Baked Eggs on a Bed of Potatoes With Bacon

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

I used leftover mashed potatoes that had cheese in it for a nice extra.


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. On a cookie sheet pan place strips of bacon and bake until crisp.
  3. Meanwhile heat potatoes in microwave oven for 1 or 2 minutes.
  4. Remove bacon set aside. Drain the fat and discard, leaving just a touch.
  5. Place potatoes on pan and make small indents with the back of a spoon.
  6. Crack eggs into each indent.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Bake until eggs are to desired doneness.
  9. Carefully place on plates.
  10. Serve with the bacon.

Yummy breakfast, and with leftovers quick and easy too! My potatoes had a little cheddar and sour cream in them. I made a single serving in an individual ramekin, and I put ready-to-eat bacon strips around the inside edge before putting in the potatoes and eggs, so everything was cooked together. Very nice - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT6, Zwizzle Chicks

I made this for dinner for my daughter, my 21 month old twin granddaughters and me. It was 94 degrees here in Longmont, Colorado and I didn't want to heat up the house with the oven so I made the recipe in a sauté pan on the stove top. I just used regular mashed potatoes and then put a lid on the pan for about 10 minutes. Everyone agreed that this is DELICIOUS! Another fantastic "Rita Recipe" for sure!

This was a wonderful brunch! For the potatoes, I used Recipe #230245 and it was perfect. I did have to cook it considerably longer to get the eggs set to my taste. This is a dish for which I will plan leftover potatoes--often.
