NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Bake the potatoes until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Allow to cool, and then peel and grate them. Season well with salt and pepper.

Spray two 12-hole muffin pans generously with cooking spray. Scoop 3 to 4 tablespoons of grated potato into each muffin hole. Use your fingers to gently press down the sides and bottom in each muffin hole to make a nest. Spray again with cooking spray. Then bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch and make sure they do not burn.

Allow the nests to cool. Then crack an egg into each one. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake until the whites are set, about 15 minutes.

Have an ideas. Why could you defrost frozen has brown and use them. So much simplier . . . do you think it would work????? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe for a business working group. I don't mind recipes with a lot of steps but this recipe had several flaws. I grated the baked potatoes in my food processor. The starch from the cooked baked potatoes came up and literally glued the process lid to the blade. So, the potatoes were gummy. I tried to use as few grated potatoes as possible to fill each muffin cup so it wouldn't be too thick. I added sauteed finely minced bacon, red pepper and onion to the potatoes to give me them some flavor too. When i was ready to add the large eggs, I had trouble with the eggs running over the muffin cup holes. When the whole thing was finally baked, I had to peel off the egg whites that had spilled over. I think one should use medium or even small eggs. I have to admit my business associates loved the taste of the whole thing and ate all but three which someone took away. I did top each egg off with some grated cheddar cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We love this recipe. I use ramekins for easy serving. Add cheese and cooked bacon or sausage before adding the egg. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Try adding prosciutto Just cut strips of prosciutto on half and put over the cooked potatoes then add the egg. top with chives. really good. As for saving the recipe, I just scroll over it and copy it. I send an email to myself and save in a folder labeled recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
There's better recipes for this out there. I had to completely change the recipe to make it good. Anytime you have to put that much change into a recipe, it is not a good recipe. I should have expected this would be a fail since that seems to be my experience with anything from Ree Drummond. Disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Problem: One must use copious amounts of spray to release the egg nests. Problem: The spray has a HORRIBLE chemical taste when cooked. Problem: The spray is also VERY expensive. Question: What is the point of paying a lot of money for a product that makes food taste bad? Is there a particular brand that has no taste? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this morning... I added breakfast sausage and onions on top of the hash browns, then the egg. Delicious! Turned out well and will try with bacon next time :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Can anyone tell me how to save this recipe to my recipe box??????? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just saw this episode this morning. As I was watching, I was thinking that the first step, baking the potatoes, could be skipped to shorten the cooking time and avoid the super starchy issue. I plan to shred raw potatoes, onions and peppers, press them in the tins and bake. Once the hash brown cups are baked, add the rest of the desired toppings and eggs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
yeah, I really don't care for her show either. Something about her annoys me lol item not reviewed by moderator and published
You are certainly entitled to your opinion. I have great success with recipes. Particularly since she's cooking for large groups. I too have larger family and find her recipes easy to do and family loves item not reviewed by moderator and published
Maybe try in silicone pan or cup pa n fry raw hash browns first , use butter instead of spray with a touch of garlic powder just to taste, there must be acid in the spray, eggs, or potatoes any use of metal pan,sounds good has to be a way around this item not reviewed by moderator and published
How about using a pastry brush and brush oil of your choice in each cup. It's neater and cleaner and doesn't take that much more time to do. Same with finishing the potatoes before baking. Just brush oil lightly over the potatoes. I like using peanut oil with anything potato. Hope this works for you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
try using olive oil spray. item not reviewed by moderator and published
get a mister and put in the oil of your choice item not reviewed by moderator and published
Top left corner of the recipe box . along the outer border - you will see four boxes - red and white - The first is to Print - the 2nd box looks like a RED RIBBON - if the click that box you can SAVE recipe.. this applies to any FoodNetwork Recipe... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks for the reply. On most of the recipes I pull up, those red and white boxes don't show up. Like this one, there are none on my computer screen. And on the ones that the boxes do come up, when I press the save icon, I get an hour glass and then nothing happens. Food Network keeps ignoring my requests for help, so thanks for your response!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
