What are Hash Brown Egg White Nests?

When I first started blogging, my friend Mary shared this recipe with me back in 2011. Since then, I’ve been making them regularly as an easy breakfast dish. They are egg white bites with a hash brown crust baked in a muffin tin.

How To Make

To create the nest, you simply mix together shredded potatoes (or frozen hash browns) and bake them. Once they are golden brown, fill the nest with a mixture of beaten egg whites and other ingredients like vegetables, cheese, and herbs. You can customize the nests with a variety of different ingredients to suit your tastes and preferences.

Helpful Tip

Be sure to generously spray the tin and use a non-stick muffin pan to avoid sticking.

This recipe can easily be doubled.

Make Ahead and Reheat

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

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

Alternatively, you can also reheat them in the air fryer or microwave. To do so, air fryer 350F for 5 minutes or until heated through. For the microwave, place on a microwave-safe plate and heat on high for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through.
