Stuffed breakfast potato skins are perfect for your weekend breakfast. They take a little time to make, but they are so worth it.
I have always been a breakfast person. There is no way that I could start my day without eating something for breakfast. Take a look around this blog and you will see that I definitely love my breakfast foods. It all started when I was a kid. My mom wouldn’t let us out of the house without eating breakfast in the morning. That has stayed with me throughout all these years. Stuffed breakfast potato skins are one of my new breakfast favorites.
Mike and I are people that love to eat eggs and potatoes. It is not uncommon to find us eating eggs and hash browns for a quick dinner during the week. Yes, we love breakfast foods for dinner, but we also love to eat them in the morning. Usually, that happens on the weekends.
I decided to make these stuffed breakfast potato skins for breakfast on Sunday morning. They are a little time-consuming, so they are perfect for that morning when I don’t have a lot going on.
I started out with microwaving the potatoes until they were fork tender. Then the potatoes are cut in half and the most of the potato is scooped out. These stuffed breakfast potatoes skins are then stuffed with the potatoes, pork sausage, eggs, and cheese. It is a super delicious way to start your day.
