Vincent's Country Bacon and Eggs

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"I was inspired by this simple recipe consisting of making holes in a loaf of Italian country bread and putting eggs in it. I decided to make it a little differently using bacon and spinach. This recipe was made in a Panasonic CIO and appears on an episode of the Dinner Spinner TV Show on The CW!"

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). (If using a countertop induction oven, preheat to 390 degrees F (199 degrees C) or use the "Combo 2" setting.) Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; arrange bacon slices on top.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is partially cooked through but not crispy, about 10 minutes in the conventional oven and 6 to 7 minutes in the countertop induction oven.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C); reduce countertop induction oven temperature to 325 degrees F (163 degrees C).
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until spinach turns dark green, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Cut four 2-inch holes 3/4 of the way through each loaf, evenly spaced apart, using a small serrated knife. Remove bread cutouts with your fingers; discard or set aside for another use.
  6. Press 1 tablespoon of the spinach mixture into the bottom of each hole. Line each hole with 1 slice of bacon. Crack 1 egg into each hole; top with 1 tablespoon half-and-half. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese over half-and-half. Transfer loaves to a baking sheet.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set, about 15 minutes.

Vincent, your dish is phenomenal! It's incredibly easy to make, it's fun to eat, and the best thing (as a mom) is the addtion of greens in a breakfast dish. This would be a perfect dish for Chri...

Delicious! I did cut the recipe down just for my hubby and me, so I opted to use some beautiful, crusty Italian rolls instead of the whole loaf of bread, and that worked out great! Really nice ...

This is the perfect brunch for a crowd. The spinach, bacon, egg, and cheese combo were so delicious. I love how you cut the bread and everyone gets an egg-in-the-hole sandwich! I will be trying ...
