slices bacon
large eggs
tablespoon heavy cream
cup shredded white cheddar cheese
scallions, finely sliced
pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Place bread halves on a lightly greased baking sheet. Slide into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
  • 3 Remove loaves from oven and slice a long hole in the middle of them, lengthwise. Pull out some of the dough filling inside each loaf, creating little boats.

Baked Egg Boats

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

I'm sorry but eggs, bacon and cheese inside a bread boat? YES.

If you've been coming 'round these parts for a while now, it's pretty obvi that I'm a savory kinda gal. ESPEEEEECIALLY at breakfast time.

Now, I do eat my share of blueberries and coconut yogurt. And sometimes breakfast bars. Oh gosh, like really early in the morning when I have that first cup of coffee and I'm sitting down to work. Something about an almondy chocolatey granola breakfast bar just does the trick and I'm totally off point.

Long about 9:30 am, after a good run, that's when it hits. The mega mama protein craving that REQUIRES something eggy, cheesy, and either bready or a tortilla-y. Some call it problematic. I call it awesome.

But I won't get all up in your face about it because that kind of 'tude just doesn't work well on me.

But I will say this. Listen and listen good, y'all. BAKED EGG BOATS FOR. THE. WIN.

Seriously. You par-bake some Pillsbury simply rustic french bread, rip out some innards, fill it with your favorite brekky fillings, let it finish baking and WHAT. UP.

This recipe inspired by Spoon Fork Bacon makes two 5-inch boaties. Which is perfect for a lazy Sunday morning date style brunch. Or right now.

Let's make 'em!

Gather your goods. Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread, 3 eggs, some cheese, 2 slices bacon, a smidge of heavy cream (that's RIGHT) and some scallions.

Ingredients for Egg Boats

Slice that french bread in half, crosswise and place them on a baking sheet. Slide her on in the oven.

Bake French Bread

While it's par-baking, crisp up your bacon. MMMMM. Taste one. Good.

Chopped Bacon

Whisk together your eggs and cream.

Eggs and Cream

Then add the bacon, cheese and scallions oh holy goodness.

Add Bacon, Cheese and Scallions

Now, this is about 20 minutes into the baking. The package tells you to bake I think around 23 to 25? This is right before that, so it's not TOTALLY done. I just didn't want it to burn. Ja know? Rip out some innards, like deez.

Baked French Bread

Fiiiiiiill it up. Mine ran out one side, but we just laugh and go on with life, right? RIGHT?

Add Egg Mixture

You finish the baking, another 25 minutes or so, and looooook.

Not joking when I say that when you taste how incredible that filling is with the chewy French bread, you will slap your spouse. Twice.


*Bev did not actually slap her spouse, you guys. She punched him. For more musings visit her blog at Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.

Hey, what kind of egg bake do you like most?
