Toad in a Hole

Makes 4 servings.


These clever breakfast treats look nifty and taste divine.


4 hot, baked potatoes
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
4 eggs
1/4 cup cream or half and half
Chopped parsley or snipped chives
Grated Parmesan cheese


With sharp knife cut a thin slice horizontally from top of each potato. Scoop out about half of the pulp from each; reserve for another use. Set potato shells in shallow baking pan. Sprinkle cavities with lemon peel, salt, pepper and Swiss cheese, dividing equally. Crack an egg into each cavity; top each with 1-tablespoon cream. Bake in 325 degree (F.) oven about 20 minutes or until eggs are done to your liking. Sprinkle with parsley or chives, Parmesan cheese and additional pepper.
