Why I Love This Recipe

"These cute hash brown egg nests with avocado are fun to make with shredded hash browns and cheese baked into a crispy nest then topped with an egg, crumbled bacon and even more cheese." Farah-The Cooking Jar

Ingredients You'll Need

15 oz. Frozen Shredded Hash Browns (thawed)
1 ¼ cup cheddar cheese (shredded and divided)
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Salt and pepper (to taste)
8 Medium Eggs
2 Slices Bacon (cooked and crumbled) or 2 Tbsp. bacon bits
½ Tbsp. Parsley (chopped)
2 Avocados (sliced and chilled) (optional)


Preheat oven to 425°F
Mix the shredded hash browns, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, olive oil and salt and pepper to taste in a mixing bowl.

Grease a non-stick regular muffin pan and divide the hash brown mixture. Use your fingers to pack them tightly and shape them into nests.

Bake at 425°F or until the edges have browned and the cheese has melted, about 15 minutes.

Top with crumbled bacon, remaining 1/4 cup cheddar cheese and parsley.
Reduce oven temp. to 350°F.

Bake at 350°F until the egg whites set, about 13 to 16 minutes.

Let it cool, gently slide a knife along the edges and use a fork to lift it out of the pan.

Dish and serve with chilled avocado slices (optional).
