Eggs in Nests

Today was a beautiful almost spring day, and I wanted a beautiful spring breakfast to match. So I made these...

Eggs in Nests

1 cup grated potato
1 ounce grated sharp cheddar
6 eggs
cracked salt & pepper

How easy is this? Preheat the oven to 400. Spray a 6 cavity muffin tin with cooking spray. Mix a little cracked salt and pepper into the grated potato. Evenly distribute the grated potato through the 6 muffin cups and press into the bottoms and up the sides to make "nests." Next, distribute the cheese into the bottom of each cup. Press down into the bottom.  Crack an egg on top of each of the cups, then crack fresh pepper and salt over the top to taste.  Bake 15-20 minutes, until eggs are done and edges are crispy.  Use a spatula to loosen and remove the nests. 

These were soooo delicious with some grilled ham, and elegant enough to serve with crepes and prosciutto for  breakfast if we have guests. Yum!!
