French Bread Breakfast Tart

I usually like to eat the standard American breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast in some form or another.  With that said I also like a mobile breakfast that can be eaten on the go.  So, check out this open face egg and cheese French Bread Breakfast Tart.  Easy, very tasty and can be picked up and eaten in one hand.  The French Bread is just about as awnry as I am first thing in the morning.  Granted, on the weekends 'first thing in the morning' is not until about 10am so this holds me until lunch quite well.

Ingredients I used:

1- Pillsbury French Bread refrigerated roll
4-large egg
1 1/2 C shredded Gouda cheese
1 C slices of Ham-rolled then sliced into ribbons
4 T chopped chives
Dash of dried Basil, Rosemary, salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray then line with parchment paper.

Chop, shred and slice your ingredients.  I used Gouda because I really like the mild aged flavor and the creamy texture when it's melted.

Carefully unroll the french bread roll, look for the seam and pry the roll apart.  Then divide it into four rectangles.  I use a pizza cutter.  Spread the dough with your fingers until it is about 1/4 inch thick and as large a rectangle as you can get it.  

Okay now! Build a nest for your egg.  Sprinkle the dough with a pinch of dried basil, rosemary salt and pepper.  Divide the pile of cheese into for and mound and spread it on top of the dough.  Follow that with the ham and then the chive.  You want to make sure there is a well in the center.  That's where your egg will nest.

Crack an egg and drop it into the center of all your ingredients. Oh pardon the interruption, you may have noticed the orange juice in the background? That was made by the hands of my niece Kayleigh.  She is learning to cook and decided to add to the menu.  Thank you very much Kayleigh for your valued input.  <3

Now,  fold edges of dough up 1 inch over filling, making pleats and pressing dough firmly..  Work quickly otherwise the egg white will try to make a run for it. 

Bake in the oven at 350 for about 20-25 minutes until the bread is golden and the egg white is set. 

This is better than anything you can get at McGolden King.
