On a whim, I stuffed eggs into potato shells as a way to use up leftover baked potatoes. It’s the brunch dish people ask for the most. —Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri

  • 4 large baking potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Sriracha Asian hot chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 large eggs

Nutritional Facts

1 stuffed potato half: 384 calories, 20g fat (10g saturated fat), 230mg cholesterol, 571mg sodium, 35g carbohydrate (3g sugars, 5g fiber), 17g protein.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. Place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high 10-12 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in.-thick shells. In a small bowl, mash pulp with butter, sour cream, hot chili sauce, salt and pepper.
  3. Place potato shells on a parchment paper-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Spoon potato mixture into potato shells, creating a 3/4-in.-deep well, building up sides with potato mixture as needed. Break one egg into each well. Bake 25-30 minutes or until egg whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Top with bacon, pimientos and cheese; bake 2-4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with green onions. Yield: 8 servings.
