Making a hot breakfast for my boys every day is a must when it’s so cold outside. I want their bellies to be warm before they bundle up and head outside to wait for the bus. But it’s easy to fall into a rut of making the same things over and over.
The other day, I saw some adorable football-shaped rolls, and I thought they would make perfect breakfast boats for my little sports fans. There were six rolls in the pack, so I used three and stuck the other three in the freezer for another day.
I sliced into the rolls and removed the tops and middles, being careful to leave the “shell” in tact. Then, I beat together 4 eggs, a few tablespoons of milk, and 1/3 cup shredded cheese. You could also add bacon, sausage, ham, spinach, mushrooms, peppers, or asparagus, but I decided to keep it simple for the kids.
The bread was placed on a rimmed cookie sheet, and I poured the egg mixture into each of the three rolls, then sprinkled a little more cheese on top. They went into a 350-degree F. oven for 25 minutes, until the eggs are set.
The boys loved their egg boats! The egg mixture seeped into the bread and baked up with it so nicely. This was a welcome change in our breakfast routine!
