Breaking Bread Together with Egg Boats

As promised, I’m back with another recipe! As part of La Brea Bakery’s “Breaking Bread” promotional tour (see Tuesday‘s post for tour stops in Charlotte or for my Berry Breakfast Bruschetta recipe), I bring you more yummy doughy goodness.

I made these babies for brunch with Ethan’s grandparents, and yes, I do find them impressive enough for “breaking bread” with the in-laws.

brunchI don’t, however, think they should be limited to brunch. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner would work.

Bacon Egg Boats

Ingredients
  • 1 baguette (La Brea's baguettes work well because they are quite long.)
  • 1.5 oz bacon
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 5 eggs
  • ⅓ c heavy cream
  • ¾ c shredded cheese (I used 2% colby jack, but cheddar or gruyere would also work)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Cut the baguette into three portions.
  2. Cut deep v-marks into each portion of bread. Be sure not to cut all the way to the bottom of the bread, and leave a little room on the ends as well to keep the contents in the "boat." Scoop out some of the bread with your hands and eat immediately... I mean, reserve for another purpose.
  3. Grease a pan (if non-stick) and cook bacon. This may require two batches. Place bacon on a plate covered with paper towels. Add shallots to pan, and cook stirring frequently, taking care not to burn. Cook on medium heat until they've carmelized a bit.
  4. Crumble the bacon into pieces larger than bacon-bits but smaller than typical bite-size.
  5. In a medium-large bowl, whisk eggs. Add cream. Whisk. Add cheese. Whisk. Add shallots and bacon. Stir.
  6. Place bread on a baking sheet. Pour egg mixture into the bread boats.
  7. Bake approximately 25 minutes. Allow this to set about 5 minutes prior to serving. Makes 3 large or 6 small servings.

familyPoor little Ethan still hasn’t had cheese, bread, eggs, or even bacon. Womp Womp. A life without bread and cheese – goodness, perhaps that’s why the little guy fusses all the time.

kevinWhat’s your favorite cheese to pair with egg? I don’t think I can pick just one!
