Looking for an elegant appetizer? This exciting recipe for Potato Nests is just the ticket! Grated potatoes get tossed with onions, egg, herbs, and Parmesan cheese, then pressed into a muffin pan and baked into golden and crispy nests. Fill them with a dollop of crème fraîche or sour cream, some hard-boiled quail eggs, and a sprinkle of chopped fresh chives. Perfect for Easter brunch, dinner, or a spring event.
To start, grate the potatoes and one onion, then squeeze them out in a clean tea towel to remove as much moisture as possible. Combine the veggies with flour, egg, dried herbs, chopped fresh chives, grated cheese, and salt and black pepper to taste in a large bowl. Divide the mixture evenly between the muffin cups of a standard 12-cup muffin pan and press the mixture against the bottom and up the sides, creating the nests. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and crisp. Dollop the crème fraîche or sour cream into the center of each still-warm nest and top with quail eggs and some chopped chives. Serve and enjoy!
