Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Bread Bowls

Mornings just got better with these Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Bread Bowls! Fully loaded with all the good stuff like California Avocados, tomato and green onions, these bad boys will fill you up!

Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Bread Bowls!

Just yesterday there was a black crow (the size of a cocker spaniel) in. my. house.

My oldest two kids were away at their friend’s house, and my younger two were mere moments away from napping on my bed while watching a show. I was in my office (towards the front of the house), getting some work done when I heard some noise in the kitchen. I thought it must have been one of my daughters getting a drink and thought nothing of it.

A couple minutes later my daughter comes running into my office and says, “Mom! There is a huge bird in the house!”

This is coming from my 4 year old, who is known for having a wild imagination, so I giggle and say, “Oh really? How big is it?” (totally thinking she’s playing around…)

And then I hear a loud THUD coming from the living room and I rush out of my office in time to see… a HUGE bird!

Since it’s summer time and the weather here is warming up in the evenings (and because we don’t have A/C) I keep the back screen door open to let a nice breeze in the house in the mornings. Well, apparently the screen door got left open and this crow invited himself in.

I threw my girls back into my bedroom and closed the door, telling them to stay put.

The crow stood between me and the back door. He walked back and forth on my carpet, expanding his enormous wings and jumping up and down on the couch. Eyeballing me.

Where the heck was my broom!? 

In the backyard.

doh!

The crow turned is back to me and flew to the corner window, trying desperately to get out of the house. I took a chance and ran threw the back door, pushing it all the way open. I stood there, about 4 feet from the door waiting for the bird to fly out, then I realized that it would fly right into me if I stayed there. So I ran back into the house and down the hallway, arms flailing, in case he tried to peck my head or something.

I couldn’t make this stuff up.

Luckily, the crow flew out of the door without causing much damage… just a racing heart and a new passion for making sure the screen door is shut.

Let’s talk about breakfast… shall we?

I love being able to make a delicious breakfast for my family. These bread bowls are an easy weekend breakfast, but can also be refrigerated and sealed up for a quick, grab-and-go, weekday breakfast.

This is a large batch of breakfast bowls (it makes 10), and 1 is pretty filling. So with the leftovers I wrapped them individually in plastic wrap and put them in the fridge for my husband to grab on his way to work. He LOVED that. Usually he just grabs a banana and granola bar for breakfast, so he really enjoyed getting a hearty breakfast each morning.

I loaded these with crisp bacon, cheese, green onions, California Avocados, diced tomato and fluffy scrambled eggs. You can top them with even more cheese and a little sour cream for the ultimate breakfast bowl!

Just the other day I was in the produce section and a gentleman asked me how to know if an avocado is ripe or not? First of all… I was beyond excited to answer him (seeing as I’m an ambassador for California Avocados), so I picked up an avocado and showed him how to place it in your palm and give it a gentle squeeze. A ripe, ready to eat avocado, will yield to gentle pressure. I also mentioned that he should look for “California” on the label, as those ones are the creamiest in texture thanks to the fact that they are grown in ideal coastal climate conditions. I’m just a plethora of information, aren’t I?

Yield: makes 10 bread bowls

Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Bread Bowls

Ingredients

  • 1 (10 count) country style Pillsbury biscuit dough
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 cup marbled cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 1 California Avocado, diced
  • 6 strips of bacon, cooked till crisp, then crumbled
  • 1 cup diced tomato
  • Optional Garnish: chopped cilantro, sour cream, salsa

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Unwrap biscuit dough and use your fingers to press each biscuit flat. Turn a 12 count muffin tin upside down, and place each biscuits over each cup (do not grease the cups, or the biscuits will slide off). Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool slightly before removing from muffin tin, then set aside.
  3. Meanwhile whisk together the eggs, milk and salt and pepper. Lightly coat a large pan with cooking spray and scramble the eggs. Once scrambled, add the cheese, bacon, California Avocado, tomato and green onions, then gently fold them into the eggs*.
  4. Divide the mixture among the bread bowls, and enjoy with the optional toppings!

Notes from Shawn

*If you want to make these for a grab-and-go breakfast throughout the week, leave out the avocado and tomato, and once cool, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then store in fridge. Reheat in microwave for just 30 seconds, then top with avocado, tomato and any additional toppings you desire.

  1. I would be completely freaked out by a bird in the house!! I’m super in love with this hearty breakfast :)

  2. Another gem! I really like this idea of a mini bread bowl. I think this bowl will replace the slider rolls for Sloppy Joes–guess I’ll have to call them Not-so Sloppy Joes.
    Also thinking these bowls would be a great way to use up the odds & ends leftovers in the refrigerator.

  3. Love this idea Shawn – easy and fun! Seems perfect for a brunch party!!

  4. I’ve had the bird in the house happen TWICE now! I know the racing heart of which you speak!!!
    Those look delish, Shawn! Gorgeous photos, as always.

  5. I love recipes like this that look so impressive and totally please crowds (but are pretty simple to pull off!!) YUM!

  6. It sounds as though you and the bird freaked each other out equally. Too funny! I’m glad it all turned out okay.

    These breakfast bowls are such a great idea! I’d love to wake up to this breakfast on a weekend.
