These are really great! I baked mine in a traditional oven and seasoned them before wrapping in foil. Then took the "pulp" (chunks) from the baked potato and fried it a bit with the bacon. Filled the skins with the scrambled eggs, the bacon/potato mixture, topped with shredded chedder cheese and used chopped chives over the top but did not add the sour cream at that point. I took half to work and heated it up in the microwave for a "at my desk" breakfast. You can take a small container of sour cream if desired. I also made some with crumbled pork sausage, salsa, eggs, and grated Monterey Jack cheese. I mixed 1/2 of a foil package of taco seasoning mix with 1 cup sour cream to add some extra flavor and kick...These were AWESOME!

This is a wonderful recipe I have tried a few times. When I say tried I mean succeeded it didn't burn. Very healthy recipe and good for people on a diet.

This was delicious!! I always cook my eggs in bacon drippings. Topped the eggs with cracked pepper, sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, sour cream and fresh snipped chives. A great way to use up leftover baked potatoes.

Made these for breakfast and the family all raved over them. I first "baked" in the microwave and then place in the oven to brown the skins. The pulp of the potatoes I added to the bacon and onions then returned to the skins and topped with the eggs mixture and cheese. This did cause the eggs to run over the side and down into the baking dish but when it baked this was even good as the skins were resting on a bed of scrambled (or baked) eggs. Topped with salsa and sour cream and we were in breakfast heaven. So simple to pull together this will be a favorite from now on. 4-14-2014 As an update, we continue to have these and they've become a favorite of DH, so easy and so very good

We really liked these. My DD added salsa, which is also great. Next time, I need to leave more potato in the skins because they were more crunchy than we prefer. Overall, a great recipe!

These are great! I loved every single thing about them - including the spices that flavored the potato skins. These will be made at my house often. Thanks RedhairMac for a nice keeper. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
