  • 1 loaf round bread
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 16 ounce mild country sausage
  • 1 medium red bell pepper , seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium orange bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh basil, torn into small pieces
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • dash of red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1-1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Using a serrated knife, slice about 1 inch off the top crust of the bread. Carefully tear out the insides of the loaf, leaving about 3/4-inch of bread to form a shell. Put the loaf on the baking sheet, brush inside with some olive oil, and season with the salt and pepper. Bake until slightly crispy, about 10 minutes. Cool on a baking rack while you make the sausage mixture.
  • Heat 1 TBSP olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until golden brown. Remove the sausage to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  • Add the orange and red pepper to the skillet. Cook and stir around until tender, about 6 minutes over medium heat. When the peppers are tender, reduce the heat to medium and add back in the sausage, beaten eggs, salt, pepper, parsley, basil and parmesan cheese. Stir to combine, and cook until the eggs begin to firm, about 1 minute.
  • Pack the sausage mixture into the bread shell and top with the cheddar cheese. Pop the pan under the broiler until the cheese is bubbling and the eggs are cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  • Allow the sausage egg bowl to cool for a few minutes before cutting into 6-8 wedges. Enjoy!


1. Substitute your favorite melting cheese for the cheddar.
2. Your favorite vegetables can be substituted for the peppers, about 2 cups
