1. To prepare your Baked Egg Potato Bowls, first preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

2. Then wash the whole potatoes under running water thoroughly (I did that with a brush that I only use to clean my vegetables).

3. Bake the potatoes until they are cooked through and soft inside (it will take about 40 minutes).

You can check whether your potatoes are cooked through by running a knife through their centers – if the knife runs rather smoothly and there’s not much resistance, the potatoes are done.

4. Remove the potatoes from the oven and let them cool to the temperature that will allow you to handle them with your hands.

5. Decrease the oven temperature to 350 °F (175 °C).

6. Slice a layer off the top of each potato. Using a spoon, gently scoop out the insides, leaving a thin layer of potato against the skin and avoiding puncturing the bottom. Reserve the scooped potato for another use (I made us some mashed potatoes for dinner).

9. Sprinkle a layer of bacon, thin slices of green onions and some grated or shredded cheese into each potato (I used grated Edam cheese and some cubed blue cheese). Fill each potato about 1/2 full.

10. Crack one egg into each potato.

We enjoyed our Baked Potato Bowls with some very simple garlic yogurt dip. To prepare it, just combine low fat yogurt with some fresh or powdered garlic and a little bit of lemon juice. Then add salt to taste – and that’s it!

Enjoy, dear friends! This is good!

Love,

    That’s a wonderful idea. Thanks for the recipe.
    I also tried a similar recipe once, however I stuffed the potato boats with the same potato inside, only added some bacon, cheese and seasoning. It was delicious anyway, but I’m sure this is better. I’m already drooling.
