IDAHO SUNRISES

IDAHO SUNRISES
per person
1 Large Baked Potato (cooled)**  
1 tablespoon butter, melted 
1 Jumbo egg 
1 strip bacon, cooked and crumbled 
Shredded or sliced medium cheddar cheese
Sliced green onions

salt and pepper to taste
sour cream

  • Slice the top of each potato.
  • Use a small knife to cut around the potato edges leaving the potato as thin or thick as you prefer.
  • Spoon out the insides turning the potatoes into a “bowl”.  Be careful not to go so deep as to cut through the bottom. Remember that the more room you leave, the more goodies you can put inside.
  • Swirl melted butter around the inside of each potato and then season with salt and pepper.
  • Gently break egg into potato careful to NOT break the yolk.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Top with bacon, cheese and green onions.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until egg whites are set.
  • Serve immediately.

NOTE: I tried one potato with the “goodies” on top and one with the “goodies” on the bottom and we really could tell no difference, so it’s personal preference.

**I scrubbed the potatoes really well and then rubbed them with salted butter, celery salt and garlic powder before wrapping them in foil to bake.
