Optional mix-ins: onion, pepper, mushroom, spinach


  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 1/2 cup cheese, and salt and pepper. Divide the hash brown mixture evenly in the muffin cups. Use your fingers to pack them tightly and shape them into nests or press down with a small measuring cup.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until the edges have browned. Remove nests from oven and reduce temperature to 350 F.
  4. Crack a small egg into each nest. At this point, add in any additional mix-ins (such as onion, pepper, mushroom, and/or spinach). Top with a sprinkle of cheese and diced bacon.
  5. Bake at 350 F until the egg whites are set, about 12-15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
