1 (3 1/2-cup) bag frozen shredded potatoes, defrosted
1/4 cup vegetable oil or butter (+1 Tablespoon)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup finely diced onions
1/3 cup finely diced bell peppers
3/4 cup cooked sausage
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, toss together the potatoes, the oil or butter, salt, and pepper. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the potato mixture into each cup of a 12-serving muffin tin. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of each cup, then bake until golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes. Remove the nests from the oven and allow them to cool.
Fill each muffin cup with some of the egg mixture, top with a sprinkling of the cheese.
Place the nests in a 375° oven until the cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.
Serve and enjoy!!
A fun meal addition!!
