Breakfast with no clean up? We're so in. Bake up your eggs in neat little packages by using a tasty bread roll instead of a dish. Customize it by adding your favourite cheese, bacon, sausage, chopped peppers, or sliced tomatoes and you've got a full meal. I kept it simple in this recipe by just adding a bit of Cheddar, but you can dress it up as fancy as you want.

No clean up with this recipe!


2 buns

2 eggs

1/4 cup cheese

1 Tbsp melted butter


and pepper


1. Turn the oven to 350 F.

2. Using a serrated knife, cut the top of each bun. Scoop out the inside, leaving some bread so that you have a border and you don't go through the crust. Brush the inside and edges with butter. Don't throw out the bread bits! Save them for bread crumbs or have as a snack.

3. Add fillings to your bread bowl. I just used cheese here, but you could add cooked and crumbled sausage, cooked and crumbled bacon, chopped ham, or various cheeses. Don't get too crazy with it, you want room for you egg.

4. Set the filled buns onto a baking sheet and place them in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, then loosely cover with foil and bake another 10-15 minutes, until the middle of the eggs are set and no longer jiggly.

5. Remove from the oven and eat!
