Baked Egg Ciabatta Boats


  1. PREHEAT oven to 350° F. CUT out long rectangle from top of each bun. REMOVE some of the bread to create boat-like vessel (reserve bread for another use). PLACE on parchment paper lined baking sheet. BRUSH each with some olive oil.

  2. WHISK together eggs, Parmesan cheese, milk, parsley, chives, salt, pepper, dried thyme and garlic powder.

  3. POUR mixture evenly into each boat. BAKE for about 20 minutes or until golden brown, puffed and set in center.

  • 4 rectangular ciabatta buns
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1/4 tsp. each salt, pepper, dried thyme and garlic powder


Customize egg boats by adding veggies, such as tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms or zucchini.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
