A couple of weeks ago, Art and I took a road trip to Oregon to scout colleges for his degree. Art’s parents live in Central Oregon, so we stayed with them two nights on the way up and one night on the way back. It was fun to catch up and hang out.
One morning, Art’s mom made us Eggs in a Nest. I’m not a big fan of baked eggs (pretty much hard boiled or scrambled are it for me), but Art loved them so much I asked her permission to share the recipe on my blog.
1 bag frozen hash browns (shredded, not patties)
salt and pepper
4 large eggs (or however many you need for your family)
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Spray a muffin pan generously with cooking spray. Scoop 3-4 tablespoons of frozen shredded potato into each hole. Use your fingers to press down the sides and bottom in each muffin hole to make a nest. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper and spray the nest with cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, watching to make sure they don’t burn.
Allow the nests to cool. Crack an egg into each one. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake just until the whites are set, about 15 minutes.
