Yummy, Easy Bird's Nest Meal

Pin It Now!

This is our family's new, favorite lunch!!! I love simple and healthy recipes, so when I originally saw this "bird's nest" here, I knew I HAD to try it! (There are more photos on the original post, too.)
You only need 3 ingredients (besides salt and pepper)!!

  • Potatoes (2 large shredded potatoes were enough for my 3 kids and me)
  • eggs (one for each nest)
  • Butter (optional--I used real butter)

** Shred your potatoes. Heat skillet to medium and melt a pat of butter. I use one of those large, plug-in skillets, and I heat it up between 350-400 degrees. Plop shredded potato onto skillet and arrange it into the shape of a nest, complete with a hole in the middle. Cook 4-5 minutes. Now crack an egg over the hole, sprinkle with salt and pepper if you wish, and cook for 3-5 more minutes. Flip entire nest over and cook until done. I like my yolk firmly cooked!! My kids like to add a little ketchup, and my hubby likes to add hot sauce.

This meal would work for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It totally works for me!

Now this looks like a fun thing to try for the kids! I know they will think it is cool (even though 2 out of 4 don't love potatoes of any kind).
