Use salami as a bowl to hold whole baked eggs that are sprinkled with red pepper flakes, Parmesan cheese and parsley for an on-the-go breakfast.

Sometimes — actually, most — mornings in my house are super busy and chaotic. When the hectic times start, the one thing I space on is breakfast. It's so important to feed your family breakfast, but let's face it — sometimes it's just not a priority when things get distracting.

This simple and easy breakfast idea is perfect for making ahead of time or prepping the night before and then just baking first thing in the morning. Salami is a fun change from the everyday ham and eggs and adds great flavor.
