brunch egg boats

Hopefully one day I will get into the swing of things and remember that blogging should be done more than once every two weeks...Oh well, I guess I'll start now!

One of my favorite meals is weekend brunch--and egg boats are one of my favorite easiest brunch entrees ever!

What you will need: 
(based on a small baguette for 2 people)

1 baguette
4 eggs
Splash of milk
2 pinches of shredded cheese of choice
Handful of fresh chives

What to do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Begin with the baguette

Cut a long rectangular section out of the center of the baguette

Crack 4 eggs

Add a splash of milk, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. Whisk together

Grab the handful of chives and chop to your desired size

Add most of the chopped chives to eggs and stir. Save some chives for topping

Sprinkle the bottom of the baguette with a pinch of shredded cheese and a pinch of chives.

Slowly pour the egg mixture into the baguette. Top of remainder of shredded cheese and chopped chives. Place baguette in preheated oven. Bake for 30 minutes.

Egg boat is finished when puffed up and does not jiggle when you move it.

Cut up and enjoy!!!

 Other possible add-ins:

Caramelized onions
Anything else you love in an omelette!

Also feel free to pre-toast the baguette for 5 minutes before adding the egg mixture. This super easy brunch piece goes amazingly well with a bellini, mimosa, or bloody mary!

Happy weekend!
