[Recipe Quickie] Breakfast Baked Potato

Breakfast Baked Potato

When I posted this bad boy on instagram last week I dubbed it "Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Burrito... minus the burrito"  Relevent?  Yes.  Wordy?  God yes!  So let's just call it a Breakfast Baked Potato.  I'm pretty sure you could call it Killer Spud From Outer Space and it would still rock your digestive system.  So before I turn this quickie post into a full length novel, let's get on with the show!

Breakfast Baked Potato
1 baked [or microwaved!] potato
1-2 eggs, scrambled until fluffy and sprinkled with salt and pepper
plain greek yogurt
jalapenos
salsa

and...
anything you have in the fridge!
I practically live off beans so there are always black beans in my fridge for potato toppage
avocados or leftover guacamole are great too
shredded cheese - also delicious
I could go on, but you totally know how to rock this one all on your own =)

T-Rex Chefs you were waiting for me to mention bacon, weren't you?  Bacon... Crumbled Sausage... Ham... any breakfast meat that tickles your fancy will work.  As long as you acknowledge that veggies are superior, you can eat all the bacon you want without me passing an inkling of judgement.  Mwah!

ooh! and I highly suggest trying this with fresh salsa.  
I could probably dip a plain baked potato in salsa and call it a day.
[a really freaking delicious day]

Whether you make this for breakfast, brunch, or the ever-fabulous brinner, it's sure to rock.

  14. I am totally digging broading breakfast horizons...as in cereal, bagels and pancakes, while tasty are not the limits of breakfast fare (okay there are a lot of other things on the proverbial menu) but a baked potato is different and I like rule break(fast)ing. ~Deirdre
