Good Friday Egg Nests
So meatless Friday’s are almost over. For today’s breakfast, I decided to revisit a recipe from a few weeks ago.
I didn’t get a picture of the ‘nests’ before putting them in the oven, but will show you what they looked like when they came out in a minute. In the mean time, here are the rest of the ingredients.
Eggs, Sea Salt, Carrots, Feta Cheese, Shredded Cheese Blend
The ‘nests’ were made with about 3 cups of frozen shredded potatoes, a healthy dose of sea salt, mixed with 2 whisked eggs. The mixure was then pressed into large muffin tin sprayed with cooking oil to keep them from sticking. Here are the nests after they’ve been cooked in a 400*F oven for 22 minutes…
Each cup was then filled with the shredded cheese (and a couple of them with Feta Cheese!), and broiled them until the cheese was all melty-gooey and golden. Top each cup with scrambled the eggs (simply seasoned with sea salt), filled the nests and garnished with some shaved carrots…
My little Princess is not a fan of eggs, so her serving was a ‘Birds Nest Quesadilla’…a cheese filled basket. I didn’t tell her that there was a decent amount of egg IN the nest. she liked it. What she doesn’t know, won’t hurt.
Good eatin’ everyone!
