Baguette Breakfast Casserole Bake with Canadian Bacon, Eggs & Cheese
Servings: 8 -10
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.


  • 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.
  • Bake at 275 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until the egg is cooked throughout and the top is browned.
  • Serve immediately.
