They say the two best days of a boat owner’s life are the day you buy your boat and the day you sell it. But that’s actual boats. With these breakfast boats, the best day of your life is when you eat them. Because these handy little things are fun to make, impressive to look at, and incredibly delicious. Make these Cooper® Sharp breakfast boats for your family and you’re sure to make some waves. Seriously, you’ll sail right into their hearts. We could go on, but you get the idea.


• 6 pretzel rolls
• 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
• 1 cup smoked ham, diced*
• 3 eggs (or 1 cup liquid egg)*
• 12 slices Cooper® Sharp White cheese
• salt and pepper to taste


• Preheat oven to 375°F.

• With each pretzel roll, cut out the center to form small bread bowls.

• Line a baking pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat parchment with cooking spray to further prevent sticking. Place pretzel rolls onto baking sheet, spacing evenly.

• Into each pretzel roll, place a layer of Cooper® cheese (1 slice).

• In a small bowl, crack the eggs and beat until whites and yolks are combined (skip if using liquid egg). Add 1 tablespoon egg mixture to each pretzel roll.

• For each pretzel roll, top egg mixture with 1 tablespoon chopped spinach, then add 1 tablespoon diced ham. Top each breakfast boat with 2 slices Cooper® cheese, tearing slices as necessary to fit cheese into the pretzel rolls.

• Place baking sheet into oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese starts to brown and egg is fully cooked.

• When breakfast boats are done, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let rest on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.

• Serve your cheesy breakfast boats and enjoy!
