How to make these cheesy baked egg boats

Preheat your oven to a toasty 350°F. 🌞 Take the bread and give it a trim by removing the top 1/3, then carve out some of the inside to make room for the eggs. Remember, don’t get too carried away; we want a robust layer of bread at the bottom. Now, show that bread some love by rubbing it with olive oil and sprinkling on some bagel seasoning, salt, and pepper. Pop it in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the bread turns into a beautifully toasted canvas. 🍞

While the bread works its magic in the oven, let’s whip up the eggy goodness. 🍳 Grab a bowl and whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and a dash of chili flakes. Stir in some fresh spinach and a generous 1/2 cup of shredded cheese to amp up the flavor. 🧀

Back to our bread canvas: sprinkle it with 1/4 cup of cheese and drizzle over a tablespoon or two of pesto for that extra kick. Now, gently pour in the egg mixture, letting the bread soak it up like a sponge for a brief moment. Finish off with a sprinkle of the remaining cheese, then let the oven do its thing for a cozy 30 minutes, or until the center sets just right. ⏲️

As the Cheesy Baked Egg Boat emerges from the oven, crown it with crispy bacon (check out the recipe below!), a dollop of pesto, and a touch of chili crisp. 🥓🌿 Now, it’s time to savor every delightful bite of this breakfast masterpiece – enjoy! 🎉

What is billionaire’s bacon?

“Billionaire’s Bacon” is a premium and indulgent twist on traditional bacon, known for its rich and flavorful profile. 🥓💰 This upscale bacon recipe typically involves coating thick-cut bacon slices with a combination of high-quality ingredients to elevate its taste and texture.

The exact recipe can vary, but common elements include a glaze or coating made from a blend of brown sugar, maple syrup, and sometimes spices or chili flakes. 🍁🌶️ The bacon is generously coated with this mixture before baking, allowing the sugars to caramelize and create a sweet, savory, and often slightly spicy flavor profile.

The term “Billionaire’s Bacon” suggests a luxurious and extravagant touch, indicating that the ingredients used and the resulting taste are of a premium and opulent nature. It has become a popular gourmet treat at upscale breakfast spots or brunch destinations, offering a unique and decadent twist on the beloved classic bacon. 🍴✨

Storage and Reheating Instructions

This recipe doesn’t do well in the freezer, so I wouldn’t even attempt it unless you are some sort of freezer genius.

I have made these egg boats in advance however. I will typically just sliced it up, stick it in the fridge, and then stick it in the oven to reheat at 350F for about 15 minutes. It’s not as good as fresh, but it will do the trick in a pinch.
