  • 12 pull-apart brioche dinner rolls
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 6 slices bacon or ham*
  • 1 jalapeño pepper thinly sliced on a mandoline
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • sea salt
  • freshly cracked pepper


  • Use a small serrated blade to hollow the centers out from the rolls (save for another use such as croutons or bread crumbs).
  • In a bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper and the jalapeño slices.
  • With a butter knife, slather mascarpone on the insides of the rolls, then set each into the hollows of a muffin tin.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line rolls with the bacon or ham and trim to fit. It is okay to have a little overlap—tastes great and looks just as good.
  • Carefully pour in egg mixture.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the eggs barely jiggle when agitated.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes and serve.
