Bacon And Eggs In A Bread Bowl

Posted: Updated:


• 2 slices pork bacon, chopped

• ½ cup chopped onion

• 4 cups (6 oz) spinach, thick stems removed, chopped

• 5 large eggs, lightly beaten

• 2/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

• 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

• ½ teaspoon dried oregano

• ½ teaspoon salt

• ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

• Pinch of cayenne pepper

• 2 Panera Bread Sourdough Bread Bowls


• Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

• Cook the chopped bacon in a large skillet until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 1 teaspoon of the fat.

• Add the onion and cook until soft and golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the spinach, cover, and cook until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring spinach from bottom to top once or twice. Drain off any excess water and transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl.

• Add beaten eggs, bacon, ricotta, 3 tablespoons of Parmesan, oregano, salt, pepper, and cayenne to the bowl. Stir gently until combined.

• Cut out the tops of both Panera Bread Sourdough Bread Bowls as if making jack-o-lanterns out of pumpkins. Remove bread from inside, leaving about a ½ =inch thick shell of crust. Save or freeze the bread, including the top crust, for another use, such as bread crumbs or croutons. Place bread bowls on prepared baking sheet.

• Scrape filling into bread bowls and sprinkle with remaining 3 tablespoons of Parmesan.

• Bake, without the top crust of bread, until filling is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45-55 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. Using a serrated knife, cut each bowl into 3 wedges, like a peace sign.
