Ham & Cheese Hashbrown Nests

November 17, 2017

I'm a big fan of simple, easy dinners, and this recipe is just that. It requires minimal ingredients, including Simply Potato® shredded hashbrowns which cut out a good chunk of prep work. They are fresh, not frozen so you don't have to add extra thawing time. The recipe comes together quickly and doesn't have a long cook time which makes it perfect for busy mornings or hectic school nights.

Here's how you make it! 

Ham & Cheese Hashbrown Nests 

3 cups Simply Potato® shredded hashbrowns
2 cups shredded cheddar (or other cheese)
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Thin sliced ham (deli is fine)
4 eggs 

1. Set the oven to 425
2. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray
3. In a bowl mix the hashbrowns, olive oil, 1 cup cheese, salt and pepper. 
4. Press the hashbrowns down into the muffin tins, making sure to pack it against the sides and bottom and leaving a well in the middle. 
5. Bake for approx. 15 minutes until the hashbrowns are set. 
6. Layer ham and cheese into the middle of the hashbrowns, then add one egg on top. You can pour the egg in as is, or scramble it first if you prefer. I found one egg to be enough for about 3 nests. 
7. Return the pan to the oven for approx. 15 minutes, or until the eggs are set. 
8. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool slightly. Slide a knife around the edges of each nest to loosen it, then remove from pan gently. 

And that's it! What I love most about this dish is that you can customize it to your own tastes. Other deli meats can easily be swapped out for the ham, and you can use pretty much any cheese you prefer. Pepper Jack would be great for those looking for more of a kick, or even a creamy gouda. 

You can find Simply Potatoes at your grocery store in the refrigerated breakfast section. Mine was near the eggs, sausage, and bacon. And you can click HERE for even more recipes!
