24 oz bag of hash browns
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
2 tbs. oil
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2-3 strips bacon- cooked and chopped (optional)
This is what you do:
Take thawed hash browns, mix in 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, 2 tbs oil and about 1/3 c shredded cheddar cheese. Put mixture in a well greased muffin tin, and make a well in the center.
Bake at 425°F for 15-18 minutes.
Now, lower the oven to 350°F. Crack a medium egg into each “nest” and top with bacon bits, remaining cheese and parsley flakes.
I also chose to do half of these with beaten eggs.. I liked those more. Better consistency.
Bake for about 13-16 minutes.
Gently slide a knife along the edges, and gently pull up with a fork.
**Healthier variation: Morningstar breakfast patties... amazing!
