Tried & True Tuesday ~ Breakfast Potato Skins

Today's Tried & True recipe is a fun twist on potato skins.
This is what I made with a leftover baked potato!  

Potato skin stuffed with bacon and cheese, topped with an egg!   So easy, so yummy...everything I love for breakfast in an edible potato bowl!

Breakfast Potato Skins

  • Baked Potato at Room Temperature
  • Egg
  • Bacon, Ham or Sausage (fully cooked)
  • Cheese - Cheddar, American, Colby Jack (whatever you like)
  • Seasoning - Salt, Pepper, (I use Penzeys' Country French Vinaigrette)
  • Optional Ingredients - Green Onion/Onion, Chives, Sour Cream - have fun!                 
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. 
Carefully cut the top off of the baked potato.  Scoop/hollow out potato and set aside. Layer potato with desired fillings.  Cheese, bacon, cheese.  Add a little of the scooped potato, leaving enough room for an egg.  Crack egg, and place it on top.  Sprinkle with a little more cheese and bacon.  Place on middle rack of oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until egg reaches desired texture.  I don't care for runny eggs, so I cooked mine a little longer. 


Next time you make baked potatoes, make a few extra, 
you'll be happy you did in the morning!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love this idea for brunch. I'm a big brunch fan so I love a recipe like this with everything in one 'vessel'. Then I can make a bunch of pancakes or french toast and brunch is served.

Thanks so much for sharing with Foodie Friends Friday.
