Lemon and Basil Eggs over Focaccia
This is a fun breakfast or brunch recipe, courtesy of Giada DeLaurentiis. I loved this recipe the moment I first saw it on her show and I have made it several times since then. You can customize it to your liking, using whatever bread and herbs you have on hand.
The idea is to hollow out a loaf of bread. This "hollowed out" bread is cut or torn into cubes and used at a later time. An egg mixture is then poured into the cavity of the bread. The "extra" bread then gets cubed up and added back on top of the egg mixture and baked. The end result is a crispy outer coating on the bread and a creamy interior. We enjoyed this with some fresh fruit. You can find the recipe here.
