Baguette Breakfast Bake

Here’s an elegant, yet quick and easy baked breakfast casserole. Tuck savory Canadian bacon, eggs, herbs and cheese inside crusty baguettes the night before. When you wake up, add a little cream, then slip it into the oven for brunch. This recipe originally appeared on


  • One full-sized baguette
  • 8-10 eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 8-10 slices Canadian bacon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the baguette into eight to 10 pieces of varying size, so that children can have smaller portions if
  • desired. Line them up, edge side down in one medium or two small buttered casserole dishes.
  • Create a hole in the middle of each slice of baguette by pushing the soft bread in the middle down to
  • the bottom of the casserole dish. Press a slice of Canadian bacon into the hole, then crack an egg on
  • top.
  • Gently crack the egg on top of the Canadian bacon-stuffed baguette.
  • Whisk the nutmeg into the cream*. Pour in a tiny bit of cream into each baguette to fill, then pour any
  • remaining cream into the cracks between the bread slices. (*Note: If making the night before, wait to add
  • the cream until you are ready to put it in the oven.)
  • Sprinkle with chives, salt, and pepper and top with the shredded Gruyere and grated Parmesan.
  • Pour on cream, then top with the cheeses and chives.
  • Bake at 275 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until the egg is cooked throughout and the top is browned.
  • Serve immediately.
