Baked Egg Boats

I’ve learned so many things from Pinterest. I’ve learned how to transport cupcakes, how to fill a piping bag in the most mind-blowing way, how to keep earphone cords from tangling, how to get sand off your legs, how to keep an apple from browning.

I’ve been inspired by travel photos, gotten excited about clothes, and stumbled upon more beautiful-looking recipes than I know what to do with (I made THREE different boards to deal with all the food I’m inspired by..do I have a problem?).

If you’re not using Pinterest, what are you wasting your time on instead? {Let me know in the comments if you want an invite!}

I’m finding it so useful to have everything I’m interested in pinned in one place. It’s like an interactive inspiration board, and it’s awesome. Any time I’m stumped about what to make/eat/do next, I just head over and scroll until I find something. And that’s exactly what I did with these baked egg boats. Here’s their original post on Pinterest – so beautiful! Turns out, I had some baguette in my freezer, so I made these on a bright, sunny Saturday. They were delicious.

Ingredients (Original recipe here)

  • Mini baguettes, or a large one cut into sections
  • Eggs (I used 2, because I was only making one boat)
  • Cheese (I used Asiago, but I would have loved some goat’s cheese with this)
  • Green onions
  • Optional: bacon + cream

Method

Hollow out the middle of a piece of baguette. Don’t be like me and accidentally hollow out all the way to the edge. That was really stupid. To soothe your curious nature, let me just say that the solution involved building a bread bandaid and securing it with tinfoil. I repeat, don’t do this:

Beat together the eggs, cheese and green onions. That part I managed without much difficulty.

Pour the mixture into your boat, and put it into a 350 degree oven. Bake for about 25 minutes, although mine took a little longer.

Serve with big glasses of orange juice and a little ketchup for good measure!

Ooh, steamy! Enjoy.
