Potato Breakfast Boats Recipe

Happy hump day foodie friends! The old saying goes, "I love BREAD!" Well, if you're Oprah it does. I've said it before, and I'm saying it again, "I love Breakfast!" (side note I also love bread). I'm obsessed with breakfast, you can tell by the many breakfast posts that I've posted on this here food blog. Breakfast is one of the thirty love languages that I speak. I also love saying..."why doesn't this exist for breakfast?" For example, breakfast pasta. Don't worry, I made that here. So naturally, when I was looking through a food magazine recently and saw a picture of twice baked potatoes, I said, "why haven't I ever had that for breakfast before?" 

I was so excited to tackle this new creation, and I immediately knew that the topping had to be Holly's Sausage Breakfast Gravy! Be sure to check that recipe out to know how to make the gravy for this recipe.

I got a little overzealous and excited to try this recipe and I ended up coring the potatoes before I cooked them. Don't do that. Follow the directions. Bake the potatoes for about an hour in the oven prior to slicing and scooping. It's much easier to work with, but also know that it worked out for me. I just ended up baking them for a half hour before stuffing them.

Honestly, breakfast is so great. I love breakfast for breakfast, breakfast for lunch and breakfast for dinner. Adding sausage gravy, potatoes, eggs and cheese into one dish is OOTW! (That means out of this world) The entire time I was making this dish, I wanted to eat it! It smelled and looked so good.

The picture above is the different stages of stuffing. First you stuff the potatoes with the eggs and potatoes, top with cheese and then cover in gravy. I didn't have toothpicks so I used wood skewers to help prop them up. Honestly, I'm just very much a problem solver.

This recipe is totally going to be a new staple for any breakfast lover. I know you love things that are so tasty and can be used for any meal. Now I need more breakfast inspo, let me know, what are some fun and different things you make for breakfast?
