My four young children are experts eating with their hands. These “brunchskins” with veggies make easy finger food they love to handle. —Mindy Campbell, Rapid City, Michigan

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 10 min.
MAKES: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 medium baking potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 each small sweet red, orange and green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup plus 6 tablespoons sour cream, divided
  • 6 Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, cooked and crumbled or 1/3 cup bacon bits
  • 3 green onions, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Scrub and pierce potatoes with a fork; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high 15-18 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut a thin slice off the top of each potato; discard slice. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in.-thick shells.
  3. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add peppers, mushrooms and red onion; cook and stir 4-6 minutes or until tender. Stir in salt, pepper and 1 cup pulp (save remaining pulp for another use). Add eggs; cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese and 1/4 cup sour cream.
  4. Spoon egg mixture into potato shells. Place on a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake 10-12 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Top with remaining sour cream; sprinkle with bacon and green onions. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
