The recipe lends itself to variations such as substituting the baked egg in the potato shell with a poached egg. Add caramelized onions and Gruyere . Kick things up with some cayenne pepper. Princess Diana’s favorite breakfast dishes was an Egg Suzette aka BJP (Baked Jacket Potato): a baked potato scooped out with wilted spinach or creamed prawns, (tiny shrimp) in the bottom and a poached egg on top with a little hollandaise sauce and some potatoes piped around the edges.


  • 6 whole medium baking potatoes
    6 tbsp butter
    3 tbsp sour cream
    1 tbsp chopped chives
    2 tbsp crumbled bacon, crisp
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
    6 whole eggs
    1 cup grated cheddar cheese


  • Bake the potatoes using your favorite method and be sure to allow some time for them to cool down before the scooping.

    Take the “top” of the potato to mean lengthwise and not the small end.
    Scoop out the potatoes and blend well with the butter, sour cream, chives, bacon, and salt and pepper.

    Beat lightly and spoon back into the shells. Make a hollow in the top of each potato and into this drop a raw egg.

    Sprinkle lavishly with grated Cheddar cheese, and place in a 350°F oven long enough to cook the eggs and melt the cheese. Makes a delicious breakfast or supper dish.
