Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Serving: 3-4


    • 1 La Brea Bakery Sourdough Loaf
    • 2 large eggs
    • 4 oz Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
    • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
    • 1/4 cup chopped green onion, about 1/2 bunch
    • 2-3 Cherry Tomatoes, sliced to half
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper
    • Thyme for garnish


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using a bread knife, cut the top of the loaf as deep V-shape until leaving a half inch at the bottom. Remove the top and the soft interior of the bread, you can save the tops and interior for another use.

Place the eggs into a mixing bowl and lightly beat them. Pour the heavy whipping cream and shredded mozzarella cheese in the bowl and whisk them well. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and whisk them again.

Place the loaf onto the baking sheet and pour the mixture into the loaf boat. Be sure not to overfill the bread. Lastly, top the boat with cherry tomatoes.

Bake it for about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. You may additionally broil just about 2 minutes until you get a nice brown color. Remove your breakfast boat from the oven and garnish with thyme if preferred.

Allow the egg boat to cool for about 5 minutes, cut and serve while warm. Bon appetite!

Reheating: If not serving immediately, allow the egg boat to cool completely. Cut the loaf in half and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Store in reusable bags in the refrigerator or freezer. Reheat uncovered at 325F in a regular or toaster oven until warmed through for about 20 minutes if refrigerated (or about 30 minutes if frozen).
