Hash Brown Potato Nests
Gluten Free Living – 2022
Hash Brown Potato Nests are awesome. What a fantastic idea for a weekend, company or holiday breakfast menu! These lovely Potato Nests are baked in muffin tins and are so incredibly delicious yet not too difficult to make. On top of that, they’re made with wholesome ingredients so they’re gluten free. If you want to substitute some other ingredient for the parmesan cheese, you can even make them vegan.
Back in May our weekly Bible Study group had a “Breakfast for Dinner” night. One of the girls brought this heavenly recipe. I ate four of them that night! 🙂 I asked for the recipe and decided I was going to make these for my next breakfast opportunity. We had a morning prayer group over and I served these along with some Pecan Cinnamon Rolls and Fried Apples and Sausage. They were a hit again!
Hash Brown Potato Nests really are great for a large country style breakfast. Whether you serve this with bacon and eggs, breakfast casseroles or Sausage and gravy with biscuits, these adorable Potato Nests will be a winner.
Hash Brown Potato Nests are heavenly!
These lovely potato nests are baked in muffin tins!
While these are seasoned pretty simply, the potato nests taste really wonderful because of the addition of green onions and Parmesan cheese.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Thaw frozen potatoes completely. Press potatoes between paper towels and continue this process until you get as much excess liquid out of the potatoes as possible. They will brown up and crisp up better if you do this.
Place the potatoes into a mixing bowl.
Add green onions, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and olive oil.
Stir ingredients well to combine.
Spray muffin tins really well with cooking spray. Mound up potatoes into each muffin tin and press down slightly.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Remove from oven.
Remove Hash Brown Potato Nests from individual muffin tins and serve hot.
This delightful breakfast option is gluten free.
Hash Brown Potato Nests were deliciously crunchy, but not tough.
Here’s the recipe.
