TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen whole wheat bread dough, thawed
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits, divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Divide each loaf into eight pieces. Roll into balls. Place in muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper; stir in 1/4 cup bacon bits. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
  • 3. As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, remove from the heat.
  • 4. Using a melon baller, scoop out the center of each roll, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Spoon 3 tablespoons cooked egg mixture into each roll. Top with remaining bacon bits and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.
