Its always fun to surprise DH with an unusual breakfast. He loved this concept and this breakfast. I didn't use large bakers. I used smaller baked potatoes that I had leftover from another meal. They held the egg just fine. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be filling, because they were small, but they were just right. I served with sausage patties and fruit. I think I might try using larger potatoes next time and and fill with a little cooked sausage, then add the cheese and egg. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out about half of the pulp from each potato half. Reserve potato flesh for another use - maybe mashed potatoes for dinner.
  2. Remove a thin slice of potato from the bottom to stabilize the potato, if necessary. Set potato shells in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle each cavity with salt, pepper and 1 tbsp cheese. Break an egg into each cavity.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until eggs are cooked as desired. Sprinkle with parsley or chives and pepper. Serve immediately.
