Baked Eggs in Potato Skins

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

How is it already Thursday?!  I hope everyone else’s week is going by as quickly as mine, although I almost wish I had more time this week!  In any case I’ve been running back and forth to the kitchen all day today.  It’s finally gorgeous and sunny(but not too hot!) so we spent some time out in the backyard on the swing set and in the sandbox and I still need to get to work on some more popsicle recipes.  Even though it’s supposed to rain some more it is definitely popsicle weather now!

So I thought I liked baked eggs more than I actually do.  In reality I like my whites very well cooked and my yolks not so much.  Baked eggs don’t get as firm as I like which is why I like frying eggs usually(and why I liked these more as leftovers than fresh).  At the same time,  I still enjoyed these for a fun breakfast(or even breakfast for dinner!) and my son really did too.  The fun thing about these, is if you let them cool enough to handle, the potato skins let you pick your eggs up and eat them with your fingers.  Fun!  Drizzle these with ketchup and serve along with some fruit and have an awesome breakfast!

This is a fun recipe! Love it. I bet this would be great with a sweet potato, too. 🙂

I love baked eggs, but have never made them in potato skins before. This is a great idea!

LOVE this idea!!! The old me would’ve totally added bacon to the deal.

But I never said that…

The new me wants to try this with spinach… wow, what a yummy breakfast! 🙂

Love this idea! combined two of my favorite foods!
Do you think this would taste any good with a sweet potato to make it a little healthier? Or not really?

I think this would be awesome with a sweet potato! Different of course, but it would be great in it’s own way! I think I need to do a sweet potato version with some different flavors 🙂

This is an amazing recipe. My mouth instantly is telling me this is the food I’d love almost too much. I’ve recently discovered baked eggs and now the method has become the staple in the kitchen. I can’t wait to test these. Heidi, thanks so much for the recipe. By the way, yes the time trickles away way too fast – hope, you’ll have time to slow down a tad this summer.

Wow……I can’t believe I have never thought of something like this before but now that you have enlightened me onto something like this I will be letting my imagination go wild! I can’t wait until morning! I am going to bake the potatoes tonight so that I will be all ready to go!!! Thanks so much!

These blew me away. I love eggs, and I love potatoes, so this caught my eye immediately. We bake our “fried eggs” so this goes along with that idea. I plan to post my version soon, and will give you all the credit girl. Thanks so much, and I will let you know when I do it.

Made these as breakfast for dinner about a week ago. They turned out tasty but cleanup with not so easy! Did you put anything on your pan? I featured the recipe on my blog where I write about trying out ideas I find on Pinterest. Check it out!

So glad you enjoyed them! I’m sorry about the cleanup. I was careful not to get any egg on my pan, was it the egg that was such a problem? Maybe I should recommend lining with foil for easier cleanup. Thanks for the feedback! 🙂
