Since they can be pre-made, no worries about time! Make a batch of these & you can have breakfast all week or have them for lunch. And I rarely take shortcuts but did this time. How? I used Ore-Ida packaged frozen hash browns. It's just too hot out.
These are also the perfect finger food for little hands!
Egg & Hash "Nests"
Makes 6 Nests
- Cooking Spray
- 1 cup Potatoes, cooked & shredded or use my shortcut!
- 1/4 onion, chopped
- 1 bell Pepper, chopped (I used half yellow & half red)
- S & P
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup Gruyere, grated
- 1 TBSp Chives, chopped
Spray a 6-cup sized muffin pan with Cooking Spray & set aside.
Combine the potatoes, onions & peppers, S&P in a bowl. Mix. Divide this mixture evenly among the 6 cups of the muffin pan, pushing down to form a "bowl" in each. Place in the oven for about 25 minutes.
While the "bowls" are pre-cooking, whisk together the 3 eggs, then add the cheese. After the 25 minutes, take out the cooked potato mixture & add the egg/cheese mix evenly divided onto all 6 bowls... Place the pan back in the oven for 15-20 minutes (Make sure the egg is fully cooked). Top with chives & ENJOY!
*Lishie tip- The versatility of this recipe... You can add cut up pieces of meat: ham, turkey, sausage, bacon, prosciutto, pancetta... Corned beef hash! Change up the cheese... swiss, cheddar, parmesan... Switch veggies- squash, asparagus, etc.... Use egg whites instead... Or you could even swap out the potatoes for sweet potatoes!
