Breakfast Egg Boats

My first post…here it goes! I’d have to say that breakfast is not usually my favorite meal of the day, but it is my boyfriend’s.  If anyone has an egg obsession, it’s Paul.  For me eggs are ehhh.  BUT this Sunday while Paul was in town from Chicago I concocted a breakfast both of us loved.  Eggs (for him) in bread (for me).  Throw in some other ingredients and you have a super easy breakfast, that looks fancy enough for a holiday!

Breakfast Egg Boats 

Serves 2; Prep time 10 min; Total Time 40 min

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 lb ground italian sausage
  • 2 demi french bread loaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 splashes of milk
  • 1 small banana pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 of a small red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion,chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (Any type you like. I used cheddar since I had it on hand, but pepper jack or parm would be awesome!)
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet cook ground sausage on medium high heat until cooked through.  Set aside on a paper towel to absorb grease while you prep the rest of the ingredients.  Whisk 2 eggs with milk.  Mix in  peppers, onion, cheese, and sausage. Season with salt and pepper.  Cut out center of the bread to create a boat for egg mixture, stopping 1/2 inch from the bottom.  Set aside inside of the loaves (but don’t throw out- make awesome croutons with the scraps!). Fill each loaf with half the egg mixture and bake on 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until egg is raised and fluffy in the center.  Season with additional salt and pepper and allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

This recipe is super versatile! Fill your egg boats with whatever ingredients you like- so many combinations to try!
