Eggs in a Boat
The most creative yet most delicious breakfast you could make that is just too darn cute – Eggs in a Boat! The bread is crispy on the outside but super soft on the center and stuffed with eggs and meat. Brunch could not get any better!
Preparing the Bread
For this recipe, we will be using demi baguettes which are just shorter and more small baguettes. They usually come in a pack of 2 and I’ve found them at both Walmart and Trader Joe’s.
To prepare the bread, just cut three sections out of each baguette by cutting rectangular pieces out. When you cut in the shape of a rectangle, cut about 3/4 of the way down to make enough room for the egg. Take out the pieces of bread you cut out and any extra bread stuffing in there. That’s it!
The Garlic Butter
The first step is to prepare the garlic butter! Here’s everything you will need:
- unsalted butter, melted
- garlic cloves, finely minced
- parsley, finely chopped
- black pepper
- parmesan, grated
Just add everything to a small bowl, mix it together, and it’s ready to go! Feel free to go stronger on the garlic if you can’t get enough.
Assembling and Baking
Once the garlic butter and bread is ready, it’s time to assemble and bake! There are so many variations of this recipe you can do, the possibilities are truly endless. Here is my version:
Brush the bread, inside and out, with the garlic butter. Add beef bacon to the bottom and then add a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella on top. Crack the egg on top into each well and pop in the oven to bake at 400°F for 12 to 15 minutes, depending on how large your eggs are and how well you want the yolk to be. If the egg white is still jiggly, that means it needs more time.
When it comes out of the oven, add a sprinkle of salt and black pepper on top. Garnish with basil, parsley, parmesan, and red pepper flakes. Cut each baguette into three sections and enjoy!

Eggs in a Boat
The most creative yet most delicious breakfast you could make that is just too darn cute - Eggs in a Boat! The bread is crispy on the outside but super soft on the center and stuffed with eggs and meat. Brunch could not get any better!
- 2 demi baguettes
- 6 eggs
- beef bacon
- mozzarella cheese, shredded
- basil, chopped
- parsley, chopped
- grated parmesan
- red pepper flakes
- salt, to taste
- black pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon garlic, finely minced
- 3 tablespoons parmesan, grated
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- To a small bowl, add the melted butter, parsley, garlic, parmesan, salt, black pepper, and oregano. Mix together and set aside.
- Take each baguette and cut three sections out of each one so it creates three wells.
- Brush the garlic butter all along the inside and outside.
- Add beef bacon to the bottom of each well and then mozzarella cheese. Crack an egg on top into each well.
- Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, larger eggs will take longer to cook.
- Take out of the oven once the egg whites are set and finish it off with salt, black pepper, chopped basil, parsley, more parmesan, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes to enjoy!
Tips & Notes
- DO NOT cook the bacon on the pan previously. It will burn in the oven. You can just add it raw into the bread and it will cook in the oven along with the egg.
- If you use large eggs versus smaller ones, it will take a few more minutes for the white to fully cook.
- Depending on if you like a runny yolk, jammy yolk, or hard, cook shorter or a longer time respectively.
Just made this using sausage since I did not have have beef bacon. My family loved this will make this again and again. I plan to make a lot of your recipes, thanks for sharing
Love this recipe so much! Used ciabatta buns instead and it worked well
this was a wonderful dish , we really enjoyed it.
SO delicious I made it this morning and it was a good change for eggs and bread. The only thing I did differently is less butter only because that is my personal preference.
Mashallah loved your recipes
