  1. Cook the Bacon:
    • In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until crispy and golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess grease. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the Egg Mixture:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Bowls:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease four ramekins or oven-safe bowls.
    • Cut the tops off the burger buns or Kaiser rolls and hollow out the centers, leaving a sturdy shell.
    • Place the hollowed-out buns or rolls in the prepared ramekins or bowls.
    • Divide the cooked bacon evenly among the bread bowls, filling them about halfway.
  4. Add the Egg Mixture:
    • Pour the egg mixture over the bacon in each bread bowl, filling them to the top.
    • Sprinkle the grated Gruyère cheese over the top of each bowl, ensuring even coverage.
  5. Bake the Bowls:
    • Place the filled bread bowls on a baking sheet and transfer them to the preheated oven.
    • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the egg mixture is set and the cheese is melted and golden brown.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Carefully remove the Bacon and Egg Bowls from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
    • Garnish with chopped parsley or chives, if desired, and serve hot.
