How To Make Idaho Sunrise

Posted in : Breakfast on by : allison Tags: , , , , , , , ,

 

Ingredients:
Baked potatoes, slightly cooled
Melted butter
Kosher salt and black pepper
Shredded cheese (cheddar, gruyere, fontina, pepperjack, or other of your choice)
Eggs
Additional fillings of your choice: sauteed vegetables, bacon or ham, etc.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice a layer off the top of each potato.  Use a spoon to gently scoop out insides, leaving a thin layer of potato against the skin and avoiding puncturing the bottom.  Reserve scooped potato for another use.

Brush inside of each potato with melted butter and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.  Sprinkle a layer of shredded cheese into each potato and add fillings as desired (vegetables, diced meat, etc.)  Fill each potato about 3/4 full.  Crack one egg into each potato.  Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper.  Top with additional cheese and toppings if desired.

Place potatoes on a baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes.  Egg whites should be set and yolks soft.
