These Easy Breakfast Baskets are a great way to start any day! Actually, truth be told we often make these for dinner! They can be filled with almost anything you desire. Aside from bacon we have used ground, cooked sausage and sometimes just a bunch of vegetables. Anything that you think goes with an egg will work and taste beautifully!
Kids love to make them and will love to watch them cook. We have set up a breakfast basket station and let them decide what goes inside! These Easy Breakfast Baskets work great for sleepovers! Truth be told adults love to make them too. Kids are cuter though.
Have a look at our video below so you can see how truly easy these Easy Breakfast Baskets are!
Easy Breakfast Baskets
- 1/2 cup bacon, chopped
- 4 crusty rolls, about 4 inches wide
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese, your favorite variety
- 1/4 red pepper chopped
- 1/4 green pepper chopped
- 1 green onion, sliced, for garnish if desired
- ketchup, for serving, if desired
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet with tinfoil. Set aside. In a skillet over medium to medium high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towel and set aside.
Slice off and remove tops from your crusty buns. Tear out inside of each bun as best you can. Do not pull out too much of the inside that you make a hole through the side of the bun. Use these bread pieces for another use. I usually feed it to the birds! Place buns on top of your prepared sheet.
Sprinkle and press down cheese inside each bun. Sprinkle bacon pieces on top of the cheese. Chop peppers and sprinkle some on top of the bacon.
Gently crack each egg into each bun, on top of the peppers. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on top of each egg if desired. Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and add some more cheese on top. Return pan to oven for another 5 to 10 minutes. Timing will be determined by how you like your eggs. Chop green onion and sprinkle on top of egg baskets if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
