  • 4 medium russet potatoes (about 8 ounces each)
  • ½ cup pesto
  • 2 cups sautéed spinach (see Associated Recipes)
  • 4 large eggs, fried or poached
  • 4 teaspoons crumbled cooked bacon


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on Medium, turning once or twice, until soft, about 20 minutes. (Alternatively, bake potatoes at 425°F until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.) Transfer to a clean cutting board and let cool slightly.
  2. Holding them with a kitchen towel to protect your hands, make a lengthwise cut to open the potato, but don't cut all the way through. Pinch the ends to expose the flesh.
  3. Top each potato with some pesto, spinach, an egg and bacon. Serve warm.
