Potato Hash Egg Nests

Just in time for Easter.......

Of course, I couldn't wait until Sunday to make them, I had to try them out today the day before. So for Easter we may be having some sort of Strata instead-oopsie.

I saw Pioneer Woman's take on these last weekend and decided to try my own version. 

The whole family loved them.

And bonus....these are Vegetarian friendly and Gluten free!!!

This recipe is adapted from The Pioneer Woman

4-5 large russet potatoes
1tsp salt and pepper
6 eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. In a pan large enough to hold the potatoes, cover with water an inch above the potatoes. 
  3. Bring to a low boil and cook until almost tender about 18-20 minutes. 
  4. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes, then drain until cool enough to peel.
  5. Shred using a hand grater.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss gently to distribute seasoning.
  7. Spray a large 6 cup muffin tin with non stick spray.
  8. Mound 1/2 cup or more potatoes in each well and gently spread out and up the sides, slightly spilling outside is okay. Don't compact the potatoes. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  9. Place in the preheated oven and bake about 20 minutes until slightly browned. 
  10. Take out of the oven and crack an egg into each cup. Reduce the oven temp to 400F. 
  11. Place muffin tin back in the oven for approximately 9-10 minutes for a set white and creamy yolk or longer if you like your eggs more set.
  12.  Season with more salt and pepper if desired.
