Hashbrown Nests with Eggs and Cheese


  • 1 carton (4.2 oz.) Hungry Jack® Original Hashbrown Potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil such as safflower or canola
  • 6 slices American cheese, each slice cut into four quarters
  • 6 large eggs
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped bacon (cooked)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • cooking spray


  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. Fill hashbrowns carton to fill line with hot water. Let stand 12 minutes. Drain very well. Transfer potatoes to a mixing bowl and mix in the oil.
  3. Scoop potatoes into each muffin cup, forming a nest. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  4. Beat eggs in a mixing bowl. Heat a large non-stick skillet. Melt the butter in the pan, add the eggs and gently cook over low heat, stirring and breaking up any large curds. Cook eggs for 5 minutes, or until creamy and soft enough to easily scoop with a spoon. Season to taste with salt. Place two small cheese squares in the potato-lined muffin cup and top with about a tablespoon of the scrambled eggs. Sprinkle each muffin cup with chopped bacon.
  5. Bake nests for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Gently run a butter knife around the edge of each muffin cup to loosen. Allow nests to cool for 5 minutes then remove from pan and serve.
