Egg N Baked Potato

Egg N Baked Potato


INGREDIENTS:
Olive oil cooking spray
4 large sweet potatoes (about 9 oz each), scrubbed
2 slice bacon
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 lightly packed cups baby spinach
1/4 tsp each sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
4 large eggs
1/4 cup grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1/2 cup natural Greek yogurt
2 tbsp chopped scallions or chives

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 180degrees. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil and mist with cooking spray. Prick potatoes with a fork and transfer to tray. Bake for 50 minutes, turning once, until tender. Set aside to cool for 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 150Degrees.
  • Meanwhile, mist a large skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-low. Add bacon and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel–lined plate. When cool enough to handle, chop into small pieces.
  • To skillet on medium-low, add onion and garlic and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes, until softened. Add spinach and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until wilted. Remove from heat.
  • If needed, cut a thin slice from long side of each potato so they sit flat on sheet. Cut an oval into the top of each potato and scoop out flesh using a spoon or a melon baller, leaving a shell about 1/3-inch thick. Reserve potato flesh for future use. (MAKE AHEAD: Potatoes can be baked, cooled and scooped up to 2 days in advance. Cover and refrigerate.)
  • Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper. Divide spinach mixture and bacon evenly among potatoes. Carefully crack 1 egg into each potato and top with cheese, dividing evenly. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, to desired doneness of egg. In a small bowl, combine yogurt and scallions and serve with potatoes.
