Slice and Serve Brunch Subs

I was cooking for a church event this weekend, and I really didn’t feel like going “all out.” So here’s what I came up with: 2 loaves of French Bread (no, I’m not about to go all “5 loaves and 2 fish” on you), sliced in half and layered with either pimiento cheese or hummus (I found this really great hummus at Wal-Mart that has some sort of Indian spice in it- vair vair good!). Layer some ham or turkey on top, and don’t skimp. Then in a separate bowl, whisk together 7 or 8 eggs, add about a quarter cup of milk, a cup of cottage cheese, and some salt and pepper. Throw some veggies and sliced red onion into an oiled pan and top with the egg mixture, then shred some cheese on top before baking. When the egg “casserole” is done, let it cool and slice it up to place on the sandwiches! Finish it off with another slice of cheese.

For me, this was much easier than putting all of the individual ingredients on the bread separately. Plus, it made it feel a little fancier to have an egg filling inside the bread. These are ideal for making ahead of time, especially when you need to cook for a big group! Just slice up the long loaf after you let it cool a bit, and you’ve got cute little brunch subs to share!
