This was my first breakfast I made of the camping season!
And it was pretty good – I know the photo doesn’t look so scrumptious, but this was great for something different – a large filling breakfast for a long day out in the sun at the lake.
Recipe adapted from aBitterSweetWife
2 six” whole wheat hoagies
4 pieces of bacon
5 large eggs
3 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp. each of diced green pepper, red onion and green onion
1 Tbsp. butter or oil
salt to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook bacon till well done (we did this the day prior on the grill). Place on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oils.
2. Sauté green peppers, red and green onions in a bit of oil or butter to your preference.
2. Next cut the middle section out of the hoagie and reserve. Cut the reserved center into cube sized pieces to be used later.
3. Whisk together the eggs, milk, pepper, onion/pepper mix, and 1/3 cup of cheese in a large bowl. Once well combined, drop in the cubed bread pieces. Stir around making sure all pieces are completely coated in the egg mixture.
4. Take the bacon and layer it on the inside of your hollowed out bread. Be sure your cake pan is lined or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Then pour the egg/bread mixture on top of the bacon. Push it down so that you can fit it all in. Sprinkle with reserved cheese and bake till eggs are cooked and the top begins to brown. Ours took about 40 minutes.
5. Cut in half and serve with Louisiana hot sauce.
So, I thought my kitchen at home was small? This is what I have to work with in our camper. It is actually quite all right as long as I have it to myself.
What is it with this dog? He has to always be in the kitchen!!
I have 3 burners and that is fine as we grill most of our foods.
Hollow out your hoagies the best you can. The cubes of bread go in the egg mixture.
Line your bread with bacon. This helps to make sure the egg mix doesn’t seep through the bottom of the bread.
Be sure to spray your pan with cooking spray, some of the egg mixture is likely to escape and you don’t want that sticking. Trust me. Ahem.
Hot out of the oven. Some of our neighbors popped in to say hello and after we visited I went back in and this was still warm!
Mr. FeistyEats commented this was kind of like stuffing. It was! A breakfast stuffing. You want to make sure you bake it long enough so the bread is no longer soggy. That would be bag news. Enjoy!
