Just when we were majorly bumming about the fact that our red cups and gingerbread lattes were no more, Starbucks is dropping a brand new breakfast item to save the day - and it looks super fancy.
Cosmopolitan reports that our fave coffee spot just announced its new Sous Vide Egg Bites, which are basically fancy little round omlets packed with some pretty delicious fillings. The new menu item (which will be sold in packs of two) will come in two different versions: Bacon and Gruyere and Egg White and Roasted Pepper for a slightly healthier option. The brand describes them as, "A foodie delight, even when you're on the go," and since they're protein-packed and carb-free, they'll make for a full-all-day breakfast option unlike, say, a cake pop or muffin.
That just leaves one question - so what is "sous vide" exactly? Sous vide is a culinary technique in which eggs are cooked in a vaccum-sealed bag put in hot water. It helps protect a food's flavor from getting lost in the cooking process, and besides that, it just makes your morning feel a little more fancy.
Starbucks obsessives, mark your calendars: the Sous Vide Egg Bites will hit Starbucks stores for us to try on January 10.
