Delicious Breakfast Nests


Ok so I’ve been trying to get Butters to help out, but she’s becoming a rebellious teenager and good luck her lifting a finger to help me cook these delicious Bacon and egg nests! I think she prefers to play.

If you’re like me you love bacon, and also love breakfast.So when I made these hashbrown nests I ate four in one sitting…I probably wouldn’t recommend that haha!

How to make Mini Lasagna Muffins | Cooking with Butters

Delicious layers of meat sauce, cheese and pasta to make mini, muffin sized lasagnas.

Makes 12


  • 500 grams / 1.1 pound minced beef
  • 500 grams / 1.1 pound favorite pasta sauce (I used Leggos Red Wine Bolognese)
  • Fresh Lasagna sheets OR 24 Wanton Wrappers (wonton wrappers are thinner but when cooked are crunchier)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • (optional) 2 tbsp red wine added to sauce
  • 300g / 10.5 oz Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 250ml / 8.4 oz Crème Fraiche



Pre-heat oven to 190 °C / 375 °F

Spray muffin tray with cooking oil

Using a dollop of olive oil, gently sauté the garlic

Add the beef and brown, season with salt and pepper

Add pasta sauce and cook until thick

In a separate bowl mix crème fraiche and parmesan together

Start layering your mini lasagnas as follows:Press 1 wanton wrapper in the muffin tray and then press a second one over the top to fill the gaps OR cut fresh lasagna sheets into squares and press one on top on the other in the muffin tray

Add a dollop of crème fraiche mixture, followed by a little meat sauce, followed by a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese.

Repeat the layers again, finishing with the mozzarella cheese

Bake for 20 minutes or until brown around the edges. Remove from oven and let cool in muffin tray for 5 minutes. To remove use the blunt edge of a knife to loosen the edges, then pop each lasagna out of the muffin tin

Serve hot and enjoy!
