I saw this posted on my friend's Facebook page and can't wait to try it on our next camping excursion.

Ingredients

1
20 ounce package pre-shredded hash brown-style potatoes
2
large eggs, lightly beaten
4 Tbsp
flour
1
small sweet onion, coarsely grated
2
thick slices deli ham, chopped into small bits (about 1 cup)
1 c
shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 c
grated parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1
dozen eggs, scrambled
chives for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F., and lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
2
Mix the first seven ingredients together in a large bowl. (Substitute bacon or sausage for the ham, if preferred)
3
Spoon potato mixture into each prepared muffin cup until about 1/3 full. Gently press the potato mixture down in the middle and up the sides of each cup.
4
Bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. If the nests have puffed up too much in the center, scoop out a little with a teaspoon.
5
Spoon a few tablespoons of scramble eggs into each nest and top with chives.

Thanks for getting back to me! I am sorry to hear about your foot! I went through that twice in the past. It isn't fun.

I'm guessing it might be sour cream and tomato or pimento.

And my apologies for the delayed response. I broke my foot on vacation and haven't been on the site since last month.

I am not understanding what the red and white topping is (Raspberry? Yogurt?) I do not see any chives. This looks delicious!

Thanks for bringing that error to my attention, Crystal. It should read "first seven." I'll change it.
Chris, I wouldn't think it would work in a mini muffin paper, but I haven't tried it. I think I'd try using more spray or shortening first.
