Gluten Free Greek Breakfast Bread Recipe

Post image for Gluten Free Greek Breakfast Bread Recipe This is how my mind works.

I was looking through an issue of Donna Hay magazine and saw a recipe for breakfast bread. It was lovely looking yeasty dough with eggs cracked on top and baked. This made me think of Greek Easter Bread (bread with hardboiled eggs baked into it.) Which made me think of my friend Angie (she is Greek.) This made me think of South Africa (she is going there in a couple weeks.) Which made me think of elephants (I was charged by elephants when I was in Africa) and that in turn reminded me I need to buy new running shoes (elephants chasing, me running…) and that reminded me that my hubby has a pair of shoes he needs to return. I then thought of Nordstrom which in turn made me think about Angie again (she likes to shop) which made me think of coffee (we are supposed to meet up for coffee later.) Coffee made me think of my friend Anita (she has a great coffee maker) which reminded me that it was my turn to host Anita and her hubby for brunch.

Which brought me back to breakfast bread.

If all that mental bouncing around made you feel like taking a Dramamine, welcome to my world!

So I decided to try out my own, gluten free version of breakfast bread, just simpler and with a Greek flair.

Instead of making yeast dough I simply used Kinnikinnick Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix (ready in about 4 minutes!) I cracked on some eggs, sprinkled on feta cheese, tomatoes and oregano and in less than half an hour had an entertaining-worthy masterpiece that has everything you want in a breakfast!

This recipe technically serves four people but I ate half myself. That fact made me realize I really need to exercise, which reminded me about those running shoes, which made me think of Nordstrom which made me think of…I gotta go! I’m late for coffee with Angie!

Gluten Free Greek Breakfast Bread Recipe

Ingredients

1½ cups Kinnikinnick Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix
1 cup water
4 large eggs
9 grape tomatoes, halved
2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (omit for dairy free)
¼ cup kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
2 teaspoons fresh oregano leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil plus more for drizzling
Salt and pepper

Directions

Preheat oven 425 degrees. Crumple a piece of parchment paper, flatten it back out again and line an 8 inch square baking pan with it.

Combine the Kinnikinnick Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix with the water, mix on low to combine then increase mixer speed to high and beat for 2 minutes. Spread the dough into the pan evenly with a wet spatula. Using a wet spoon, create 4 indentations in the dough. Crack an egg into each indentation. Sprinkle on the tomatoes, feta, olives and oregano. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the top and sprinkle with some salt and pepper.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the bread is browned and the egg whites have set.

Drizzle each serving with a little more olive oil and a touch more salt and pepper if desired.

      Thanks Gabby!

    I bought some of this mix because I wanted to try a slider recipe you made. I love it. Thank you so much for introducing me to this. My whole family loves it. Can’t wait to try this bread out.

    • Carol Kicinski

      Glad you liked it Betty!

    This looks so delicious so why share it with three others! I’m sure I could manage to knock off a fair chunk of this. What a terrific breakfast. And I fear my mind works in exactly the same way – It’s like that Mel Gibson scene in What Women Want where he hears all those voices xx

    • Carol Kicinski

      Haha – I remember that movie! Glad I am not the only one!

    Ha! That made me giggle – you must have been tired after that mental work out :) Love this bread and so glad I found your blog as my mother in law is GF and I am always searching for inspiration.

    • Carol Kicinski

      Thank you Christie. Yep I need another cup of coffee!

    From Donna Hay to coffee isn’t such a stretch, but I don’t know if she’d like to be compared with an elephant! Don’t worry, I like how you got there :)
    Great recipe, great idea- no matter what the journey!

    • Carol Kicinski

      Haha, you are probably right and of course, Donna Hay has nothing to do with elephants! Scary how my mind works!

  • Prime Health

    Superlicious!

    • Carol Kicinski

      Thanks :)

    Do you have a homemade GF bread mix that I could use instead of the kinninni what-what brand? i have never seen it ’round here (in western Canada) that breakfast bread looks amazing! And just so everyone feels better, that whole thing would be my portion. With 2 cups of coffee : 0

    This looks really amazing, going to have to try it. Hope to find the bread mix!
