Eggs in a Nest
Skip the frozen foods aisle the next time you're at the grocery store and try these savory
eggs in a nest
for the whole family!
Nonstick olive oil spray
frozen shredded potatoes
large egg whites
fat free milk
Green bell pepper
lean ground turkey sausage, crumbled and patted to remove excess oil
–Part skim mozzarella cheese
Pair each serving with:
glass of milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a 12-well muffin tin with nonstick olive oil spray liberally.
Press a scoop of shredded potatoes into each muffin tin, pressing up and around the edges to create a “nest”.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.
Remove the pan from the oven and using a spoon, gently press any fallen potatoes back up against the sides of each muffin hole.
Turn the oven heat down to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, add eggs, egg whites, 1/4 cup milk, salt and pepper.
Whisk to combine and allow to sit in the fridge while preparing green pepper, tomatoes or any additional vegetables desired, to allow the eggs to break down a little, and become fluffier.
Stir cooked meat and vegetables into the bowl with egg mixture and pour equally between all “nests.”
Sprinkle a pinch of cheese over each nest.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until egg is set.
Remove from oven and serve with remaining 8-ounce glass of milk. Enjoy!
Nests can also be stored in airtight bags in fridge once cool for 3-4 days, and be reheated for breakfasts on-the -go, paired with an 8-ounce glass of milk
