Breakfast in B(r)e(a)d

Breakfast in Bread is even better than Breakfast in Bed!

The idea for this recipe came while I was making eggs on toast one morning. I love eggs on toast; it’s simple and a filling breakfast.

Then I thought, “What if you put the eggs inside the bread?” Not like a sandwich, like a bread bowl.

And Voila! Breakfast in Bread was born.

This recipe has pimped up the eggs a little by adding mushrooms, spinach, onion, and bacon. And it’s amped up the bread by making it Garlic Bread!

Seriously, your morning meal will never be the same.

Garlic Bread Bowls

I’ve been a long time fan of bread bowls. We’ve made Garlic Bread Bowls before, like with Tomato Soup or Pasta.

It’s pretty straightforward. Generously brush Chef Shamy Garlic Butter on the insides of the bowl, and toast it in the oven. The stuff it full of whatever you want.

In this case, it’s a delicious egg scramble.

Some Tips

Here’s a couple tips:

Under cook the eggs! Scrambled eggs should always be a little under cooked anyway, because they’ll continue to cook out of the pan. But especially here; the filled bread bowls go in the oven for a few minutes to melt the provolone cheese on top. Over cooked eggs are rubbery and gross.

Change up the ingredients however you want. Extra bacon. No mushrooms. Tomatoes instead of spinach. Whatever you want. Make it your own, according to your preference.

Breakfast in Bread is a perfect morning meal, in the comfort of your own kitchen, or on the go!

    I went to Sam’s and bought these products. I am very excited to start cooking with them. Another reason I was excited was that when I purchased the 3 Chef Shamy Gourmet’s I was told if I sent in these #’s that I am about to send you that I would receive a FREE receipt book. BUT, I cannot find anywhere to send them numbers in. I hope you receive this in this area and I get a response. Thank you!
