Breakfast Egg Nests Recipe

Course Breakfast
Author Ann-Marie Rohe / Chaos Is Bliss


  • 1 box Betty Crocker Seasoned Skillets Hash Brown Potatoes
  • 1 2/3 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 5 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 5-6 green onions chopped
  • 12 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin. Prepare Betty Crocker hash browns according to package instructions.
  2. Place cooked hash browns into a medium bowl, mix in crumbled bacon and half of the green onions.
  3. Use a muffin scoop to place about 1/2 cup of hash browns into each muffin cup, and press firmly so the potatoes go up the sides a bit, making the nest.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 400°, then remove and reduce oven temp to 350°.
  5. Gently crack eggs one at a time and pour into each muffin cup. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes, until egg is firm and not runny.

  6. After bake time, remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes. Use a knife to slide around each nest before removing to a plate or serving platter.

  7. Season with salt and pepper, and toss remaining green onion on top before serving.
