Breakfast Bread

Breakfast Bread

This simple breakfast bread is almost like a pizza with eggs on top, only it’s healthier, definitely quicker to cook, and works just as well for a busy weekday morning with the kids as it does for a weekend brunch with friends.

While this recipe is made using the ingredients I like and keep in my fridge, it’s endlessly adaptable and can be customized to suit your own tastes. Goat cheese is my preferred spread, but ricotta and cream cheese would work just as well. If bacon isn’t your thing, feel free to use prosciutto or turkey bacon in its place, or just skip the meat altogether. Parmesan cheese works just as well as cheddar, and the basil can be replaced with green onions, if you prefer.

While I’ve given instructions for making this in the oven, I actually cook mine in my toaster oven instead. I make all four breads early in the morning, a task that takes less than ten minutes, and then I pop them into the toaster oven as each of my family members stumbles down the stairs. This ensures no one needs to eat cold eggs when they arrive at the table, making it a simple way to get a hot breakfast into many people.

While I refer to this as a breakfast bread, don’t think we haven’t also enjoyed it for dinner, along with a side salad. I’ve even made it for a quick lunch for myself, and for an after-school snack for my teenagers who are usually in need of something fairly substantial when they return home.

Makes 4

You’ll Need

  • 4 pieces naan bread
