Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more at room temperature, for serving 

8 slices thick-cut bacon 

1 red bell pepper, diced  

1 small yellow onion, diced  

2 teaspoons garlic powder 

2 teaspoons paprika 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

4 slices white bread, toasted 

4 large eggs 

Chopped chives, for garnish 

Directions

  1. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork and brush them with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Put on a microwave-safe plate and microwave, flipping halfway, until fork-tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut into bite-size pieces and set aside. 
  3. Add the bacon to a sheet pan and bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Set the bacon aside on a paper towel-lined plate. 
  4. Add the potatoes, bell peppers and onions to the sheet pan and toss to coat in the bacon fat. Sprinkle with the garlic powder, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper and toss again to coat with the spices. Spread out in a single layer and bake, tossing halfway through, until the onions and peppers are softened, about 20 minutes.  
  5. Cut a 2-inch round from the center of each slice of toast; reserve the toast and rounds. 
  6. Push the vegetables aside on the sheet pan to make a space in one corner and arrange the toast in 2 rows in the empty corner. Spread the vegetables evenly around the toast and add the bacon on top of the vegetables.  
  7. Divide the remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter among the 4 holes in the toast and crack an egg into each. Place the 4 rounds around the toast. Bake until the eggs are set, 7 to 10 minutes. Top the eggs with chives and spread each toast round with butter.

Cook’s Note

Cutting the potatoes, peppers and onions the same size helps to ensure even cooking.
