Baked Egg Boat

in Bread,Breakfast

I wish I could claim credit for this idea.

I wish I could claim credit for the name Baked Egg Boat.

But I cannot. I saw something similar in an old issue of Real Simple magazine. I, like the genius organizer I am, didn’t write down any notes on how to make this… but the name Baked Egg Boat just stuck with me (for some reason) so I went for it.

It’s like a fancy breakfast sandwich, or a Quiche in a really thick (bread) crust.

And if you don’t think that sounds amazing… well… you’re crazy.

I like how you can add anything to the egg batter: green onion, fancy cheeses, roasted veggies, breakfast meats (or their substitutes). I like when you can add anything you like… it’s similar to pizza in that way. And I love anything similar to pizza.

And if you don’t like pizza… well… you’re crazy.

Now that I’ve probably offended any number of you here’s some unrelated news: it’s snowing outside!!!!!

And if you don’t like snow… well…

Baked Egg Boat, makes one medium-sized baguette.

Needed: a baguette, 5 eggs, 1/3 cup cream or milk, toppings of your choice (I used green onions and shredded cheddar cheese).

Carve out an inverted triangle in your baguette, remove and scrap out a bit more of the inside of the bread. In a bowl combine the eggs, and milk. Now add in small torn pieces of the bread you removed (excluding the crust). Pour this egg batter into the baguette, top with onions, cheese and a bit of salt and pepper. Bake at 350 F for 28-30 minutes (I was surprised by how long it took for the egg to set up-you can try turning the heat up slightly and see how that goes for you).

xoxo. Emma

Love the breakfast ideas I’ve been seeing over here! I’m a teacher in KC and woke up to a snow day today…hooray! Coming to visit your shop this Saturday.

Emma February 13, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Oh-how exciting!

hannahalehandra February 13, 2012 at 4:07 pm

AMAZING IDEA!!! As a vegetarian I could totally live of this sort of thing. Wow.

Catherine Denton February 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Mama Smith @projectlittlesmith February 13, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Oh my does that look so yummy! Eggs and bread is perfection (sadly my husband doesn’t like eggs for dinner- I could eat them for every meal). Thanks.

debbie February 13, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Bookmark! This looks just too good…

Rachael February 13, 2012 at 11:09 pm

Looks mighty tasty, and impressive enough to serve up as a fancy breakfast for friends staying over without getting flour all over yourself and the kitchen trying to make waffles/pancakes before the first coffee of the day!

Nicole February 14, 2012 at 12:32 am

Omg. So yummy and tantalizing.

Rach February 14, 2012 at 4:25 am

I just read an article about Kristen Bell and how she loves ‘pizza eggs’ where she scrapes off whatever is on last night’s pizza into her eggs. Sounds like it’s up your alley (and mine!).

Amanda February 14, 2012 at 5:10 am

This looks fantastic! Perfect for a fancy brunch or indulgent breakfast, definitely going to have to look for an occasion to make this soon (I’m thinking saturday…)

mellissa @ ibreatheimhungry February 14, 2012 at 1:46 pm

This looks amazing! I love bread and pizza and sometimes snow – thanks for confirming that I am not, in fact, crazy! I was starting to wonder and you saved me thousands on wasted therapy – my husband will also be happy to know! ;) It may not be your idea but you’ve done it justice – pinning it to my must make board! Thanks for sharing!

Kacie @ A Collection of Passions February 16, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Are you kidding me? That looks so amazing and pretty easy. I know what I’m making this Sunday for brunch with the in-laws! Thanks Emma!

This is certainly a great idea and could be varied in all sorts of ways.

Marysia February 18, 2012 at 8:13 pm

I really regret that I haven’t bought French bread today…

cheyenne February 20, 2012 at 10:55 am

hmm – this looks so good!
xo, cheyenne

Jill February 20, 2012 at 4:16 pm

made this last week, and it was super tasty!

i do wonder what size baguette you used, though. my egg mixture overflowed, and i even used one less egg than the recipe calls for.

Kayleigh February 22, 2012 at 12:01 am

I’ve also seen this idea in potatoes instead of bread!! See

They both look delicious!!

Siobhan/Facets of the Fabulous February 23, 2012 at 10:34 am

Thank’s so much for sharing this! I love quick assembly recipes like this! You have inspired me to try this, and maybe have a bash at a sweet version!

viv March 9, 2012 at 2:26 pm

you make me laugh so much! looks so good too. xx

Stacy March 22, 2012 at 4:06 am
