Bacon, Egg & Cheese Baked Potato
A baked potato that you scoop out the inside and fill with butter, cheese, bacon, green onion, salt, pepper and then top with a large egg. This is a complete meal in a potato and was as much fun to make as it was to eat!
Scrub the potatoes under running tap water.
Pat dry with a paper towel and bake in a
preheated 350 degree oven directly on the
rack for one hour or until the potato is tender.
Do not wrap or poke holes in the potato
before baking. Remove from the oven and
let cool for up to 1/2 hour.
Slice a thin layer off of the top of each cooked
baked potato. Using a small spoon, scoop out most
of the inside leaving the potato intact at the skin.
Pour the melted butter into each
potato and swirl it around.
Salt and pepper the inside of the potato.
Fill the potato 3/4 full with
the shredded cheese.
Sprinkle on the green onion.
Spinkle on the cooked and
crumbled bacon pieces. Gently
press down on the mixture. You need
enough room to put the egg on top.
Crack an egg being careful not to break
the yolk and place it on top of the bacon.
Salt and pepper the top.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven
for 20 – 30 minutes until the egg white
is cooked and the yolk is still soft. If you
don’t like the soft yolk, cook it longer.
Garnish with green onion,
bacon and parsley (optional).

Definitely yes!!!! I could eat this for breakfast every day!!!
I make those twice-baked potatoes quite often, but never thought to add an egg. What a great idea! I think I would add a poached egg directly at serving time, rather than running the risk of overcooking the yolk in the oven. We like the yolks really runny.
That will work! I like them runny too.
Beautifully done Diane!
Thank you so much!!! They were so much fun to make.
Thanks so much!!
Is this even legal? It’s just too yummy looking!
I hope so because we devoured them!!! LOL Thanks Tierney!
This brings back memories of when the lowly potato was a superfood (before there were “superfoods”). Fast-food restaurants would offer a baked potato, and you could choose your add ons. Delicious. Your recipe sounds good and reminds me of potato boats that I recently had at an Italian restaurant, minus the egg. I’ll ask you the question I wanted to ask the server. What do you do with the scooped out potato? My parents suffered through the Great Depression; I have a hard time throwing food away.
Mashed with butter and Half N Half😉
Yum! I need to give this a try 🙂
Enjoy it was sure delicious Jacquie!!! Thank you so much!
I looked at the photo and simply said, “Wow.”
Awww thank you Matt!!! I couldn’t believe how delicious it was.

This is something I would like for sure Diane.
Oh man Linda it was a complete meal and so good!!
That looks wonderful.
They tasted fabulous, thanks Amanda!!!
Salivating now haha
Yum in the tum!
It definitely was Nancy..lol Thank you!
Yep I’m trying this. 🙂
It was SO good!!!!
I absolutely agree with you!
Baked potato skins were one of my absolute favorite snacks growing up, but we didn’t include the egg which looks like an awesome addition to a loaded potato!
It was nice to make a complete meal all in the potato. We were full after eating one. Thanks!
Thank you SO much!!!
That was one of the ideas I had for Christmas breakfast but didn’t use, nice to see it made. 2 of them with a salad would make a good supper. Well done and it looks great.
Thank you Graham!
