Optional Toppings

  1. Shred your potatoes using a hand grater or food processor, and immediately put them into a bowl of cold water. Let soak for a few minutes. Place the potatoes on a dish towel, wrap them up and squeeze out any excess water, (you could peel them first, but I find that the peel isn’t noticeable in finished recipe.)
  2. Once the potatoes are prepared, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  3. Combine potatoes, cheeses, and seasonings together in a bowl. Divide mixture among 1o muffin tins (about 1/4 heaping cup per muffin tin). Pack potatoes with fingers tightly, shaping them into nests.
  4. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the edges have browned. Remove from the oven and gently crack one egg into each nest and season eggs with salt and pepper to taste. Top with crumbled bacon if desired.
  5. Bake again for 15-18 minutes, or until the egg whites are firm and the yolks are at the desired level of doneness. Let them cool in the pan, before taking them out of the muffin tin.
  6. Remove the Hash Brown Egg Nests by running a knife along their edges.
  7. Serve warm, topped with a bit of parsley or any topping of choice.

Makes 10 nests. 2 nests per serving
