“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. This recipe is an original for my family. My 6 year old daughter is on spring break and I thought of a delicious dish that is easy to make and fun so that my kids can participate. I included all of the ingredients that we like and combined them into a bread bowl that we created. I precooked the bacon, Simply Potatoes diced potatoes with onions, and hollowed out the knot rolls. I supervised my daughter as she added the cheese, potatoes and bacon portions into the the knot rolls and painted the rolls with the bacon grease before I placed them into the oven. The look on her face preping the bowls is priceless. My two year old son even got involved by placing the bread stuffing, that was extracted from the rolls, into a bag so we can save it for bread crumbs in the future. They came out so crispy, and cheesy with the delicious potatoes an bacon flavor. Mom loved them, the kids loved them and I loved them as well.. These breakfast bowls are a keeper.”
