Baked Cheddar Eggs & Potatoes Recipe

I love breakfast for dinner, especially this combo of eggs with potatoes and cheese started in a skillet on the stovetop and then popped into the oven to bake. —Nadine Merheb, Tucson, Arizona
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 pounds red potatoes, chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a 10-in. ovenproof skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add potatoes; cook and stir until golden brown and tender. Stir in parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. With back of a spoon, make four wells in the potato mixture; break two eggs into each well.

"I do this all the time, (without the cheese though) but without the oven. On medium heat, I add the eggs & put the lid on the skillet. After a minute or two, I add an ounce or so of cold water, recover & when the eggs are soft basted, it's time to eat!"

"My 5 year old wouldn't eat the eggs, but that's only because he only likes scrambled eggs or quiche, but my husband and I loved it. I will definitely make it again and I like that it's versatile: onions, peppers, sausage or bacon could easily be added if desired."

"Loved this! I added onion and peppers to the potatoes, but next time I'll wait until the potatoes are almost done because the onion and peppers got a bit too brown. I popped some bacon in the oven while this was cooking and served with toast. So good!"

"I make this a lot from a recipe of my mom's. It's almost the same except I scramble the eggs and throw in leftover ham or corned beef (if there is any). I don't bake it, just do the skillet thing. Sometimes I'll splurge and use bacon. I love it. It's so filling that if I have this for "brunch," I don't need to eat supper."

Suggestion: substitute 1 tsp seasoned salt for the salt & pepper."
