Baked Eggs & Cheesy Mashed Potato Bowls

Who else still has a fridge full of leftovers?
This is what is often referred to as the curse of Thanksgiving.  Or is it?  
I prefer to think of leftovers as free food, sans cooking for the week if you will.  I love leftovers, in fact, people that don't can't be trusted...clearly they have poor judgement.

This morning I decided to turn my abundance of potato leftovers into breakfast.  How you ask?  By folding in grated cheese, herbs, and baking them in the oven with an egg on top.  

Potatoes + Eggs = Breakfast of Champions

Baked Egg & Cheesy Mashed Potato Bowls

2 cups mashed potatoes
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated monteray jack cheese
4 eggs
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350F.  Spray 4 small ramekins with non stick spray.  Set aside.
In large bowl mix together potatoes, cheese, herbs and salt & pepper.  Divide mixture among prepared ramekins.  Create a hole in each with the back of a spoon.  Crack one egg into each and season with pepper.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until egg whites have set, potatoes are warm, and yolk is of desired consistency.  If eggs still are not set you can place under broiler for a minute or two to speed up process.

Serves: 4
