  1. Preheat oven to 400F and bake the potatoes until they are cooked through and the skins are crisp.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan about 5 minutes before the potatoes are done.
  3. Add the broccoli and mushrooms and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes, then set aside.
  4. When the potatoes are cooked, cut each one in half and scoop most of the flesh into a bowl.
  5. Stir in the broccoli and mushrooms, along with the pan juices and season well.
  6. Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins and make a well in the middle.
  7. Set the potatoes on a baking sheet.
  8. Carefully crack an egg into each well.
  9. Don't worry if the egg white spills over a bit.
  10. Return to the oven and cook for 15 minutes until the eggs have just set.
