Baked Potato Eggs for lunch

Leave a comment

I took a moment over lunch today to cook something. Not a regular occurrence lately but I was studying and having a terrible time getting my head around something. I needed a break and coincidentally we needed lunch.

This was thrown together using tasty Italian sausages left over from last nights BBQ dinner and a couple of potatoes that were spectacularly unsuited for the purpose. I will have this again but in future (planning permitted) I will have some baking potatoes on hand…

Regardless, it was tasty and easy. The most time consuming bit being the baking of the potatoes initially.

Baked Potato Eggs

2 baking potatoes (mine were too small and too thin skinned)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
2 precooked turkey sausages, diced (whatever you have on hand works good too)
2 large eggs

Heat oven to 200C. Scrub the potatoes and pierce each with the tines of a fork.
Bake until fork-tender, about 45 minutes. Carefully cut the top off of each potato lengthways.
Scoop out the insides and stir in the cheese. Fold in the sausages.
Spoon the mixture back into the potato halves, creating a hollow in each centre.
Break 1 egg into each hollow.
Arrange on a baking sheet and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until set.

The stuffing doesn’t nearly all fit in especially if you are leaving enough room for an egg. I heated the excess through and piled it on the plate to nestle the potato in to serve. It helped stabilize the potato and made a decent lunch indeed.
