  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Poke potato with a knife to allow air to escape while cooking. Wrap potato in a damp paper towel. Cook in a microwave oven until tender, 4 to 6 minutes per side, depending on size.
  3. Cut off top of cooked potato lengthwise. Scoop out flesh, leaving about 1/2-inch worth of 'crust.' Sprinkle lining of potato with 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese. Break egg into potato and top with bacon, remaining Cheddar cheese, and chives.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until egg is set and cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes.

Excellent way to meet everyone's taste using different ingredients and the remaining potato can be made into pancakes for those wanting something sweet. Perfect!

So yummy! I used egg whites only and had a side of sour cream and tomatoes. Great lunch idea. Also, after cutting the potato lengthwise I baked it along side with shredded cheese and chives on t...

I prob will make this again, although I need to make some size adjustments like size of potato - seemed to shrink - and the eggs were too large for the potato shell - things slid out some - but...
