idaho sunrise part two

I thought this little treat up yesterday and had to make it today. So, here is is~hot from the oven and onto the site! It was YUMMY! And great if you don’t happen to have baked potatoes for the original Idaho sunrise.

What are they? Hash brown baskets baked with eggs,bacon and cheese. I was thinking of calling them birds’ nests-but I think that’s an Easter confection…hmmmm.

How to do it:

take a bag (24oz) of thawed hash browns, mix in 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, 2 tbs oil and about 1/3 c shredded cheddar cheese. Put then in a well greased muffin tin, and make a well in the center.

Bake at 425°F for 15-18 minutes, cover with foil if the edges appear to be getting too brown.

They should look kinda like this when they are ready. Now, lower the oven to 350°F. Crack a medium egg into each “nest” and top with bacon bits, cheese and parsley flakes.

Bake for about 13-16 minutes.

Gentle slide a knife along the edges, and gently pull up with a fork.

you could also fill these with beaten eggs and a bit of spinach…. that was my afterthought. Hmmm…maybe i will make that tomorrow.

Oh! By the way, there is this site- Foodbuzz and everyday, they have a “daily special”. Last week it was these neat silicone ball whisks… so, I ordered one and got an awesome deal through the foodbuzz link. Be sure and check it out- I’m super happy with the deal I got last week, so I thought I’d share with y’all. :) http://www.foodbuzz.com/daily special I think today they are offering the Cuisinart Griddler for 57% off….wow that’s a good deal….hmmmm.
