Healthy Vegetarian 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? Obnoxiously so!

So let’s just call it a Breakfast Baked Potato.

I’m pretty sure no matter what you call it it would still rock your plate sooooo before I turn this quickie post into a full length novel, let’s get on with the show!

Keyword Breakfast Baked Potato
Servings 1 serving
Author Jenn Laughlin – Peas and Crayons


  • 1 baked or microwaved potato
  • 1-2 eggs scrambled until fluffy and sprinkled with salt and pepper
  • plain greek yogurt skip for paleo
  • jalapeños
  • 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 as is shredded cheese. Have fun with it!


  1. Bake or nuke a spud to fluffy perfection.
  2. Slice vertically.
  3. Stuff with all your favorite breakfast foods!

Recipe Notes

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!

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 delicious day)

Whether you make this for breakfast, brunch, or the ever-fabulous brinner, it’s sure to rock.

If you get a chance to try this baller breakfast baked potato, let me know! Leave some love in the comment form below or tag your photos with @peasandcrayons on Instagram so I can happy dance over your creation. I can’t wait to see what you whip up!
