Eggs Baked in Bread Bowls

We rarely do breakfasts. None of us are very hungry in the mornings, and it would just be a waste.
This time around, we had been up late the night before. (I don't know about you, but the later I stay up, the hungrier I am the next morning).
We were also having a HUGE eating a breakfast would simply hold us over until dinner time.

I had found this recipe on the Baked Bree website. Thought it would be something different, a neat twist on eggs and toast.

I had bought some rolls at the store. The recipe calls for whole wheat, but I grabbed some Portugese sweet rolls instead. Personal preference.

I cut the rolls, but decided they should be a little deeper and scooped out the insides. Perfect!

For just the 3 of us, I halved the recipe...and forgot all about the chives.
On mine, I added a little cheese under the egg and also sprinkled some dill. The mix and match possibilities are endless.

Hubby and I are planning a brunch, we both decided this would be a great item to make. Different, easy, an you can make as many at once as your oven will hold!

When I was cooking, I started with the original 10 minutes mentioned.
My whites were still raw, raw, raw.
I put some tin foil over the bread as it was quite crunchy, and cooked for an additional 5 and they were perfectly done.

These were so good! Darling daughter is bummed, she slept right through breakfast and into the lunch time hour. You snooze, you lose!

6 Rolls (unsplit)
6 Eggs
6 Tsp cream
6 Tbsp parmesan cheese
3 Tsp fresh chives, chopped

2. Cut a hole out of each roll, reserving the top
3. Crack an egg into each roll
4. Add a tsp of cream, a tbsp parmesan, ½ tsp chives, and ½ tsp parsley to each.
5. Salt and pepper each egg
6. Bake for 10 minutes.
7. Add bread bowl tops to the oven. Toast for 2 more minutes.



My bread bowls before I scooped out more of the inside.
Note: see three? Before anyone says I starved my girl, notice I had every intention of treating her to breakfast!

The two that were cooked.
Mine is on the left and you can see a bit of the orange from the cheese poking out.
And when the girl child decided to wake...then I made hers!
