I once saw this on Pinterest when I was searching for ideas to make my little guy eat eggs with a bit more enthusiasm or at least with minimum gagging. I loved the idea of these cute portable vessels where all good things are packed in one, eggs , veg and of course inside the bun. I used burger buns , they did end up getting a bit soggy at the bottom but not so much, so I lined the tray with some baking paper.
I used turkey strips , something the boys love, but if you can't get hold of them (use any form of deli meat you like, or even some thin slices of luncheon meat , ( brown them a bit in a frying pan before using).
Since some of the bread is removed to create the hole to put the egg, dont throw it away, place in a plastic bag and pop in freezer to use to make fresh breadcrumbs.
This is something the boys enjoy, even my little guy who eats it without much of a fuss. Yess!!!
Recipe : Egg Filled Buns ... recipe inspired by various egg filled bread recipes on Pinterest
4 Burger Buns
100g turkey strips ( or use chicken and parsley Roberts luncheon meat rounds, about 8 would do, two thin slices for each bun)
Handful of baby spinach
Hand ful of freshly grated chedder cheese
salt and pepper
a little olive oil ( optional)
First, preheat oven 180 degree C. line a baking sheet with baking paper , if you don't have baking paper rub a little butter or oil
Using a sharp knife, cut the top of the buns and hollow out the bottom half, You can save the hollowed out bits of bread for another day in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer. ( I like to use the lid when serving, The boys eats these up like burger buns after placing the top half of the bun back on. )
Anyway , arrange the turkey strips inside the buns like this, that's about 3-4 strips per bun.
Then a few spinach leaves, and finally crack the egg over the spinach. Season with salt and pepper and top with cheese. For my little guy I whisked my egg first before adding it in.
Pop them onto the prepared tray and bake for about 10- 15 minutes, till egg is cooked through but still has a bit of wobble in the yolk.
Enjoy these warm !
