Breakfast Cheese cake

If you have children or are having a gathering, or even just want to have some fun some morning you might enjoy serving your eggs this way. My wonderful wife is a member of facebook, and someone there shared this idea with her but this is my recipe. What you do or I did was to peel a couple of potatoes, then using a grater I made my own Hash Browns. I might suggest that if you are going to make these it might be advisable to purchase store bought as I found that when I made my own they seemed to have an over abundance of moisture, which I used a bunch of paper towels to absorb as much as I could.You then pack the hash browns into a cupcake pan and then pressing them around the sides, making like a pocket that eventually you will fill with scrambled eggs. Spice your eggs any way you want or even add cheese. The can be served with a dollop of sour cream which I skipped.

What you will do

  1. I begin by choosing my potatoes. I have used both Red and Russet potatoes. You might prefer a diferent variety or whatever you have accesss to. I know that places like McDonalds uses a particular brand for their french fries.
  2. I usually choose 4 medium size potatoes which I carefully scrub with a scotch brite green (Medium) scrubber. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then after the potatoes are clean I place them on a dish towel to absorb the water that has accumulated while they are waiting to be peeled.

Next you Grate the potatoes

Next after you have peeled your potatoes and have them ready, you need to use a grater and beging grating them into hash browns . I usually use a plate or small bowl to grate into.

Potatoes grated

Once I have my potatoes grated I use paper towels to matt the potatoes to remove as much water as I can. This allows me to have better results when baking as there isn't so much water to be cooked out.

Next step

Next after you have as much moisture soaked out of the grated potatoes as possible begin placing them into your cup cake tin.

Place hash browns into your cupcake tin

When you place your hash browns into the cupcake tin pack them around the sides and bottom. Having completed this you now place the tin into your oven (preheated to 350 degrees).

Prepare your eggs

As you cook the Hash Browns I begin to prepare my scrambled eggs. I usually use a fork and a bowl to blend my eggs before I beging to cook them.

While preparing your eggs

I have this cast iron pan (Griswald) that I love cooking with. They maintain an even heat even after you take them away from the burner.

Prepare Eggs

I usually purchase and use Large or extra large eggs. Grade AA

Pre Heat

While scrambeling the eggs I usually pre-heat my pan to cook the eggs in. This way the pan is ready the minute that you begin to cook, no waiting. Remember to add a smidgen of oil so that the eggs do not stick. I Sometimes use butter along with the smidgen of olive oil, as the olive oil will keep the butter from burning if it gets extra hot.


Cast Iron Pan

I have a number of cast iron pans and a griddle. they are wonderful to cook with.

Scramble Eggs

After you have scrambled the eggs pour them into your pre-heated pan and using a spatula cook the eggs. I usually cook to be dry so as to not wet the hash browns any.

Now would be a good time to begin toasting your bread if you like having toast with your breakfast as we do.

Add The scrambled eggs.

Next I remove the nests from the cupcake tin and place them on a serving platter. After which I use a spoon and scoop up some of the scrambled eggs placing them into each nests.

You might also have any jam or jelly that you prefer ready and serve along with the breakfast nest that you have created. Enjoy.......

Take my poll if you would.
