Scrambled Egg Nests

 I will be hosting a weekly link party starting next week!! Showcase your Talent Thursday will be be posted starting every Wednesday evening.  Feel free to take a button from my sidebar and please join me and link up your crafts, recipes, tutorials, etc.  I hope to see you all next Wednesday night!!
Eggs and potatoes are great together for breakfast.  This breakfast combines the eggs with a hash brown nest.  This is a great breakfast for Easter brunch or any breakfast occasion.  These are also a fun finger food for kids.  I also liked how these were an individual sized breakfast.  We made these for breakfast for dinner, and we really liked them.  These are a great breakfast idea that combines all my favorite breakfast foods into an easy to eat serving.
Scrambled Egg Nests
(Recipe adapted from Family Fun)
3 1/2 cups frozen shredded potatoes
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 eggs
1 tablespoon Soy milk (can substitute regular milk)
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup cooked sausage links, diced
1 tablespoon bacon bits
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Parsley (optional for garnish)
1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2.  In a large bowl mix the potatoes, vegetable oil, and the salt.  Spoon about 1/3 cup of the potato mixture into each cup of a muffin tin.  Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of each cup.  Bake until golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes.  Remove the nests from the oven and allow to cool.
3.  Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs and the soy milk.  Heat a large pan over medium heat.  Add the butter to the pan and heat.  Add the eggs, bacon, and sausage and scramble the eggs.  
4.  Remove the potato nests from the muffin tin and place on a cookie sheet.  Fill each nest with scrambled eggs and top with shredded cheddar cheese.  Place the nests in a 375 degree oven until the cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.  Garnish each nest with parsley.

  8. Cute! Do you think making these in a muffin pan would work?

    • I did cook the potato nests in a muffin tin. I then transferred them to a cookie sheet once I added the eggs. I think that you could leave them in the muffin tin, but it may be a little bit harder to get out with the eggs in.
