Hash Brown Egg Nests with Smoked Salmon

Hash Brown Egg Nests with Smoked Salmon

My sweet husband came home from Whole Foods the other day with a special treat, smoked salmon!

Not just smoked salmon, but tequila lime marinated smoked salmon. Yeah. Amazing.

Hard as it was to not devour the whole thing straight from the package, I managed to save a little for breakfast the next morning. 

Inspired by one of my favorite bloggers The Pioneer Woman, (her recipe for Eggs in Hash Brown Nests here), the following is my rendition.

Hash Brown Egg Nests with Smoked Salmon

Frozen hash browns (3 tablespoons per egg)
Cooking spray
Large eggs (how ever many you want to make)
Shredded smoked cheese (1 tablespoon per egg)
Fresh green onions or chives
Salt and pepper
Smoked salmon (or any topping that you like)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Cook the hash browns in a skillet on the stove-top according to package directions. I like to get them lightly browned but not too crispy. Season with salt and pepper and set aside to cool.

Spray a muffin pan lightly with cooking spray. Scoop 2 to 3 tablespoons of the cooked hash browns into each muffin cup. Use your fingers to gently press the cooked hash browns into the bottom and  sides of the muffin cup to make a nest.

Sprinkle a pinch of shredded cheese in each cup. Next, crack an egg into each nest. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with chopped fresh green onions or chives and top with shredded cheese.

Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. They are done when the whites are set and the potato nests are golden brown.  

Lightly scrape around the muffin with a butter knife to loosen the nests, they should fall out easily.  Serve with your choice of meat (sausage, bacon, smoked fish etc.) piled on top.
