3 Amazing Stuffed Baguettes: Toad-In-The-Hole Breakfast Loaf, Bacon-Wrapped Pepperoni Baguette, And Italian Meatball Sub Boat
There are certain images that immediately come to mind when we think of the word "baguette." France, for starters, but baguettes are popular the world over, and for good reason! That's why we're going to show you 3 awesome stuffed baguettes that will blow your mind. We're stuffing that bready goodness with a couple of fried eggs and bacon for a toad-in-the-hole breakfast experience, wrapping bacon around it for a nice picnic dish, and for our third trick, we're making a classic Italian meatball sub with a twist. Totally epic!
1. Toad-In-The Hole Breakfast Loaf
- 1 baguette
- 5 eggs
- 5 oz bacon, diced
- 5 oz shredded cheddar
1.1 Preheat the oven to 350°F, cut 5 equally-sized holes in the top of the baguette, and scoop out the insides.
1.2 Cook the diced bacon and evenly divide the pieces between the holes.
1.3 Sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese over the bacon in each hole.
1.4 Crack an egg in each hole and cook the baguette for 15 minutes,
2. Bacon-Wrapped Pepperoni Baguette
- 1 baguette
- 1½ cups shredded mozzarella
- 13 slices of American cheese
- 12 oz sliced pepperoni
- ¼ cup ketchup
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 14 oz bacon strips
2.1 Preheat the oven to 350°F and slice the baguette lengthwise, making sure the top and bottom are still connected.
2.2 Spread the mayo over the bottom half of the baguette and top with ⅓ of the pepperoni. Sprinkle half the mozzarella over the pepperoni, followed by another ⅓ of the pepperoni. Smear half the ketchup over the top layer of pepperoni and top with American cheese. Spread the rest of the ketchup and mayo over the American cheese and top with the remaining pepperoni. Sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella on top and carefully close the baguette.
2.3 Arrange the bacon in one long double row so that the slices overlap, place the baguette on top, and start wrapping the bacon around the baguette from both sides. Transfer the baguette to the oven and cook for 45 minutes.
3. Italian Meatball Sub Boat
- 1 baguette
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella
- 1 cup shredded parmesan
For the Italian meatballs:
- 1 lb ground Italian sausage
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp dried basil
- ½ cup grated parmesan
- 1 egg
- 2 cups bread crumbs
- 14 oz marinara sauce
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Add the garlic powder, pepper, dried basil, parmesan, egg, and bread crumbs to the ground Italian sausage and mix until well combined. Form meatballs out of the mass and fry them in a skillet with some olive oil until golden brown. Add the marinara sauce and let everything simmer for about 15 minutes. Cut a long rectangle out of the top of the baguette and scoop out the insides. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella and all of the parmesan cheese inside the bread boat and top with the Italian meatballs and marinara sauce. Sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella in the bread boat and cook for 25 minutes. Garnish the meatball sub with fresh basil and you'll be saying mamma mia in no time!
