Breakfast Potato Skins

(4 servings)

  • 2 large potatoes - baked
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Jack cheese
  • 4 slices bacon - cooked crumbled
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • sour cream (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chives (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice baked potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out about most of the flesh and set aside to make other recipes.

Place skins on a cookie sheet and cook for 6 to 8 minutes so the skins get slightly crispy. Remove from oven.

In a skillet on medium heat, scramble eggs until they just begin to set and no more. Remove from heat. They will cook completely in the oven.

Top each potato skin with equal amounts of egg, followed by crumbled bacon and cheese. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 10 minutes... until cheese is melted and eggs are completely set.

Serve alone or garnished with sour cream and/or chives.

If you like potato skins and you like breakfast, get ready to be blown away. We made these as an appetizer for a Super Bowl once. Everybody loved them.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank MooCow for this recipe.
