What is an egg white nest in hash browns?

My friend Mary gave me this recipe in 2011 when I first started blogging. Since then, I’ve been making it regularly as a quick breakfast dish. They are morsels of egg whites with a hash brown crust baked in muffin tins.

how to make

To make a nest, simply mix up shredded potatoes (or frozen hash browns) and bake. Once golden, the nest is filled with a mixture of egg whites and ingredients such as vegetables, cheese and herbs. You can customize your nest with different ingredients to suit your tastes and preferences.

helpful tips

Spray cans liberally and use nonstick muffin tins to prevent sticking.

This recipe can easily be doubled.

preempt and reheat

You can double the recipe for meal prep. Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 4 days. To reheat, follow these steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the nest on a baking sheet and place in the oven.
  3. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until nest is hot and eggs are hot.
  4. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the nest cool for a few minutes before serving.

Alternatively, you can reheat in an air fryer or microwave. To do so, heat in an air fryer at 350F for 5 minutes or until done. For microwave, place on microwave-safe plate and heat over high heat for 1-2 minutes, or to medium.
