Idaho Sunrise: Egg in a Twice Baked Potato

I have been super into brunch recipes lately, but brunch at my house is limited because our stove-top is down to only two burners. (I would get them fixed, but we’re going to renovate, so why bother?) Two burners = bacon and eggs. Or bacon and pancakes. Definitely not bacon, eggs, hash browns, sausage, AND pancakes. So I have to prep something in the oven. So I decided to try baking an Egg in a Twice Baked Potato which is also known as an Idaho Sunrise.

I had absolutely no idea they were called Idaho Sunrise Potatoes! But I love when breakfast foods have silly names!

These Idaho Sunrise Potatoes are definitely going on my “go-to brunch recipes” list. They were easy to make, very filling, and maybe most importantly, they free up my stove-top. These could also be made using sweet potatoes!

With this potato recipe, I’m looking forward to hosting our next Sunday brunch with friends. We haven’t hosted one in awhile and it’s one of my favorite things to do. I think we just got way too busy with work and weekends became time to do chores and run errands, work on our new house, and just get out of town. But hopefully we can host another Sunday brunch soon.
