I was up early on Christmas morning,
anyone who "still believes"
finds it hard to sleep on this magical day!
I had a special breakfast planned for the hubs and I,
something I had never made before and I was excited to get started.
In order to "wet your whistle", let's start with the finished dish...
Bacon Egg Boats with Hash Browns
And can I please mention, how much I love these plates.
Now...let me show you how it's done.
French bread, hollowed out, in order to make a boat.
Lined with spinach, (this step I added).
Bacon...I think I added this as well.
Then to a bowl,
I mixed diced red pepper, diced sweet onion, chopped bacon,
a cheddar cheese blend, 6 eggs and some heavy cream.
I did not measure any of those things,
I just eyeballed it.
The egg mixture gets ladled into the bread boat.
Top it with a cheddar cheese blend, then into a 350 degree oven.
I altered the recipe some,
but it called for 20 minutes in the oven.
After 20 minutes, it looked like this, but when I stuck a knife into the center,
the eggs were still runny.
But oh boy, it looked good,
I put it back into the oven and just kept checking it.
After about 45 minutes total, it looked like this and it was done.
I made shredded potatoes to go with it and the meal was delicious.
This kept our bellies satisfied for the entire day.
