressing gently inwards to loosen. Invert on a plate and with a swift downward jerking motion holding onto plate and jar at the same time, pop the egg bite out of the jar. You can either reheat and/or brown in a toaster oven, under a broiler, or with a torch. Bon appetit!
