Egg Stuffed Breakfast Potato
This is a easy dish dish that can be modified for lunch or dinner with a little creativity. If you prepare these ahead of time, they are quick to prepare for a crowd.
baked potatoes, slightly cooled
kosher salt and black pepper
shredded cheese (cheddar, gruyere, fontina, pepperjack, or other of your choice)
additional fillings of your choice: sauteed vegetables, bacon or ham, etc.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice a layer off the top of each potato. Use a spoon to gently scoop out insides, leaving a thin layer of potato against the skin and avoiding puncturing the bottom. Reserve scooped potato for another use.
Brush inside of each potato with melted butter and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Sprinkle a layer of shredded cheese into each potato and add fillings as desired (vegetables, diced meat, etc.) Fill each potato about 3/4 full. Crack one egg into each potato. Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper. Top with additional cheese and toppings if desired.
Place potatoes on a baking sheet and cook for about 25 minutes, or just until egg whites firm. The yolks should be soft so they meld with the remaining ingredients.
