Bacon & Egg Bread Bowls

I found this recipe in a magazine and thought it looked adorable. It's also delicious and quick and easy to prepare!

Yield: 8 servings

1 package Kaiser rolls (usually contains 8)
8 large eggs
2 tablespoons heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste

1/4 cup grated Parmesan
8 slices bacon
1 avocado, diced
8 fresh basil leaves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice the top off each roll and scoop out the insides, being careful not to pierce the bottom.  Arrange rolls on a baking sheet.

Crack an egg into each roll and drizzle with cream. Season each roll with salt and pepper and then sprinkle with Parmesan. Place baking sheet in oven and bake until the eggs are set and the bread is toasted, 20 to 30 minutes.

While the bread bowls are cooking in the oven, cook bacon slices until crisp and drain on paper towels.  Dice avocado.  Once the bread bowls are ready, remove from oven and garnish with bacon slices, avocado and fresh basil.  Serve while hot.  Enjoy!

TipsThis recipe is a breeze.  As soon as I made it for the first time, I thought of a million other ways to prepare it.  Saving leftover hamburger buns to use would be smart, for instance. And other toppings... sundried tomatoes, ham, cheese, mushrooms, asparagus... it's endless!
