Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Using a serrated knife, cut a wedge into the top of each loaf cutting to about 1 inch from each long side. Use a spoon or your fingers to carefully remove the inside of each loaf, leaving about 3/4-inch shell. Arrange bread shells on the prepared baking pan.

  • Remove casings from sausage, if present. In a large skillet crumble and cook sausage with sweet peppers about 8 minutes or until sausage is cooked and peppers are just tender, stirring in the green onions the last minute of cooking. Remove from heat; drain off fat.

  • In a large bowl combine eggs, whipping cream, basil, and salt. Stir in sausage mixture and 1 cup of the cheese.

  • Carefully pour egg mixture into bread shells. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes or until eggs are set (160°F).

  • Let stand for 5 minutes. Using a serrated knife, carefully cut loaves into slices.
