This simple breakfast option pairs many early morning favorites.For a breakfast packed with protein and energy-boosting carbs, enjoy a baked potato stuffed with egg, bacon, and cheese, and easily customization!


 2 large mostly-baked* potatoes (Russett or sweet potatoes)
 1 tbsp butter
 2 eggs
 2 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
 2 tbsp shredded cheddar or gouda cheese
 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
 salt and freshly ground black pepper

Lay the first baked potato on its side, and use a knife to carefully cut off the top third of the potato. With a spoon, hollow out the middle of the potato to make a “bowl”, leaving the potato as thick or thin as you’d like. (Just remember, the more room you leave, the more room for eggs, bacon and cheese!) Repeat with the second potato.


Place 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the middle of each bowl. Then gently break an egg into each bowl, careful not to break the yolk. Top with bacon, cheese, parsley, and then season with salt and pepper.


Wrap in tin foil and place in campfire for 20-25 minutes, or until the egg whites are set. Serve immediately.
