  • baked potatoes, slightly cooled
  • Hatch Green Chile
  • melted butter
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • shredded cheese (cheddar, gruyere, fontina, pepper jack, or other of your choice)
  • eggs
  • additional fillings of your choice: sauteed vegetables, bacon or ham, etc.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Cut each potato in half. Use a spoon to scoop out insides, leaving a layer of potato against the skin and avoiding putting the spoon through to the other side, poking a hole. Reserve scooped potato for another use, maybe green chile mashed potatoes.?
  2. Brush inside of each potato with melted butter and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Sprinkle a layer of shredded cheese into each potato and add fillings as desired (hatch green chile, diced meat, etc.) Fill each potato about 3/4 full. Crack one egg into each potato. Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper. Top with additional cheese and toppings if desired.
  3. Place potatoes on a baking sheet and cook for about 20 minutes. Egg whites should be set and yolks soft.
