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!

4 rashers bacon
2 cups potato gems or hash browns – defrosted
½ teaspoon thyme
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven – moderate ( 190°C / 350°F)
Grease muffin tray
Slice half the bacon into strips and line the bottom of the muffin tins in a cross shape
Mash the potato gems and press into the muffin tins over the top of the bacon, creating a lining of little potato nests
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden
Remove from oven and add a sprinkle of chopped bacon and chopped mushrooms to each nest
Beat eggs and add thyme, salt and pepper.
Poor egg mixture into the nests
Bake for a further 15 minutes
Use a knife or spatula to scoop out nests, then serve hot and eat!
