Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls

Whether you’re looking for a simple idea for busy mornings, or need an elegant recipe for brunches, this easy recipe is great for all occasions. Though it’s best not to prep it ahead (since the bread can get overly gooey if raw eggs sit in uncooked rolls), you can slice the rolls the night before, so all you have to do when ready to eat is crack the egg in and bake. An entire batch fits nicely on the extra-large Good Cook AirPerfect Nonstick Half-Sheet Cake Pan. Designed with a channeled surface, this baking sheet ensures even cooking. So bread bowls come out golden, with the eggs baked evenly the whole way through.

For added flavor, try lining your bread bowls with slices of ham, or sprinkle with bacon bits, chives or other fresh herbs. There are so many ways to enjoy these eggs!
