Number of Servings: 4


    4 medium baked potatoes
    2 green onions, green and white parts chopped
    4 large eggs
    4 egg whites
    1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup salsa

    Optional toppings:
    Greek yogurt
    Crumbled bacon
    Sauteed peppers
    Steamed, chopped spinach


We used baked potatoes leftover from a cookout. If you don't have any baked potatoes on hand, feel free to microwave them, then proceed with the recipe.


Carefully slice the tops off four baked potatoes. Scoop out most of the insides and set aside. Reheat the potatoes in the microwave or oven.
Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the green onions and cook for two minutes, until they start to soften. Add the reserved potato to the skillet and stir to combine with the onions.
Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs and egg whites in a medium bowl.
Pour into the skillet and cook, stirring often with a spatula, until the eggs are just set.
Stir in the cheese and remove from heat.
Place each potato on a plate and evenly divide the eggs among them. Top with one tablespoon salsa and serve immediately.

Serving Size: 4 potatoes, 1 per serving

    Safety warning! This sounds yummy and I will try it, however please, please, please... If you are saving baked potatoes that have been wrapped in foil, unwrap them before cooling. Botulism is a danger in stored unwrapped baked potatoes. Do your own quick research. Be safe. - 6/24/13

    Tasty, filling &easy, BUT calorie count is too low - 1/2 of lg naked baked russet potato=139 calories. Suggsted toppings NOT healthy. Better when potatoes are cooked in a tiny amount of butter/olive oil until a bit brown & crusty. I topped mine with a chopped roma tomato/picodegallo - 1/22/14
