Egg-Stuffed Breakfast Potatoes
Prick potatoes with a fork in several places. Microwave on High for 5 minutes. Turnover and continue cooking on High until tender all the way through, about 4 minutes more. (Alternatively, bake at 350 degrees F until tender, 50 minutes to 1 hour.) When cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Chop enough of the potato flesh to equal about 1 cup. (Save the remaining potato for another use or discard.)Advertisement
Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, scallions and the chopped potato. Cook, stirring often, until the pepper softens, 3 to 4 minutes. Add eggs, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until set, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Fold in cheese.
Generously stuff each potato half with about 1/2 cup of the egg mixture. Let cool completely, then individually wrap with heavy-duty foil. Refrigerate or store in a cold cooler for up to 1 day.
Prepare a campfire and let it burn down to the coals. Place the wrapped potato boats 4 to 6 inches above the coals; cook, turning once or twice, until steaming hot and completely heated through, 10 to 15 minutes. Open carefully. (Alternatively, unwrap and reheat in the microwave.)
To make ahead: Store in a refrigerator or cold cooler for up to 1 day.
