Two-baked potatoes can be used to make sweet potato boats and stuffed sweet potatoes. I have simplified the process by pre-cooking the potatoes in the microwave. After potatoes have become very tender, you can cut them in half and mash them with a fork.

Bake the sweet potatoes in the oven and top them with an egg. This results in tender mashed potatoes and runny yolks. Next, add chopped bacon, all-bagel seasoning, green onion, and homemade basil pesto to the boats. Pesto and eggs are a great combination, and it feels fancy.

Basil Pesto Freshly Made at Home

It is easy to make homemade pesto and it tastes so much better than the store-bought variety. This recipe calls for you to make your pesto. Basil pesto is made by my mom using fresh basil, Parmesan cheese, and pine nuts. It also includes salt, pepper, and garlic. All ingredients are combined in a food processor to make a smooth but not too granular sauce.

You can also use a single-serve or standard blender if you don’t own a food processor. It is essential to blend slowly enough, or the mixture will become a creamy paste.

The brunch hall of fame includes tender sweet potatoes, crisp bacon, crispy eggs, green onions, bagel seasoning, fresh basil pesto, and runny baked eggs.

Ingredients

  • Four strips of bacon chopped.
  • Three chopped green onions
  • Basil pesto: 3-4 Tablespoons
  • Seasoning for a bagel with a dash of everything
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Use a fork to poke the skin of the potatoes. Microwave sweet potatoes for 10 mins, flipping halfway through. Alternatively, you can bake sweet potatoes at 425°F for 45-50 minutes.
  • Cook bacon on medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side in a large saucepan. To drain, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Cut into small pieces and place aside. Bacon should be crisp.
  • When potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, cut into equal halves. Place halves on a baking sheet. Use a fork to mash the potatoes until they are soft and tender. Season each potato with salt and pepper. The skins should not be removed from their filling. Make a trench in each potato half and crack an egg in the middle. It is okay if some of the egg whites spill over the edges. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the egg whites have become opaque.
  • Take the potatoes out of the oven and sprinkle them with bagel seasoning, chopped bacon, and green onion. Top each one with pesto. Serve immediately

Pesto

  • Blend all ingredients for pesto except the olive oil in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Keep the motor running and add olive oil slowly until well combined. Pesto should not be too thick or too thin. Set aside. You can make this a day ahead. You can also use a single-serve or standard blender if you don’t own a food processor. It is important to blend it slowly enough, or it will become a thick paste. Continue to pulse the mixture until it becomes smooth and granular. If the oil becomes too thick, add more oil.

This recipe is excellent with fresh basil pesto. It is easy to make and freezes well.
