  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Wash and scrub the potatoes. Arrange on a baking sheet and pierce all over with a fork. Bake potatoes 1 hour, until fork-tender. Keep the oven on.
  2. Carefully (they're hot!) cut each potato in half lengthwise and scrape insides into a bowl, keeping the skin intact as best you can. To the same bowl, add butter, milk, cheese, salt, and pepper and mash until mostly smooth.
  3. Spoon potato mixture back into potato halves. With the back of a spoon, create a well in the center of each potato half.
  4. Place potatoes back on baking sheet and crack an egg into each well. Bake 12–13 minutes until whites are set. Garnish with green onions.

Recipe Tips

Try seasoning the potato mash with spices like 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, or 1/2 teaspoon dried herbs like basil or oregano. Try another cheese like shredded cheddar or pepper jack.
