  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350º F. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add water and butter and prepare mashed potatoes as directed on package.
  • 2
    Once mashed potatoes are ready, cover with 2/3 of the shredded cheese. Next, make 4-6 wells in the mashed potatoes for the eggs. Crack eggs into the wells and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with remaining cheese.
  • 3
    Place entire skillet in oven and bake until whites of eggs are just set but yolks are still slightly runny, about 12 to 15 minutes. Top with bacon and sprinkle with green onions. Serve.

Expert Tips

  • To make this heartier, stir cooked ground sausage into the mashed potatoes.
  • To make this ahead of time, prepare everything as directed (but don’t add the eggs) and refrigerate. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Add the eggs and then bake as directed.
  • If you have leftover mashed potatoes from your holiday feast, use 2 to 3 cups of those!
