How to make Hash Brown Egg Nests with Avocado

Step 1: Ina mixing bowl, combine the shredded hash browns, a cup of cheddar cheese, olive oil, and salt and pepper.

Step 2: Divide the hash brown mixture in a greased non-stick regular pan, packing them up tightly using your fingers and shaping them into nests.

Step 3: Place in the preheated 425 degrees F oven and bake for about 15 minutes until the edges are brown and the cheese has melted.

Step 4: Into each nest, crack a medium egg. To taste, season with salt and pepper. Then, top with the crumbled bacon, the rest of the cheddar cheese, and parsley.

Step 5: Place in a 350 degrees F oven and bake for approximately 13 to 16 minutes until the egg whites are set.

Step 6: Remove from the oven when done and allow the nests to cool before gently sliding a knife along the edges. Then, lift the nest out of the pan using a fork.

Step 7: If desired, serve with slices of chilled avocado. Enjoy!

NOTE:

You can bake 4 to 6 russet potatoes and use them in place of frozen shredded hash browns. Allow the potatoes to cool before peeling and grating them.
