Do you guys get in meal ruts? You have plenty of food in the fridge and the skills to make something, but you just don’t know what to make? I feel that’s the hardest part about cooking for most people–coming up with the ideas.

I guess that’s where food blogs like this come in handy right? (Have you checked out my weekly meal plans yet? I share a printable shopping list too!)

I pretty much spend all my time thinking of fun meals and snacks to make for my family. After all, if I’m not thinking ahead then I’ve got two toddlers on my hands who wont calm down until they’re fed!

I love ideas like these Breakfast Potato Boats that use simple, quality ingredients, and are easy to throw together. You can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

What I really love is how you can customize these Breakfast Potato Boats for each family member. Throw in some extra veggies for mom, some crushed red pepper flakes on dad’s, and extra cheese for the kiddos.

The one ingredient my family always agrees on is Canadian bacon. We LOVE it. I like the Jones Dairy Farm Canadian bacon best because, as you’ve heard me rant in the past, ingredient quality is super important to me.

Their Canadian bacon is all-natural and made with no preservatives or MSG, and it really shows when it comes to freshness and flavor. Find Jones Dairy Farm products near you by searching here.

The potato boat process starts with making baked potatoes—I slather them in a little olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Prick a hole on top and stick them right in the oven (no tinfoil necessary).

The end result is a nice, crispy, seasoned skin and perfectly tender potato. Then, slice the potato in half, lengthwise, and scoop out some of the inside to form a “boat”. (I reserve the extra potato filling for potato soup or mashed potatoes.)

Add your favorite toppings, and crack an egg on top. Bake it for a few minutes and you’ve got yourself one delicious, healthy meal!

Ingredients
  

  • 2 russet baking potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil , divided
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons butter , room temperature
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices Canadian bacon , chopped
  • 1 bell pepper , chopped (or use mini bell peppers of different colors)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 avocado , peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 1 green onion , chopped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees F.
  • Slice in half, lengthwise. Scoop out some of the flesh from the potatoes. (You can discard it or use it to make mashed potatoes, or potato soup). 
  • Brush butter inside each potato half and season with salt and pepper. 
  • Top each with ¼ cup of cheese, chopped Canadian bacon, and bell peppers. 
  • Gently crack an egg on top, and use a spoon if you need to help push some of the toppings down to allow the egg white to sit inside the potato. Season with a little more salt and pepper.

    I actually madevthis, instead of just saying it looks good! Mine was not so pretty, but it was tasty. I had to adjust, because of time, I microwaved the potato (1/2 for 2 people). I do not like Canadian Bacon, so used one frozen bratwurst, sliced very thinly, then sauteed with peppers and onions while the potato cooked through the first time. I broke one of the yolks to one half of the potato, but it still worked out fine. Then I took the leftover potato I scooped out, and mixed it with the little bit of meat and peppers I had left and added it with the avocado and a couple of heirloom cherry tomatoes from my garden. After the eggs (fresh from the hen house yesterday!) baked, (which took just three minutes longer than I expected), I added the potato/avocado/ tomato mixture to the plate for serving. This is a great combination of healthy foods, that satisfied our nutritional needs, and taste buds. Thanks so much for posting it!

  2. Was so disappointed in the results! Even without much cheese or ham in the potato shell the egg ran out all over. Wasted 2 eggs trying to get the shells filled. They also took a lot longer than 8-12 minutes.
    Unless you have a very large potato to stuff this is not a good option.

  3. I always get in “meal ruts”, especially when it comes to breakfast on the weekend…I feel like my typical work week breakfast won’t do. These look absolutely delicious, can’t wait to try them!

  4. If my husband has to pick a favorite food, I bet it would be potatoes. I’m sure he would FLIP if I made these! Heck, we’d eat them for dinner!! Looks yummy 🙂
