Ahh, cheesy bread. I think any way you slice it (or tear it), it’s a comfort food I can really get down with. I recently saw someone on Instagram make Georgian Khachapuri — essentially breakfast pizza — and I knew I had to try it.
This was the perfect opportunity to give my new Our Place Oven Pan a spin! I also sautéed some shallots on the side in my adorable, matching Mini Always Pan and roasted some tomatoes with olive oil (yep, and MORE cheese) in one of the bakeware dishes et voilà…a yummy breakfast-turned-lunch of deliciousness that was as fun to make as it was yummy to eat.
And now I will wax poetic about all of these new Our Place pieces that made the Khachapuri magic happen!

Our Place Oven Pan + Stoneware Baking Dishes
The Our Place Oven Pan is not only lovely to look at (that checkered silicone mat, tho!) it’s also so useful in the kitchen. It goes in the oven for baking, roasting veggies, poultry, or other mains and sides, but it also doubles as a griddle pan! Yep. You can use it on two burners of your stovetop. It’s perfect for breakfast and has the same great safe non-stick surface as the Always Pans and Perfect Pots.
And while the Oven Pan does come separately, you can buy Our Place’s Ovenware Set that also comes with gorgeous stoneware baking dishes in three sizes: Tiny Bake (loaf pan), Side Bake, and Main Bake.
This whole set replaces your sheet pan, cookie sheet, griddle, roasting pan, loaf pan, lasagna pan, baking dish, casserole dish, AND single-use parchment paper! I mean…
And if you store the silicone baking mat on the oven pan, you can then safely store the stoneware nestled right on top, saving even more space. Amazing. It has helped me go through the ol’ kitchen cabinets and clean out some less-than-ideal bakeware, replacing them with these few gorgeous pieces.
The Always Pan Now Comes In A Mini Version!
As if it weren’t great enough to have the beautiful, safe, non-stick Always Pan in our kitchen arsenals, it now comes in the cutest, handiest mini version! This new size is perfect for making eggs, reheating leftovers for one or two, toasting nuts or spices, heating a sauce, sautéing a small amount of anything or making a grilled cheese for just yourself (a winter lunchtime fave of mine!)
And while yes, this post is sponsored, I am legit loving my whole collection (and not only because it’s super cute and matches!)
I’ve had my two Always Pans and Perfect Pot for a couple of years now and I adore them all. They cook beautifully over medium heat (no need to use high) and they brown and reheat great, too. One of mine lives on the stove and I find myself pulling out the second pan all the time, too. Now that I have the Mini Pan they just all take over the stove and make me so happy.
P.S. If you don’t already have an Always Pan and you’re interested in both sizes, you can save $50 by shopping their Duo Set. Love it.
Always Pan in all these great colors!
Cleaning Tips + Color Fun: These pans are so easy to use and easy to clean. Once cooled, I just wash them with a gentle sponge and a bit of soap. It’s easy enough to keep them looking lovely for years. And seriously, you can’t beat the color options of the original Always Pan and the Perfect Pot! I have all my pieces in the lovely Spice color (my Always Pan is the older discontinued Terracotta color but still blends in beautifully!)
A Simple, Delicious, Cheesy Brunch Recipe
Khachapuri is a bread boat with cheese and an egg on top…if you buy pre-made bread dough like I did, you can’t really mess it up. In no way am I pretending to be an expert on Georgian food but I like a cooking challenge and learned a few things in the process of making this! First, we needed a cheese that was a bit meltier. Second, I probably could have cooked it a tiny bit less…but it was still nothing short of delicious. Be sure to mix it together while everything is still hot (since you probably won’t be taking photos of it, haha).
(a non-traditional version)
- 1 bag (16 oz) refrigerated pizza dough. (Our grocery store carries pizza dough in bags next to the ready-to-bake fresh pizzas…or Trader Joe’s dough is also great!)
- 3 eggs: 1 whole egg, 2 yolks*
- 1/2 cup shredded or chunks of fresh mozzarella OR soft Georgian Sulguni cheese if you can find it (or any soft melting cheese you like)
- 1/4-1/3 cup feta, crumbled, but I like to buy the block. (The feta adds nice saltiness!
- Olive oil
- Chives (chopped) and sautéed shallots, for serving, optional
Heat oven to 450 degrees and place the silicone baking mat on your Oven Pan. Oil your hands and drizzle a little bit of oil on the silicone baking mat. Split the dough in half and shape each half into a boat with decently thick sides to hold in the cheese (see photos). Let the boats rest on the counter. Note: You may need to let your dough warm up just a bit when you take it out of the fridge.
Mix together both cheeses and a whole egg. Stir it all together and then divide the cheese-egg mixture between boats. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted but not too browned. Place an egg yolk on each boat immediately after removing them from the oven. Top with chives and serve with shallots. Dip the edges of the bread in the yummy cheesy-egg-yolk mixture!
*I am not a big fan of undercooked egg whites, so I just did the yolks only. But you do you! (The internet tells us there are many different regional variations of Khachapuri and the egg on top is typical of the Adjaruli version.)
On the side:
We really loved eating this Khachapuri with tomato & feta served on the side — some acidity to balance out the cheesy-bready goodness. You could just roast some tomatoes in olive oil too, and skip the additional feta, but we used the other half of our feta block to roast with the tomatoes so it didn’t go to waste.
This was super fun to make and you better believe I’ll be exploring the cheese aisle to try out other melty-rich options. Definitely look up a traditional Georgian recipe — the cookbook Supra: A Feast of Georgian Cooking is written by a Georgian chef — and let me know if you find some you like. Thanks, friends! And I hope you try out this “breakfast pizza” for yourself!
