Twice-Baked Breakfast Potatoes for Two

Leftover baked potatoes were the inspiration for this impromptu meal. The bacon and sausage combo make it a hearty breakfast dish, but it makes a filling lunch or dinner as well. —William Brock, Amelia, Ohio

    2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large baking potato
  • 3/4 teaspoon butter
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 ounces bulk pork sausage
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Additional sour cream, optional

Directions

  • Scrub and pierce potato; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high until tender, 15-17 minutes, turning once.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add the egg; cook and stir until set. Remove and set aside. In the same skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside.
  • When potato is cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving thin shells. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with sour cream. Stir in the bacon, 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tablespoon chives, parsley, salt, pepper, egg and sausage. Spoon into potato shells.
  • Place on a baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, at 375° until heated through, 12-15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and chives. Serve with additional sour cream if desired.
