Brunchin' it

Every time we have family in from out of town we put together a big brunch.  I love trying new recipes each time, i make sure never to repeat my contributions.  This time i decided to do an "eggs in a basket" type thing as well as french toast kebabs.

I wanted to bake my eggs inside of  a "bread bowl"  but of course there were no round rolls to be found anywhere!! ugh just my luck...the only round rolls i could find were soft, they need to be crunchy so i had to get oval ones :(  as a result my eggs were too small for the oval hole *sigh*  but they tasted great so lets just pretend they look just as good.  Start by pre-heating the oven to 350

slice each roll at the top and remove some of the bread on the inside making room for the egg.  I decided to put a piece of ham down as a barrier

Crack an egg in each roll and add some heavy cream and your favorite herbs (i believe i used tarragon), i also added some grated Parmesan cheese on top 

pop them in the oven and bake until eggs are set and rolls are toasted (approximately 20 minutes)

the french toast kebabs are super easy, just make your favorite french toast recipe.  when the french toast is ready cut them up into cubes like so:

just add them to your skewers with some fruit (we used strawberries, bananas, and pineapples) and they're ready...ok i may have also drizzled some chocolate on there too...shhh!

PS as good as all that sounds, its NOTHING compared to the staple of all of our brunches: Brown sugar glazed bacon!  its amazing!!! and so easy!  basically cover bacon with brown sugar and bake that's all, i found the recipe from Bon Appetite a while ago and have been obsessed ever since!  Click the pic for the link
