So it's not very often I do this, but lately I've been trying a lot of pins. I'm sharing this one, because it was an ultimate favorite, that I've recently tried (I have honestly made this over 5 times, since my first time trying it.)
I initially found this recipe on Pinterest, and I followed the recipe initially, from HERE.
You start off by getting the potato, cleaning it, and cutting the top off, as so:
I have tried it with the bacon variation too, and I loved it just as much! The only thing I found was that with the recipe with bacon (I added a ton of bacon!) the recipe, called for it to be cooked for 20-25 minutes. But with all of the bacon on top, the egg wasn't cooking all the way through in the time frame. So I actually had to keep them in for about 32-35 minutes. With the cheese version that I made here, the egg did cook all the way through in the 25 minute range. So if you are trying it with lots of bacon, be sure to cook it a little longer.
So after the egg step, add on your cheese, and your spices. I personally used taco blended cheese, a 5 spice seasoning mix, and just a dash of salt and pepper. I also rubbed the potato in olive oil.
Then you put the potato in the oven (350 degrees) for 25 minutes, or until the egg is cooked through (the egg should have a hard boiled look and feel too it. If you stick the inside with a fork you can usually tell.)
And then in 25 minutes.. Voila!
but here was the inside of the potato, with the delicious cheesiness, and the egg! In the recipe it says to put the egg, and then the cheeses and stuff. But I did cheese, egg, then more cheese.. lol.. What can I say? I love cheese!
I know this is something different, but if you guys like seeing my finds, and trys, I'll try sharing a bit more often when I try new stuff :) - So please let me know.
