It's the most important meal of the day. Yes, we're talking about breakfast. And baked potatoes are a beloved and tasty dish most can agree are a dietary must. Blend the best of both, and you have a breakfast baked potato. Think of it like a happy marriage between all the best components a hearty breakfast offers — eggs, bacon, potatoes and cheese. Yep, it's all there, and the result is a flavor smorgasbord you and your loved ones won't soon forget.
Start with a perfect oven-baked potato (microwave if you're crunched for time). While the taters are cooking, cook up the bacon — skillet or air-fry — and prep the rest of the toppings. When the potatoes are ready, round up the troops and set out the toppings so everyone can customize their own breakfast baked potato. Bon appetit!Print
