Baked Ham Egg and Cheese Boats

(Adapted from Spoon Fork Bacon

Ham, egg AND cheese... all in a loaf of bread? Yes Yes Yes! 
There's so many ways you could go with this idea but we'll keep it to the basics today. But seriously, the possibilities are endless.  Think bacon, bell peppers, mushrooms, etc..etc..etc..

Lets just jump right into it because there's not really much else to say about it other than its delicious and my non fancy self secretly felt a little fancy when I pulled it out of the oven and served it up. 

* this is based on how many I made. Adjust according to how many you want to eat!

  • 4 small baguettes. (you can use hoagie rolls)
  • 6 large eggs 
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream (you can use milk instead)
  • 1 cup diced ham (I just grabbed the sliced deli sandwich ham and chopped it up)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
  • 2 scallions (sliced thin)
  • Salt, pepper

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Hollow out the bread.  Keep in mind that if you hollow it deep then you have to fill it more. I ended up doing this and had to add more ham, egg, and cheese to the mix.

In a bowl, whip the eggs and cream.  
Next, add the ham, cheese, and scallions.
Season with salt and pepper.
Pour the mixture into the bread loaves and place on a baking sheet.  Bake for about 25 minutes or until the eggs are fully cooked.

Allow to cool for a few minutes then cut wedges and enjoy with a nice hot cup of coffee!
