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.

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 other goodies. 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.

Equipment

  • 1 12-cup muffin tin
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • paper towels to blot excess moisture from the potatoes

Ingredients
  

  • 30 oz. bag frozen hash browns completely thawed
  • 1 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded (or the grated cheese from a can)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Defrost and thaw potatoes.
  • Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.
  • (Olive oil, avocado or coconut oil all work well).
  • Drain out all the liquid from the potatoes and press dry with paper towels (so the potatoes will crisp up while baking).
  • Squeeze out all excess liquid until you’ve removed all of it.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add green onions, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and olive oil.
  • Stir ingredients well to combine.
  • Press potato mixture firmly into muffin tins and mound slightly.
  • Bake in a preheated 400º oven for about 45 minutes, or until potato nests are crispy.

Notes

NOTE: The hash browns can also be made ahead and baked the next day. Simply store the muffin tins with hash brown mixture covered tightly with plastic wrap overnight. Then bake the next day for 45-60 minutes until hash browns are crispy.
 
NOTE: It is imperative that you squeeze every last bit of liquid out of the potatoes before making this recipe or the potatoes won’t crisp up enough.
 
NOTE: I packed the potatoes into the muffin tins. Then I mounded them slightly on top.
