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!
