Potato Egg Nest


This Potato Egg Nest recipe is one of my favorite Easter breakfast dishes. These nests look so cute with their yellow egg yolk centers. Whenever I cook potatoes around Easter time, I always make sure I cook a bit extra so that I can make these delicious nests.

Take cooked potatoes and mash them, season with salt and pepper. Add bread crumbs, bacon, parsley and cheese and shape into potato patties. Using a small glass, make an indent in the center of each patty. Sprinkle with remaining bread crumbs and cheese. Place an egg yolk in the center of each patty and bake in the oven. Simple and delicious!

To make Potato Egg Nest, you will need the following ingredients:
