Serve these adorable baked eggs for breakfast or brunch.  At just 88 cents per serving, they're a budget-friendly way to dress up your breakfast table. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Slice off top of each dinner roll and gently remove some bread until there is a hole large enough to accommodate an egg. Arrange rolls on a rimmed baking sheet. Reserve tops.

Step 2

Crack an egg into each roll, then top with some herbs and a bit of cream. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Step 3

Bake until eggs are set and bread is toasted, 20 to 25 minutes. After eggs have cooked for 20 minutes, place bread tops on baking sheet and bake until golden brown. Let sit 5 minutes. Place tops on rolls and serve warm.

My family really enjoyed this for brunch, it was easy and looked wonderful! I made this for a crowd of 16 and served it with a tomato soup in cups, as suggested. We thought it would also be good with hollandaise sauce. It was a big hit!

I love this recipe - turns out perfect each and every time. Sadly, some cookbook author wannabe has stolen both the photo and the recipe and published in her book and online on her web as HERS! YIKES She has also blatantly stolen from Mark Thomas and Lynne Miller Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls Recipe | 20 Dec 2010 – Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls. Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls Recipe enlarge.

Used Costco pretzel rolls to make this and they turned out great! Didn't use the cream and didn't need it. Made for a large group coming over for brunch, everyone loved them.

I'm not sure if I used the wrong rolls, but this recipe had too much bread for my liking. If I try it again, I am going to look for smaller rolls.
