This recipe is fun to make with the entire family. Everyone can build their own potato with their favorite fillers. This can be a breakfast item, a side dish, or a complete meal if paired with soup. There has never been a complain whenever I make these delicious potatoes!

How to Make A Maine Sunrise: Egg-Stuffed Baked


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice a layer off the top of
    each potato. Use a spoon to gently scoop out insides,
    leaving a thin layer of potato against the skin and avoiding
    puncturing the bottom. Reserve scooped potato for
    another use.
    Brush inside of each potato with melted butter and
    sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Sprinkle a layer of
    shredded cheese into each potato and add fillings as
    desired (vegetables, diced meat, etc.) Fill each potato
    about 3/4 full. Crack one egg into each potato. Sprinkle
    with a little more salt and pepper. Top with additional
    cheese and toppings if desired.
    Place potatoes on a baking sheet and cook for about 20
    minutes. Egg whites should be set and yolks soft.
