Some Days You Just Want to Splurge (I won’t tell if you don’t!)
I don’t know about you, but I could live on potatoes! They’re such a comfort food!
I’ve seen many versions of this recipe but I think mine is the best. If you’re looking for a tasty, filling, fun breakfast (brunch or dinner) idea…here you have it, folks!
Have a great Saturday!!!
Sunrise Stuffed Baked Potato With Egg (and whatever else you want) 🙂
* There are no specific amounts or measurements (my kind of recipe), Just have fun with it (no pressure).
Potatoes-make sure they’re big enough to fill with the goods
One egg for each potato
An additional 1/2 TBSP butter for each potato (not melted)
Shredded cheddar cheese OR cheese of your choice
Bacon-cooked, cooled & crumbled
Salt & Pepper to taste
* Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
* Wash and dry potatoes thoroughly
* Brush each side of potato with melted butter and sprinkle (each side) with some kosher salt (this is what separates my recipe from the rest, so don’t skip this step!)
* Pierce potatoes with a fork-you don’t want your potatoes to explode in the oven (I usually pierce in three spots on each side).
***I normally wrap my potatoes in tin foil when I bake them in the oven–DON’T do this for this recipe! You want the skin to get somewhat crispy & if you use tin foil you get a softer skin.***
* Place potatoes right on oven rack & bake for about an hour OR longer (it all depends-make sure they’re soft). Do not microwave (it’s just not the same, people!)
* Take potatoes out of oven and let cool (about 20minutes)
* Keep your oven on @ 350 degrees!!
* Once potatoes are cool turn on their side & cut about 1/3 off and hollow out with a spoon (save the scooped out filling & make mashed potatoes later or tomorrow for dinner-how’s that for killing two birds with one stone?!)
* Throw in a 1/2 TBSP butter in hollowed out potato
* Crack ONE egg in each potato (don’t break the yolk)-top with cheese, cooked & cooled crumbled bacon, and green onions (you can use any toppings that suit your fancy! I mean, the sky is the limit)
* Season with salt & pepper
* Place stuffed potatoes on a baking sheet & place in oven
* Bake for about 25minutes.
* Check on them after 20 minutes and see where they’re at. You want the white part of the egg to be cooked (unless you like your eggs runny).
