These little muffin nests are delish. The family loves them for a quick breakfest or to pack into the lunch bag for work to eat with the coffee. Co-workers are always curious and want one. I have baked these little Hens nests every other day since Christmas Eve.

How to Make Hens Breakfest Nest

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the hash browns, butter, salt and peppercorns. Stir well. "Pam" the Muffin tin. Press this mixture onto and on the sides of the muffin tins. (I also use muffin papper cups as well.)
  2. Bake the nest at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until brown little edges.
  3. While the nest is browning, dice up the half red pepper(Julianne style, and cut the green onion into small slices also.
  4. Cut the sausage link into 1/4 inch slices> I then stack three and quarter. Do all the sausage slices into quarters. Brown the sausage in frying pan. I also put a smig of olive oil if needed into my non stick pan.
  5. Time to take the nests out of the oven. Evenly distribute the sausage pieces into the bottoms of the nests.
  6. Combine and whip the eggs with a wisk.
  7. Add the cheese, dices red bell pepper and green onion to the whipped egg mixture.
  8. Use a large spoon to dip into the egg mixture and spoon over the sausage and into the nests. Make sure to not over load the nest. You have to use the spoon to get to the peppers and onion and cheese but also egg. Bake for 25 minutes.
  9. A few dashes of hot sauce if desired on top or use chives or onion to top.
