Let's Make Breakfast!

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.

The recipe is here, if anyone is interested.
I did change it up a bit, it's a recipe you can do that with,
to fit your likes and dislikes!

It's mouth watering and super easy to make I am definitely going to try...

Farm Girl said...

That looks like a recipe for me!! My grandma said the best cooks were the ones who just eyeballed meals without measuring. She was the best cook in the whole world I might add. I just finished breakfast, or I would go in and make this. I might make it for dinner. :)

Well, this looks delicious! I'm going to remember this for next Christmas; a special breakfast for just the two of us!

Your hubby is one lucky man, I make everyone fend for themselves, figure if I am making a good dinner that is enough cooking in one day for me, LOL... that is one of those things if I never had to cook again I don't think it would bother me :)
