Bacon Egg & Cheese Breakfast Loaf
Bacon Egg & Cheese Breakfast Loaf is perfect for a savory breakfast on-the-go. The loaf has bacon and cheese along with hard boiled eggs cooked in the center for extra protein and presentation.
This is a great way to start the day with a filling breakfast. If you’re a savory breakfast lover like me (I do like pancakes and waffles on occasion) you are going to love this breakfast bread.
It’s breakfast in a loaf of bread
With a lot more going on that your average zucchini or banana bread, this Bacon Egg & Cheese Breakfast Loaf will keep you fuller longer because it is loaded with protein and of course with the great taste of bacon you can’t miss out.
Perfect for traveling
I bring slices of this loaf with me when I travel because I like to wake up and enjoy a slice with coffee in my room instead of having to rush out to breakfast or overpay for room service. I also send a slice to work with my husband with a fresh coffee and when he is traveling and has an early flight.
Great for back to school
While making this loaf, it came to mind that it is back to school time for a lot of us and you could make ahead for the week. If you’re running late as we tend to be until we get back into the routine, send a slice with the kids to eat on the way to school. If you want it warm, just put a slice in the toaster, it warms up beautifully and gets a little crust.
Bacon Egg & Cheese Breakfast Loaf – Step by Step
To a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt
To a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and oil.
In small batches, add the wet ingredient to the dry and stir until well mixed.
Stir in the chopped bacon.
Stir in the grated cheese.
Pour half of the mix to a buttered, parchment lined loaf pan. Place 3 hard boiled eggs down the center.
Pour the rest of the mix into the pan to cover the eggs. Smooth the top and baked for 50 minutes or until browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center.
The choice of cheese is up to you. Any of your favorite cheese that is or can be grated will work just as well. I specified vegetable oil, but any light, non-flavored oil can be used.
