Egg Boats

Egg Boats
This is a great way to make egg sandwiches for a crowd! All you have to do is carve out a wedge in each hero roll and mix the egg, cheese, bacon, green onion, light cream, salt and pepper together in a bowl. Then just pour equal amounts of the egg mixture into each boat (hero roll) and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. I've been making this often since finding this recipe! So easy and delicious!

This recipe is from a blog called Spoon Fork Bacon

Here is the recipe with my version in red...

                                                        Egg Boats
                                          Makes 4

Ingredients:
4 demi sourdough baguettes - I used 6 inch hero rolls
5 large eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream - I use light cream or milk
4 ounces pancetta, finely chopped and fried until crisp - I used bacon or packaged bacon bits
3 ounces gruyere cheese, grated - I used cheddar
2 green onions, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste - I use a pinch of each for each egg 


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Cut a deep “V” through the tops of each baguette( or hero rolls) until about a 1/2 inch to the bottom. Partially unstuff the bread. Set aside.
3. Place the eggs and cream into a mixing bowl( I use a large measuring cup with a spout for easy pouring) and lightly beat together. Whisk in the remaining ingredients and lightly season with salt and pepper.
4. Divide and pour the mixture into each bread boat and place onto a baking sheet. I line the

sheet with tin foil for easy clean up.
5. Bake uncovered on center rack for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, puffed and set in the center.
6. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, and serve.

I usually only eat one boat but hubby eats two. So this serves 2 - 4
I have doubled this recipe without any problems.

  10. For a non-bake version, you could make your favorite egg salad, put it into the hero boats and top it with bacon and shredded cheese. For a touch gourmet, you could lightly toast the top in the broiler until the cheese melts and it's brown and crispy on top!

    1. That sounds delicious! I like the idea of adding bacon and cheese to egg salad! And melting it would be even better! Thanks for that idea! =D

  13. I tried this but the bread absorbed all the egg and ended up mushy. It did not work out at all!

    1. Hi Sunsysta...I'm so sorry the bread got mushy. I'm not sure why it didn't work for you because I've made this at least a dozen times with no problem. Did you remember to remove some of the bread before filling?
