  • 2 large potatoes shredded
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 12 quail eggs
  • 4 sprigs rosemary fresh, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Grease 4 ramekins really well.
  • In a bowl, mix shredded potatoes, egg, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture in 4 and fill each ramekin with the shredded potato mixture, and press down in the middle to form a nest.
  • Bake the hash brown nests for about 30 minutes or until crisp and brown.
  • Crack 3 quail eggs in each nest and season with salt and pepper. Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your preference.
  • Arrange rosemary around the edge of the ramekins if preferred.


  1. Regular eggs could be used instead of quail eggs. You will need 4 eggs, 1 in each ramekin.
  2. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
