Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Boats

Yum

I have to say, these Breakfast Boats were a major hit on Saturday morning with everyone in the house.  I got the idea to make this version of a Breakfast Boat after watching Clinton Kelly on The Chew make his version.  He made an egg and bacon custard and baked it fully in each bread boat.  I decided to make a very fluffy scrambled egg with ham and cheese.  

If you decide to make the scrambled eggs in boats, a key bit of advice is to make sure you cook the eggs on medium low heat and only get them lightly cooked (80% cooked) because they will finish off in the oven.  I topped them with some cheese and baked them off to crispy perfect.  The boats were perfectly handheld or portable and everyone had their own to enjoy.  I see a lot of boats in my future.

4. In a bowl, whisk eggs with cream and a little salt and black pepper.
5. Placed egg custard into the nonstick skillet with some melted butter on medium low heat. Slowly drag a spoon and create soft scrambles of egg. Add 1 cup cheese to the eggs and fold in gently.
6. Then add the ham, onion and jalapeno to the eggs and gently fold into the eggs. Taste for seasoning here. Adjust as needed.
7. Take a bread roll and cut a little off the top. Then hollow it out. Fill with egg mixture and top with remaining cheese. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted and bread is crisp. Serve hot/warm. Enjoy.
