Quail Eggs in Hash Browns Nests – the most adorable breakfast or brunch idea yet.
Just when I thought I’d used the last of the quail eggs my husband bought, he went and got some more! So back to the drawing board for me to try and figure out what else to make with them. I love quail eggs, I think they’re adorable but the thing that really bugs me about them is cracking them open. You really have to be careful so as not to break them, because they’re very tiny.
Well eggs are perfect for breakfast, anyone knows that, so I thought making nests from hash browns would be so cute and adorable. To make the nest is really easy, I basically just grated some potatoes, added an egg and some parmesan cheese for extra flavor and filled the ramekins with the potato mixture, pressing down in the middle to make room for the eggs. I baked the hash browns for about 20 to 30 minutes or until they turned brown. As you can see in this picture I used my small ramekins and I was able to crack 3 eggs in each nest. I probably could have fit 4 eggs in each. So after you crack the eggs just bake for another 5 minutes or so until the eggs are cooked to your preference. I thought it would be a great idea if I ad some rosemary around the edge of the ramekins just for the extra special effect.
Aren’t these the cutest little breakfast nests you’ve ever seen. I think it’s a great idea and they would be so perfect for a brunch. So next time you’re having brunch at your house, try these hash browns nests with eggs.
