What’s a lot more fun than scrambled eggs and bacon on a Saturday morning?
An Egg Bake!
I created my first egg bake when my Mom was in town Easter weekend. I woke up thinking I’d like to make breakfast for the family since they were in town visiting, but I was bored of the simple scrambled egg idea. I still wanted something quick and easy. After searching the fridge I saw we had some rye bread, eggs, a bunch of veggies, cheese etc. I thought “what if I put these into a bake”?
So we layered the rye bread, sliced tomato, slice onions, and cheddar cheese. Then poured over the scrambled eggs. 20 minutes in the oven and you have a tasty Breakfast Egg Bake.
My Mom wanted to contribute so she made some “flash” asparagus with her own oil vinaigrette for the side.
There are unlimited options with this idea of an egg bake. This morning I opted for a muffin pan version of the egg bake. Egg Bites!
For these I used french bread rolls (cut a small 1/4 an inch high circular piece for each egg bite). Then I placed the circular piece of bread in each muffin tin, added a slice of tomato, sprinkling of onions, and a piece of provolone. Then we poured the egg mix over (I use salt pepper, garlic powder, and some milk).
You can also layer cooked bacon, maybe some ham, or change-up the type of bread you place on the bottom. Once we tried everything bagel flats and they added a ton of flavor.
