This has gotta be one of my favorite things ever…..Baked potato meets perfectly scrambled eggs. Oh joy!

Fire up that oven and heat up your skillet for Scrambled Egg Baked Potatoes.

Get your hands on a big bag of your favorite potatoes.

I use Russet here.

Bake them until they are absolutely perfect. Don’t forget to poke them first so they don’t explode in your oven.

That would be an evil mess & no one has time to deal with that.

Let them cool down a smidge. Then you get the scoop out the insides.

Leave 1/2 inch around each potato & make a boat. This way you get just enough potato with every bite of eggs.

Set aside the rest of the scooped out potatoes to enjoy with butter & sour cream. Good? Great!

Be sure to have some cheese handy too.

Fire up the skillet to scramble those perfect eggs. Soft ‘n creamy is how we love our eggs over here.

Once the eggs are done (don’t let them overcook) scoop them into the potato boats, top with cheese and broil for a few minutes.

All done! Enjoy your Scrambled Egg Baked Potatoes with a side salad and some fresh fruit too!

Scrambled Egg Stuffed Baked Potatoes


  • 4 Russet Potatoes, cleaned
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper
  • Smoked Paprika
  • 3/4 cup Red Onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • a few ounces Grated Cheese (we like sharp Cheddar)
  • 8 large Eggs, whisked with 1 tablespoon Water
  • Fresh or Dried Herbs (Rosemary, Oregano, Thyme are great)


  • Preheat oven to 425 F with the rack in the middle. Pierce potatoes several times with a sharp knife. Rub potatoes with olive oil, garlic salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Put on a baking sheet and bake for about 45-60 minutes until fork tender. Baking time depends upon the size of your potato.
  • Set aside potatoes until they are cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes in 1/2 lengthwise. Spoon out the insides carefully leaving a 1/2 inch border of potato. Like a boat.
  • In a large fry pan over medium high heat ~ saute onion and bell pepper with some garlic salt, pepper and smoked paprika until soft and fragrant. Reduce heat to medium low and add the eggs. Stir frequently so eggs remain creamy, stir a small handful of herbs. Remove from heat just before they are done cooking.
  • Stuffed Potatoes
  • Fill potatoes with egg mixture. Top with cheese. Broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream or mascarpone cheese, bacon pieces and chives.

These look delicious! I can’t wait to try them =) I recently make some breakfast sweet potatoes and someone commented that they like scrambled eggs in white potatoes for breakfast – I haven’t been able to forget about it since!


2 Marla November 26, 2012 at 6:20 am

Rachel, hopefully you can try them soon – so fabulous!!


3 Bev @ Bev Cooks November 26, 2012 at 6:19 am

OOOOOMG why is my face not ON that.


4 Rosa November 26, 2012 at 6:20 am

Those baked potatoes are awesome and must taste really good!

I wish you packed my lunch, the end.


6 A Bit of Brooklyn November 26, 2012 at 6:55 am

Yes! Love this idea! Looks mouth watering and fairly easy, thank you!


7 Mary November 26, 2012 at 7:23 am

These sounds delicious, Marla! I love that they are stuffed with scrambled eggs instead of baked eggs. Thanks for the link too. Have an excellent week!


8 Heather (Heather's Dish) November 26, 2012 at 7:24 am

Seriously genius – like a breakfast casserole gone so very very right!


9 Cookin' Canuck November 26, 2012 at 7:31 am

I just made a stuffed potato dish over the weekend, but am now seriously considering making your version for dinner. Love your styling, Marla!


10 kim@hungryhealthygirl November 26, 2012 at 8:18 am

I love this idea! I’ve never had scrambled eggs with potatoes, but I love both. I bet this would also be great with sweet potatoes. Beautiful pictures, too by the way!


11 Mia November 26, 2012 at 8:27 am

Mmm, mmm, mmm. That sounds delicious!


12 Laura (Tutti Dolci) November 26, 2012 at 9:11 am

What a scrumptious breakfast idea! Pinned!


13 Bree November 26, 2012 at 9:32 am

What a great –and simple–idea!


14 Teawench November 26, 2012 at 9:34 am

These do look & sound awesome. I tried something like this but baking eggs in a bread boat. It was a horrible failure. This sounds like it would work a heck of a lot better. My husband would love these to eat in the morning in his truck.


15 Rikki November 26, 2012 at 9:34 am

Oh my goodness…this must be the most delicious thing ever. I love baked potatoes and I think I’d love them even more stuffed with scrambled eggs. I think I’m going to make this next time I’m craving breakfast for dinner! :)


16 Averie @ Averie Cooks November 26, 2012 at 9:47 am

This would be my husband’s dream dinner! And in a sea of sweets this time of year, and I love them, it’s nice to see a savory post :)


17 JulieD November 26, 2012 at 9:54 am

Wow, Marla! I love this…I want this now! :)

you’re delivering my breakfast tomorrow right?! love THIS Marla!


20 Meagan @ Scarletta Bakes November 26, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Gosh do I love this! Such a wonderful potato dish that I would enjoy at any meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner!


21 Lynda November 26, 2012 at 1:13 pm

This is a brilliant way to serve potatoes – one stop shopping, I mean eating, in a russet.


22 Marla November 26, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Ha! Love it Lynda. Waste not huh! The greenest way to eat is to have food as your bowl 😉


23 HeatherChristo November 26, 2012 at 1:18 pm

this looks so good and comforting right now- I love it!


24 Cathy @ Noble Pig November 26, 2012 at 1:28 pm

What an amazing idea…it’s brilliant actually.


25 Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar November 26, 2012 at 4:34 pm

These are so lovely! What an awesome idea.


26 Denise Browning November 26, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Nice dish and presentation! The potatoes and eggs are very familiar to me because of my Portuguese heritage. This is definetely a comfort dish. Mmmm! With temperature in the lows here in Texas, this would make a must-have for breakfast.


27 Joanne November 27, 2012 at 5:18 am

Wow! These look fabulous! I love having eggs for dinner and those potatoes are the perfect vessel for serving them!


28 Carlas Confections November 27, 2012 at 9:14 am

Twice baked potatoes are one of my favorite recipes! My mom used to always make them with bacon, mushrooms, cheese and onions, but I love the idea of adding scrambled eggs to make it a breakfast dish. So yummy! Those mini potatoes are so adorable too! 😀


29 Deliciously Organic November 27, 2012 at 2:11 pm

I can’t think of anything more comforting than a stuffed baked potato. And they’re so easy to prepare!!


30 Robert November 29, 2012 at 5:36 am

Great recipe, fantastic photography! Wow!
This is pre Christmas shopping dinner tonight!


31 Jenny December 1, 2012 at 4:40 am

I love scrambled eggs and I love baked potatoes – never would have thought to put them together! Must give this a try!


32 Jeanette December 3, 2012 at 7:36 pm

What a fun idea – I’d never think to stuff potatoes with scrambled eggs. Great meatless meal!


33 aida mollenkamp December 6, 2012 at 11:19 am

Why have I never thought of this? I’ve done scrambled eggs in a baguette but never in a potato. Thanks, Marla, for this inspiration!


34 Ursula February 1, 2013 at 9:48 am

How about cooking the potatoes in the microwave to save time?


35 jo clifton February 1, 2013 at 12:50 pm

Looks and sounds yummy. I am going to try it sometime.


36 katie March 30, 2013 at 7:44 am

Oh wow–I’m in love with this idea! What a great brunch item!
