Breakfast, Omelet, Recipe
Guys, believe me when I say that these Baked Omelet Boats are mind blowing good! I love breakfast and I love eating breakfast for dinner. I made these the other night and they were a huge hit with my family. My kids even went back for seconds.
One of the things that make these Omelet Boats so great is that you can customize them to everybody’s taste. My kids of course liked it with eggs, cheese, bacon, and ham.
If you prefer sausage over ham and bacon, by all means, switch it out. You can add mushrooms, olives, jalapenos, etc. Whatever veggie out there that makes you happy, throw it in. You don’t need to use a lot, just a tablespoon or two of each veggie.
This would be a great dish to make for Father’s Day Breakfast!
I found the best way to hollow out the bread, is to cut a “V” shape in the top of the bread. Then I hollow out the baguette. I like to press down the remaining bread inside the baguette to help reinforce it so the egg doesn’t leak out.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
