Breakfast Baked Potato

When I posted this bad boy on instagram last week I dubbed it Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Burrito… minus the burrito  Relevent?  Yes.  Wordy?  God yes!  So let’s just call it a Breakfast Baked Potato.  I’m pretty sure you could call it Killer Spud From Outer Space and it would still rock your digestive system.  So before I turn this quickie post into a full length novel, let’s get on with the show!
Breakfast Baked Potato
  • 1 baked [or microwaved!] potato
  • 1-2 eggs, scrambled until fluffy and sprinkled with salt and pepper
  • plain greek yogurt
  • jalapenos
  • salsa

  • and...
  • anything you have in the fridge!
  • I practically live off beans so there are always black beans in my fridge for potato toppage
  • avocados or leftover guacamole are great too
  • shredded cheese - also delicious
  • I could go on, but you totally know how to rock this one all on your own! =)

  • T-Rex Chefs: you were waiting for me to mention bacon, weren't you? Bacon... Crumbled Sausage... Ham... any breakfast meat that tickles your fancy will work. As long as you acknowledge that veggies are superior, you can eat all the bacon you want without me passing an inkling of judgement. Mwah!
  1. Bake or nuke a spud to fluffy perfection.
  2. Slice vertically.
  3. Stuff with all your favorite breakfast foods!
ooh! and I highly suggest trying this with fresh salsa.
I could probably dip a plain baked potato in salsa and call it a day.

[a really freaking delicious day]

    WOW! Whgat a great idea, and it looks awesome! I love potatoes because they keep me full, but am not too much on fried potatoes for breakfast. What a great way to get my potatoes in without frying them! Thanks girl!

    I am totally digging broading breakfast horizons…as in cereal, bagels and pancakes, while tasty are not the limits of breakfast fare (okay there are a lot of other things on the proverbial menu) but a baked potato is different and I like rule break(fast)ing. ~Deirdre
