Breakfast in Bread

A couple of years ago, I came back from a child free weekend (with Mr.Scott) in Zurich with two new dishes to post. The first recipe was a  SCHNITZEL. The second was a total revelation to me. I thought I had seen it all, until the friends we were staying with produced this most wonderful breakfast dish. The only problem I had was coming up with a name that represented the dish correctly.


Breakfast in bread is a combination of bread filled with savoury breakfast ingredients which are baked together in a muffin tin. What I loved most about it is the lack of frying. All the ingredients get baked in individual muffin tin moulds in a very hot oven. It is also a healthy alternative to a fry up but with all the classic morning flavours. We were given both a meat and a veggie option, both were seriously good. If I had to choose one, I would go for the spinach, cheese and egg version. But, the smoky bacon and egg was excellent and I am sure that a smoked salmon, dill and egg mixture would work a treat too. The recipe comes from a friend of our friend who has lived in Zurich for a few years now. She is apparently a very good cook with many good recipes. This one is most definitely a winner!

    MMMmmm!!!  I love this idea. It would be a great moneyspinner for someone with a catering van.
    A fry up on the go at car boot sales or at the match.

    We tried the bacon & egg ones & they tasted great!
    However our tins weren’t big enough so we had egg overspill.
    Have just ordered deeper tins & plan to make them again trying different fillings.
