Baked Egg in a Baked Potato

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cut top third of potato off (hot dog style, like long ways).
  • Using a small spoon scoop out the insides of the potato. Leave as much or as little as you want on the sides.
  • Sprinkle a little salt, pepper, cheese and chives in the bottom of your potato.
  • Crack an egg into your hollowed potato.
  • Sprinkle with additional salt, pepper, cheese and chives on top.
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes depending how runny you want your egg. (I baked ours for 28 minutes because I didn't want any gooey white and the yellow was almost completely solid.)


**Be careful when taking the plastic off as the potato was steamed and some hot air will come out.
