Tuesday Treats – Breakfast for Dinner

baked-egg-potatoes2Every once in awhile we really like breakfast for dinner. Usually, that means waffles but sometimes, it means something that might actually pass for dinner. I came across this recipe somewhere–and sadly I didn’t make note of the site. These are really good and fast if you have baked potatoes already. If not, put those puppies in the microwave for a few minutes. 😆

Sunnyside Up Potatoes

Ingredients to make one serving (double/triple/etc. for however many are sitting down at the table)
1 baked potato
1/2 Tbsp butter
1 egg
1 strip bacon crumbled or pre-crumbled bacon bits
2 Tbsp shredded cheese (cheddar, Gouda, mozzarella, whatever cheese is your fav)
1 Tbsp parsley, flakes or chopped if you use fresh
salt and/or pepper to taste

Using a paring knife, carefully cut off the top third of the potato. Hollow out the middle with a spoon to make a “bowl,” leaving the inside as thin or thick as you like. The more you scoop out, the more room for extra goodies.

Place the butter in the bottom of the potato bowl, break the egg and add without breaking yolk. Top with bacon, cheese, parsley, and seasoning.

Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the egg white is set. Serve immediately. LG likes a bit of Tabasco on the top. You can add fresh chopped spinach, mushrooms, ham, whatever extras you like to eat.

Who else eats breakfast for dinner? And what do you eat?

    Looks yummy! We do breakfast for dinner alot, esp since breakfast is so early for hubby. Pancakes, waffles, french toast, eggs and bacon. You name it.

  3. Oh yum. I have to try these. Ooo, and I bet if you fry up the potato you scooped out to have on the side… :drools:

    We do breakfast for dinner sometimes. Usually, I’ll make an omelet, cook up some of those hashbrown rectangles, fry some ham… And now I’m hungry.
