Pinterest And Potatoes

Stuffed Breakfast Potato  9

I really like Pinterest.
A lot, actually.

Click the logo to visit me on Pinterest!

It’s the online magazine we all can share, and we all retrieve different information. I especially love that we can each tailor it to exactly what we’re looking for.

For those of you who haven’t yet checked it out (Mom and Aunt Nat, I’m talking to you), it’s worth a look! You’ll love it!

Let me get back on track. I was checking out some pins about breakfast foods (primarily potatoes) on Monday and I came across something so simple, yet I’d never seen it before.

Searching Pinterest

I clicked on the photo to see the recipe and I immediately wanted a bite!

Here’s the best part: this is one of those dishes, that is so simple, and contains very typical breakfast fare…. and I’m guessing you all may have these ingredients in your kitchen *right now*. 

I contacted the original author of this lovely recipe, and asked if I could share her breakfast with you, which she very sweetly agreed to. I must say, I like her already… plus she refers to the inside of a potato…as “innerds”.  (Just like me)

So, without further adieu, may I present the breakfast that just may become your favorite…. Stuffed Breakfast Potatoes, from Savory Experiments. The following is directly taken from her blog, and all verbiage is hers:

Don't these look amazingly simple and delicious?

 Stuffed Breakfast Potatoes

I baked potatoes specially for this purpose the night before. It works better if the potato is fully cooled or refrigerated over night. You can also add on making a few more when making them for another purpose or use leftovers. Perfect baked potatoes are easy, see note below if you don’t already have them prepared.

  1. This looks deelish!!
    I remember sitting in the theater for toy story 2 and when Mrs. Potato Head kept listing all the things she stuffed in the Mister’s back— then my girlfriend and I started cracking up!!! The kids sitting next to glared at us like ‘what’s the matter with you ladies, that’s not even that funny!”. Well, I dunno kids…. I guess grown-ups get amused differently than you guys do!


  2. I’m having Easter brunch at my place on Sunday…how nice to not have to think about what to make! Thank you!


  3. Oh my gosh! I can’t believe I have never seen this before and I am totally smitten with it. My daughter would adore this and her birthday is tomorrow…birthday breakfast being planned now. Thanks! Going to check your lemon cake post next…


    1. Happy Birthday to your daughter!
      I feel the same way about this… why isn’t this on every breakfast menu? 😉
      Glad you like the idea, and I’d love to hear what your daughter thought of it =0)
