This is a really easy dish to prepare, and it looks so darn cute!
It is also a great dish to serve on a buffet table because each serving is completely self-contained and can just be picked up and popped on a plate.
1 20 ounce package pre-shredded hash brown-style potatoes
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons flour
1 small sweet onion, coarsely grated
2 thick slices deli ham, chopped into small bits (about 1 cup)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 dozen eggs, scrambled*
chives for garnish
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F., and lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
Mix the first eight ingredients together in a large bowl.
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.
Bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.
If the nests have puffed up too much in the centre, scoop out a little with a teaspoon.
Spoon a few tablespoons of scramble eggs into each nest and top with chives.
