I randomly found one lonely potato this morning while searching for some breakfast for the kids and I. Automatically a few questions popped into my mind….
1. Why the heck do I only have 1 medium potato lying around?
2. If I take off a couple of these root things growing out of it, it would still be okay to eat right?
3. Would the kids notice if I just made this for myself?


2 out of the 3 questions were answered. Yes, you can take the roots off and not die and my kids most definitely noticed. I still have no idea why this potato was lurking in my kitchen though…..

Anyway, this dish takes a bit of time to cook, mostly because you have to wait for the potato to bake. This would be great for a brunch meal on a lazy weekend when you have nothing else better to do than whip up awesomeness in your kitchen. The recipe call for 1, but feel free to make a bunch of these.  You can also bake up a bunch of potatoes earlier in the week and save yourself a bunch of time!
