READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Sackville

When I first saw these my first thought was it seemed pretty strange putting eggs on top of potatoes but they are actually tasty things and very pretty looking as well.

I added a couple of strips of low fat turkey bacon in the bottom of the potato shells. Sprinkled some cheese on the top. Very good comfort food staple.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and bake the potatoes until they are cooked through and the skins are crisp.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan about 5 minutes before the potatoes are done.
  3. Add the broccoli and mushrooms and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes, then set aside.
  4. When the potatoes are cooked, cut each one in half and scoop most of the flesh into a bowl.
  5. Stir in the broccoli and mushrooms, along with the pan juices and season well.
  6. Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins and make a well in the middle.
  7. Set the potatoes on a baking sheet.
  8. Carefully crack an egg into each well.
  9. Don't worry if the egg white spills over a bit.
  10. Return to the oven and cook for 15 minutes until the eggs have just set.
