Ever wake up feeling like you want to eat a small boat made entirely out of breakfast food? Well adorable little ships carrying eggy-goodness aren’t just going to sail into your kitchen, you’ve got to build them yourself. This, my friends, is THE breakfast boat.

Step 1

Bake bread for 10 minutes at 350°F in order to make it easier to work with.

Step 2

After letting the bread cool, cut a long hole in the top, scooping out the insides like you work at Panera and you’re making a bread bowl.

Step 8

While your boat is baking, toast a slice of sandwich bread and then cut it diagonally. Using toothpicks or meat skewers, attach the two pieces of bread together and make a mast at their base. Take a moment to contemplate your actions and consider whether edible ship building is a feasible career path.

When the bread is done, move it to a large serving plate or leave it on the baking tray. Set your sail.
